Gaming geek creates back to high school experience with SCHOOL DAZE

When I was in high school, I would play Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) with my friends. We’d get together during study period or after class, and transport ourselves to exotic, far-off lands full of magic and adventure, all via the power of our imaginations and a set of dice. It’s been a while since I’ve… Continue reading ‘Gaming geek creates back to high school experience with SCHOOL DAZE’

Level Caps Killing Your Game? – Written by Sean “Blazek” Emes, Edited by Jordan “Doomhammer” Kahn The Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) industry has been in a pretty sad state over the last seven years.

The Muppets play The Hunger Games!

Does this whet your appetite for more… Continue reading ‘The Muppets play The Hunger Games!’



Star Wars: The Musical returns to Chicago!

There once was a time when I thought that no good could come of making a musical out of Star Wars. I mean, considering that the first time I’d ever seen something of the sort done, it was in the Star Wars Holiday Special and Carrie Fisher sang the “Life Day Song.” Oy.

Answering the homophobes against “Life with Archie”

I’m sorry, I try to be tolerant, I really do, but sometimes the ignorant and hateful make it too easy to mock them.

Sonic brings “Justice League” in tot form!

Ever since a Sonic Drive-In opened near my house, it’s been all I could do to resist eating there almost every week.

Comic book geeks are now going to have the additional temptation… Continue reading ‘Sonic brings “Justice League” in tot form!’



Second “Avengers” Trailer hits the Internet!

On May 4th, the culmination of 2 years of Marvel movies will be realized with the release of “The Avengers.” (Technically it’s called “Marvel’s The Avengers” – and is even titled “Avengers Assembled” in the UK, which all sounds like some silly branding issues.)
