A Virtua Review

There are two kinds of sports games I enjoy: Tennis and Golf. Mario is responsible for both of those obsessions, so blame him. In any case, I watched this Giant Bomb quicklook of Virtua Tennis 4, and the main campaign mode seemed so crazy that I had to give it a rent and a try. […]

Also, I Really Don’t Think Water Drops Bounce Like That.

Wandering about on the iPad, I sometimes come across games that are neat and stuff. Recently I noticed that Enigmo HD was a buck. This, in it’s non-HD form, was one of those early iPhone games that everyone said you had to play, but I had never played it. I thought it would be a […]

Game Design Via Random Dream

I rarely remember my dreams, but often, when I wake up slightly, my brain takes some part of a story from a dream and keeps telling it, onward and onward, and I have a hint of what I was dreaming about from that. Apparently last night I was having a pretty interesting dream, because I […]

I Hired Four People Specifically To Carry You, But Now That You Have Legs, I Can’t Spare Anyone.

Oh, right, I saw the new Pirates like last weekend. That was a thing. The first Pirates of the Caribbean is an amazing film. It’s flashy, it’s fun, it’s everything a movie that’s trying to just be flat-out entertaining should be. The rest of the forced “trilogy” were not that great (though a recent re-examining […]

Enjoy This Fine Selection Of Shit That Was Open In My Browser.

It’s bedtime, and… oh shit. There’s no blog post ready for today…? Well, fuck it, linkdump time. I find this comic pretty hilarious. It’s a new favorite. Yay comics! Speaking of comics, there’s a reason why Curvy is such a NSFW delight, and it’s pages like this one. Look at that guy dance. I mean, […]

Did I Mention It Is Like Lemmings?

As far as iOS games you should play go, you should probably play Spirits. Basically, think of Lemmings. This game is that. I even just searched for “Lemmings” on the app store, and Spirits was the first search result. You control a bunch of little forest spirits. They’re cute and well-animated. They’re trying to get […]

Choo Choo! Chugga chugga chugga chugga CHOO CHOO!

4th And Battery put out a new little free app. It’s called Candy Train: The Train of Candy. (Okay, it doesn’t have the subtitle, but it should.) Since I found Unpleasant Horse a rather fun little distraction, and it had the low entry cost of free, well, I decided I’d give it a go. I’m […]

Stupidly Bad Moods, and The Magical Timing to Fix Them

It was a Sunday in which I got little done. I mean, I had fun at a draft with everyone, even though there was a lot of confusion about the timing of it, but after that, it all went downhill. I had to work, but it was a short shift, so I didn’t get paid […]

Puzzles Scattered Throughout The World

While working a floor shift at the Kohl’s, I stumbled upon a MYSTERY. I was fixing all the bedding sets thrown around, when I saw a Big One bedding set with a playing card stuck to it. Upon closer inspection, it was actually inside the packaging. I opened the package and pulled out the Seven […]

Father, I Will Avenge You.

It seems difficult to top this review of Infinity Blade. In fact, I’d recommend you read it first. While not very “pro” on the game, it encapsulates the experience very nicely. So do check that out. Still, I’m going to give some of my own thoughts on it. I think Infinity Blade is quite a […]
