Thrice Upon a Time, In the West

The thing to understand about me is that I love Westerns. I've loved Westerns ever since I was a little baby and my father got me to stop fussing by putting on a late-night television show called John Wayne Presents. While I can't hold a candle to my father's fandom of the Duke, I have a fair stash of John Wayne DVDs on the shelf.
Just Cause 3

November 30 – December 6

You might say your favourite meal is a turkey dinner with all the trimmings, but how often do you get to eat it? What you’re actually built from is the ninja-vegetable bolognaise that your mom produced by the vatload on Sundays, then re-presented to you every day until about Thursday.
I'd like to begin this review with a quote from Gomez Addams: "I have seen evil! I have seen horror! I have seen the unholy maggots that feast in the dark recesses of the human soul!

Tears of Time

Ultima 7 Steam Sale Thanksgiving

November 23 – November 29

Rumor has it that this Wednesday is the beginning of the Steam sale, and it sounds like Valve is dropping the short-term daily and flash-sale model in favor of dropping prices and keeping them there for the duration. That's much more boring, but I'm thankful for it all the same.
Is it unethical to return a game that you've beaten? Is it more unethical to allow the people who made it to keep my money?

The Way It's Meant To Be Played

Have you ever discovered that you've been doing something the hard way for years? Not wrong, exactly. Just in a sub-optimal way. Like if you spent five years watering your lawn with plastic grocery bags because you didn't know about hoses. What if you actually enjoyed using plastic grocery bags? What if that was fun for you? Relaxing?

November 16 – November 22

Hey, look! Another Star Wars game that I will have the distinct pleasure of ignoring completely. Speaking of dead horses, It's not every day that one of mine gets resurrected after years of me beating it.
