Digging Into Dungeons Pt. 1.5: Zaga-33

By means of apology for being late on my first post of this series (as well as probably being tardy on the next- I've got a lot of cool stuff in the works!), I've decided to do an extra little spotlight on a weird but interesting indie sc...


Digging Into Dungeon Crawlers: A Series

Diablo 3 is coming. Really soon. *Runs around screaming and flailing arms madly* ...Okay, so it's still a month away, but it's a heck of a lot closer than ever before- and it's finally coming! I'm a huge fan of the Diablo series, and d...


Speculation: Quentin Tarantino and Half-Life

I literally just wrote down my two favorite things, and I'm absolutely giddy that there may be a correlation between the two. According to one tiny detail on Tarantino's IMDB Bio the quirky director has a deep love for Valve's revered ser...


Don't Run From Canabalt!

Remember when you were a kid driving down the road, picturing a little man running along side the car jumping over obstacles and taking great leaps over intersecting roads? I did it, and I'm sure as heck you did too. Sadly, for years that...


A Pound of Flesh: Making Skins in Minecraft

Hey everyone, this'll just be a quick post, but I just want to talk about something that I discovered today. Recently I picked up the insanely popular Minecraft and have been trying to make the most out of the modding community around it,...


A Humble Reminder of Mojang's Mojam+ UPDATE!

Who are these finely animated characters? Why, they are Mojang of course! (Spoiler: It's written in the image.) These are the chaps responsible for the ridiculously popular and grindtastic blockathon, Minecraft! With the respect of the co...


No love lost for Dear Esther: a defence.

The reception of the recent remake of the 2008 mod Dear Esther has been quite dividing. Destructoid's Allistair Pinsof wrote his review of the game and scored it an understandable 4.5. Over at Rock, Paper, Shotgun two reviews of the game we...


Who Would You Kick?

Double Fine's Adventure Kickstarter fund certainly has caused quite the stir in its wake. Closing in on the $1.8 million mark at the time of writing in just a week has resulted in a lot of discussion among the gaming community, as well as r...


Trial and Error: The Satisfaction of Constant Failure

Difficulty in games can be a tricky subject for developers to properly implement in their works. A game that is too challenging and unfair to players will likely be left in the dust, disc snapped in half. A game that is too easy will be s...


A First Stab at Shank 2

Today was really the first big day for game releases in 2012. EA's new RPG: Kingdoms of Amalur came out alongside 2K and Digital Extreme's The Darkness 2 in the big game releases, we all got the Skyrim creation kit to mod the weapons/armour...


VVVVVV: A Malevolent Masterpiece.

Some people deserve to be punched in the face for all the right reasons. Terry Cavanagh is one of those people. He did not burn down an orphanage, nor did he disseminate hateful messages about a certain race creed or gender. No, his crime a...


What I want in 2012: A new path

A new year, a new way. We've all made our resolutions on how to make this year better and whether we keep them or not depends entirely on how they fit with our lifestyle. Among the choices I've made this year to better myself, I've decide...


Mass Effect 3: My thoughts on co-op

Recently, Bioware announced that a multiplayer mode is in the works for the third game in the critically successful Mass Effect series. Given the state of the industry these days, this was not only unsuprising, but also garnered quite a b...


This little Outerlight of mine.

In 2007 a very old friend of mine turned me onto a game called The Ship. Developed by Outerlight, it combined elements of The Sims, Clue, and Quake. Originally developed as a mod for the popular online FPS Quake, it took a back seat to fra...


About Timtoidone of us since 10:35 PM on 08.07.2007


I'm Tim and I have a deep passion for games. Always have and always will. These days I'm pretty much a PC gamer exclusively and Steam is the black hole in my bank account.

I love FPS and RPG's the most, but I'm also interested in the wide world of indie games, art games, and pretty much anything that is different and weird. Some of my all-time favorite games include Half Life 2, Diablo 2, Team Fortress 2, Tetris, Borderlands, Torchlight and Bioshock.

I'm a 21 year old Canadian guy who loves writing/blogging, gaming, animation, drawing, curling, bacon and coffee-- all drenched in maple syrup.

I hope you enjoy what I write, and I would one day like to end up as a professional in the field of games journalism or working as a creative in the advertising/entertainment industry.

You can also follow me on Twitter @twgrant where I tweet about neat stuff to cool people, like you!

<-- The cool stuff is that way.
