Game Review: Portal 2

May 23, 2011
By

I need to start by saying that I’m not actually done with this game, but I need to get a review out soon before it becomes irrelevant.  I was going to my local game store to buy L.A. Noir, but it didn’t come out for another two days, so I bought Portal 2. I’m...

May 23, 2011

I want to start this review by saying that I just got a score of 420 on Snake. Now to Thor. For those deprived individuals among you who don’t know, Thor is the bad*** Norse god of thunder. Thursday is named after him. In the 60′s, Stan Lee decided to give him his own...
