The First Three Year at Hogwarts: What I Learned from Each Book

I remember my co-worker, a big Harry Potter fan looked at me in shock when I told her that I have not read the books. She said jokingly that she won’t be my friend until I read Harry Potter. That was a few years ago. It’s not that I didn’t care, I just didn’t see the magic and … Continue reading The First Three Year at Hogwarts: What I Learned from Each Book

The Garden of Sinners (2007) Review: The Story that Romanticized a Murderer

The Cat Lady PC Game Review (2012): Great Game to Play to Beat the Blues

Fun adventure Horror game

Sometimes great games are not always pleasing to look at. The characters in this game have long limbs and are colorless and tend to look like a man even though it’s meant to be a woman.
