Dragon Age Inquisition Review

Dragon Age InquisitionPicked up Dragon Age Inquisition for my PS4 on the day of its release, hoping that this game would make up for the faults of its predecessor, and, well, I can’t stop playing it. So much so, I haven’t even touched my Far Cry 4 yet. Currently, I’ve already clocked over 35 hours into the game – eating up most of my playing time are all the side quests, such as, picking up herbs and materials to craft new items. I haven’t even gone through half of the main story, which i have to say is a pretty decent story, but far from perfect.

Revoltech Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

tmntI’m not the biggest fan of TMNT (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), but I’ve been fan of the toys and been collecting the various Playmates Toys TMNT figures.  Not to confuse non-fans, but there are 3 product lines of the Turtles in a Half Shell, 1) the classic line of figures, 2) the Nickelodeon cartoon figures, and 3) the movie version figures.  If you’re not satisfy with the Playmates toys, then I suggest the pricey Kaiyodo Revoltech figures which offers cool packaging if you’re into that stuff, more articulation and accessories for pose-ability.
