Destroying my Iphones battery life: Game Dev Story

May 30, 2011 1 comment

So last week or so I was desperately in need of a way to procrastinate, and the internet was being surprisingly unhelpful. As a result of this, and a long series of very random thoughts and decisions that made sense at the time, I bought the first iPhone game I have bought in a long time.  Its called Game Dev story, but if like most people you looked at the picture before reading this you already figured that out.

Just a warning for you guys, this is going to be the first time this is really “poor-man’s gaming” and not “totally-free gaming”.  I will start by saying this game is €14.95, which google tells me is a little over $20.00 Canadian.

Technical Difficulties.

So recently I have been having problems with wordpress, specifically with images. This has caused my blog to grind to a hault…as you have probably noticed.

See, what happens is, when I try to put a picture in the middle of my posts, with a little comment underneith (see every post with pictures in it on my blog), it for some reason puts all the rest of my text from the post INTO the comment. If anyone can help me with this I would appreciate it.
