    16 May 2013

    Count this as something I wasn’t expecting to hear about, but after going through it, it sounds quite interesting.  These “trading cards” are achievements, but they are so much more than an imaginary number that one can use for bragging rights.  By collecting these cards through playing the game and trading it with friends and/or […]

    Ah yes, I remember all too well the Disney line-up from my youth: Goof Troop, Darkwing Duck, Chip ‘n’ Dale Rescue Rangers, Bonkers, and of course, DuckTales.  DuckTales become a cult game of sorts due to it being a solid platformer and having some great tunes; I hear the Moon Stage Theme is one of […]

  • EA Giving a Free Game to SimCity Players

    12 Mar 2013

    To say that SimCity has had a rocky start would be an understatement.  With the large amount of people trying to play the game on launch, the servers couldn’t hold everyone, and the servers have either been down or unstable for various players.  I’ve been one of the fortunate ones and have yet to experience […]
