I’m holding off on my retro review so I can give an honest opinion – Left 4 Dead and Pokemon Yellow are too distracting, as well as the dreaded Real Life ((Not the awesome webcomic – that thing where you have to be responsible)). However, I will not fail in my weekly Top Ten lists. This week, it’s my top ten games and series I think you should go try out. I’ll be delving deep into my collection and memories to bring you games that will give you an experience like no other.
Turn off the lights, turn up the volume and load your guns, as we’re jumping into the creepy, spooky, atmospheric Zombie Slay-‘em-up that is Left 4 Dead.

Weird? Well, it should be because I’m forgoing an intro post, so I can delve straight into the action! Bamboozling? I’d hope so, because I’m going to be talking about games, new and old, in a hopefully entertaining manner, which will mean my sanity is sent on holiday, my brain will be turned off and flizzle boingo zblit… Read the rest of this entry »
