Billy White, GiN Staff

Billy White Billy White writes the weekly Time Waster review for GiN. As you might expect, this makes him the embodiment of procrastination at GiN, which works out perfectly since his job is to find fun ways to waste time. Billy came up with the idea behind GiN's Weekly Time Waster when he realized that a lot of great but smaller games don't get the attention they deserve. It helps that he spends a lot of his free time spelunking the Internet for the best browser based games. When not "wasting time" Billy likes to delve into the world of RPG's, and it doesn't matter what type of RPG it is. From Elder Scrolls to Final Fantasy and all the way to tabletop RPG's, Billy loves them all. To go along with this, he loudly proclaims to anyone who will listen that Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross are the two best games to ever exist and hopes that one day his write-in campaign will convince Square Enix to revisit the series.

Climbing Out of the Abyss

Welcome Time Wasters! I was into yet another deep game this week with Abyss (Deep game. Abyss. Chasm. Yeah, I’m not as funny as I think I am.), a browser-based game that puts players in the role of a bird in a volcano. There’s not much in the way of story to Abyss. A small opening cutscene shows several birds sitting around an open hole in the ground and one of them jumping in. It’s not established why the birds jumped into the hole, but it turns out to be a volcano. It would be way too easy to just fly […]

The miner chief enlists the help of the warrior to figure out what is going on in the mines and put it right. Chasm is a […]

Mixing It Up in Cannon Brawl

Welcome Time Wasters! Can I just start this off by saying we live in a unique time as gamers. The indie scene has blown up over the last few years and it’s great to see developers getting their games released without publishers. We’re also seeing developers takes genres we know and love and mix them together to create new, interesting titles. This includes games like Destiny, League of Legend and Cannon Brawl. Just in case the title of this article didn’t make it obvious, Cannon Brawl is the game I spent my time with this week. It was just released on Steam […]

Killing the HYDRA!

Welcome Time Wasters! This week my search for a time waster lead me around the internet until I discovered a neat little game called HYDRA. HYDRA is a hack-n-slash game viewed from the side that pits the players against a deadly hydra. There isn’t really a story as to why the player has to fight the hydra, it’s just there and needs to be killed. The only problem is that it can’t be. HYDRA is a high-score game that challenges players to cut off as many heads of the hydra as they can. Each head destroyed counts as a single […]
