MindJack…..more like SuckJack!

MindJack was a very interesting experience.  The concept of the game made it sound like it was going to be amazing, but the delivery is something akin to relieving an itch with a circular saw.  Sure the itch is gone, but so is your arm.
The good things about the game, of which there are few, are completely covered up by …

RetroPop: Grim_Noir Revisits George Alec Effinger and The Audran Sequence, 30 Years Later…
