Quadrilateral Cowboy (opens in new tab) is a hack-tical heist game from Blendo Games (opens in new tab) which will release sometime this year. It calls itself "twentieth-century cyberpunk," and so far it's really hard not to get caught up in its old-tech nostalgia. Please direct your web browser to Quadrilateral Cowboy – Brendon Chung's latest game takes things back to BASIC (opens in new tab) for more (56.6k modem recommended).

In 2006, Tyler wrote his first professional review of a videogame: Super Dragon Ball Z for the PS2. He thought it was OK.
