Jaded, ancient, decrepit video game veteran of many console wars. Born and raised Nintendo fanboy converted to the dark side (aka Sony) over a decade ago, now I just play anything that is fun, system be damned! Mostly on my totally not a gaming laptop these days, but I also two Wiis: one softmodded for emulators, one completely stock to play the latest releases. I don't "need" 2, but why not I say. Why. Not.

Most recent gaming obsessions:
Tropico 3
Excitebike (for the Wii, it has awesome multiplayer)
Civ 5
Dwarf Fortress
Devil's Crush
Portal 2
FF4: The After Years

Favorite games:
Too many to list...
...but if I have to name just 1, I'll choose Fallout. The original.

Desktop Dungeons E3 only demo

First time blog - I just had to give a shout out to a temporary (next 3 days only) demo of the release version of one of my favorite games, Desktop Dungeons. I don't like roguelike games, but this one transcends the genre with super fast gameplay and simple yet deep mechanics. And goat slaughtering - kill them all!

If you've never played before there are tutorials built in to the demo. Basically: click on anything that is not you until you kill EVERYTHING or get killed yourself!

Enjoy it while you can, because after the 3 days are up this E3 only demo will be gone and the only demo will be of the older version! Of course I've got about 100 hours into the old alpha demo, but this is a preview of the retail version coming out this summer.
