Fly Over: ‘The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt’ and ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’

Posted June 12, 2015 by James Hensley and Luther Mitchell Jr.

At the Luke Library: ‘The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt’ I was bored with a number of games I had and wanted to try a new one. I kept hearing about “The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt” and how it put other role-playing games to shame. I can say at the very least, it’s a fun game…

Fly Over: ‘Soylent Green’ and ‘The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up’

Posted June 5, 2015 by Nestor Cruz and Grace Lee

Posted May 15, 2015 by Maj. BENJAMIN GANTT
