World’s Best Saluting Simulator

Double Fine is the Double BEST! Or something. I dunno, I love Tim Schafer and his crew, and I love to give them money! I say this, having never actually gotten around to buying and playing Stacking. Oops! But I did get Trenched, because after I watched this badass quicklook, who could say no? Of […]

Sonic, Get Out Of The Car. You Can Run Faster Than It.

Apparently I didn’t write a blog about it, as my search for one is coming up short, but let me just make it clear that I really, really enjoyed Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing for the 360. It was, by far, the best Mario Kart clone I’ve ever played. It’s better than, say, Mario Kart […]

How Many Pongs Can You Handle?

Multipong! The name kind of says it all. Seriously, though, Multipong is kind of cool. It’s Pong Meets Warlords. You basically play Pong in a square, with four players. Using the power of MULTITOUCH, you can actually set your iPad down and have four people move their own individual paddles and play. This, and it […]

Lizard Actor Man Acts.

Rango is a really strange film. It’s one of them that I watched with Brer, and while it was certainly entertaining, I really had to question a lot of the general world concept. I mean, okay, this is a world with humans, who live like humans do, but it’s also a world where animals can […]

Life Changes. Then I Blog About It.

I’m not sure how to organize all this stuff that’s been in my head into a coherent essay, but I’m just going to go for it anyway. Sorry if it doesn’t make much sense or seems really scattershot. When I went to visit Brer, I basically conquered my last thing that I was worrying about […]

Roy Earle is a Classy Gentleman.

Today is a day of story spoilers for L.A. Noire, including, potentially, all DLC, because I’ve played it all. If you have any inclination to play the game and haven’t yet, do it, and don’t read this, please. Mechanical discussion was yesterday: feel free to peruse that if you want to know what the game […]

You Got All Cluuuuuuuues!

There’s been a trip in the way, and work, and well, I was waiting for all the DLC to come out and such, but I think it’s about time I talk about L.A. Noire. I’ll be doing it in two parts: tomorrow is spoiler day, so if you care about the story, I’ll be talking […]

I Saw Brer.

He is a real dude, with real body parts who lives in a real house and everything. It’s true. When I went, I was kind of assuming that it would be magical. My point of reference was the first time I visited my ex-girlfriend. It was exciting. We had only knew each other a few […]

Starcraft Ripoff Tower Defense

Epic War TD is a pretty pretty and solid tower defense title. It’s also a blatant ripoff of Starcraft. I mean, seriously, you take a look at the units running past you, and they are pretty well exactly Starcraft units with little changes. Oh, look, here’s some Zerglings, only they’re slightly glow-y. Here are some […]

Knee Deep In This Puzzle Shit: Michael J. Fox Because Michael J. Fox

I have finished the Back to the Future saga! So that’s a thing. Let’s take the ending separate from the basic plot. As I mentioned in the post about Double Visions, I really liked where the plot went. The inherent selfishness of what Marty and Doc do with the time machine was addressed in a […]
