Playing Journey

Visually and sonically, it’s a beautiful game. As gorgeous as the game is graphically, the music adds a great deal – I daresay it wouldn’t be quite the same game without the soundtrack. I’m not able to link to the video directly, but the first video on this page should give you a sense of what went into the game’s soundtrack.

You’ll Ruin Your Eyes Doing That…

This is me, sitting WAY too close to my TV so that I can play video games. Recently, Liz has been working a ton in her off-hours, prepping for a big presentation she has at work next week. She’s been doing six-day work weeks for about two weeks now… and today, she was sitting at the dining room table going…

Dead Island: Haunting, Cinematic Video Game Trailer

I recently watched a video game trailer that absolutely floored me. It’s for a game called Dead Island and it involves zombies. That’s pretty much all you need to know. Fair warning before you watch the videos below – it’s a bit gory, with axes and blood splattering. If you can imagine it in a zombie horror movie, it’s there….

Starcraft II

So I purchased Starcraft II over the weekend, and I’ve been playing it a good deal for the past few days. Keep meaning to do some bigger blog updates, but the game’s been getting the better of me. It’s been a while since I’ve purchased a game for my Mac (or at least, one that wasn’t from Steam). Really enjoyable…

Poker Night at the Inventory

After buying the game about a month or two ago, Poker Night at the Inventory was released yesterday. It’s your basic poker game, but with a twist. Your opponents are characters from other video games: Max from Sam and Max, The Heavy from Team Fortress 2, Strong Bad from Homestar Runner, and Tycho from Penny Arcade. I’m less familiar with…

Game Review: Torchlight

I presume part of Valve’s strategy in releasing Portal for free was to entice more users onto their game delivery platform, Steam. And then, the more users who have this program running… the more chances someone will buy a game. It didn’t take me long to succumb, as a few days later… I ended up buying a new game from…

Relaxing with Old Games

Lately, I’ve been revisiting games on my Mac as a way to decompress from all the moving and painting. I played Grid Wars 2 for like 40 minutes and I’ve started up (again) the fantastic Penny Arcade game On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness, Episode One. Robots, mimes, hobos and turn-based fighting, all set in the early 1900’s. Playing this…
