Blockbuster Video going out of business was a long time coming. In fact, many (like myself) thought they were already dead and buried but the final nail came recently with all stores closing. This isn’t an ode to Blockbuster saying they should have stayed in business or how they failed to keep up with streaming […]
When you see a description of game that includes the phrase “permanent death” it sounds pretty serious. I have to admit that I never knew exactly what that meant. Part of me assumed it meant you could only play the game once but I knew that was ridiculous. But then as I played games that […]
