Cheap and Dirty Gamer: Earn to Die 2012 Inspires Playing Beyond the Intro

Earn Die To Die 2012 is a very simple game that has you driving through levels and earning money in order to buy upgrades that allow you to drive further in aforementioned levels (also, these levels have zombies in them, go figure). It’s a fun time killer, but there’s only so much a guy can… Continue reading

Radio Waves for 08/11/13

The only thing greater than having a full week’s vacation from work to catch up on games is having a new pile dropped on top of you during that same week. The dungeons of Skyrim have been replaced with the ruins of Dragon’s Crown. What used to be the demons of Shin Megami Tensei IV… Continue reading

I’m going to be honest with you all, I’ve gotten sucked back into the wastelands of Fallout: New Vegas and waited till the last minute to write Cheap and Dirty Gamer for today. Because of that, I picked the very first game I saw. It just so happens that the game I picked turned out… Continue reading

Jury Finds EA Liable for Stealing Plays from Madden Programmer

So this story actually popped up almost two weeks ago, but because the only areas of the law that I get really excited about (mostly) aren’t the areas I practice in, I wanted to take a minute to digest the filings that I could get my hands on (one of them is redacted all to hell… Continue reading

Gaming Cynic: The Only Way(s) to Make Gamers Happy

Gamers are some of the most oppressed consumers of entertainment in the entire world.

As a gamer, I don’t understand why it’s so difficult to make every single… Continue reading

Cheap and Dirty Gamer: Min Hero Tower of Sages Forced Responsibility on Me

Pets are a huge responsibility and because of this, one should think very long and hard on the prospects of actually owning them. The creators of Min Hero: Tower of Sages don’t adhere to this thoughtful approach to adopting animals as they fling you headlong into a life of caring for combat pets with little… Continue reading

Cheap and Dirty Gamer: I Want to Crush the Castle… Adventures?

It’s really hot today and due to the lack of air conditioning, I am very lethargic and will be putting minimal effort into this week’s Cheap and Dirty.

by with Comments Off on Cheap and Dirty Gamer: The Last Door: Chapter 1 – The Letter is Your First Step

Cheap and Dirty Gamer tends to be a series focused on random games that don’t necessarily steal too much attention away from the larger, more in depth games in your library. While I’ve reviewed some pretty good games, very few of them have gotten into my head in the way that The Last Door: Chapter… Continue reading

Radio Waves for 07/14/13

I’m not the biggest fan of summer as an adult. I don’t get a 3-month vacation, it gets “stanky hot” where I live and, worst of all, there are hardly any new game releases I care about. Luckily, there are plenty of fresh games I’m still playing and soul-crushing digital ultra sales to look forward… Continue reading
