Shadow of the Colossus Review

  You remember the first time you met someone who hadn’t seen the Godfather, or read Harry Potter? That look of grim fascination you have them as you peppered them with questions? Questions like, “How have you existed so long without experiencing this thing?” It’s not necessarily a criticism of the person’s character, but you…

The Shrouded Isle Review
