Evil Apples: Pure Twisted Fun!

So you want to play Cards Against Humanity but you don’t have any friends. Or more likely, because you are all delightful, you don’t want to wait for special get-togethers to play. There’s an app for that! Evil Apples isn’t officially connected to CAH, but the gameplay is pretty much the same. The best part is, […]

Apps That Don’t Suck: Game Dev Tycoon

I cleaned up during last week’s Steam sale. I walked away with several games, and I spent less than $30. I love bargains.

At Home with the Dragonborn

I thought I was pretty hip when I joined Tumblr in 2010. By this I mean I was hip in the general sense, not that joining Tumblr made me hip. I’d been a part of The X-Files community in the late ’90s, so I know about fandom. How naive. I had so much to learn! […]

A First Step Across the Plane in Magic: The Gathering

I’ve always been nerdy in that I like to read and wear glasses. But I’ve never been much for the big nerd (or geek) pursuits: I’m so-so on Tolkien and Doctor Who, I don’t care about Star Trek or Star Wars, and so on. I’ve never played “real” Dungeons and Dragons, and I only play […]

An Interview with the Creators of Choice: Texas

It has been a tumultuous year for reproductive rights in this country. Too many states have passed restrictions on abortion or attempted to defund clinics and organizations associated with women’s health issues. This has caused a crisis for women’s health advocates across the nation. They have struggled to stay afloat; despite this, they are admirably […]

Traveling the World with GeoGuessr

I don’t get sucked into online games very often, and when I do, they tend to be spectacularly nerdy. I’ve signed up for free trials of Lumosity with three different email addresses and I spent a ridiculous amount of time doing Sporcle quizzes when I was studying to go on Jeopardy!, but it’s been a […]

Made by Arkane studio and published by Bethesda software, Dishonored is an action/adventure game that takes elements from both Deus Ex and Half-life. But does it make a compelling game?

RPGs, Old School and the Inquisition

You know, sometimes you have to wonder if it’s a coincidence or if marketing departments between different companies work really hard to make certain things happen. You might be wondering what I’m talking about, well, GOG did D&D sales not long ago (aka Baldur’s Gate, Icewind Dale, Planescape Torment, NWN, etc). Right as it was […]

Gaming Medley

It’s the summer and this means that Steam and other digital retailers have sales. I’m not immune to super cheap games. So I bought a few and found the time to play some of them. Crusader King II and Saints Rows: The Third are both sequels of games I’ve never played before. Both are super awesome […]
