warreni's Blog > Adam West's legacy

Posted warreni on 10 June 2017 - 11:15 PM

Adam West died yesterday at 88, after a battle with leukemia. While best known for the 1966 Batman TV series, West appeared in a number of Westerns and more mainstream films prior to being cast in that role. However, as is often the case with cult phenomena, the double-edged sword of Batman would follow him for the rest of his days; he wished to escape...

Welcome back to the final edition of the Bottom Barrel Bargain Bazaar.

If you've been a bargain oriented PC gamer, you've probably bought into the bundle thing. Humble, Bundlestars, Indie Gala, whatever -- you give them a few bucks, they give you four to ten games, 90% of which you didn't really care about. Sure, each game might average a quarter but most of them are just shrapnel picked up when you really wanted one or two...

Y is for Year Walk
I don't know what to make of my time in Year Walk. It scores overwhelmingly positive on Steam and the store page is filled with glowing reviews. Granted, I was distracted a bit by real life concerns while playing but I found that the mechanics kept me f...
