Review: Mafia III

by Nazih Fareson October 18, 2016
Let’s start very easily with a quick statement: While it’s quite a niche series, I myself was eagerly waiting for Mafia III. Admittedly considered as a revival of a cult license after 6 years of silence, this was not an easy task for 2K’s newest studio, Hangar 13, led by Haden Blackman (worked on games […]


Review: NBA 2K17

by Nazih Fareson October 4, 2016
Another year, another NBA 2K game emerges.

Finally with the game in hand, the new year’s […]
