I am a huge basketball fan, be it the NBA, the NCAA (YAY, DUKE LOST!), the Euroleague, FIBA, the Olympics or the pickup games right on our street corner. I also loved the manga and anime Slam Dunk (I am not even a fan of manga or anime, by the way). I rage at anything [...]

When I was kid, I wanted a pool table. Instead, my parents got me a ping pong table. While I was disappointed, I grew to like ping pong. So when I saw World Ping Pong Championship get released, I was cautiously optimistic. Unfortunately, rather than reminding me of the fun I had playing ping pong, [...]

Bee Wars is one of those games that was announced (last summer, 2010), then sort of disappeared into limbo, completely forgotten by me until suddenly it appeared just last week. India-based Gameshastra was one of the earliest Minis developers. Then, they seemed to move away from them for a while (to iOS, naturally), but this [...]

It’s been a while since Gameshastra has graced us with a Mini. Nocturnal, though, is not a new game but a port of one of their PC titles, Nocturnal: Boston Nightfall from a few years ago. It’s a hidden object game, a staple of casual gaming. Basically, you are presented with a scene and given [...]

Two things were incredibly popular in movies in the 1980s—Tom Cruise and a song on the soundtrack by Kenny Loggins. Top Gun, a movie about the U.S. Navy’s program for fighter pilots, combined both of these things. And now it’s back, not in POG form, but Mini form. It’s the second Tom Cruise game from [...]

One of the ways I like to impress people that I meet (well, women that I try to pick up) is mentioning that I was in a Tom Cruise movie. It’s one of those things, like having beaten up an NFL player or being bitten by a shark, which while perfectly true, isn’t as impressive [...]
