Path of Exile

There have been many ARPGs ported from PC to consoles over the years and with my love of the Diablo series I have tried most of them in one form or another. Torchlight 1 & 2, Titan Quest, Marvel Heroes, you name it I’ve probably tried it. However one that never really sparked more than…

Sword and Fairy 6

Final Fantasy XIII ended up being one of those love it or hate it games, changing up many aspects of the series that had been fairly recognizable at least up until X-2.
