    It's ugly to watch a grown man gush over a puppy. The kissing. The cooing. The "widdle-doggie" talk. Embarrassing stuff. So it was with trepidation that I approached Nintendogs, the cuddly dog-rearing sim for Nintendo DS. A million and a half peopl...

    Prophecy Not Fulfilled - Indigo Prophecy offers creepy fun, but fails to live up to the hype.

    Waking from a trance, you find yourself in the restroom of a diner. You just stabbed a complete stranger to death as he urinated. Blood is on everything -- including you. And to make matters worse, a police officer is sitting outside, drinking coffee...

    Poor Baby - The Alley premieres a comedy no better than a generic pilot for a canceled sitcom

    Saying anything even slightly negative about Ken Ludwig's ultra-nice, insignificant world-premiere comedy Be My Baby, presented by the Alley Theatre, is a bit like kicking a puppy, but those Scrooge instincts just won't stay buried: A little kicking ...

    Roll Play - "We Love Katamari" pretty much says it all

    Last year's Katamari Damacy was so quirky, it should have been subtitled "Marketed to Stoners." Its star, a little green prince, was forced to roll a giant gravity ball to atone for the sins of his father, the King of the Cosmos, who had gotten dru...
