31. December 2014 | By vannade | No Comments | Filed in: English, Rambling.

Since the number of books I’ve read in 2014 is so low, I figure I should list the video games I’ve played, just so I can have a higher number to show! This is my blog, so I’m allowed. Gone Home I bought this in October 2013, but my notes say I played it in • Read More »
