Hail the Mega Drive

The Sega Mega Drive, or Genesis in the US, celebrates it’s 20th anniversary this year. Originally out on the 29th of October 1988 in Japan, I’m writing this to be released on the European launch date, November 30th 1990. The Mega Drive was my first ever console. I did have a Commodore 128 before it […]


whatcha been playin’ – Nov 22

This week I ‘av been mostly playing.. Lich King. That’s not a big surprise, 2.8 million sold in the first 24 hours. But I don’t want to talk about wow, I have a few items I want to get off my chest.


The New Xbox Experience

Ok, so I tried out the New Xbox Experience (NXE) and there are good things and bad things.  But let me start by saying: unless you check your friends’ stats frequently, download it right away.  It’s good.  It’s very good. The one serious thing it’s missing from the original Dashboard is, as Gabe from Penny […]


Good News, Bad News on Fable II

I initially wrote that one of Fable II’s (website) core flaws was that it only allowed one character per profile.  The good news is: that turns out not to be true.  When I finished Achievement-hunting with my first character, I made a new one to go for another end-game Achievement.  The first time I re-loaded […]


<3 LBP

If little ragdolls could be alive in this world, I would have one of these. I would kill for one of these. I wouldn’t be ashamed to be a 26 year old man and admit I play with dolls. No matter what your mood is, there’s just something about Little Big Planet. I mean look […]


How To: Get Unlimited Money In The Sims 2

I’ve played a lot of The Sims 2 (website), EA/Maxis’s follow-up to the best-selling PC game in history (reference, if you don’t believe me).  I own all the expansion packs ($30 x 8 expansions) and all the stuff packs ($20 x 8 packs).  It’s like a drug habit for me. The Sims 2 lets you, […]


GameFly Rentals Are No Netflix

In order to have better (read: cheaper) access to games to write about, I signed up for a GameFly (website)  subscription.  Let me tell you, it’s no Netflix.



** Spoiler warning for the game AND the new Bond movie. ** The new Bond movie, Quantum of Solace, just came out. While this isn’t as much of a review of the movie and I don’t want to really spoil the movie for anyone. But I do have some thoughs… Casino Royale was a really […]


World of Goo

Several years ago there was this thing called the Experimental Gameplay Project. It was a gathering of a few students at Carnegie Mellon and the focus was to quickly prototype different ideas for games, each game had to be made in less than seven days. While there wasn’t really a lot of gameplay in most […]


Fable II Costs an Extra Ten Dollars

While I’m loving Fable II (website), and have plenty more good things two write about it, I found something very unsavory while Achievement-hunting.  All Xbox 360 games comes with a set of Achievements which raise your gamer score and grant you e-peen.  These add up to about 1000 points per game and are split up […]
