May 12th, 2010 by

Steam is available for Mac.  And one of my all-time favorite games, Portal, is free (until May 24)!  See the full article at Gizmodo.

Thanks to lostarchitect for the tip.  What would I do without you?

Leggo my Lego

November 20th, 2009 by

We have been obsessed with the Lego series games lately.  They’ve been around for so long, and I had no idea how fun they are until just recently.  So cute, and no talking.

Lego Star WarsIn semi-related news, I read this article in Slate about co-op game play.  Luckily, no one I play with is as jerk-y as what he describes.

Favorite games of all time

September 19th, 2009 by

1. Grim Fandango – I love the imagery and the dialogue.  In fact, I used the music and some of the poems from this game for an animation in architecture school.

2. Monkey Island – Haven’t tried the latest incarnation, but hopefully I’ll have some time for this soon.

3. Portal – SO EXCITED for the sequel.

4. Katamari – ditto

5. Little Big Planet – This is so cute and fun, but sadly I haven’t played much since my brother moved to another state.

6. Loco Roco – The cutesy noises the blobs make are kind of annoying, but I’m still searching for all the hidden spaces and fruits.

7. River City Ransom – I can’t count the hours my brother and I spent beating up thugs with a chain or steel pipe.  We must’ve finished this game at least a dozen times.

8. Jumpman – I used to come home from school and play this game over and over.  The graphics were so simple, but the game is so addictive.

9. The Simpsons – This was one of the few arcade games I really liked.  The new game is good too.

10. Dragon Warrior – We would spend all summer vacation searching for the metal slime in order to accumulate experience points.  I would never have patience for this now, but at the time, we were obsessed.

Rolling rolling rolling…

September 4th, 2009 by

I just read today that there will be a new Katamari game coming out in September, Katamari Forever.  I’m super excited, since I couldn’t play the last one (Beautiful Katamari) that only came out for Xbox.  Time to clear out the last week of September, because I want to devote my time to rolling up everything in sight.  In the meanwhile, I feel inspired to make some clay katamaris, or maybe the royal family.
