Blueberry Garden: The girl and the game

I haven’t had these feelings since I knew a girl named Lacey in the 7th grade. You’re this bird-looking thing with clothes on. Except you don’t have wings…but you can still fly. You can eat blueberries and turn blue…but wh...

Magic the Gathering: Building Your Deck

All right, so it’s been awhile. Blame Japanese RPGs, medieval women, Aztec sacrifice, and late Geometric authors. Seriously. Before I get into the real point of this post I first want to point out where I’m at in Magic:...

Madden '09 may not be that awesome

I just picked up the game an hour or so ago and after pouring through the rosters for a bit, I decided to start up a new franchise. Unfortunately, it's the third quarter of my first game and I've already thrown EIGHT interceptions. Remember in my impressions piece when I mentioned that the DBs still look like they're in leather-seeking mode? Totally. Eight interceptions. Christ.
