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 […]

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.

Trisha’s Quote of the Day: PlayStation’s latest “game” gets rave reviews

The [Firmware] game features a robust moral choice system, where your actions really do affect the world. Do you accept the User Agreement, or don’t you? This was an agonizing decision, since you never know what could happen later. I remember that unbelievable moment in Firmware 2.0, where I accepted the User Agreement and the […]

My Weekend with the 3DS

Two things I’ve learned: I am really, really awful at Super Street Fighter IV and the 3DS is, overall, pretty damn awesome. I picked the system up on Friday on a bit of a whim. A local store had pre-orders that hadn’t been picked up in proper time, so I stopped by and snagged one […]

This is How I Roll: Vampire: The Masquerade

I was thinking of a Halloween appropriate RPG to review, something to embody all the macabre of the season. To me, the first thing that came to mind was the World of Darkness setting. From its inception, WoD has captured the dark, angst ridden, heroin chic culture of the 90s. And nothing exemplifies 90’s zeitgeist […]
