MUST BUY: Kleen Kanteen Insulated Coffee Mug

klean2As a freelance word-slinger, I am what you might call a VORACIOUS consumer of coffee. I make it in a French press, take it black, and drink it throughout the workday.

This top-down zombie shooter has some real charm (and giant exploding zombies that spew filthy nasty everywhere). Sure, it seems like it riffs off Left 4 Dead a little too much in the zombie department, but it’s damn fun to cut the head off a dozen zombies in one fell swoop with the hot sexy bladezooka. Or whatever the hell it’s called. That what I call it. Hot and sexy. So yeah, here’s my full review over at GamesRadar if you feel like getting the full skinny.

“There’s nothing like waking up after being unceremoniously dumped into a heap of scrap only to find your head and limbs have gone missing amidst the filthy debris. Making a crummy situation worse, mechanical hooligans have strapped a large, makeshift bomb to the central tower in the looming industrial city you were just booted from, and your shiny lady friend is nowhere to be found. Being a little droid in a gritty robot world is tough business, but it’s worth pushing through the many seemingly insurmountable obstacles you’ll face in order to get to the heart of what makes Machinarium tick.”
