This week features a system review and three titles I've never heard of before. I'm always happy to learn about new, weird, and potentially drug-influenced experiences!
Thoughts: The Impossible Game
By Corey Williams
Corey tackles The Impossible Game, which apparently makes players throw triangles and blocks around. Also, the word "impossible" is in the title, which is usually a sign of advanced difficulty. You'll have to read Corey's review if you want a better summary than that.
The Nintendo 3DS is awesome. Sort of….
By Patrick O'Rourke
Are you still on the fence about buying a 3DS? Patrick puts the system through its paces, dissecting the new portable's flaws. Still, he comes away mostly impressed with the 3D gizmo though one fault in particular seems to bug him above all others.
The Stanley Parable
By Chris "Cosmo" Ross
The Stanley Parable is a Half-Life 2 mod. That's about as much as I know. Chris doesn't offer many details on this cryptic-looking game, but he emphatically pleads with us to give the title a try. See if he can convince you into downloading this mod.
Experimenting with LSD
By Chris Charlton
I experimented with LSD once. After the doctor arm surgically reattached my arm, I decided it wasn't up my alley. Wait, what? Ohhhhh…the game! Right, someone did make a title called LSD for the original PlayStation! As you can probably imagine, the "dream simulator" was really, really weird. If you wish to learn more, read Chris' story.
