I Blame…

She asks if I have this game. No, I don’t. In fact, I hadn’t even heard of it. Well, I have now!

It’s like an unholy cross between Farmville, Tamagotchi, and Pokemon, and I am addicted. I check my cats all day, and take pictures, and yet, it’s a nothing kind of game. Sheesh.

TI5 hype!

Puzzles & Dragons

This always happens: we visit family, someone is playing some random game that we aren’t playing. So we try it out. Next thing you know we are playing and playing and the person (or people) who told us to play isn’t really anymore.


Puzzles & Dragons — actually it’s pretty fun, or at least the orb spinning and team making anyway. I personally do not enjoy managing my monster box. But I didn’t much like that for Pokemon either, though it was somewhat easier. Luckily Yut manages mine for me. :)


I am late with this one, cos it’s from years ago. But anyway, it’s new to me.

In response to a Straight Male Gamer complaining about a male character flirting with his male character in Dragon Age 2 because he thinks homosexuality is disgusting, David Gaider from BioWare wrote one of the most cogent explanations of privilege I can remember reading:

“…the truth is that privilege always lies with the majority. They’re so used to being catered to that they see the lack of catering as an imbalance.”

Diablo III

We were talking about maybe waiting for a sale, but we gave in.

Look! Do you see it?
Diablo III bunny
It’s a bunny rabbit! So really, how could anyone resist?

This past weekend, we beat it on Normal. I’m really enjoying Diablo III; if you at all enjoyed any of the previous Diablo games, you’ll enjoy this one.

Ticket to Ride Pocket

Ticket to Ride Pocket is free right now! It’s a relatively light fun board game made into an app for the iPhone although Yut got it for the IPad and it works fine. Anyway it’s super fun! And includes multiplayer! So even if it’s not free I’d recommend it but it’s a no brainer at free. Go get it!

Ticket to Ride Pocket

We started playing right after dinner; so far I’ve lost twice and won once. Boo! Wait that sounds lame… right after dinner, each of us on our iOS device to play games “together”. Well I still had fun.

TTR Pocket

Sunday 12 February, edited to add:It’s 99 cents now (still on sale but no longer free), still totally worth it. Good implementation and love the multiplayer.

Kingdom Rush

Kingdom Rush

We bought Kingdom Rush for the iPad and this weekend we have been totally addicted! It’s a tower defense game, which we like, and it’s on sale, so we figured why not. Compared to The Creeps!, which I have previously recommended, I think Kingdom Rush is more polished, and there’s kind of a story. Yut thought maybe deeper too. But it’s shorter, only thirteen levels, The Creeps! had lots of levels for the free version with lots of in-game purchase levels; I haven’t totally finished all of the included levels yet. We’ve played through all thirteen levels in Kingdom Rush at least once on Easy, but haven’t gone back to look at the other modes for each level. This game also has a building with units to guard and stop the creep which was somewhat reminiscent of Ninja Town which was one of my favorite Nintendo DS games (seriously you should pick that up if you have a DS whatever), so I was extra predisposed to like it, I think. Anyway, I liked it! If you like tower defense games and want to play one, I am recommending this. (And also The Creeps!) [via Tools & Toys]

By the way, I wrote this post on an iPad, using the WordPress app. I think if I was on a computer, I probably would’ve linked to the Kingdom Rush and The Creeps! websites. And the specific post wherein I wrote about the Creeps, but it just felt like kind of a pain. The plan is, I’ll edit and add those in later. :) I mention this ’cause it kind of clarifies how I feel like the process is convenient enough to mean the difference between blogging and not blogging, but isn’t really great yet.

Edited: I added in some links! Also, you can try Kingdom Rush, there’s a free Flash-based version. I still think it’s worth getting. Playing TDs (tower defense games) on the iPad is a nice experience — the touchscreen is a good interface, and it’s nice to play wherever.
