Your Free Game for the Week: Tetris HD

At first, I thought it was a joke. “If I play long enough, will a scary face pop-up and scream at me? Maybe a message will fade in, mocking and degrading me for spending so much time playing.” These were just a couple of thoughts that stacked up in my head as I sat playing […]

Your Free Game for the Week: Insaniquarium

I received an e-mail a couple of weeks ago with my first free game recommendation from a loyal reader. Admittedly, I didn’t know what to expect when I opened the message.

With each trip down the hill you carve out new paths in the fresh winter snow, creating routes that wind through the trees with […]

Released on February 17, Rockstar Games launched the long awaited expansion to Grand Theft Auto IV over XBox Live. The Lost and Damned, an Xbox 360 “exclusive,” brings more that just a few new missions and some extra neat-o cars for Niko Bellic to rampage through the streets of Liberty City. In fact, Niko isn’t […]

Movie Sum-Up: Friday the 13th

First, just to clarify, this is a reboot. I know, I know; the word “reboot” does little more than exemplify the ever-increasing stagnation of originality in Hollywood. But for fans of the horror/slasher genre as well as the original Friday the 13th films, don’t let that discourage you from giving this film a chance. Sometimes, […]
