Played Fishing Superstars, Dragon Quest (making progress) and Freedom Wars today. Felt tired and lethargic. Missed a lot of the rain, though. Played board games with friends, and the one I brought helped them decide on a gift to purchase.

My Impressions of Ridge Racer Unbounded and Armored Core 5

It has been a little while since I last visited the Namco Bandai offices in Hammersmith, London. That time, I got to try out Enslaved before its release. Suitably chuffed with the game and the place where I was able to p...   0

A Temporary Greek Tragedy: Law 3037/2002

The Short History of World Cup Themed Football Games
