Come mellow out to this oft-overlooked theme from Final Fantasy VII, expertly arranged for the ukelele. Maybe it’s because you never ever hear it, but this tune really brings me back, JNCOs and all.Tweet
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.Tweet
Close your eyes, breathe, and lose yourself within the clouds and vast brick pitfalls of World 1-1. But do mind the time limit.Tweet
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.Tweet
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?Tweet
