Obligatory Halloween Post, Smarties Edition

Every October, I tend to try to think of some things I could dress up as, and every October, I end up not dressing up as anything at all because I got too busy or was too lazy to attempt to figure costuming out. Oh well. Halloween has always been an exciting time, mostly because […]

Hip and Horrible, Good and Bad, Panty and Stocking

I find that, when I describe many things I like to Cara and Cole, who have known me for less time and just “get” my sense of taste less, I describe them as being “wonderfully terrible.” This can mean a variety of things, of course. The “wonderfully terrible” of Deadly Premonition, for example, is completely […]

Return to Dead-Leaving

Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2 for the 360 is fantastic, but man, Microsoft is screwing people over by forcing Valve to charge for all that DLC. I say this because I’ve recently played through The Passing and The Sacrifice with my brother and Brer, and while they are really fun little campaigns, […]

Tiny Blog on a Tiny Computer about a Tiny Computer

I am sitting in a Borders, writing this on my tiny little netbook. It’s been awhile, netbook! I forgot how terrible your keyboard is. It’s pretty bad. But oh well, you’re my little computer. Mokona-chan, I have named you. (All my computers are named after xXxholic characters. Shut up.) Awhile back, I decided my tiny […]

I’m Really Serious About Halloween

Costume Quest is fantastic. I guess I should be more specific about that, though. Costume Quest is a great idea with mostly solid execution. It’s entertaining and endearing. It’s cute as fuck. It’s simple. It’s fun. I completely got 15 bucks worth of entertainment out of it. If you have any nostalgia for Halloween, it’s […]

If There’s One Thing I Can’t Stand, It’s Being Lost

Apparently nothing can piss me off more in video games than poorly constructed mazes with no useful minimap. I mean, first, I was doing the LotRO Harvestmath thing with Essner and Brer. There’s this haunted house, with a bunch of quests in it you do to get little coins you can trade for silly shit. […]

I Opened Up My Gamma World Box

Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m still COMPLETELY EXCITED to play Gamma World this Friday with people. I mean, totally excited. But man, the main rulebook leaves something to be desired. I swear there is a chapter missing in this thing. The book makes references to things like “worldlines” and all kinds of crazy stuff, […]

I Especially Enjoy Many Of The Ridiculous Screams

I now dub this “iPhone Game Review” weekend, as I realize there are a lot of cool games I haven’t written about. Like, say, Super Mega Worm. Twitters was all going on about this game, so I had to pick it up. I must say, I’m glad I did. I’m not usually one for Arcade […]

That Polyhedron Has Moxie, I Tells Ya

Back when iPhone games were a young market, one indie title stood out: Edge. Everyone was talking about it. I really kind of paid it no mind. Then a certain jackass started suing because he’s a jackass, and it got taken down. Then put back up. Then taken down again. About the second time it […]

I Linkdump So Much, I Just Added A Bloeg Category For It

I kind of want to write something else, but damn, I have like 20 tabs open in two different browsers, so that means it’s time for… RETURN OF THE SON OF LINKDUMPING! My good friends (note: I don’t actually know them) at Rocketcat Games are preparing to release their next little game, and they made […]
