Who is the Winter Wyvern? (Part 2)

From playtesting different builds, I best like Winter Wyvern in the Support role. I first tried playing Winter Wyvern as a DPS hero (a hero who has a high damage output though its physical attacks) but that role was a complete wash-out. Besides the pathetically low damage that it deals, Winter Wyvern just does not…

Set in the mid-20th Century, The Imitation Game tells the true story of how Alan Turing helped the Allied Powers win WWII by creating a super computer that could decrypt Nazi codes believed to be unbreakable. And just when I thought the…

Pokemon ORAS: a worthy remake?

Pokemon ORAS (Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire) is simply the best version of Pokemon I’ve ever played. $50 for a straight 24 hours of game play to reach the Elite 4 was a more than satisfying romp through a familiar storyline, supported by awesome new graphics, and a refreshed playstyle. Pokemon ORAS is a remake…
