    I like the aesthetic and setting, story could go either way. Dan's criticisms feel so nitpicky and we don't really get a good look at how he doesn't like the gameplay in this quicklook. There's proba...

    I generally prefer Pepsi over Coke, but I won't raise a stink if Coke is the only option. If I'm at, say, a 711 and there's options I'd take a chocolate milk, iced tea or Jones/Stewarts/Boylan soda ov...
