Rated PG

On 3DS, Wii U, and PC

This may not come as much of a surprise but I have an imagination probably best described as overactive. So a game like Scribblenauts is right up my alley.

I hear all the cool kids are playing Bioshock 2 at the moment.

I’m not one of the cool kids.

And I don’t like the idea of paying top dollar for new release games.
