11th October, 2012

If an app does these things well I will be interested. If it performs these functions, along with some other awesome stuff, then I will be really impressed.

4 Reasons Why Mists Of Pandaria Makes WOW Worth Going Back To [MUO Gaming]

9th October, 2012

The latest World of Warcraft expansion has been on the market for a couple weeks, and I have been able to spend far too many hours playing it.
