Legacy of the First Blade is one of the most egregious lesbian storylines I’ve ever seen.
I don’t need another anger hobby, I have Twitter. Give me easy games, bud. That’s what I want.
“Maybe it’s my depression talking, but I think running errands is heroic.”
It’s a really pretty game, though, and there’s a very good dog.
This game was exactly what I needed: a couple of hours where my busy brain could focus on tangible puzzles with achievable solutions.
“It’s not even about fanciness or property ownership as much as it’s about imagining if my house could just be clean right now? It’s a powerful drug, let me tell you.”
Merlin’s Beard, Jam City! Way to take all the magic out of Hogwarts!
The combat has a frenetic arcade-iness that makes me a little giddy even as I’m being chewed up by the robot dog that was for some reason built under the metallic skirts of the robot diva that was for some reason deemed an essential part of the robot invasion force.

A brief journey through the clicker games that have, if only briefly, buoyed me through ennui, ranked very subjectively by how effectively they distracted me from the always-looming malaise that dogs my every step!
“We take the role of Ryder, who is a far cry from Commander Shepard. She’s young and untried, great at sudoku but bad at flirting. She’s awkward and not entirely ready for command.

No one who had ever seen MMOs in their infancy would have supposed them to be taken over by Janeites.
Exactly what it says on the box. Fallen London has an iOS app. It’s also pretty gay. Let’s play.
Gone Home’s console release is stellar, and so is the fact that it got a console release.
