It's kind of a funny story

It’s Kind of a Funny Story

Tuesday, October 26, 2010 1 Comment

It’s praiseworthy when a movie’s title sheds some truth on its content, so I have to give It’s Kind of a Funny Story a small, yet appreciative, bow, because I did chuckle occasionally.

Truly atmospheric games don’t come along very often, but ever more rare are 2D platformers that manage to create their own atmosphere. Limbo is one of those games. Mostly a 2D platformer and part puzzle, part survival-horror, it’s a game so engrossing that you don’t notice that you’ve managed to play through the entire experience […]

Super Scribblenauts

A very wise roommate of mine once said, “Scribblenauts is one of the most original, interesting puzzle games you’ve ever played – for 5 minutes.” It seems the same is true for the enterprising sequel, Super Scribblenauts, which allows the player to integrate up to 2 adjectives into their object-creating madness. The premise of the […]
