David Dreger/Knuckles Dawson

About a month ago, some of you may have noticed that I made a post asking you to spread the word that David Dreger (also known to some as KnucklesDawson) had gone missing. I wish I had better news for anyone who has followed this, but last night his sister updated the community: We are […]

Save the Dates: June 21-24 2013: ConTessa

Hey all, Jill here. And this is awesome: ConTessa is an fully online, fully free, gaming convention. Another neat aspect: It is run entirely by women; the panels and games and events are all hosted by people who self-identify as ‘she’.

URGENT!

Dear GoA friends, fans, family, community:   I didn’t know this guy personally, but I remember way back in the day before Achievement Hunter was a thing, the backlash he would get for posting the achievement guides because the RoosterTeeth community had no idea who he was, or why he got to be on the main page and […]

TV Alert: Ridley Scott- ‘Prophets of Science Fiction’

Usually, I don’t pay much attention to my inbox – I look for names I recognize, and pretty much ignore the rest; writing for a website has put my email on many press release lists, and while many of the releases I get spark my interest, I usually decline to look further into them, either […]

Supreme Court FTW

There you have it folks. Video games are protected under the First Amendment the way books, plays, and movies are. Not to read too much into this, but essentially the Supreme Court has said that video games can be art, the same way books, plays, and movies can be. But maybe that is reading too […]

Let’s Demo! Hector: Badge of Carnage

Some of you may know my hard-on for Tell Tale Games: they are, in no small part, responsible for the resurgence of adventure games, and their recent announcement that they have the rights to make a new King’s Quest game was one of the few things that have made me squeal with delight.

Back of the Box: Castle Ravenloft

What do you get when you remove the role playing from D&D 4th edition, and include a nifty exploration mechanic, and set it in one of the coolest settings in all of D&D-dom? You get  the newest board game from Wizards of the Coast. Should You Buy This Game?
