Found an awesome site the other day as I was searching for phrases from Zelda games. Yeah, I do that.

The Secret to Everybody site takes phrases from the original games and collects them in screen-shot form for you to view. Very fun.


I got this game as a gift from a friend for Christmas. I'm told this is very similar to the Warcraft 3 mod Defense of the Ancients, but I've never played that so I can't really comment on any similarities.

The game is a mix of RTS and RPG. There are two teams and your objective is to destroy the other teams base. Throughout the map are several flags that teams can occupy that grant their side either stat bonuses, increased gold production, or portals that spawn waves of NPC controlled soldiers.

Each player picks either an assassin character (you control one character, but your abilities are typically more powerful) or a general who can command a group of minions. The... Read All

My quick first impressions from the beta (<1hour in):

I miss the old art style. I wasn't a hater on the original footage, and I think that it's okay for the series to move in a different direction, but so much of the game right now looks like the early areas of WoW when you start as an undead. It's good, its fun, its interesting, but it's not how I think of Diablo.

One thing I really miss are the old 2D sprites. They were so detailed, while the new models seems so cartooney, just like the base models of WoW mobs.

Enough with the bashing. The gameplay is spot on. It's just like you remember except they've added fun little things like environmental damage and a more... Read All

I just downloaded the original Donkey Kong for the Wii last night. I had never really thought about it before, but I've never actually played the original Donkey Kong up until now. Of course, I've been familiar enough with it since I was a small child, but for what ever reason, I had never actually gotten around to playing it. Being a history buff, I decided I had to finally give it a try.

In a lot of ways, it was Donkey Kong that made Nintendo. Of course it was Super Mario Brothers which was responsible for the domination of the NES/ Famicom in the 80s, making Nintendo a household name. But it was Donkey Kong which not only made Nintendo into a presence in the global... Read All


Hey all.

Trying out Google Ads on the site, let me know what you think.

I want them to be available yet not annoying. I hope Google can provide them such that they are beneficial to you.

Love to hear your thoughts.


Playing through the game, and doing a lot of side quests, the game almost felt *too* big to do what I really wanted it to: a full scale war.

Now things have happened, and the war is in motion!

Let's do some math:
Deus Ex: $15.99 36 hours 44/hr
Skyrim: $54.99 213 hours 26/hr
Portal2: $49.99 23 hours $2.17/hr

And you know what, Portal was worth every penny.

It was my favorite game of last year, over Skyrim, over Deus Ex, over... everything. Shoot, there should have been an option to leave your web-cam on during the entire game so that you can go back and just watch your own $#!? eating grin for hours on end.

There wasn't a part of that game that I didn't think was about perfect.

Possible my favorite part is this: you go through an entire game without hurting a fly (unless you count personality cores or turrets). No, I'm not a huge pacifist, and I have zero... Read All


Some people actually created a Super Mario Brothers with portals game. Looks pretty awesome.

Can download it for Windows, Mac and Linux.

From the site:

"Two genre defining games from completely different eras: Nintendo's Super Mario Bros. and Valve's Portal. These two games managed to give Platformers and First-Person Puzzle Games a solid place in the video game world. But what if Nintendo teamed up with Valve and recreated the famous Mario game with Portal gun mechanics?"

Anyone here still playing this one? It has been a bit frantic since out went free, but I still pick it up from time to time, you know, looking for hats.

Ive been seeing reports that Valve may release a "Steam Box" to compete with Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft in the console market.

The picture above is from a patent application filed by Valve last year for a "game controller having user swappable control components."

"Apparently meetings were held during CES to demo a hand-built version of the device to potential partners. We're told that the basic specs of the Steam Box include a Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and an NVIDIA GPU. The devices will be able to run any standard PC titles, and will also allow for rival gaming services (like EA's Origin) to be loaded up."

Some more interesting bits from The Verge:

"Part of the goal of... Read All
