  • Summary: It's shocking how time moves on. In a few years I'll be hitting thirty and, as I am oft reminded, by that age my dad owned his own house and business as well as having me and all my siblings.

  • Excerpt: As long as I have reviewed games, I have yet to encounter one that engendered the responses that Populous DS garnered as I played it around my friends. To the man, each had heard great things about the Populous franchise and was interested in a new edition coming to the DS.
