Braid: Let the Games Begin

So as many of you will soon find, I am not much of a true gamer at all… I am absolutely horrible with video games.  That being said though, I really liked playing Braid (once I figured out how to use it thanks to the lovely Shao-Yu Chen for helping me out today).  I said I […] Continue reading
