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 […]


Sims 3 Delayed Until June

The highly-anticipated sequel The Sims 3 (website) has been delayed.  As recently as yesterday, they were announcing a February 20 release date.  Now it’s June 2.  And a look at their press release reveals the reason: They want more time to market it.  I’m thinking they didn’t get as many pre-orders as they anticipated. It’s […]


Holy Sims: A Nativity Bug

I’m basically done playing The Sims 2 (website) not because I’ve stopped liking it (I could never stop liking it) but because I have a lot to do lately and I’m taking a break from this type of game until the release of The Sims 3 (website).  But just as I was preparing to quit […]


Follow-Up: Money in The Sims 2

A while back I wrote about how to get unlimited money in The Sims 2 (website).  It was an experiment I started because, as a computer programmer, I was curious how the developers of that game handled large amounts of money.  I found two interesting things at the end of the experiment, and I should […]


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, […]



** 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 […]


Second thoughts on Fallout

It’s taken a bit to come back to writing about this game, or anything else for that matter. But the fact is that there’s so little spare time that I’ve had and I have literally spent most of it playing Fallout. The scope of the game is blowing my mind.
