1. Gradius Marathon Practice update #3

    10-02-2017 at 02:57 AM
    I totally got sidetracked by a new game that came out called Fortnite Battle Royale. It's so addicting, very tense and a lot of fun to play. It's a 1 vs 100 3rd person shooter like H1Z1: King of the Kill and Playerunknowns Battlegrounds.
