Weird

Blue Toad Murder Files, Aaaaaafrikaaaaaaa, and 2 upcoming contests

Afrika Screenshot

For those who may not remember (or for those who missed it the first time… Afrika had ZERO presence) the player takes on the role of a photographer in a relatively unexplored region of Africa. After setting up base camp, requests come in via PC for things like "head-on shot of a zebra" or "monkey in a tree" and so on. At that point, it's up to the player to drive out into the savanna and get the required shots.

VVVVVV and Divinity II: Ego Draconis

If you read this blog even occasionally, then you probably know that I'm not much of a PC gamer. However, I do make the occasional exception for certain titles. This evening, one of those special cases found its way into my hardware: VVVVVV by Terry Cavanagh.

Although I had planned on doing more in-depth coverage of the game tonight, after some consideration I decided to hold off until I'm completely done. However, I will say that it's a pretty superb little title, and I'm enjoying the heck out of it.

Half-Minute Hero Second Opinion

ADHD RPG

HIGH The final quest is a perfect realization of what Half-Minute Hero is all about.

LOW Any mode not titled Hero 30 seems dialed in.

WTF Did they have to reuse the catfish overlord so many times?
