Grand Theft Auto V PC Review – An IncGamers Exclusive

They said it couldn’t be done. Sure, there are references in the code to a PC version, and GTA was a franchise that started on PC, and every other GTA game has hit PC – but maybe, they feared, Grand Theft Auto V wouldn’t be coming to PC.

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn – Adventurer’s Log 1

I still don’t have a goddamn chocobo.
Part of this is doubtless down to the fact that I’ve had to play several other games to completion, so my Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn time has been limited.
