Sword & Poker Loses a Little Something in Latest Facelift.

Sword & Poker VS Sword & Poker Adventures

Konami recently released the latest version of Sword & Poker to the App Store under the name Sword & Poker Adventures. The thing is, in "upgrading" the graphics, I feel the game has lost a lot of its charm from the previous two versions. I've said it many times before that the more you leave out of your artwork, the more iconic you make it, the less you give your viewer to dislike. By adding detail, I feel Sword & Power Adventures has strayed from the likeability of previous iterations into a melodramatic style that seems to take itself too seriously. So, in protest, I urge everyone to pick up Sword & Poker or Sword & Power 2 in protest! ^_^

Scepticism And Games! My Two Great Loves!

Anyone who knows me well knows that, besides games, the only topic about which I am likely to talk your ear off is scientific scepticism! This awesome video from It's Okay To Be Smart combines the two beautifully to explain why we all thought it helped to blow in our Nintendo cartridges when they weren't working, all the while giving folks an intro primer to cognitive biases and logical fallacies!
