The First Few Hours: A Game of Dwarves (PC)

I wasn't sure what to expect from A Game of Dwarves when I first picked it up. I had heard comparisons to Dungeon Keeper, but that didn't tell me much about it. There are just too many nuances in games today to compare them...

Why Hamza is not a real shark

Target just redeemed the worst holiday

I don't like Valentine's Day. Many folks are of the same mind, but for different reasons. Some folks perpetuate the So Ronerly stereotype. Maybe they had a plan backfire into a firestorm of a broken relationship like me th...

The stylus is dead.

Our washing machine konked out tonight. This is a problem as 1) there's no money for a new washer and 2) I can't drive to a laundromat as my car broke down earlier this week. This is, as they'd call it, a right dilly of a p...

Oh my god, fuck your points. Fuck them right in the ear.

So here's the progression of events. 1) Sim 3 comes out. I purchase said Sims in a retail environment in exchange for real Human Monies. 2) Best Buy has a 1/2 off sale on point cards for the Sims. Sim-meep is getting alon...

Target's secret clearance endcap

If there's anything that I like, it's a good deal. My constant perusing of CAG and Slickdeals can pretty much confirm this. I'm also a complete sucker for a markdown, even if it's something I'm not immediately interested in...

#100 all up in your business

Bam! Round numbers! And then she cat-oozed over to where the shirt was on my bed and claimed it as her own. Honestly, I forgot I'd even ordered the blamed shirt. Mind like a goldfish nowadays... I'm pretty happy with it, though. Good and sturdy, I like the logo size... It shall be proudly worn to the office on Monday!

I Suck at Games: The Allure of the Fighter

My jRPG Hangover

I'm feeling tired and worn out, which is weird because it's not like I've going outside all that much. I suppose it all started last month, when I decided to play the Dragon Quest IV DS remake. I can't really explain it, bu...

A DSi, I has one.

I'm unboxing! Whee! Not so much a "midnight launch" on GameStop's part, per say. It was more of a "midnight two fratboys, a kid with his mom and me and my roommate standing around awkwardly and not making eye contact with ...
