Star Trek Online to add Leonard Nimoy Memorial to Planet Vulcan

I don’t play as much as I used to, but I used to play a great amount of Star Trek Online. So much so that I even have a lifetime membership. I’ve stopped playing because I don’t really like MMOs and it began to feel a bit repetitive, but one of the things that kept more »

The Mysterious Shadows of Skullshadow Island: A Brothers Coleman Mystery

Good parody or satire transcends the thing that’s being parodied or satirized. You don’t have to have seen westerns to like Blazing Saddles, disaster movies to like Airplane!, or blacksploitation movies to like I’m Gonna Git You Sucka.

Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires is great for building harems

I’m an otome game fan is. That is, I enjoy dating sims for women, where a player has a harem of men around to meet every possible need. Perhaps it’s because I grew up on shoujo (girl’s) manga and anime, I don’t know. All I know is, if it’s possible to attempt a recreation of more »

Have you played Crossy Road yet? Given it’s a free-to-play game available on both Android and iOS, it seems quite likely.
