Checkpoint: Final Week of Summer 2016 Edition

posted in: Editorials & Features | 0

It’s been quite the summer this year. Reviewed a few games from Sega/Atlus. Played several fantastic games like Doom and Overwatch. I got fitter with the help of the Garmin Vivosmart HR.

The 2016 Euros just wrapped up and the Summer Olympics are still going on. And yet Leicester City already lost and Manchester United already won their respective openers.
