Cheap and Dirty Gamer: Feed Us: Lost Island is Odell Lake’s Filthy Cousin

by with Comments Off on Cheap and Dirty Gamer: Feed Us: Lost Island is Odell Lake’s Filthy Cousin

When I was in grade school (grammar school for those time traveling to the future from the early 1800’s), I played a game called Odell Lake on the Macintosh computers we had at school. In the game, you played the role of one of many fish trying to survive in the titular lake. What was… Continue reading

Cheap and Dirty Gamer: Lakeview Cabin is Relaxing Until It’s Not

There’s nothing quite like a relaxing vacation to a cabin in the middle of nowhere.  For me, the bets part of this scenario is escaping from the everyday stresses in the big city. Unfortunately, cabin living can also have it’s own problems too, especially when one forgets to expect the unexpected. It’s really hard to… Continue reading

Cheap and Dirty Gamer: Baron’s Gate Brings Beefy Bows

After a week of heavy drinking, heavy eating and heavy sightseeing in Amsterdam and at Oktoberfest, my mind has been a bit fuzzy.

Cheap and Dirty Gamer: Zombies Should Look Both Ways Before Crossing Road of the Dead 2

by with Comments Off on Cheap and Dirty Gamer: Zombies Should Look Both Ways Before Crossing Road of the Dead 2

So I apparently got the “nerd flu” while I was at Gamescom and am currently in the throes of a sickness that is not unlike the initial signs of zombie transformation. This had put me into a foul mood but has also forced me to imagine a world where I actually gave in to such… Continue reading

Cheap and Dirty Gamer: Undead End 2 Surprised My Cynic Muscles

I’ve been reviewing browser games for quite some time now and I’ve learned to take the prospects of zombies games with a grain of salt. Everyone is doing them and while I love zombies, not everyone does them as well as they possibly could. When I first saw Undead End 2, I assumed it would… Continue reading

Cheap and Dirty Gamer: Pooper? Yes, Pooper

Today’s Cheap and Dirty Gamer is brought to you by the letter “F” for frustration. For some reason or another, my computer decided to take a poop directly onto my foot (metaphorically speaking of course) so I’ve been troubleshooting all day. You could also say I’ve been knee deep in crap for the better part… Continue reading

Cheap and Dirty Gamer: Caribbean Admiral is the Life for You if You Enjoy Ruining the Pirates’ Life

by with Comments Off on Cheap and Dirty Gamer: Caribbean Admiral is the Life for You if You Enjoy Ruining the Pirates’ Life

People are always talking about how cool being a pirate would be, but on paper the pirate lifestyle is chock full of jerk-centic behavior. While some people don’t mind taking what the want, when they want it, there are those that like the sensation of both high seas adventure and moral righteousness. If you happen to… Continue reading

Cheap and Dirty Gamer: Lazerman has a Laser Fueled Head

Should one judge the game Lazerman merely by looking at the art above, they’d more than likely think that Lazerman was but a cheap Mega Man ripoff in the guise of a browser game. While the over-sized head and helmet do strike an uncanny resemblance to the legendary “Blue Bomber”, the similarities end there. Somehow, the game’s protagonist got involved with… Continue reading

Cheap and Dirty Gamer: Cleansing Can Be Good or Super Bad

Throughout time, gamers have had numerous opportunities to take control of horrifying beasts and run around doing things that horrible beasts tend to do. We’ve been indoctrinated to believe that once given the reigns of monsters, we should go on rampages and destroy everything in our paths, never once considering that perhaps we have a choice in… Continue reading
