Breaking my Back(log): Destiny 2

When I built my new computer a couple months back, I purchased a Nvidia 1080.

Luckily for me, at the time, Nvidia was running a promotion: buy a 1060, 1070, or 1080 and get Destiny 2 for free. I’m excited to say, it took me much less time to pick up and play Destiny 2, than most newer games I purchase.

A Summoner’s Journey Part I

Let's talk about League of Legends (LoL). For those who don’t know, the game was created by Riot Games and was released on October 27th 2009. The game has done nothing but grow, and since July 2011, LoL has consistently ranked as the most popular game in terms of total hours played. According to the most recent statistics offered by social gaming site Raptr, LoL continues to be the most played game on PC...and not by a small margin.
