  • Disturbed in Limbo?

    No, I'm not talking about watching Roseann Barr (or does she still just go by "Roseann?") doing the Limbo.

  • I finally bought Alan Wake

    Intended as a companion piece to my "Why I didn't buy Alan Wake" post (recently featured on this week's (last week's?) Blog Herding (thanks, Annette!)), here's where I admit that I finally broke down and bought this game.

  • The Culture of the Newb

    It's a seemingly never-ending war, where both sides are so entrenched that diplomacy is useless.  Neither side will yield an inch.  The carnage on the battlefield is almost unbelievable, even if you are a participant in this war.

  • A lament for Xbox Live's "1 vs 100"

    5

    As Game Informer (and many other outlets) recently reported, it looks like the second season of Xbox Live's "1 vs 100" will be its last.  I'm really sorry to see it go, actually, though as Dan Americh reported, it was a *lot* of work to pull off.  I didn't play it every week, though I tried to get in there a lot.  I also enjoyed playing the "bonus" rounds that were done during the week, just to get players points and to also help decide who would be in the Mob or "The One" chair when the show was actually on.

  • Mass Effect 2

    Finally finished Mass Effect 2 last night.  I won't spoil it here, so don't worry.  You can read on.  I have two thoughts on the ending of the game, first as a game and then as a story.

  • Why I didn't buy Alan Wake

    This morning I read Phil Kollar's post about why Alan Wake didn't sell well.  It was a pretty good post.  Rather than add my 2 cents into the long string of comments at the bottom of that post, I thought I would post my own.

    Many people recently have been complaining about aspects of the Game Informer site, and one of the major complaints are the user reviews. Too many people posting reviews that are short and completely irrelevant. Sometimes the game's not even out yet... More
