I was born in Durban and now reside in Cape Town. I study at the University of Cape Town and plan to do a post graduate LLB in the next two years.

The great thing about these apps is that whether you are waiting for your laundry to...

    XCOM: Enemy Unknown is sometimes pitched as a remake of the old school classic UFO: Enemy Unknown. I hoped it would be something like the original, but to my surprise it was something more. I woke up earlier than usual on 12 October to deal with my admin because I knew that my weekend would be entirely devoted to two things: Dishonored and the latest XCOM. As wonderful as my Dishonored experience was, looking back now I wish I had installed and played them both before committing myself to one before the other. XCOM Enemy Unknown was developed by Firaxis Games...
