I just got the Toybox Takeover and Speedway expansions for $10 each at Best Buy. Haven't had a chance to try them out, but I really enjoyed Rise Against the Empire. (Except that Lando sounds like some dockworker from New Jersey for some reason.) I know that the individual characters don't do all tha...

So Grim Fandango has turned into one of those games that I just want to be done with, unfortunately. You can either spend frustrating hours randomly trying to find the proper order to do things in, or you can use a walkthrough. There is very little in-between. Few in-game clues or hints, and most of...

Grim Fandango - If you like film noir and the Land of the Dead, this game is for you. Although I am discovering that they do just throw you into the deep end. :) I was just going to say almost the exact same thing because I started Grim Fandango last night. A little bit annoying at times that you a...

I've been playing and enjoying Destiny on the PS4, but discovered another obnoxious element to online gaming. Besides crazy-long load times and rude/hypercompetitive/inept opponents, there's also the fun little fact that if Bungie, PlayStation, my internet provider, or my home network have any probl...

I just found out that I accidentally won seasons 1 and 2 of Everybody Hates Chris for 97 cents apiece. Plus $4 shipping, but that's still not too bad. Unfortunately the guy doesn't combine shipping, and someone outbid me on season 3, and he didn't have season 4. I was kind of hoping to get outbid on...

My family got me City of Lost Children on DVD. Haven't seen it for a while, but remember really enjoying the bizarre fairy tale. I told my wife we have to watch it again ourselves to make sure that it's acceptable for the children before subjecting them to it!

Dr. Who audiobooks on Humble Bundle

So I know next to nothing about Dr. Who, but thought I'd put this up on here since it seems some others might be interested. Humble Bundle has a Dr. Who audiobook bundle going right now. If you're not familiar, it's a "pay what you want, decide where the money goes" that supports a wide variety of c...

So as it turns out, on LittleBigPlanet 3, you can unlock the SKINNY PUPPY MUSIC TRACK!!!! I was playing and thought, "I know that song, but can't place it." And honestly, Skinny Puppy isn't the first band to come to mind when playing LBP. UNEXPECTED AWESOMENESS!!!

Much appreciated! I'm hoping that they'll drop around Christmas, but it would probably be better marketing NOT to since a lot of people will be eager to buy whatever the cost. I did use the free trial and did some online multiplayer in Destiny. It was kind of fun, but I still prefer single-player. I...

I got Little Big Planet 3, and it's been super fun so far. Seems to have brought back the random quirkiness of 1. Then again, I'm only a couple levels in, so can't judge it completely yet. Also discovered that the PS4 requires PSPlus for online multiplayer. Grrrr. I'm not that into online gaming, bu...

Picked up Destiny: Legendary edition on Black Friday deals. It came in the mail today. So far it's a totally awesome... progress bar. 15 hour "update" when I put the disc in for the first time. Talk about disappointing! I miss being able to put in a disc or cartridge and... play a game. Also got a s...

So I broke down and got a PS4 with Disney Infinity 3.0 Star Wars and some (turns out) crappy free downloads. I like the feel of the controller a lot, and I hope the touch pad is used well. The concave analog sticks are awfully nice. I don't have any games that I've played on both systems, but the PS...

I picked up Watch Dogs for really cheap, and wish I hadn't. Sooooo much gratuitous language, frustrating controls, and a main character that I dislike intensely. "Hey, I was committing crimes, and it caused my niece to die. I'M GONNA GET WHOEVER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR... oh, that would be me." I haven't...

How much better than PS3 is PS4?

I'm halfway considering getting a PS4 because my PS3 scratches the tops of all discs it plays. Doesn't hurt the play, but it just bothers me to think that anything I put in there (especially Blurays) isn't going to come out mint. Is the PS4 really that much better than the PS3? I've got plenty of un...

Lil John Snow... that's hilarious! And nobody that I know would get both sides of that, so I can't even share it IRL.

We picked up Winter Soldier on the same Target sale. Still good after 3 watchings. Still haven't seen Dark World or the new(est) Hulk (and no intention to see Hulk, either). I wasn't impressed with First Avenger, so that's not in the collection, but just about every other recent Marvel movie is on t...
