This War of Mine Review

In Reviews by Caleb "Soapbox" LottLeave a Comment

War. War may never change, but can our perspective of it in games change? How many games do we play as a participant of combat, mowing down countless masses of faceless foes? H***, it was not long ago that the newest Call of Duty title was released. Some games do …
