I made a choose-your-own-adventure-game called Jury Duty using Quest. One day I’ll make a proper text adventure. One day being sometime this year, hopefully. From the description in the game file:
Life is fine for you, with college and video games taking up the vast majority of your time. All this is about to change (for a few days) when you receive a summons for Jury Duty. Avoid it at all costs, but who knows what will happen if you do?

I have a pretty curious addiction. I’m addicted to buying t-shirts.
I finished Bioshock Infinite a couple of days ago (and if you missed it, here was my little screencap post). Quite an impressive story for sure, but the greatest mindfuck of all time? Nah, I don’t think so. Here are just four stories that I think are more of a mindfuck than Bioshock Infinite. As you may expect, SPOILERS AHEAD!
I think it’s pretty clear I haven’t been too inspired to write much lately, but I guess that’s because I haven’t been doing too much lately, other than playing video games. (What’s new there?) So I thought I’d write a post on what I’ve been playing over the last month or so. Read More
Wanderlust is fast approaching. My chum Mitzi just came back from Japan and
I’m heading off to China and Singapore in two months (!!). But for now,
I’ve put together a list of five places I’d love to visit. They’re not exactly your conventional tourist haunts though…

I’ve been meaning to write an review/article about Spirit Camera for a while now, due to how strongly I feel about the game. I feel strongly enough about it to have named it my ‘Most Disappointing Game’ in Rocket Chainsaw’s Rocket Recap for the second half of 2012. (For the whole year of the 2012, Spirit Camera ties with Yakuza: Dead Souls. Oh dear, oh dear.)
How could it have come to this? Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir, a spin-off Project Zero/Fatal Frame game for the Nintendo 3DS, excited me when I first heard about it. I was hoping that this game, would be a solid horror game and a worthwhile recommendation to 3DS owners. After all, given the Fatal Frame pedigree, those expectations aren’t too ridiculous, correct? Evidently not, and it smarts of wasted opportunity.
Happy Valentine’s Day, folks. In celebration, I bring to you one of the most interesting renditions of one of the most messed-up “love” stories. The Caterpillar, a classic by the famous Japanese storyteller, Edogawa Rampo, is about a heavily disfigured war veteran, having paid the price for his efforts with all four of his limbs. Unable to walk, talk or care for himself, he resembles a human caterpillar, much to the dismay of his wife, whose treatment of him eventually results in tragedy. The tale has been adapted for film (see Rampo Noir and Caterpillar) in the past, but who better to turn such a story into a comic than Suehiro Maruo, king of the erotic grotesque?
Yesterday, I received an interesting email from a company called Media Discovery. They were wondering if would be willing to sell some “unobtrusive” advertising space on this very blog. Here was the email I received:
Presenting game no. 2 resulting from my forays with RPG Maker: BloodMad. It’s more serious than Ghost Hunter, really. From the readme:
Neuro wakes one day, surrounded by grimy walls in a place he doesn’t recognise. He is blackmailed by a demon named Rake into helping him collect the blood of the monsters that inhabit this strange world in order to please the Grand Master of demons. Thus begins BloodMad.
