Feature: Or Mum, if you'd rather.

Even Your Mom

One of the commonly used phrases in tech and games to describe a foolproof ease of use is ‘even your mom’. “So simple even your mom could do it”.

Feature: "Your mum to destroy humanity"

Impressions – Plague Inc: Evolved

Plague Inc: Evolved, an unfinished but solid version of which is out on Steam Early Access now, is a strategy game about wiping out humanity. At first I felt terrible, as the red dots denoting infection spread across the United Kingdom, into France, across the sea to Norway, and then the deaths began to roll in. Then I grew annoyed at Iceland's panicked closing of…
