It’s been said that being at a Magic the Gathering Grand Prix is very much like attending an anime or comic book convention, and I find that Day Two of this event is not different. After having sold some of my extra cards for $15 and signing up for another “small” draft, walking around the […]

You Had to Be There: Grand Prix Minneapolis 2016 Day One

Shortly after sitting down outside the convention center to set up this blog entry, I turned around to see a friend whom I had first met at my very first Friday Night Magic event way back during the end of the Return to Ravnica block. He gave me a huge hug, and then proceeded to […]

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 […]

Why Kickstarter Rocks!

Kickstarter is a way to get projects funded, any project at all. All you have to do is set a goal say $5,000…$10,000…$50,000…$1,000,000…etc. (you get the picture) and anyone on the interwebs can fund your project.

Geekly Speaking About… “Girl with a Heart Of”

In the ongoing debate on whether or not video games can be art, one of the lynchpins is that art is supposed to have or reflect a statement about the world, pose questions about it, and elicit reactions to it. There are major releases like Heavy Rain which embody this type of marriage between video […]

Geekly Speaking About… “The Commander Shepard Challenge”

If you’ve been listening to our “Geekly Speaking About…” podcasts, you’ve probably heard co-editor Jillian Pullara and me talking about Commander Shepard from the Mass Effect series of games from Bioware.

So, the Tokyo Game Show happened this week…

What I got from this event is that I have more of the same to look forward to. Absolutely nothing stands out to me as interesting or original. Just more of the same…

Strippable Cover Review: Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

Ready Player One Written by Ernest Cline Published by Crown I was a child of the mid 80s, so I was a bit too young for some of the milestones. Still, I remember seeing the familiar barbarian facing a dragon box art of Dungeons and Dragons on the back of my comics, the ratty covers […]
