Cute Things Dying Violently (PC) Review

 |  Jordan Biordi
Sometimes it amazes me how much Angry Birds took off. I never spent too much time with it; it was a fun little distraction for a while, but I never expected it to launch into console versions, Star Wars and Transformers tie-ins, toys, board game versions, gummi-based snacks, Halloween costumes, a TV show, and now […]

Meet My Wife – She Hates Video Games

 |  Victor Paul Alvarez
I moved into my wife’s apartment shortly after we met. On the first day I brought a bottle of Knob Creek and my Xbox. I asked her where she kept the TV. She opened a closet door and rolled out an old Magnavox. The screen was covered in candle wax. The knobs – that’s right, […]
