Semi-Indie: Plants Vs. Zombies Online

You still haven’t played it, have you? It’s okay. I understand. I only provided some miserable half of a review last time we discussed it, after all, and that’s hardly sufficient to form an opinion. Sure, the aggregate review scores on Metacritic list it with a sterling 88, but you can’t rush into these things, […]

All About the Benjamins

You’re heard this before: small company sues big company for patent infringement. It’s not a particularly interesting story at this point, considering it happens at least once a month, but that’s the beauty of corporate greed – just when we’ve kicked back and chalked it all up to the status quo, a genuinely interesting case […]

Top Five Wednesday: The Beatles’ Best Songs

That’s right. Every Wednesday you’re going to get a top five list from me. These are all subject to debate; most of the reasons these lists are created is so that people can argue about them. Without further adieu, a top five. Top Five Beatles Songs With the re-issues out and Rock Band: Beatles currently […]

Indie: Canabalt

You know what? I get it. You’re busy. Life gets in the way, right? Schoolwork steps in, your job starts cracking down, and all of those precious free seconds vanish in an instant. This is part of that whole adult thing, I’ve been told (hint: it sucks). So I don’t blame you for not downloading […]

A Glorious Return!

And a new (school) year, people. Isn’t that exciting? It’s also my last, a sobering realization which completely robs the joy out of that opening. But steady that quivering lip, ladies and gents, and take heart — I’ ve still two semesters to delight, entertain, and (on rare, vaguely mediocre occasions) inform you on all […]

Scribblenauts

How can I open up for what could be the most creative game of all time? How can I take those pretty, pretty words I hold so dear and make them dance for a game that does it even better? It’s hard to admit, ladies and gents, but I’ve been bested. Ego defeated, pride shattered, […]

Exciting E3

Left 4 Dead 2? Super Mario Galaxy 2? Halo: Reach? Drop any bombshells like that a few weeks ago and you’d be subjected to the sound of silence. And laughter. Lots of laughter, lots of scoffs, and probably a few insults for good measure — until now. That’s the magic of the Electronic Entertainment Expo, […]

Family Video: Cheap is Good

I did something strange yesterday: I rented a game. Think about it. When was the last time you drove down to the local video store? Maybe it’s just me, but it’s been absolute ages since I stepped into Hollywood Video. ¬†As one of those nerdy kids, Blockbuster trips became a comfortable routine, a weekly opportunity […]

Semi-Review: Plants Vs. Zombies (PC, Mac)

Ever heard of Bejeweled? It’s not much of a stretch to call it one of the most popular games of all (internet) time, if the 25 million copies sold since 2001 are any indication. Think about that for a moment. Twenty-five million. It’s a staggering number, one that attests to the growing popularity of ‘casual’ […]

Odds and Ends: GOG

These last few weeks of class always drag on and on, don’t they? Final projects, final papers, final this and that and blah blah blah. But fret not, dear friends, for there’s a light at the end of the tunnel, and it’s all warm and pleasant and awesome. How are you going to spend your […]
