on Thu, Apr 29, 2010 | By Jeffrey L. Wilson

Anyone who knows me well has at one time or another endured chatter that detailed how Bejeweled Blitz is one of the most perfect and addicting games ever made. It’s “desert island game” good.

NBA Jam: Developer interview, gameplay footage, and impressions

on Sun, Apr 25, 2010 | By Jeffrey L. Wilson

I’ll be frank: When the first screen of the upcoming NBA Jam were released to the public in February, I was more than a little skeptical.
