The Intellivision Flashback and Colecovision Flashback look amazing

I saw AtGames’ Intellivision Flashback and Colecovision Flashback systems in a Toys R Us the other day, and I’ve got to say, we’re in trouble. These things look really cool. I mean, they look like a perfect nostalgia trip. Not to mention, the fact that they’re in stores now, ready for the holiday season, makes more »

The SPERG Skyrim mod’s dog doesn’t have to be a dog

I wrote about the Skyrim mod called SPERG yesterday, which completely revamps the way the perks work. One of the perks is called “Best Friend”, which gives you an unkillable pet dog. It turns out, though, that it doesn’t have to be a dog. The mod lets you change the pet to be one of more »

I refuse to acknowledge that Tetris movie

It’s a great day today, isn’t it? It’s the kind of day where nothing incredibly, ridiculously, unbelievably stupid could ever be announced. What’s that you’re saying about a Tetris movie? No. You’re mistaken. There is no way any company could be foolish and desperate enough to think a movie based on would be possible, profitable, more »

Pokemon strategy videos rock, but actually battling sucks

I watch more than my fair share of Youtube videos involving gaming. One of my favorite series is called The Dex, which brings you interesting trivia and battle strategies for different Pokemon.

Elite: Dangerous Chronicles 2: Docking Permission Granted

In the last episode of “Jerimiah fails at Elite: Dangerous“, I decided that after dumb-lucking my way through less than half of the training missions, I was ready to sit in the big chair. In today’s article, the trend of ramming my ship into everything around me continues, with a good bit of law-breaking thrown more »

I can’t get the latest New 3DS ad’s song out of my head

I’m dying over here. Seriously, I’m about to bash my head into the wall, and it’s all Nintendo’s fault. They had to go and hire to help promote the New 3DS in Japan, and now I’m a victim. Why? Because of “Kisekae.” “Kisekae” is Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s song, and it applies perfectly to the New more »

Skyrim SPERG mod knows the importance of dogs

As you may have guessed, I cycle through several different Skyrim mods that are designed to change the very nature of how Perks work. Some of them make things harder, some of them make things easier, but all of them seek to find some way to balance out playstyle with special abilities. One of my more »

Fate Tectonics Preview: Time absorbing

Fate Tectonics is the unique, new puzzle game that’s much like putting together a complicated puzzle, and then having a toddler smash it to bits. Sound frustrating? That’s the predominant emotion I expected to feel while playing Fate Tectonics and seeing hours of hard work go to waste. However, and quite surprisingly, the exact opposite more »

Ar nosurge needed Ciel nosurge

Even though they’ve always offered a healthy helping of fanservice, I’ve always been a big fan of Gust’s Ar tonelico. I loved getting lost in the lore, and it was always intriguing to get peeks into the lives of the Reyvateils that would save the world. When Ar nosurge , I rejoiced. Given what happened more »
