    Futureshop and Best Buy have been accepting used games for trades for a long while now, and like all major stores, they give you peanuts for what you paid full price for. Lately I noticed that Futureshops and Best Buys in Canada have been making a serious effort to put out actual deals for games. They have done some great sales during E3 and have some nice pre-order deals or bonuses, but one of the nicest ones is the trade-ins. The gist of it is that you ...

  2. Payday: The Heist - No Mercy DLC Impressions [Pre-cursor to Left 4 Dead]

    Ever wonder what happened to cause the huge zombie apocalypse that was the centerpiece of Left 4 Dead? Well look no further, the newest free DLC from Payday: The Heist answers the question. Payday is a game that was heavily inspired by the Left 4 Dead franchise, using many of the same cooperative gameplay mechanics but in a different setting.

    Having an odd hobby of reading about history, I stumbled across the topic of the Imjin War some time ago. The Imjin War was a clash of Asian superpowers in the 16th century where Japanese forces planned a Chinese invasion.

The pair travel through the lands in an effort to return Holo to her homeland, but throughout their travels they encounter chances for Lawrence to show off his skills as a merchant. Taking advantage of Holo's aged wisdom, Lawrence gambles big ...
