In My Own Words:
My personal glossary of recurring terms I have derived from the absolute worst of the Amazon community:

"Your comment disagrees with my review - do you work for [company name]?"

TRANSLATION: "I can't stand being criticised, so I must come up with an excuse for not listening to both sides of the argument even though history has taught us that that's a bad idea."

"It's just their own opinion!"

Adventure Time - Season 1 [DVD] [2013] <b>DVD</b> ~ Jeremy Shada

Adventure Time is a series that I've repeatedly heard about since its initial 2010 release, but I never ended up watching it, since it was on Cartoon Network, and thus was unlikely to be on my TV without extra subscription payments for the extra digital channels and the like.

Binding of Isaac (Unholy Edition)/Wrath of Lamb by Merge Games

There are times when you're looking for the perfect kind of game to play during short breaks, while waiting for something, or when you have a lengthy internet video on in the background and want to do something alongside it. My personal choice for this kind of purpose is Binding of Isaac, a twin stick shooter/dungeon crawler/bullet hell/survival horror...thing from Super Meat Boy creator Edmund McMillen.

Procedurally-generated games are nothing uncommon in the games industry, but for the most part, this pretty much amounts to rooms stapled together differently with very little visible difference in the player's mind. This is something Diablo III suffered heavily from, and… Read more
