If you were a nerd in the late-80s/early-90s there are a series of games that cemented your love of computers. I spent more time questing for “the king”:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King%27s_Quest, “space”:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_Quest, or “the police”:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Police_Quest than I have playing any XBox 360 game (although I think Rock Band may be competing to take that badge.) After those games […]

Several of us had a near-death experience Sunday, but I wanted you all to know that we’re just fine and explain what happened. Becky, Sandy and I decided to go see the new Batman movie — awesowe, btw — and we got a call from Mike and Kelly that they were going to the same […]

Still in love with the Wii Fit, and logging in faithfully almost every day. Sadly, none of my Wii buddies love it as much as I do (or maybe, my Mii is just really boring?)

A shiny WiiFit box was waiting for me when we got back from a long weekend with the family for the Memorial Day holiday. I’ve been eagerly awaiting this game for months, and I’m pleased to say I wasn’t disspaointed. The exercises are not only a blast, but they’re actual EXERCISE – my heart rate was […]

I know “this is”:http://wii.ign.com/objects/142/14247618.html targeted at tween girls, but I know more than a few rhythm game lovin’ people who would want try this out. ==== …and I’m probably fey enough to want to play it, too. Then again my wife accuses me of being a tween girl at heart.

SBCG4AP is rumored to be headed for a small home in Portland, Maine. The owner of the home, Kevin Photiades (52), had this to say “No, TVs and Wiis have no place in my home.” Despite the utter super badness of Strongbad in his own video game Photiades denies any desire to purchase a Nintendo […]

Sony really thinks the future of console gaming is community created/driven content — sort of the Web2.0 for games. They are really excited about the upcoming release for the PS3, “Little Big Planet”:http://ps3.ign.com/objects/856/856680.html. I’ve been watching the videos they’re releasing with mild curiosity and the latest ones have a really catchy tune that I think […]

Let’s face facts. I am getting old and cranky — even when it comes to video games. I don’t have the time/energy these days to learn your fancy intricate control systems or memorize your belabored backstory. I want to start the game (without a drawn-out installation or configuration) and immediately enjoy it, then quit when […]
