Dressed up as journalists or as photographers with fancy equipment, they walk around the aisles of convention centers looking for victims. Charisma + 2 is a group of talented, sexy and
Last month I had the great pleasure of attending WonderCon! I only got to go on Saturday due to the fact that I was driving back from GDC on Friday and Sunday was Easter, but nevertheless, great times were had! One surprise highlight was getting to meet fellow C+2 model, Sarah. Here we are pictured as Wonder Woman and Bat Girl: For my costume I used one my

Last to mention (and so not the least!) from Daedalic Entertainment is Goodbye Deponia. The final installment of the acclaimed comedic adventure point-and-click Deponia trilogy. For those unfamiliar with the series, the first game follows Rufus, a quirky low-class young man who longs to escape his village of Kuvaq on a planet made of junk called “Deponia”, and win the heart of his dream girl Goal, an upper-class citizen from
Daedalic Entertainment had so much to share at GDC that C + 2 had to write more posts to discuss two more of their games destined for greatness. What is one of the most popular tourist attractions in San Francisco? Yes, there are many, but one of the most prominent is Alcatraz, a maximum high-security federal prison known for housing some of the most infamous criminals in American history between
