Cheap & Indie: 10000000

I rarely buy games through word of mouth alone. Since I’m thrifty with money, I always read copious amounts of reviews before I lay down my hard earned cash on a game. But when Felicia Day tweeted that she was playing 10000000, I immediately bought the game. I didn’t read any reviews. I didn’t ask […]

13 Resolutions for 2013

I never liked making resolutions. I never follow them. But after almost being successful with mine’s last year (and I would’ve been successful –taking a picture a day and sleeping at least 7 hours– had I not went back to school), I’m planning to do another this year. I will keep it simple and realistically […]

Best Games of 2012

Being a frugal gamer was incredible in 2012. Most of the games I played last year were priced at next to nothing or at nothing at all. A lot of online games hopped into the free-to-play bandwagon. These F2P games kept me occupied, and gave me something to write about. Independent developers also found ways to […]

Cheap & Indie: FTL FTW!

Now, in its fifth iteration, you can get a bundle of four great indie titles like Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Psychonauts, […]

Cheap & Indie: Legend of Grimrock

Early computer role-playing games, like Eye of the Beholder and Pool of Radiance, were difficult for a then 11 year-old like me. They required a lot of strategy and puzzle-solving. In addition, they didn’t have in game maps, or any maps at all. In order to traverse the very confusing dungeons, you have to chart your own map […]

Dirt Cheap Games #1

Playing a good game always satisfies me. But what satisfies me even more is playing a good game that I paid for a fraction of its original price. That’s why I’m always on the look out for bargains. So, in this series of posts, which I’ll call Dirt Cheap Games, I’ll share some of my […]
