    Started Bastion last night. Everything about it immediately turned me off. I thought I'd like the narrator, and I think I expected more of a stylized spaghetti western feel. Also though the controls...

    Finished Grimrock last night. It was such a great revelation when I realized I could hurt the wizards once I broke through their magic shields. Really glad I resisted the urge to look online for tips...

    Just got to Level 12 of Grimrock. Oh God level 10 with the invincible wizards--terrifying! And for some reason Level 11 had nothing on it?

    The game is great! If you haven't played it, get it!

    Finished Jamestown, more or less. Beat the last level--the Charge ship came through for me! I had written it off most of the game and mostly used John Smith with some switching back to Raleigh for...

    Oh no! I really recommend you give it another shot. It took me three tries to get into it. A real strong candidate for "Great games with terrible beginnings." The combat is awful, I'm afraid, and...
