Torchlight 2 shows us all how it’s done.

The original Torchlight is the game that I point to as being influential in my leaving the world of MMORPG playing where I hadn’t actually had much fun for years. So I’m sure you could imagine that I had the […]


Avatar: The Last Airbender

Why do you watch television?  If you’re like most people it’s because you enjoy it when oddly orange tinted people poke you in the eyes with their abject terribleness.  Or possibly because you like the commercials.  For myself, I like […]


InSpectres: A Peek into “Ghost Adventures” Table Top

Having hosted a few successful evenings of Fiasco (the perfectly palatable link between “traditional gaming” and “touchy-feel-y story gaming”) I’ve been looking for more out-of-the-box games to test on my group. If Mouse Guard and Og taught me anything, it’s that […]


The Felix Castor Series

Initially, to open this article, I had a long and freewheeling description of the evolution of the Hellblazer comic series, its lead character John Constantine, and the process that led to the books that this review is about. It was […]


Borderlands 2 uncovers more hidden treasure on Pandora.

Update 9/26/12: It seems that a lot of people are coming here to find secret things hidden in Borderlands 2. This is my review / opinions of the game. For a rundown of in-game secrets check out this Kotaku article. […]


Romancing the Monkey Man: Og Unearthed Edition

This past Friday my friends and I gathered around a table for some serious roleplay. We got our character sheets out, our dice out, pulled up chairs, and immediately started grunting, flailing, and romancing. I ran a one-shot of one […]


Gentlemen of the Road

Due to time constraints, Reuben was unable to acquire and read a copy of Mockingbird before print time, so today’s review is something from the back catalog instead. Michael Chabon ought to be a quiet hero to dorks everywhere. He […]


Sevencore presents alternative to traditional MMORPG conventions

Saddle up your giant riding spider because Sevencore entered its open beta test phase last week.  I thought this would be a fine time to take a look at the game and how it’s shaping up. Since I covered the […]


Go Daddy insists that outage was not a hack.

According to a press release earlier today, Go Daddy denies that the massive outage yesterday is the result of a hacker or DDoS attack. “The service outage was not caused by external influences. It was not a “hack” and it […]


Dungeon Command at PAX 2012

I didn’t play as many board games this year at PAX when compared to previous years; the expo floor exuded a surprising gravity. The one board game I did get my mitts on was Dungeon Command from Wizards of the […]



    I’ve never had to hitchhike, myself; I’m boring that way. Lucky, too, because I wouldn’t really enjoy it. No internet, for one, and hair care on the road is a bitch and a half. But there’s a weird […]


PAX Prime 2012 impressions

At 6:00 on Sunday evening, PAX Prime 2012 came to an end and I began the simultaneous process of breathing a sigh of relief that I could sleep in the next morning and counting down the days until PAX Prime […]


Dungeons & Dioramas: Card Hunter at PAX 2012

I’m not going to make a dedicated “post PAX 2012 review,” since I believe Mr. Spurr is going to be covering most of the titles that I was excited about. However, I mentally called dibs on writing about Blue Manchu’s Card […]
