Where’s the multiplatform Peggle 2?

I’m a self-proclaimed Peggle addict. I savored that game, enjoying it immediately after its 2007 launch on the PC, but then also following it to the PS3 and even putting it on my Nexus 7.

The term “free-to-play” has grown more and more misleading with the way some games handle microtransactions.

Video Game Critic Simulator is good for a few laughs

My parents raised me to realize that sometimes you really need to just laugh at yourself. Sometimes making others happy at your expense is as good for you as it is for them. There’s a reason I always say “Hump Day!” at least once every Wednesday. I don’t care if people laugh at me, at more »

I’ll buy a PS4 for RIME, Witness, and Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture

I am a huge fan of indie games. I love supporting the “little guy”, so to speak. This adoration has led me to a tough decision. I didn’t have any plans to buy a “next generation” console any time soon, but this year’s indie offerings might make me change my mind. While everyone’s heard of more »
