You craved scoops and post-release coverage (phew!), and you enjoyed getting excited about the Final Fantasy VII remake. You also liked reading about sex. Hey, nothing bad about that!…
It’s not just the Christmas season that seems to start earlier each year. The year-in-review season is on its way to a November launch, too. We hold out as long as possible, to give the full 12 months our consideration, but we did spend part of last week assessing the states of the PS4, Xbox One and Wii U in 2015.…
