My Favorite Game of 2014 Was …

2015-01-20 12.04.05

Monument Valley. Monument Valley (Ustwo; iOS/Android: $4) is a small game. It won’t take you long to finish, and it’s not very challenging, but what it offers is such a pure delight that it became my personal favorite game of 2014.

mapsiphone

Government bureaucracy is the kudzu of modern civilization. It’s a smothering, all-consuming, self-perpetuating monster that sucks the life out of everything it touches.  Case in point: for some bizarre reason known only to the infantile minds of government functionaries, Obama’s Transportation Department (go ahead, I defy you to explain why a such thing even exists) [Read More...]
