Dragon Age Origins Awakening Expansion Review

Just 3 months after Bioware released their D&D Dragon Age Origins game, they release a brand new expansion pack and hints the true sequel will follow next year in 2011. Not a bad thing...

What Did I Do To Deserve This, My Lord!? 3D Review

"What Did I Do To Deserve This, My Lord" doesn't seem to be getting much attention in the West and I doubt its name change after finding it clashed with an old Batman TV show helps at all.

One of them is Perfect World (完美世界) from Chinese developers originally released back in 2005 in China before it hit the Western world in 2008. I thought I'd give it a try since it looked...
