Let’s start off by saying that I am a cheap skate when it comes to buying games for my consoles. I’ve got some pretty good will power not buy a game when it first gets release. The primary reasons behind this is a) I don’t have time to always play games b) some games are play once through and $50-$60 for a game you’re going to play once is a waste.
So I love getting a bargain when it comes to buying my games. And when GameStop has one of their buy 2 get 1 free sales, I’m like a kid on Christmas day. I’ll hold on to a GameStop giftcard for months until one of those sales come up. But every single time I buy pre-owned games from GameStop I get irritated and here’s why.

Question by Franklyn: My McAfee anti virus has disabled suddenly and i fear it might be a computer virus?
I’ve recently received a “windows security alert” (red shield with an X icon) saying my anti virus has been disabled. I fear that it is a computer virus and that if i take action (clicking on the anti virus) I might cause more harm to my computer. Do any of you know what I’m talking about.
PC Pros 2 Go answer:
We’ve never been a fan of McAfee and for good reason. But the first thing you might want to do is attempt to scan your computer with another software. For this purpose we’d recommend the free version of Super Antispyware or Malwarebytes. Once the scan is finished and you remove what ever the scan finds, then uninstall McAfee. Download and run the McAfee Removal Tool. And finally install your choice of anti virus program. After you install a new virus scanner be sure to update the definitions and run a full scan of your system.

Just got finished playing Medal of Honor: Warfighter on my computer. So it’s time to whip up a game review for the latest Medal of Honor game in the series.
The first Medal of Honor game was release back in 1999, with new games in the series being release almost every there after until 2007. Most of them were cool to play, a few were short and given the quality of graphics during that time, were pretty descent.
