No Matter Where You Go... There You Are.


Out of the wild blue yonder comes Episode 290, and no sooner does it show up than it takes off running. Like a full-on sprint, because dinner's on the line, here. And good luck if that red thing gets there first!

This is the last update in space for a while! Next page, we'll be rejoining the girls on Earth. Surely you haven't forgotten about Rika, Mai and Ruby! Shenanigans happen outside of the confines of space-faring vessels, too.

There were a couple of new gifts since last time! Stormbadger and Sigma serve up a double dose of Ruby, because there's a lot of her to go around. Ruby's doing battle with Cecil, there. May the most intoxicated win! Thanks again, youse guys!

This has been a good couple of months for games. My main man, Eric Chahi, finally released his newest thang. While I would have preferred a puzzle platformer (as I'm not super keen on strategy games or god sims), From Dust is proving to be pretty engaging... technical shortcomings aside. I also got sucked into Catherine for a bit, which is really goddamn good. When developers try to make "mature" titles, folks, this is what they're striving to be. Brutally hard puzzle games still have a market with many of us, Game Industry. Don't let the braying of a vocal minority stifle creativity!

Sega's sending me to Seattle to staff PAX, so I'll be out of town this week. New pages soon to follow!
