Gamer's University – Updated More than Never!

Very recently, Blizzard dropped two big bombs on the Diablo 3 community and there’s a lot of noise about it. They are, respectively, the closure of the Auction House (both in-game gold and real money) and the announcement of the first expansion (with more to come hopefully), Reaper of Souls. These announcements have been awarded […]

[Review] Rogue Legacy

September 30th, 2013

Rogue Legacy. Rogue freaking legacy. So, let me break this down, a 2D sidescrolling platformer roguelike action RPG with randomly-generated metroidvania castles and long-term upgrade progression of your skills, equipment, and character classes– of which you get to choose a new one each time you die. It’s a mouthful, and it’s amazing. I finally finished […]

So…Blizzard has been busy lately (they always are) but three major things have happened since I last mentioned them: 1) An expansion to Diablo 3 has finally been announced (thank goodness.) 2) The World of Warcraft TCG (formerly produced by Upper Deck, then by Cryptozoic) has been discontinued. and 3) Blizzard has debuted their own […]

Greetings fellow gamers! I want to weigh in on two games that have been long overdue for a review, and I want to review them together because they share a similar theme, so let’s get right into it: EVOLAND Evoland began as an entry for LudumDare #24, and won. You can still play the original […]

Well, it happened. I fell off the wagon, thanks to my wife and her coworkers dragging me back kicking and screaming I’m back on World of Warcraft. The last time I played was in 2010 before we had our son Ethan. He’s almost 3 now and for some reason we thought it would be a […]

I’ll be the first to tell you that Excel (well, spreadsheets in general. OpenOffice.org shoutout.) is one heck of a powerful tool. I use it all the time to help organize my thoughts and run calculations and simple simulations in my boardgame design endeavors. But this…this blows my mind. Via Boingboing: Cary Walkin, an accountant […]

 StarCraft II, the Heart of the Swarm Expansion set was announced some time ago, but now finally has a concrete release date of March 12, 2013. Which is all fine and dandy because I am looking forward to this game very much and I will definitely play it… But will I buy the Collector’s edition […]

[Review] Borderlands 2

October 16th, 2012

 Long-time readers will know that I have spoken well of Borderlands the first. Twice, in fact. And looking back, it makes me wonder why I hesitated to try the sequel. In hindsight, after I wrote those review and kept playing Borderlands 1, and kept playing it like crazy, I discovered some of the weaker points […]

If you have ever wanted to know how to papercraft a few walls of your house into a Minecraft Mine…scape…thing (and who HASN’T? Am I right??) This is how you do it!   http://www.laboratory424.com/build/minecraft Isn’t it beautiful? (The lava room is for time-out, kids…)

[Review] Orcs Must Die! 2

August 6th, 2012

I don’t know why I completely failed to mention the first game, because it was absolutely amazing in every way, but Orcs Must Die! 2 is even better. If I had to classify what kind of game OMD is, it would be best described as a “Tower Defense” game, but that would still be something […]
