As the title suggests Warhammer Inquisitor Martyr or Inquisitor from here on in is a game set in the Warhammer 40K universe that borrows liberally from Diablo. Surprisingly, this combination […]
Extinction Review – Shallow Mix Of Attack On Titan And Shadow Of The Colossus Is Easier On The Eye Than The Fingers
