New Silent Hill V details

I've been being a surly gal the past couple days, pouting stiffly at all the preview hysteria and the barrage of announcements out of E3. That's mostly because I'm jealous I'm stuck here in New York with no air conditioning,...

Dance Beatdown? Draglade announced!

Ever been to one of those parties -- think back to some kid's Bar Mitzvah, or maybe it's someone's awkward, overheated wedding, and sometimes someone's dancing just looks a little bit dangerous? There's a sweaty 13-year-...

Plant Tycoon: Cut-throat botanical entrepreneurship?

You might have checked out developer Last Day of Work's previous downloadables, Fish Tycoon and Virtual Villagers (for all you hoity-toity Mac folk). Or, you may have played some other dev's game with "tycoon" in the title...

Building a better RPG: Character deaths

Anyone for mystery? Sherlock Holmes vs. Arsne Lupin

I'm still nostalgic for point-and-click PC adventure games. You know, ridiculously obscure puzzles that require you to combine things in an ungodly marriage, wringing your extremities in rage as you scream, "HOW THE EFF WAS I SUPPO...

Building a better RPG: Part I

Accidental Brilliance in Grand Theft Auto

You're looking at a screenshot of my very own neighborhood in Spanish Harlem, New York City. This is "La Calle 116," and it's hoppin' in the summer. This time of year, the streets become so crowded that a fifteen-minut...

"Special Lessons" with Mitsurugi

I confess, fighting games aren't really my specialty. I'm only passably good at them -- that's to say, better than many people, but I eat dirt against practiced gamers. I do play a lot of Soul Calibur, though. My hands get autom...
