Been playing a bunch of Puzzle Quest 2 on my newly aquired timesink, an iPad. Also been following Jeff Green's relentless twitter-assault on what remains of my free time. The quick look of Bejeweled 3 sold me pretty bad on that game, now tell me: HOW THE HELL DID THAT HAPPEN??? I'm not saying I'm the coolest guy around, not trying to pass my life off as some xtreme sports commercial, but man, last I looked in the mirror, at least I wasn't a stressed out/bored housewife hunched over a mouse playing Bejeweled!! It's like these damned casual game juggernauts find out exactly what scratches my itch, and then set about designing a sparkly, mind melting back scratcher of a game that sucks up ALL my waking hours. And it's so goddamned embarassing, talking to the folks at work; "yeah, so last night, I did this amazing combo in puzzle que.....err....yeah, so never mind, how about those sports, huh? Sure is snowing today!" Basically, I guess what I'm trying to say is that I enjoy simple puzzle games every bit as much as blockbuster games. I salute you, mr. Green.
