Xbox One Review: Skylanders SuperChargers

skylanders superchargers review

  Admittedly, I’m not the target demographic for the Skylanders games. I’m almost 32 years-old. I have an advanced degree. The closest thing I have to a kid is my border collie, Prince.

Review: Mad Max

Mad Max Review

The game constantly puts you in scenarios where good reflexes and quick thinking are key, yet also gives you little ammo and health to complete your missions.
