I've been enjoying Knytt Underground.
Here’s something I don’t normally do: let a game sit idle while I just soak in the ambiance of it all. Man, that sounded really pretentious, didn’t it? I like to go on hikes and, while atop a hill,...

Not a great soundtrack; merely a good one.
Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U - A Smashing Soundtrack was poised to be the ultimate collection of collected music from Nintendo's deep, deep back catalog. To an extent it is; but there a...

I'm all about side quests these days.
I see a lot of people use the excuse that they don’t have enough time these days to finish games, when I think they really mean they have the attention span of a gnat and have moved on to the next ...

Blek is a curious little game. It hurt my head in the best possible way.
I’m not used to games asking me to be creative. Or, more to the point, I’m not used to games whose sole hook is based on you improvising and thinking outside the box. Or, in Blek’s (pronounced blac...

In which I talk about the big chink in Ocarina of Time's armor.
I can still remember the day I thought I finished The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. You’d ventured to the four corners of Hyrule, gathered the three magical pendants and one mighty Master Sw...

Gunman Clive 2 is a wonderful little game. Not sure if I enjoy it more than the original, but I'm willing to play it more to find out.
