I can't defend what Tim Schafer said, but...

In the past I have opined that there's not really any such thing as 'playing it wrong.' If a lot of people don't like a game and people say they're just not playing it properly, that is almost always because the game did no...   read

Tales of Monkey Island Chapter 1: Impressions

Now that the first chapter of Tales of Monkey Island is out, it's difficult to to write about. As you may have gleaned, the series is kind of a big deal to me and so to collect my millions of feelings I have about Launch of...   read

Tales of Monkey Island: Why It Isn't 2D

Sorry. I've talked about Tales of Monkey Island plenty and there's more to come. I admit, I love this series of games and I want to see people playing it, so I'm doing everything I can to keep people informed about it in my...   read

Gaming at 27

I thought I'd put together a disjointed and scatterbrained c-blog post as I surely must be entitled to do at least once a year, on my birthday (which is at least once a year). Happy birthday to me. So, 27 is here. I'm not...   read

Rocket Riot XBLA Quick Impressions

Yes. It's this game again. But I'm glad it's getting a lot of word-of-mouth buzz and feel the need to contribute to that, because, well... When I first saw Rocket Riot on XBLA I was greeted with the above image. I didn't g...   read

Bit.Trip Beat, Difficulty and Me.

Oh, how some people endlessly and boringly lament the decline of difficult games. There are plenty to be found, though, for those who would like to look. Mega Man 9, for example, is there for those looking for a more retro-...   read

Regarding E3: Welcome Back, Lucasarts

A short while ago, on Pondercast, I described LucasArts as "A hulking zombie of a company which I wish someone would just shoot in the head so it could die." Those who didn't grow up with LucasArts games - perhaps console g...   read

My The Beatles: Rock Band

I'm sure that many a Beatles fan has an idea of some of the songs that they want to feature in the 45-song strong Beatles: Rock Band. Here I present my personal list. This isn't necessarily the list I think the game ought t...   read

Stop Trying To Control My Life!

It's been a little while since I've had a rant... so let's rant. I've finally gotten around to playing Persona 4 and I'm enjoying it thoroughly. As of now it has taken over my life. It isn't without its difficult and frustr...   read

Rental Roundup: Two Months On

One or two people expressed an interest in me carrying this on from last time as they wanted to see how Boomerang was shaping up for me as a rental service, so here it is - my second month of rentals. Boomerang was certainly...   read

Childish Things: Retro Rediscovered

There's a passage in the Bible from Corinthians that people quote now and again that goes: "When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish ...   read

Expanded Universes: Games That Expand Themselves
