I feel like I’m going to get murdered for saying this, but the way they retired the Undertaker may have actually been perfect. The thing is that this didn’t feel like a retirement match.  It didn’t feel big, it didn’t feel special, and going in it felt like another excuse to put Roman over in […]

All Walls Must Fall is a “Tech-Noir Tactics Game” set in an alternate future where the Cold War never ended.  It’s a game with action, intrigue, and time travel that roll together into an exciting package. All Walls Must Fall promises a dark and brutal narrative where the player, and the agent under their command, […]

Alright, so I’m taking a break from writing about games to talk about something entirely different.  I’m not really a fandom sort of person, but I live with someone who has watched the entirety of Buffy the Vampire Slayer something like seven hundred times, and as a result I’ve seen the whole series about six […]

In 1994 Nintendo released Super Metroid for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and, honestly, we could have just stopped right there.  I mean, I’m glad we didn’t, but really if you got your hands on that game when it was released then you didn’t really NEED another one.  Bold statements about the industry aside, Super […]

“The Witch is Dead” is a free one-page free RPG by Grant Howitt.  Designed to be played in a single session, “The Witch is Dead” gives its players control over one of the late witches familiars and a single goal: revenge.  You see, the witch was not the wicked kind.  She was wise and benevolent […]

This year I won National Novel Writing Month for the first time, in what was my second year of participating.   My first year I washed out after about 11,000 words, and every other novel writing attempt I’ve made has died out within the first few pages (and that’s being generous).  Still, this year I cranked […]

If you follow the game industry then you’re probably at least passingly familiar with the SAG-AFTRA video game strike that’s going on.  If you’re not, though, I’ll do my best to summarize it:  SAG-AFTRA, a union of the Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, is the union that represents […]
