Important Milestones.

I reached an important, nay, critical moment in PS3 ownership this week. Our local “Fred Meyer’s” had the collector’s edition of “Stranglehold” on clearance for $24.95, with all clearance items being discounted an additional 20%. So now I own my … Continue reading

Curse you, Penguin-hugging girl.

I can’t figure out how to unlock Miyuri in the free battle mode in Suchie Pai III Remix for the DS. Apart from that, I’ve beaten the game with every character and gotten their “good” ending, so I think I … Continue reading

We hope you’ve enjoyed our game. We’ll wrap it up in the sequel.

I finished Kingdom Hearts yesterday, and it was quite an enjoyable ride.  There was no Psychonauts-style Insane Difficulty Jump at the end, the Disney-themed villain in the last world was a really nice surprise, and even the Patented Square Multi … Continue reading

Cute Tanuki Girls… That’s different.
