[Game Review] One Piece: Unlimited World Red (Vita)

In PS3, Reviews, Vita, Wii-U by Davis FanLeave a Comment

As I’ve gotten older, I found myself straying farther and farther from anime. Though I still love me some Gundam, I haven’t even touched the newer popular series like Attack on Titans and Kill la Kill until I was bored enough to take the plunge on Netflix. Oddly enough, I just never got into One Piece. At one point I’m …
