Because nothing says ‘games’ like a heaping bowl of potato salad, amirite?
The Potato Salad Kickstarter by Zack Danger Brown of Columbus, OH – fully funded in excess of $3,976 at the time of this post – is in full swing with 26 days remaining. Those considering kicking this start with their own money should first consider the risks. “It might not be that good,” warns Zack. “It’s my first potato salad”.
For as much time as I’ve dumped into Street Fighter, I can’t believe I never noticed this until now. Ryu’s hadouken isn’t a simply a magical ball of plasma; it’s the very projection of his own two hands. Look! Look into those svelte blue flames and you’ll see them – the echo of his outstretched palms.
Wow. How long has this been going on? The whole time? Are the other shotos all the same? Will I see Dan’s puny fist in his gadouken? My world view has been rocked; my jimmies, rustled.
The Lords of Midnight, by the late Mike Singleton, is apparently a classic. I’m just going on word of mouth and Wikipedia entries here. Never having a ZX Spectrum (nor an interest in it), I haven’t done my due diligence.
If paying $4.99 for a game that came out in 1984 seems a bit steep, then maybe this is for you. The Lords of Midnight and its sequel, Doomdark’s Revenge, are currently on sale in the App Store and Google Play for $.99 apiece. That’s a price that’s pretty hard to ignore when you consider the nerd cred you get simply by having it on your phone. Ladies love nerd cred, right? That’s gotta be how it works.
Pick them up and let us know what you think. I just started, so don’t be spoiler jerks.
The Sorcerer Cookie brings some powerful Coin Magic to the table. His pet, the Grimiore, should help tons of players get new high scores. Obstacles move and generally try to throw off your timing. It’s slowly starting to look more and more like the Cookie Run I’ve been playing over on the for Kakao network for some time.
To prove it, one of the best features shows up in a Coupon Code. To enter a code, touch the Gear icon on the bottom left of your Rankings screen. Scroll down and tap on the “COUPON” button. Your browser will open up with a code entry box.

That’s “Cookie Run 2nd Story” for those keeping track at home or may want to pass it along to friends. I got it in three guesses, as the code on the for Kakao version was COOK 2RUN 2NDS TORY last year.
Act now! This code, a $10 value, expires on June 5th at 4PM. Run. Run as fast as you can!
Ace Fishing, by South Korean developer Com2uS, is their latest attempt at bringing digestible sports to mobile sets. With a pedigree that includes Apple Hall of Fame inductee HOMERUN BATTLE 3D on their resume, they clearly know their stuff.
Is Ace Fishing a catch, or is this one we should be throwing back?

As a teacher and a parent, I can’t help but love this little slice of nerdvana in the picture above. Here we have another example of Cookie Run’s popularity in South Korea.
Here we have Cookie Run erasers, as found inside a toy capsule machine near South Korean elementary school. Each pull costs 100 won, or about 10 American cents, though there are other random toys interspersed within. Still, it’s more killer than filler in the one I use.
I remember buying car-shaped erasers for a quarter apiece from my school’s morning supply store back in the third grade. I’m not a car guy, so it seems wholly unnecessary now. However, boring things shaped like cool things? HELL YES! That’s cool-by-association!
