    I'm from the U.S., but based on my trips to Canada my advice would be that if you aren't already into it, you should learn at least a little bit about hockey. It's more of a social literacy thing tha...

  • TheRealTurk posted a message in the forum topic What do you think about Onimusha: Warlords Remastered?. on the Onimusha: Warlords board

    I remember being mildly fond of it when it came out, but I'm pretty sure that the gameplay will not have aged well. It was a weird combination of Resident Evil and Ninja Gaiden kind of gameplay.
