Revisiting the Warcraft Strategy Trilogy

These days, it's harder to find gamers who haven't played World of Warcraft than to find those that have. That's not remotely true about Blizzard's original three Warcraft games, which comprise the first ten of Wacraft's incredible twenty years on the gaming scene. They're some of the most influential PC games of all… » 2/28/15 5:48pm 14 minutes ago

Ani-TAY Presents a VN Roleplay: "You Were the Only One"

The following is a short VN style conversation that occurred within one of the many Ani-TAY Chatrooms between myself (Krakken_Unleashed) and Protonstorm (with Rockmandash12 making a small appearance).

Assassination Classroom Evening: The One That Got Away

This week's Assassination Classroom came at an opportune time, as I just discovered that the series actually had an OVA back in 2013 that adapted the same chapter in the manga.

Blip: But Do I Open Them?

I came home from shithole rural Michigan to find all this stuff in my mail pile. Obviously, I'm going to open the blind box (I have no idea what's in it!), but the other stuff... I don't know. I'm leaning towards "yes" for the Amiibos, but I'm not sure if they'll look cooler loose in my curio or hung up in the package… » 2/27/15 8:42pm Yesterday 8:42pm

Games People Hate: A Primer

Some games aren't tailored for the people who typically label themselves as "gamers". Some games are intended to be the true essence of what games should be: a diversion. This means that they don't necessarily need to be the same things that make videogames "fun" as we know them today. » 2/27/15 4:20pm Yesterday 4:20pm
