‘Five Dates’ iOS Review: Stress-Free Dating

Five Dates By: Wales Interactive / Good Gate Media I'm a big fan of Wales Interactive's work, as they publish a lot of full-motion video (FMV) games and even port some of them to iOS. Still, I somehow missed the news about their dating simulator, Five Dates, until it was announced for iOS a few months after its PC release. I personally despise dating, but the idea of a game that tries…

Luckily, The Shapeshifting…
