Trite stories, tired mechanics, and just generally no long term desirability to play, can all lead to the feeling that you got mugged by a game developer in a dark game store back room. Then along comes a game where you do a double take and rub your eyes. No way, the graphics on this game couldn’t be THIS bad, could they? I mean, these take me back to Asheron’s Call, or Everquest. Maybe as late as DAoC if I really squint my eyes. It’s impossible this game is worth the 40 dollar Steam price tag. Isn’t it? If the game you’re talking about is Project: Gorgon, then no, … [Read more...] about Project Gorgon: Early Access Preview

To run a successful project, having a project management tool is an important part. Specially when you have a team to work upon a project, it’s important to have a project management tool which can help your team to sync.

But, quality always comes with a price tag. Is int it?

Though, I use this project management tool to manage my WordPress services projects and it offers many features like creating projects, creating tasks, assigning tasks, creating invoice, assigning time and many more. I would save some for review post in upcoming days.In this tutorial, I will be helping you on how to … [Read more...] about How to Install ActiveCollab Project Management Tool on Server
