Played Kingdom Rush – Like Me!

Admit it, you have genre prejudice, too. I don’t know what it is about tower defense games, but I can never seem to get over the hump. My perfectionist playstyle makes me hate it when a single enemy gets through. Most of the time in these games a single enemy doesn’t even cause you to lose, but that… Continue reading

Knowing how to escape from a room, whether it’s a prison or a prison of your own inebriation, is a very important skill to have in your arsenal.

Whether my nerves were still shot from the night… Continue reading

I decided to take a nap today after a late night gossip session with Mr. Justin Lacey and almost forgot to write Cheap and Dirty. Fortunately, being cheap and dirty is built into me and my body’s natural alarm system roused me from my slumber. This has allowed me to bring you Slime Laboratory, a… Continue reading
