Last month, I reviewed an auto-scrolling runner game for the iPhone called Curio. I wasn't too kind with my judgment, much to the disappointment of the title's main developer Rube Rubenstein. At the end of the day, though, there are no hard feelings between Rube and myself. However, just for a little playful ribbing, Rube decided to honor me with a personalized achievement.

How do you earn the "Anthony Ponce Award"? By dying on the first level. Yep, sounds about right!

This new achievement was added as part of a major update that went live today. The tweaks help to mitigate a bunch problems players had with the original build, so while I still am not in love with the game, a few of my frustrations have been lessened in intensity. I thank Rube for being such a good sport and am greatly honored to join the ranks of game journalists who have been added to videogames by doing pretty much nothing at all!

Oh, and Tommy Wiseau played the game as well. Yeah, that's a thing. It's after the jump.

Review: Sokobond

Chemistry is governed by a definite set of rules. Opposite charges attract, like dissolves like, matter is always conserved. There are more rules than just those, but one of the great things about the study of matter and its ...more

Review: The Walking Dead Season 2: Amid the Ruins

The last episode of The Walking Dead was probably my favorite one yet -- and that's including all of Lee's tale from the first season. Clem has made the switch from tough to full-on badass depending on your choices, and ...more

Review: Dark Souls II: The Crown of the Sunken King

2014 has been very good to me, but Dark Souls II is one of my favorite games of the year. Many debates have raged on as to whether or not it's as exceptional as its predecessor (Demon's Souls is better than bot...more
