“Unannounced” Harry Potter Project

Normally I only write reviews after movies or games have already been released and I have had a chance to see them or play them. I am going to break from tradition for a moment and provide some speculation. Earlier today while writing a review about a video game, I visited James Hannigan’s website to do…
