In today’s society, technology has completely taken-over.  Just look at the latest social-game that’s taken the World by storm, Pokémon Go for example.  “Nerve” attempts to capitalize on our youth’s obsession with social media interaction; a new game that’s gone viral allows players to earn money as they complete dares from anonymous strangers, who represent the second option: watchers.  Vee is Continue reading
