My generation was the first to have video games in our lives. We were the first to marvel at the pixels jumping around on our screens. We had Space Invaders, Pac-Man, and mall arcades as far as the eye could see. We consumed as much as we possibly could with the money earned from either… Read More »

So, The Married Gamers website has yet to weigh in with any kind of statement on Gamergate, the grassroots movement that describes itself as being intensely concerned with ethics in game journalism and fixing corruption in the industry. That so happens to have harassed, defamed, and threatened a handful of women associated with video games… Read More »

Board Game Review: Titan Tactics

I love tabletop gaming. I love the strategy, understanding models and characters stats, and trying to solve the never-ending  puzzle that is your opponent’s tactics. The biggest problem often with those games? Dice rolls. The element of dice and the randomness and chance can offset a lot of players from getting into a game. “There… Read More »

After last year’s Call of Duty: Ghosts, it was starting to look like the bloom was off the rose for the much loved franchise. Despite its continued popularity, COD: Ghosts delivered an anemic story coupled with the familiar multiplayer that offered very little in way of excitement. When Activision announced Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare,… Read More »

While Destiny may be the most contentious title this year (and maybe this generation), one thing is universal: its music and compositions in the game are simply fantastic.  With Marty O’Donnell’s signature touch felt throughout the game’s soundtrack, Destiny has lush soundscapes when traversing various planets, and upbeat electronic tracks when the action really gets going.

So it should come as little surprise that the newest installment, Skylanders Trap Team, should arrive in time for the holidays. Past entries in the series were great examples… Read More »
