Solve Unamusement has been closed, but that does not mean you can't still find random amusements or keep in touch with the former author of this blog.

Everything shall be on the author's deviantART journal and there is a feed to go with it.

On Live

Talk about On Live for a quick post.

Personally, I'm debating the total value of the service. Granted you don't need a high powered PC to play the "newest releases" but you do need a bit more cash than they imply. A monthly service AND the price for paying for the individual games. A good start, On Live, but unless we're talking in the $10 mark for new titles with a monthly payment of $5, I'll stick to waiting six years and buying old games.

If the thing is cheaper than it seems to be than maybe it is worth a look. Solve Unamusement is all about cheap and/or free amusements but, right now, On Live is a difficult horse to sallow. Beta testing for those involved (not this writer) so anyone with thoughts are free to add them regardless.

5 Days a Stranger

Adventure games are fun and easy ways (provided you've a walk through) to pad a Backloggery score. Or they are interesting story telling events with minimal player involvment beyond using your brain and wasting time. Two Solve Unamusement favorites!

From the dude who brought you Zero Punctuation (Another Solve Unamusement favorite for the gamer who's bored of playing games but still wants to waste time) here comes Five Days a Stranger. A great, but short, story about a muder mystery and occult followings.

Other work from, Fully Ramblomatic if you are interested and a walk through of 5 Days a Stranger if you are like me and suck at point and click adventure games.

There you have it. Now have fun and go away while I, personally, go watch a bunch of Zero Puncuation and avoid my PS2.
