“Can we get much higher?”
I listened to Adele’s two albums yesterday and I really enjoyed them. Her first album is this soulful effort that doesn’t sound too much like anyone else today. I’ve heard comparisons to Amy Winehouse but I haven’t heard her album so I don’t know if that’s a justified contrast but the only one she remotely sounds like is Alicia Keys in that they both like to have old soul sounds and timbre in their music.

So when I finally went through the game, I was very surprised, both pleasantly and in a puzzled manner. Continue reading “I Finally Played Portal. What Took Me So Long?”
Okay seriously. How did people play the old PlayStation Resident Evil games? I cannot control the characters to save my life. The tank controls are so awful. I mean, really, really, REALLY, awful. So terrible. Continue reading “Resident Evil PSone Controls”
