  • Possibly deranged writer seeking volunteers to revive series of terrible NES adaptations

    Near the peak of the NES era in the early 1990s, very few video games were allowed to simply exist in game form. Instead, unspoken rules dictated that every video game had to be adapted and repurposed to within an inch of its life—as a crappy TV cartoon, a crappy breakfast cereal, a crappy comic […]

Last month, after finding some strange dice at an odds-and-ends store in Chicago, I invited Gameological readers to figure out what the heck they were. The only evidence they had was two pictures of the dice, yet at the end of an afternoon of exciting detective work—everybody […]

  • Clicking Bad

    Here, get pointlessly addicted to this empire-building browser game based on Breaking Bad

    A couple of weeks ago, Steve Heisler reviewed Cookie Clicker—a game in which you ramp up large-scale production of cookies by clicking on things—and compared its empire-building dynamic to Walter White’s rise to greatness in Breaking Bad. Indeed, the show’s narrative thread of ruthless, exponential growth is a good fit for these “clicky-click and watch […]
