AC Rogue Feature Gaming

Assassin’s Creed Rogue

Lasting First Impressions After more than 80 hours in the world of last year’s Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, all I wanted was more content for the game.  Freedom Cry, the stand alone story of Edward Kenway’s first mate, Adewale, was good but it just didn’t fill that void left when I completed everything there […]
