Games We Dig – The Witness

February 22, 2016By YmirGames We Dig

I went into the Witness a bit biased. Biased, not because I was spoiled on some part of the plot (what plot?), but because of certain negative reviews and some negative feedback from friends. However, Dr. Random, rather easily, talked me, or bought me, into trying the game and I was immediately hooked! Approximately 500 … Read More

They did not teach me how to fire guns, dodge cars and climb a train carriage that is dangling … Read More
