To the best of my memory : Many years ago, a child bit his grandfather to death. Yes, bitten to death. Simply because that child did not have proper parental guidance when playing Resident Evil. Child thought he was a zombie. and bit his grandfather to death. A group of friends beat a man to…

Cosplay Photo Editors

WHICH IS THE FAIREST COSPLAY PHOTO EDITOR OF THEM ALL There are a ton of image editing applications out there today, and all of them seem promising. But which one caters the most to cosplay photos in particular? Which is the easiest to use of them all, and which is the most capable of them all?

The gaming industry has grown so much over the years, and has now finally gotten so big to be hitting the big screen. Hell yeah! I don’t think most of the older…
