Sometimes you start a new game and hope it'll push your skills to the limit, sometimes you want to play something so ambitious it'll upend everything you thought you knew about a genre, and sometimes all you can do is get down on your knees and pray the adventures of a schoolgirl with the powers … Continue reading CATBLOBS FROM ANOTHER DIMENSION
A surprise list appears! But don't panic - you will believe what number seven looks like now and fifteen is unlikely to shock you - what's happened here is I'm very short on time, would very much like to write something before I probably disappear from my blog for a week or so (if not … Continue reading Twenty five for twenty five
