Shadowgate - PC Review

This throwback to the NES classic hits almost all the right notes

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1 - Vita Review

The original game was charming, but flawed. Re;Birth 1 fixes almost all of that.

Akiba's Trip - PS3 Review

It's like playing an anime

Hegemony Rome: The Rise of Caesar - PC Review

Some good takes on the tactical genre, but somewhat lacking in depth in the end

Whispering Willows - PC Review

A memorable, haunting point-and-click adventure

So much to give thanks for...

The subject line really says it all for me.  I have been incredibly fortunate over the last year (and really, several years now).  For me personally, it has been a pretty crazy but entertaining year.  I joked last year when I turned 36 that my birthday did not make me feel old - but my kids' did.  The oldest turned 16 and took driver's education.  My son hit teenage years at 13, and my youngest hit double digits at 10.  Heck, this upcoming year?  15 years married to my wife.

And... it's a new season, so a new color scheme

Now that I am in this seasonal cycle of updating the look of my blog, it's then time to welcome in an upcoming holiday, and a new color scheme.  The white on black is my personal favorite, but I live in a state where it gets very white, very bright and very cold.  I therefore went with some lighter shades - especially the purples as that is easily my wife's favorite color.

Good deal over at GOG right now

Good morning.

Just a quick plug for something I noticed this morning, but Good Old Games has a pretty interesting promotion going right now where you can pick 5 games for $10 from a fairly solid list.
