Deathsmiles (iOS) Review

It's been over a year since Cave first hit the app store with their port of Espgaluda II and it still blows my mind that A. I can play Cave games on my iPhone and B. they actually work. As the premier developer of old-school "bullet hell...


Mushihimesama Bug Panic Review

I was kinda hoping Destructoid would review this game since I have been indoctrinated in the Cult of Cave and like to see the word get out on their games as much as possible. No review thus far (hey, can't cover 'em all) so I figured I'd...


Ten Dollar Tally: June 2010 Edition

Ten Dollar Tally is a monthly series where I recap how much gaming I managed to buy on a $10 budget and whether or not I feel I got my money's worth. The rules are simple: buy $10 worth of games every month, the games must cost SOMETHING s...


The Great Escape: Pursuing the Dream

Digital vs. Disc: What I Want and What I Can't Have

So long story short, my copy of Beatles:Rock Band is now little more than a coaster due to a scratch my 360 put on the disc. OK fine, it's annoying but I will probably be able to have it replaced for little or no cost, not that big a deal ...


About jel xone of us since 7:37 PM on 09.10.2009

I like video games (obviously) and I like to write (and use parentheses, obviously), so I thought I might try out writing a blog.

I've been gaming since the mid 80s or so, My favorite games are RPGs, preferably "tactical", one-on-one fighting and tetris, which should be a genre unto itself. I'm also currently enamored with 'shmups as I have apparently developed a taste for pain.

Currently Playing:

Oh hey, I also like to write about anime and other Japanese stuff:
