McPixel Review


I want to start my McPixel review with one phrase: Buy this game. McPixel is best described as a Wario Ware version of an adventure game. Each scenario has one objective, prevent catastrophe (usually a bomb) using only the objects on the screen. Even though each scenario has numerous endings, only one will be the one you’re looking for. Half of the fun in McPixel is discovering everything in the stage…no seriously, after you find the right answer, you’re tasked with finding the remaining gags and unlocking themed stages.

A Review of Tapfish


My luck with fish has been rather tenuous over the years. My first one actually lasted almost a year. The next ones after that lasted less than 24 hours (both of them), although I think that was due to the fact that they were $0.77 each and that I had bought them from a tank with a dead fish in it. Later on I purchased minnows and they lasted a while (I even had a snail growing!) before donating them to my friend after a few close calls with my cat.

Diablo III Review


I am a huge Diablo fan. I’ll admit right now that I lost myself for many, many hours between the first two games. So when I heard that after 12 long years Diablo was finally getting a third installment – you can imagine how stoked I was. The disappointment I felt after playing through the game, however, is something I could never have imagined.

Gaming Gambles: Dream Trigger 3D


When I’m out shopping I like to check the sale or clearance racks hoping for a hidden gem. Sometimes a game is priced so cheap I’ll pick it up and see if its worth it. Today’s Gaming Gamble is Dream Trigger 3D by D3 Publisher. The back of the box made it look like a mix between Rez and Geometry Wars, and I’ve been looking at a reason to blow the dust off of my 3DS, so I paid eight dollars for it.
