Playing Around – Combining Traditional Slots with the Online Fantasy World

Most people enjoy gaming in one form or another. Sometimes it is games of the tabletop or RPG variety in a social setting, sometimes it is the consoles set up at home to play with family or friends, and sometimes it is games we find online. I am not just talking about connecting your console games via the internet to engage with other players, though. I am talking about games that live on the internet, ones that you just cannot find offline.  Continue reading

Special Guest Post – Survive the Horde Kickstarter

GW1-blog-guestA couple months ago (back in Issue 67), we had some Gen Con coverage that included an interview with Evan Johnson, the creator of Survive the Horde Party Game. At the time, he was giving people a tease of the game before it even hit Kickstarter. Well, the time has come and the Kickstarter is now live, so we thought we’d have Evan provide a follow up and give more details about the game.  Continue reading

Miss Dawn’s Musings – Pinball Wizard

Blog-MDMAs I’ve said before, I’m not a gamer. I can’t be bothered much with video games (I’ve played for maybe a few hours tops over the past year, including console and time at Dave and Buster’s), I don’t go out of my way to play board games (I’ll play if someone asks) and RPGs bore me after the first 15 minutes or so. But there is one kind of game that I will never pass up and actually seek out at times: pinball. Continue reading

The Gamer Geek Blog – Keeping It Real

Blog-GGHey Geeksters!

So there is no real blog this week. Between trying not to fail all my finals, the Overwatch beta popping up during finals and my own projects, I don’t have time to write anything relevant. So, in short, go download the Overwatch beta and play it until the 9th… oh, and go listen to the RWBY Vol 3, I’ve been looping it on my phone and computer for about 15 hours. I’m gonna go try to pass my finals… bye.
