    Last week I played Ballblazer, an extremely rudimentary soccer-like game from a company that eventually became LucasArts. It was a game I had never heard or played before, and not one I'll probably ever play again. Yes, it was that good, heh heh.

    I've been considering blogging about this subject for a little while now. And I suppose in a sense I sort of have in that I've already blogged about one of the games I'm going to mention here. I think what finally pushed me over the edge was... More

    I lost a game today. It was a good game. Well, I liked it. But there were plenty of others that didn't. It was an online only game, so when the plug was pulled, that's it. Game over. The handful of people like me, who liked the game, unfortunately... More

    I decided a while ago I was going to replay all of the Half-Life games starting with the first one and going through all of them one by one, start to finish. The main reason was to see how the games have aged over the years - whether they're still... More

    It might seem like I play a lot of video games, and who knows, maybe I do. But I have lots of other interests too. I'm always looking for new things to try. So, the other day when my boss was passing out booster packs of Magic: The Gathering (MTG... More
