Don’t Worry, I Have A Permit For All This Linkdumping

It’s right here, officer. Val linked me to this little flash game. It’s fairly clever and a fun way to waste a few minutes. It’s not long. It’s also got AT LEAST TWO SECRETS! Or so I hear. I didn’t find them. You could also, I dunno, play this incredible take on the game that […]

So Many Well-Placed Hints

Today is spoiler time. Don’t spoil yourself on Ghost Trick. It’s fantastic. Go play it if you haven’t. Ghost Trick does a fantastic job of being both silly and serious at the same time. Now, Phoenix Wright does this, to an extent. Characters are ridiculous, but the situations they are in tend to be dire. […]

Wait, now I get it! You have two buttons! Ghost and Trick! Ha!

I’ve waited for the right day but, let’s face it, it’s not coming. Only one thing to do. Write about Ghost Trick. Ghost Trick is, easily, the most fantastic game I’ve played this year, and I’ve played New Vegas this year. It is the best Adventure-style game I’ve played since I picked up the original […]

Albion Heroes Are Lesbians. It’s The Law.

My Xbox returned! Happy day! That meant I finally got to polish off Fable 3! It was Giant Bomb’s Disappointment of the Year, and while I don’t think it’s a complete failure as a game, it is a pretty big disappointment. I mean, Fable 2 blew me away (IGN.com) when I played it. It was […]

My Gunshoots Man Was A Valor Employee

Here’s my one sentence review of MAG: MAG is just like Battlefield: Bad Company 2’s multiplayer only a bit slower and you can’t team up with your friends if you don’t pick the same faction. But yeah, I don’t know. There’s nothing wrong with MAG. Like, seriously, the big problem I have with it is […]

I Buy Things

I think it’s silly that one of my auto-responses to being depressed and stressed is to buy things, especially when a factor of said stress is potentially monetary. I could make more smart decisions, like relying more on Gamefly or finishing games I really wanted to finish but never did, like P3P. Instead, I buy […]

Besides having a fantastic soundtrack and amazing presentation, Kirby’s Epic Yarn is also a video game that you can play. However, so much of the appeal of the game comes from the presentation that is can’t be overlooked. I mean, the game is gorgeous. It looks fantastic. The entire world really subscribes to the “yarn” […]

Tabs Clear, Links Successfully Dumped, Move To Next Objective

I swear, at some point, I will feel 100% here and then I will write you so much about Ghost Trick. SO MUCH. For now, though, I guess I’ll just dump out all these stupid links I’ve been holding on to because, you know, surely I held onto them for something. Sharkey wrote another Worst […]

Only Fools Play With The River, Apparently.

I bought the Carcassonne iPhone app right when it came out. I love the game, and it supposedly had asynchronous multiplayer, something that way, way more iOS games should have. Unfortunately, when I booted it up, I learned that to play online with your friends, you have to use the e-mail account set up on […]

I Am The Quizmaker

Teaching an online class has forced me to have to make quizzes. I’m not one that thinks that a quiz is the best way to judge how much somebody knows. However, I am a person who understands how incredibly stressful and not viable always doing things the right way is. There are plenty of more […]
