Announcements:

Last week I was at the August CGP (Canadian Game Pro) series hosted by the Dork army. This month was a lively event that was Dominated by Tru, who won the Free for all event and with his partner Tosix, forming team ART ( All Real Talent) took the top prize in the 2 on 2 tournament.

Mini Reviews:

Valkyrie Profile:Lenneth – Remake of PS1 title. Awsome RPG. This RPG has a time limit till the end of the world. But many do. You play as a Valkyrie or Battle Maiden recruting soldiers for an eternal war of the gods. You take the recently departed into your party level them up and send them to fight in the great war. Sounds simple but the game is extremely deep.
