Condemned: Criminal Origins

What do you mean, it’s the wrong Condemned? It’s a sad fact that I have a natural affinity for cheap games. When I saw the PC version of Condemned sitting on a shelf, mocking me with its $5 pricetag, I … Continue reading

Mass Effect in Brief

My initial impressions of Mass Effect‘s overall package: Prologue planet: This isn’t a war, it’s a moider. Citadel incursion: Politics, eh? You’d better give me some of those. Planet the first: Save the Diva Plavalaguna! Planet the second: Protect the … Continue reading

Grand Theft Auto IV: Genetically Superior?

Live from the Moon!

Fellow citizens! I come to you from a strange and wondrous place. You see, I find myself in Doenau Wine Country, tapping this to you on my Wii. It is easier than expected while still somewhat tedious. And I’m floating … Continue reading
