Three years ago, a little after getting my Xbox 360, I decided to purchase the original Mass Effect Platinum Edition. I don’t consider myself to be much of a PC gamer, but I did play through all of Baldur’s Gate 1 and 2, Planescape Torment and Icewind Dale, so I had pretty high expectations. I thought Mass Effect would have a turn based feel like in Baldur’s Gate and was […]
Featured image courtesy of StevenRayBrown I’ve enjoyed Young Justice for the most part since its premiere, despite the fact that I didn’t really buy its premise at first. It made no sense to me that Batman would send a bunch of kids, half of whom have little to no experience as superheroes, into dangerous battles against major League villains like Bane and Kobra. But the crazier thing turned out to be that the […]
So typically for Halloween season, I like to play something zombie related like Left 4 Dead. I did that a little, but I also spent a nice time playing Costume Quest, a game with a Halloween theme.
I recently took advantage of a major sale on the Xbox Marketplace and purchased Outland along with some other games. For $5 Outland really delivers. It’s a fun adventure game, where you have to switch colors to overcome obstacles and defeat enemies. Think Metroid (or Castlevania) meets Ikaruga. So far I have cleared three worlds and am making my way through the forth and am really having a good time, […]
I walked through the halls of New York Comic Con in an aimless trance of nerdy delight and came upon the Table Top Gaming Section. There were scores of Magic players, Beybladers and Dungeon and Dragons Encounters (D&D) gamers. I was instinctively drawn to the D&D, because I am a big fan of Role playing, and decided to play a round. Now mind you, I have played plenty of D&D but Version 3.5 of […]
When does an artist make the transition from being an amateur to a professional? That’s a question I’ve asked myself in the past, and it still rings in the back of my head from time to time. I’m not working at a big publishing company, and I haven’t had any big gallery shows, but I’ve done alright for myself the last couple of years. Still, when a friend of mine […]
I arrived at the Jacob Javitts Center for New York Comic Thursday with a Professional Pass ready to check out the vendors. Traditionally New York Comic Con is less about the fans and more about the industry, most presentations are run by major companies such as Funimation and other publishers. Meanwhile the bulk of the event was the show room floor which hosts a variety of vendors, displays and video game demos. That first […]
For the past week I have been engrossed in The Magician King, by Lev Grossman, sequel to The Magicians. For those who don’t know about The Magicians, it stars Quentin Coldwater a young genius that is invited to Brakebills College for Magical Pedagogy… Yes, a college that teaches magic, and yes this is the “adult” version of Harry Potter and I am enjoying every word of Lev Grossman’s world.
