Music: Five More Random Selections from my Top 100 Songs

Well, I think random picks is probably going to be the way it goes for the rest of my Top 100 song posts, but that’s okay. The songs are great! Sly 2: Band of Thieves – Dmitri’s Disco (PS2, Sony/Sucker Punch, Peter McConnell, 2004) I have to admit that Dmitri from Sly Cooper is arguably…

Opinion: Early impressions for Metroid: Samus Returns!

Opinions: The Best of the Worst – Verdugo (Resident Evil 4)

Verdugo (Resident Evil 4) In a game full of epic and memorable boss encounters, Verdugo stands tall among the pack of nasties Leon Kennedy has to battle on his mission. First off, take a look at him: He’s just a wickedly awesome enemy design. A anthropomorphic nightmare/insect hybrid, Verdugo seems unassuming at first when it…
