Every month, Facebook seems to have a negative article in the news about something they have done wrong. In the last two years, they really haven’t missed a month with bad news. Yet, in spite of them giving away our information to people they partner with, keeping passwords in unsecured documents, testing emotional manipulation of their users, and constantly changing their layout, and going back on promises of their News Feed, we continue to stay active.
Why can’t we log out and stay logged out? Why can’t we delete our account?

Church can be a busy place, where there’s always something going on. If it isn’t focus on the vacation Bible school, it’s missions trip. You name it.

Avalanche Studios is known for the action-packed Just Cause series along with one of my favorites — Mad Max. While Mad Max lacked critical acclaim on release, it is often found among the “underrated” “must play” title of its generation.
As for id Software, what else can you say? They not only founded the First Person Shooter genre with Wolfenstein and DOOM, but their latest reboot of DOOM in 2016, “is one of the best FPS games I have ever played — maybe even the best I’ve played.”
I am a huge fan of the post-apocalyptic genre. Mad Max: Fury Road is one of my favorite films, and if I look at some of my favorites games, the trend continues.
So what did I think of RAGE 2, a game that it’s developers coined a “post post-apocalyptic” FPS just released on May 14th of this year?
