THE RANK: Appetite for Destruction by Guns N’ Roses

I honestly cannot remember a time in my life in which Guns N’ Roses wasn’t a thing. I’m not saying I remember their explosion onto the rock scene, cause I was, I don’t know, five? But, I remember clearly the release of their double LP, Use Your Illusion, mostly because one of the songs was in Terminator 2 and by the time they dropped “The Spaghetti Incident?,”  came out I was at least dipping my toes into their waters. Their heroin fueled cocaine nightmare waters.

Plus/Minus: Serial Cleaner

By Darreck Kirby
Project Shanks Creative Director

In case you missed our inaugural edition of Plus/Minus, the series focuses on game reviews for the titles we play on our Project Shanks Gaming YouTube channel. Said reviews are only written once either Jacob Taylor or myself have completed a game on the channel. The intention is not to issue a grade or a score, but merely to distinguish some of the highlights and lowlights of the game. Ideally, these will only be written in the event that we complete a game’s story so that we can ensure we are being as fair as possible to the title. The goal is to make it so that you, the reader, can decide based on the information provided whether or not it’s a title you’d be interested in picking up. As always, SPOILER WARNING!

Without further ado, let’s begin plus/minus!
