A quick reminder that my comic book section has been up and running for over a month now.

Though I didn’t find it as entertaining as previous romps, The Last Specter is a solid title that is one of the best puzzle games on the aging system. Read the rest of this entry »

What started out as a side project has turned into one of the biggest trips down memory lane for anyone who grew up in the 80s or 90s.
