This blog post is going to be about events that take place in The Walking Dead, Episode Three. If you haven't already played this episode, do not read this post.

Video: Ohio State University pays tribute to video games at half-time show

I'm not much into the college marching bands, I don't watch college football and no matter how amazing some say Drumline was, it has never occurred to me that I need to watch a marching band actually do anything.

This is a different matter entirely.

The Ohio State University pays tribute to beloved classic video games (and Halo) during the half-time show at the Ohio State University vs Nebraska game. Games honored at the show were Tetris, Pokémon, Super Mario Bros., Tetris, Halo, The Legend of Zelda and Pac-Man. Try not to jump out of your seat and cheer when Epona makes an appearance.

Orcs Must Die! 2 Second Opinion

Legloas Orcs are an Image Forever Seared into My Brain

Orcs Must Die! 2 Screenshot

HIGH A perfect kill that results in massive chain combos of screaming orcs.

LOW When playing solo: maps designed specifically for co-op.

WTF With all the running the sorceress does, that much sideboob and lack of support is hazardous.

The Walking Dead: Episode Three—Long Road Ahead Review

Bring Tissues

HIGH The intensity and emotion is unbelievably high.

LOW Are you REALLY not gonna let me grab that map, Kenny?

WTF A glitch made Duck invisible for a few conversations. Mood killer!

The Preacher Loop

Half-Life 2: Episode One Screenshot

In a recent commentary on Valve's Half-Life 2 Episodes, Marsh Davies criticizes much of Episode One for its "failure to make your navigation comprehensible, either spatially or narratively." He goes on to praise Episode Two for remembering to provide the player with an overview of its regions, so that the spaces allow the player to see the places he has been, or is going to. As I was reminded in my own recent replay of the original Half-Life and its companion games, this is not a recent improvement by Valve, but a return to form.

Orcs Must Die! 2 Review

Sappers Closing In!

HIGH Watching orcs get launched into the abyss/lava/acid/void traps never fails to bring a smile to my face.

LOW Attempting a perfect run, only to have orcs repeatedly slip past when I'm busy elsewhere.

WTF The Sorceress's "clothes" might as well be made of dental floss.

Unmechanical Review

Unmemorable

HIGH Seeing the gorgeous underwater areas.

LOW That's it?

WTF What, exactly, does a world of robots need a giant, beating heart for?

Time Machine: Rogue Pilot Review

Time Warp

HIGH Clearing a level with eight seconds to spare.

LOW Being stuck in one stage for more than 45 minutes.

WTF Going through time and "cleaning up" after the villain by lining up shapes...makes sense, actually.

Trivi.al Review

Did You Know that Only 75% of iPhone Users Download Apps?

HIGH Getting 7 correct answers in a row.

LOW The game crashing when I got 7 correct answers in a row.

WTF The feeling that my random opponents were imaginary.

AbraWordAbra Review

Hocus Pocus. Presto-Chango. Alaka-SHAM.

HIGH Thematically coherent and smoothly animated presentation.

LOW Gameplay that feels like the player is in a drowning tank with no way of escape.

WTF Two modes disguised as four with slight rule tweaks.
