Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

        They work in IE 11, but since the hand icon is used everywhere (?), you have to guess where the links are. The chatty is the same.

      I'm guessing that the "The Banner Saga: Factions" is a free MP version of "The Banner Saga" with a bunch of unlock DLC. Yes?

      Use the promo code SUPERNOVA25 at the Indiegala store for an additional 25% off. Not sure if it works for all games but it worked for Arkham Origins for me. Also brings Shadow of Mordor to $25.

              I'm getting my copy today. We'll see if it's the PC or XB0ner version. If it's the XB0ner version, I'm sending that crap back!

                My son contacted customer service. They refunded his $20 and told him to keep the Xbox version.
