I emailed Sam Coster — he’s the designer half of the two brothers over at Butterscotch Shenanigans. He was kind enough to answer my questions: – Will the game come to iOS or other platforms (someone asked for […]

Crashlands

I got an email today from Butterscotch Shenanigans, the bad ass team of brothers who made my favorite Android game Quadropus Rampage (see my review). My excitement quickly turned to sorrow. When I got my cancer diagnosis What the fuck?? Turns out that Sam, age 23, was diagnosed with Stage 4 lymphoma. There are different […]

Cards Against Humanity Combats Inhumanity

I was one of the lucky 100,000 to get in on the Cards Against Humanity 12 Days of Bullshit promotion this year. The promotion was $12, and they sent me (or tried to send me) one day for every day leading up to Christmas. Of course, the USPS fucked it up, but hey, CAH tried. […]

I supported the Ascension Online Kickstarter in February of this year and I have been impatiently waiting ever since. There were delays in getting the Windows client out before the end of the year, and the Android version (the real reason I kicked the project) wasn’t coming out this year at all. With just five […]

eForcity Dual Playstation 3 Controller Charging Station Review

The Adventure Begins

The Adventure Begins

It’s been over six years since my Year of the Zombie (YOTZ) role playing game came to a close. I served as the game master, or emcee, for five other players who attempted to survive the zombie apocalypse — in Disney World. Fast forward in time. I live in Minnesota now, and we have established […]

PlayStation 4 Initial Impressions

PlayStation 4 Initial Impressions

My Sony PlayStation 4 console arrived on launch day. I’d pre-ordered the PS4 console and the game WatchDogs from Amazon in October. Unfortunately Watch Dogs was delayed until 2014, and Amazon downgraded me to a console-only pre-order and refunded me the difference. Getting a PS4 without WatchDogs is better than no PS4 at all, right? […]
