  1. NuZu and the fifth rank

    NuZu and the fifth rank

    Well, it is pretty late in the Hearthstonemonth but I hit rank 5. Which means very little in the game as Legendary is the whole goal. But! I did it. I have been playing Zoo with two of the new cards from Naxxramas and it is pretty great how even six cards added into the mix switched up the game so much. Especially considering how only three of the cards are used at a significant rate and one of…

  2. Vertical speed

    My iPhone’s rotation lock feature is almost always turned on. The amount of time lost having to deal with the device rotating when I do not want it to is minimum but nonetheless, may as well avoid it when I can. I don’t need it unless I need it. And then I can unlock it. A net gain in time, perhaps?

    But another place this is happening for me is games. I am finding myself much likelier to…

    The next page in my little book gives a basic layout for the game screen. iAd would be on top with the color to match, the score and the remaining time below. Then the blocks take up the bulk of the screen and pause button sits in the bottom left hand corner. And this ended up being basically the layout for the game.

    There are some important changes, though. Originally the color wordwas displayed…

  8. Equipment

    In the search for ideas, inspiration, integrity, iodine and other I-words, I have found myself in the middle of wrapping up my Final Fantasy series replay and working on Dragon Quest now that DQ2 is available on iOS. But the iOS releases are based on the Reprise versions, which while nice, are things I have played before and are not the entire history lesson.

    Fatal Fury: The Movie and Fatal Fury: The Complete OAV Collection are now both available for pre-order on Amazon! (Or if you prefer animetoday, they’re also available there as well.) Release date is Aug 25, 2014.

    I couldn’t care less about these anime, but did their packaging always look like a Neo Geo game box? Brilliant.

    Is this the one they showed on Sci Fi Channel and blurred out the one lady’s butt?

It’s not a Gin & Tonic, it’s a Gin & Sonic, one of our baker’s dozen of game-themed summer cocktail recipes. (OK, it’s just a G&T with a dash of blue curacão for color.)
And here you said games journalism couldn’t have real-world applications.

Was really hoping this was titled “A Baker’s Dozen of Reasons You Won’t Want to Go Outside This Summer!”
