I like writing reviews of older games because it gives me a chance to play with sprits in Photoshop!
 
Because the world needed a review of a 20 year old game. But really, who doesn't love Yoshi's Island?
After a recent disappointment in our current gaming atmosphere, I had my desire for games rekindled by titles from older generations starting with Majora's Mask. Still wanting to experience some ga...

I have been getting "Change Your Password" emails from Sony quite a bit this week. I imagine someone has found out my log in name and is hitting "forgot password" or something. 

Is anyone else having this issue?

Apparently, there is a python book (for beginners) that is free right now if anyone is interested. It's called Invent Your Own Computer Games with Python.

To make it free, one must send a social network post; so that is why you are seeing this!

But I hear the book is good, so I am going to check it out.

At least we know Iwata didn't miss E3 over a cold or something.
 
Iwata was missing from E3 this year, and now we know why.
During E3 2014, Nintendo president and direct-information-giver Satoru Iwata was missing due to some health issues. At the time, no one knew exactly what those issues might have been, but today we ...

I think #Nintendo killed it, but I am slightly biased.
 
And, finally, Nintendo! #E3  #E32014 
As with Sony and Microsoft, Nintendo just finished displaying some of their new titles at E3. Unlike Sony and Microsoft, we might actually hear about some new games later today and into the week, s...

Microsoft's keynote distilled into trailers. #E3   #E32014  
E3 is kicking off proper today, but yesterday Microsoft and Sony (among others) had their keynotes, as they are wont to do. You may or may not have already seen trailers for all these games, but he...

A post about books by +Aaron Fryklund made me want to share all the novels I have read in the last eight years. For whatever reason, I really like keeping this spreadsheet going and watching the page number totals rise. After finishing The Count of Monte Cristo, I crested 50,000 pages. Bazam!

The most impressive thing is that I have had this same file for almost a decade.

Ah, I see. Just curious because it looks like you stopped after the second book which was my least favorite and almost put me off the series. The next two, especially book 4, are just amazing though.

Yes you'll probably spend between $10-15, but the food is excellent. In our visit, we were brought two small rolls just to try, and afterwards we were given a fruit plate with pineapple and orange slices. I was really impressed.

I hadn't been here in a few years, and I remember it being pretty good. However, now I cannot really recommend it. The short version is that the service was very slow, we had to wait an extra ten-fifteen minutes for three of our orders, and the value simply isn't there. To elaborate on the last point, the orders are presented "family style," as it was described to us, so brought to your table, regardless of the table's orders, are bread, salad, spaghetti, and raviolis. That's not bad in and of itself, but if you choose to order the $15 spaghetti dinner, you are not brought any extra serving of spaghetti. You are brought two meatballs. That's it. And then you are expected to take your spaghetti from the communal spaghetti bowl. The ravioli dinner is also similar. Since a table already gets ravioli, ordering that dish is pretty redundant when what you are brought is just a few more of the same ravioli that is sitting in front of you already. It seems like the best value here is to eat alone. The $15 price point for some of these dishes makes more sense when you, by yourself, get all of the added food that comes with just sitting at the table. Once you start adding people that value goes down, especially when your waitress comes up to your table and says, "Here is your spaghetti dinner!" while only placing two meatballs in front of you. One at our table was waiting patiently for her noodles to be brought out until the waitress on a subsequent arrival told her that her spaghetti was in the bowl that the rest of us had already eaten about two-thirds of. Beyond all that, three of our dishes came out very late, one of which came out by the time the rest of the table was finished eating. We basically threw that meal in a box. Our waitress had no good answer to why the basic gnocchi took so long to cook. I will say that the food itself, once we got it, was not bad. It all tasted fine. From this experience, however, I cannot recommend The Isle over other similar restaurants in the area.
