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.

In exchange, I agreed to buy a copy of Critter Crunch, which was available on the PS3. So far, we haven’t coordinated a time to swap/play…

Game Review: Dragon Age

During this last week, I’ve spent a great deal of time playing Dragon Age: Origins. I’ve played a few games here and there since I’ve purchased my PS3, but this game has me playing for hours and hours at a time. I’m a sucker for RPG games. Throw in some dungeon maps, and I can play that stuff all day…
