It's #sadsongsunday. Yay! This one is a staple of mine for when I want to feed the malaise. What better way to start an album than to make yourself feel like you're in a trance of indecisiveness, just being swept along.


I'm alive. It's #SadSongSunday. Jim Guthrie is probably one of the more optimistic artists I listen to, but in his early days, he experimented with a lot of sounds and moods. I think this one is heightened by the fact that you can hear his chair squeak.


It's been a rough week for me, but happy #SadSongSunday! I can't profess to be a fan of Wilco, but Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is my go to album of despair. As for the song, I probably like it because I'm pretty sure I misunderstand the meaning of the lyrics.


Right on time, it's a review for Rogue Trip: Vacation 2012. I kept saying "Vacation 2020" in the review, which seems appropriate, but I had to find/replace to make sure I didn't miss any.


Review: Hotshot Racing

The racing game scene was once a far more colorful place. At any time you could be driving a Volkswagen Beetle through Jurassic Park or going up impossible climbs in your futuristic turbo bike. The early 3D era was, after all, a time of exp...


Happy #SadSongSunday. Gosh, I love this album. The whole thing, but particularly the last two songs, which I had to give another listen to in order to decide which was sadder. Maybe I'll use the other for another Sunday.


Sorry this assignment is late, boss. It's a review of No More Heroes. It won't happen again. I'll have the next one on your desk by Monday, I promise.


Bought a book of fairy art. Please don’t make fun of me.


I know I said I was going to play old favourites, but then I somehow ended up on Twisted Metal 4, which I have a review for. Don't worry, I don't own Small Brawl. Yet...


Hello from rural Ontario. I should have a Game Complaint Department review up sometime tonight; whenever I have some peace with my laptop.


Review: Death and Taxes

It seems the most important shared experience of our lives is the one we know nothing about. None of us know, definitively, what happens after death. Certainly, many of us have our beliefs -- an afterlife, reincarnation, total oblivion, our...


Depending on how you interpret my choice for #sadsongsunday, it could actually be an uplifting song about letting go of your problems. That, or it could be about all your problems being so bad that the only solution is to burn it all down and start over.


In today's Dating Adzuken, I score royally in Amber's Magic Shop. This is going to be my last Dating Adzuken article for a while, details in comments.


In today's review, I get the chance to complain about a movie while praising a game based on it. It's Star Wars Racer. My comfort food.


It's #SadSongSunday. This is probably one of my favourite songs of all time. I don't really relate to the lyrics. It's about crystal meth addiction in the gay community, and I've never even touched a drug in my life. I just really dig the imagery.


Review: Paradise Killer

What the heck was Killer7 even about? Japan being on the brink of war with the United States? Political parties being infiltrated by terrorists? Brutal assassinations being carried out against key political figures? It sounds like a Tom Cla...

Review: Fight Crab

I like crabs. Do you like crabs? I keep a small group of hermit crabs as pets, one has been with me for over a decade now. So, my first question when going into Fight Crab was, “can I play as a hermit crab?” The answer is no, sa...


Today's Dating Adzuken is hilariously less spicy than the game's name suggests. I try to find romance in Seduce Me, and, well, the game was free, so what am I complaining about?


Although getting bullied by the Suda51 defence force has left a bad taste in my mouth, I’m not going to let that stop me from jumping into an old favourite.


I upset a subset of Suda51 fans on Twitter with my review of Paradise Killer. It’s fascinating to me that you can run afoul of little pockets of misery on the internet by liking the same thing they do but maybe not licking its feet as much?


It's been over a year since I last did an Army Men review. Maybe I should get back into it. Starting with Sarge's Heroes 2 for PS1.


It's still technically #sadsongsunday for another 5 minutes here. I'm not too proud to say I don't know what the lyrics mean in this song, but it's probably about a breakup. It's always about a breakup.


Here's a fact: every time I write a new dating article, I consider it the "best one." With that in mind, here's Pub Encounter, the best Dating Adzuken, yet.


A toy that encouraged you to destroy your parents' floor trim. All of these guys are in my parents' basement now in varying states of destroyed. I still remember the day we got them. I would have been, like, 3 or 4 at the time. #childhoodtoytoid
