Instant Update: Injustice Gods Among Us

I picked up Injustice: Gods Among Us (PS4) on a PSN sale recently.  I’m definitely more in the Capcom/Street Fighter camp than the Mortal Kombat camp, but I’ve enjoyed them as a diversion.  I also enjoy superhero games.  There are far too few good ones. I haven’t had much time to play, but I did …

Instant Update: Super Hexagon

I still suck at this game.  I just don’t see the path fast enough and reactions can’t compensate any more.  At least I only waste a few seconds per try.  I think I’ll go back to Threes.

Gamers are Different

I’ve been meaning to post this for a while.  Video games change the way you dream.  One of the things I’ve love about games is the way they encourage flexible thinking.  I’m also a fan of increased agency in dreams, games and real life.  Future games should give us more freedom to choose our own …

The original post follows: Microsoft came off a pretty good E3.  Many were wondering if they’ve turned the corner.  I may be wrong, but this …

30 Hours

I think I’ve discovered something about my gaming habits.  I seem to have  a limit of about 30 hours for a game to hold my attention.  I say about since it’s clearly affected by the quality of the game.  So a great game can hold me the full thirty, but an average effort will be …

Dynasty Warriors Gundam Reborn

I had been meaning to pick up Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3, but it got hard to find.   For a while people were asking outrageous prices.  The prices have finally come down.  I was considering getting it when a bunch of reviews for Gundam Reborn started showing up.  I found it interesting that many of them …

Zen Pinball 2 Update

Here’s a little news from the Zen Pinball front.  As you may remember, with my transition to PS4, I moved my pinball gaming to the Playstation platform even though I started with Pinball FX on the Xbox 360.  One purchase will now get me the PS3, PS4 and PS Vita versions of a table.  Of …
