Thoughts on Gaming

ArizonaOrbFeat
As I got word back in late November about the demise of the latest attempt to get a large sized gaming only convention off the ground (Vul-Con this time around) I got to thinking what it might take to lay the groundwork for creating what could eventually become a “destination” sort of convention alo…
Strat-O-Matic, Snowstorms and Syrup
I have to say Elliott, our high school friends, and I used to play the hell out of Strat-O-Matic. It didn't matter if it was baseball (my fav), football, or hockey we had loads of card sets and we'd head over to the Norridge, IL Gamer's Paradise - a local store that used to be a great source for gam…
happyholidays
As you may have heard on our latest show, Elliott and I shared some ideas for last minute gift ideas for the gamers in your life. So without further ado here's a selection of titles we feel nearly any gamer of various stripes should have on their shelf (or in their stocking)...Small Wo…
Car Wars Deluxe Edition
As reported during my interview with Andrew Hackard and Phil Reed of Steve Jackson Games, SJG is going to produce Car Wars next year. This was certainly a great thing to hear as I can say the title was one of the games Elliott, our friends, and I played quite a bit in high school. No word specifical…

ConsimWorld Expo 2012
Once again the annual ConsimWorld Expo took place in the Phoenix area and, luckily enough, I was able to travel over to check out the festivities. Organizer John Kranz did it again as, from my observations, it looked like this was the biggest Expo yet with somewhere in the vicinity of 250 attendees …
SOTM
While camping out at our media table at Origins last weekend, playing an epic game of Twilight Struggle where I was thoroughly tromped by Jeff, we were approached by a gentleman who introduced himself as Christopher Badell, the Design Director from Greater Than Games, the makers of Sentinels of the …
Phoenix Comicon 2012
Once again I thought I’d lay out a few obvious, or at least obvious to me, thoughts about how to do your best to make your convention going experiences great for yourself and others since the con season is getting into swing. For the most part, these tidbits don’t require a whole lot of thought and …
Halo 4 Multiplayer Screen
This time, rather than reviewing a game, I thought it would be cathartic to rant about some of my intense hatred for online multiplayer & MMO's. Try to understand, I am fully aware of the appeal for these options in gaming, I just fail to see why most core gamers feel the need to be such douche …
TBFeat
Ah yes, the story of Tentacle Bento… I’m sure plenty of folks already know the story behind the successful funding run Soda Pop Miniatures put together on Kickstarter only to be followed by KS cancelling the project after receiving complaints from an ad hoc write in campaign due to the subject matte…
Autoduel Quarterly 3-1-2 from Jeff's Collection
Yes, Elliott and I have talked multiple times on the show how we'd love to see this return, as we played the original microgame release and everything after, and it appears Steve Jackson Games could be on the verge of dusting off Car Wars for a 21st century audience. As a way to blast the Ogre Desig…
Wasteland2
I ran across Wasteland 2 on Kickstarter. This really is a sequel to the original Wasteland from Interplay I remember playing so long ago on my Commodore 64. Remember the classic line “Rabbit is reduced to a thin red paste”?It is coming back, and Kickstarter is here to help. Obviously, there are …
The-Customer-is-Always-Right
There's a lot going on in the video game industry right now. Multiple big budget releases, old school classic remakes in HD, teaser announcements for some really amazing franchises. Unfortunately none of that matters at the moment due to the rift that has been caused between the industry and the peo…
colinmoriarty
I think I’ll share the editorial posted two days ago by the video gaming review giant IGN’s PS3 editor, Colin Moriarty, before I move on to the bulk of my piece...Wow! Mighty interesting I’d say. In fact it’s interesting on so many levels… First, to have someone who is purportedly the editor …
GURPSConan
Those who enjoy the generic GURPS role playing system from Steve Jackson Games, and who are fans of Robert E. Howard's world famous barbarian, are sure to be thrilled with the reprinting of the classic supplement and adventures arriving all month! Although they won't see an actual print version they…
