I’m not going to lie, I’ve played Candy Crush. However, it is not installed on any of my devices and it’s not a game I particularly enjoy, yet everyone seemingly does and I just don’t get it.
While you might not know it from going to the stores, it’s Thanksgiving. And that means it’s time to be thankful for the good things in life. Health, safety, employment and, of course, video games. Gaming is a big part of my life and if I’m honest with myself, they’ve had a part in shaping […]

Valve is here to save the day! Or are they? Can they? Should they?
