Power Rangers, Saban’s imitation of the sentai hero genre in Japan, is a formative experience for most of us in the 1990s and have continued to this very day. Over a dozen variants of the rainbow spectrum suited warriors have left an indelible mark on western culture. Chroma Squad captures that nostalgia with an imperfect experience, but memorable gameplay and undeniable warmth of heart.

Planning for failure

I spent twelve years composing music (“tracking”) for Trideja, and having officially retired sometime in … 2001, I’ve stayed in contact with those still active in the scene and even contribute here and there when time allows. Tracking is a time consuming process, moreso than picking up any instrument, though that’s not the measure of its value.

Gaining Experience: The Pursuit

PC gamers have it rough. Not only must we build and maintain our hardware, cover all of the associated costs of ownership, we’ve got to wade through what is – in 2015-16 – an endless sea of game bundles, remakes and remasters, demakes and community made mods. Sometimes the game we want isn’t even on our preferred platform, and we need turn to a console, be it the Wii U, PS3/4 or XBox 360/One.

Humble Bundle, Indie Gala, Indie Royale, Bundle Stars and more. Choose what you pay bundles have become a go-to for budget gamers to fill out their otherwise sparse libraries. Some bundles even consist of music, movies, tutorials, courses, books and comics. In these cases your choice is obvious; buy if you appreciate the content, but as often happens, gamers face more subtle and frustrating annoyances.

Messy Transition (Hopefully Not)

I’m going to migrate the content of my gaming blog to this, as I realized there’s no reason to segregate the material. It may upset…

David, Thank You

My thoughts are small at this time, they certainly seem so in the wake of the loss on such a great scale. I have never known a man able to connect zithromax no prescription with experience so honestly, and I know I never shall again. He was a man of the time, greater than any time lord, more fragile than any child, stronger and broader than any foundation.
