Supertype! Not Just a Game for Nanas

  The name Supertype might make you think that this is for people who like Scrabble and crosswords. I have nothing against these people (being one myself) but I would be very sad if someone overlooked Supertype as a game only your Nana would play. Sure, the game’s aesthetics has a bunch of backdr...

Reflections on “This War of Mine”

I think I’ve got it this time. Of course, I’ve thought this at the start of every game. But this time, there are signs that my new strategy’s working. My crew’s in good health, we’ve got a respectable food stash, and no one’s sick or injured. Not only that but we’re...

Upgrade

It’s not my habit to research movies before I go to review screenings. But just before the lights dim, I find myself regretting it. Movie buddy Nick’s just told me that the trailer’s full of gore. I’m also wondering why I’m voluntarily putting myself through a film from the sam...

Love Trains? How about some Mini Metro…

Somewhat sad confession: subway maps make me excited. That little piece of paper with candy-coloured lines blooming like veins represents travel and adventure for me. So it’s probably no surprise that Mini Metro has become one of my go-to tablet games. Mini Metro was developed by the even more endeari...

Ready Player One

If you like playing “spot the pop culture reference”, then don’t look any further. Ready Player One is a veritable homecoming for any geeky child of the 80s to feel they’re back in style. But to go backward in time, we must first go forward. The movie kicks off in the year 2045 where...

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Going into this, my husband and I were musing about The Rock’s recent career in movies that we would never see. “The Rock in yet another remake,” said Husband. ” I guess they needed a stereotypical buff guy,” I replied. I have never been so glad to be wrong about Dwayne Johnson...

Edifier G4 Gaming Headset: a little bit sexy

Okay, I admit that branding can be a point of pride for many gamers. But while I’d like to think of myself as a SteelSeries gal, I’m really just an indiscriminate gadget freak.  So it was with some guilt and excitement that I put my trusty Arctis 7 aside and donned Edifier’s G4 headset for...

The Pillars of the Earth: Book One

Man, life was hard in the middle ages. Especially when you have to give birth. In the snow. And your husband has no clue what to do. This is pretty much how useless I was playing as Tom Builder in the prologue of The Pillars of the Earth. Watching my wife bleed all over the ground, I finally had enough wits...
