Life before the ESRB: Truly Hazardous Toys     by Marriott_Guy (11-Oct-12)

While kicking back this past weekend, the unexpected befell this aged bachelor – emergency babysitting duty of my 6 year old niece.  With little time to prepare, it was decided that we would just hang out at my humble abode for the evening.  To my surprise, she was not disappointed at all but actually ecstatic.  This would be her very … Read more

Review: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning (360)     by Tan (11-Oct-12)

The worst thing that could happen while playing an RPG happened to me. I stopped caring about the story. Worse still, it happened so early on that it tainted the fifty hours or so of gameplay after it happened. I don’t think I can really blame R.A. Salvatore for that. Read more

Review: LEGO Star Wars III: Clone Wars (360)     by Tan (04-Jan-12)

When I had first seen gameplay videos of III, I had mixed feelings. By this time, I had already been disappointed with LEGO Batman and the LEGO Indiana Jones series so my expectations were a bit low. Perhaps the very nature of the material lends itself to a better game or a better design philosophy. After all, I’m much more … Read more
