TestFreaks Data


It’s Saturday, I really did not want to get up at 7am, but my 7 yr old decided that’s what he wanted to do so that means I have to. if I would have known I wouldn’t have stayed up until almost 2am, but then again I didn’t have much of a choice as I just wasn’t tired and couldn’t sleep. Oh well, get some news posted I guess, then a review later for you. For now, read the news and reviews from sites around the world and check back later for a review…
