The Sims 3, Part 2: Good News, Bad News

Since my earlier post about The Sims 3, in which I was impressed at how long it was taking me to find bugs, I have found a few.  Most of them are pretty minor and slightly inconvenient.  But now I’ve hit an actual show-stopper.  More on that later. Sims 3 is also continuing to impress […]


WoW Spotlight: Halls of Lightning

I’ll write about The Sims 3 every day if I don’t write about something else, so let me take today to give the stage to the worst non-raid dungeon in World of Warcraft’s second expansion.  I’m speaking, of course, of Halls of Lightning. Halls of Lightning has the titan-themed look of dungeons like Uldaman.  It’s […]


The Sims 3: First Impressions

Paul Zero Yes, it’s been a while since I’ve written anything.  Yes, World of Warcraft is a big contributor.  But I have my DPS to almost 3k, my achievements over 3300, and something like 12 different titles. But this is a post about newest entry in a very lucrative franchise, The Sims 3.  I got […]


World of “Hey, how is it already Monday?”craft

Okay, so, I haven’t posted in more than a week.  That’s basically because all the time I would normally use to write (or clean, or cook, or breathe) has been consumed by World of Warcraft.  I mentioned before that I bought the expansion as a treat when I got my video card and logic board […]


Wrath of the Lich King: 70-75

Well, this is awkward.  I had that great post about how fun it is to just play World of Warcraft one night a week and escape the addiction.  But like any good junkie, I’ve got my USB keyboard plugged straight into my profunda brachii and I’m sure I can quit any time I want to. […]


Eyezmaze Amazes

It’s been more than four years since I first saw Eyezmaze‘s Grow and the flash games on that site have only gotten better.  Some of them, like Grow, are sequential puzzles, where you must see which items affect other items in order to figure out the order to place them in.  Others are reaction games, acheter […]


My Addiction to TapDefense

It’s time to talk about my addiction to TapDefense, the free iPhone tower defense game.  It’s quick, it’s fun, it’s simple.  And unlike many, many iPhone games, it’s stable. I first heard about TapDefense when my brother-in-law, Jeff, mentioned it.  I downloaded it (free, right?) and I don’t think I’ve been able to stop playing since. […]


Put the Force Back on its Leash

Finished Star Wars: the Force Unleashed on Friday.  I guess I thought it was going somewhere bigger than this.  Let me start with the non-spoiler comments, and then I’ll get into the details behind spoiler tags. I need to return for a second to the complaint I had about cutscenes last time.  Worse than just […]


Loading Unleashed

Post 2 on Star Wars: the Force Unleashed.  I want to emphasize my earlier post in saying that this game is much better than its demo.  In general, I’m going to continue to praise it, but with three notable gripes: 1. Loading screens are too often.  They’re not too long, at least the first twenty […]


The Force Unleashed, Better Than Expected

When I played the Star Wars: The Force Unleashed demo, back when it was released for free, I was completely unimpressed.  Now that I’ve rented the full game and played through the first couple of missions, I think the problem is that they wrote a bad demo.  See, games like this need time to get […]
