I grew up on these books, but it's been years. It was surprisingly easy to sink back into the world once more

Simple graphics hide a deceptively deep story in this platform puzzler

PlayStation Network Summer Sale

Apparently Microsoft isn't the only one with summer release plans (meanwhile Nintendo appears content to continue sitting on the sidelines.  How long until Steam's summer sale hits I wonder?)  Anyway, Tuesday, July 3rd, the following games will be available at 30% off (50% off if you are a PlayStation Plus Member).

J.U.L.I.A Untold HD - iPad Review

I recently touched on the game J.U.L.I.A for the PC, and found myself liking it quite a bit.  Recently Lace Mamba released J.U.L.I.A. Untold HD for iOS, which is a direct spinoff of the original game.  Like the original J.U.L.I.A, Untold HD tells a self-contained story through a text-heavy adventure augmented with a wide variety of puzzle games.

J.U.L.I.A - PC Review

I really did not know what to expect when going into J.U.L.I.A for the first time.  I had liked some of the screenshots I had seen, and enjoy a good adventure game from time to time.  This sci-fi game starts you off in the role of a scientist who wakes up after a long period of cryogenic sleep to find out she is the only person left on her ship, which is run by an AI that informs you that your ships is damaged in orbit around a mysterious planet and that the AI's memory is missing in places.

Worth the wait? Mass Effect 3 - Extended Cut DLC

I have given a lot of coverage to Mass Effect 3 at this site so far, including a review where I gave the game high marks despite the controversial ending.  While I did not mind the ending, it was quickly made clear that a lot of other fans felt that it was a complete disservice.  I never fell in-line with that thinking, but I did feel like the ending was lacking in impact from your decisions and it felt a bit undercooked.  Shortly after the public backlash over the ending to Mass Effect 3, Bioware promised an Extended Cut DLC that would not fundamentally change the ending, but add context to what was already out there.  So how did it fare?  Warning - spoilers ahead!

My recent articles on Otaku Gaming

Well, with me having been ridiculously sick, my posting volume on Otaku Gaming was certainly affected as well.  Still, I managed to get out a fair number of posts and maybe a few will interest you?  Let's start off with my article about Ragnarok Tactics and its release information.

Marvel Pinball 3D for 3DS - Trailer, Screens & Release Info

So I just saw a press release from ZEN Studios in reference to Marvel Pinball 3D for the Nintendo 3DS, which is set to release June 28th, 2012 in North America and Europe for the Nintendo eShop.

Oh it's been a long, long week and weekend...

And unfortunately that's not 'long weekend' as in: It was loads of fun.

No, I managed to stay sick for over a week and I'm still not at 100% and don't expect that I will be until Wed or Thursday at the moment, but the worst of the bronchial infection appears to be over.  This is absolutely the sickest I have been in at least 10-15 years.  I mean, the first few days, I didn't even play video games.  That's like deathbed illness there I tell you.

But, over the weekend I did log some pretty heavy game time between Mass Effect 3's multiplayer, Game of Thrones on Steam, Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 on Steam and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 for the PS3.
