Game Review: Futurama: Game Of Drones

Sometime last year it was announced that a Futurama mobile game was on the way.  Being a huge fan of Futurama, I was very excited about this. While I had never personally played The Simpsons: Tapped Out, I had seen it in action, and was very interested in playing a Futurama game


Cards Against Humanity: Eight Sensible Gifts For Hanukkah: Nights 1 – 3

It’s that time of year again, and Cards Against Humanity is back with another (according to them, the last they are doing) gift program.  This year we get the Eight Sensible Gifts For Hanukkah.  Being born and raised Jewish myself, I can confirm that CAH went all out with every stereotypical Jewish humor


I Took The Rocksmith 60 Day Challenge

Note: There are two versions of Rocksmith. There is the original Rocksmith and Rocksmith 2014. I play the newer Rocksmith 2014, but will just be referring to it as Rocksmith in this post because Ubisoft has said it’s a replacement not a sequel. Oh and while I’m making a note. I bought


Indie Game Alliance: Empowering Creators

My favorite part of Gen Con isn’t the games. It isn’t feeding off the energy of the crowd. It isn’t all the cool stuff available in the expo hall. It’s seeing the small independent game companies trying to make a name for themselves. It’s not that I don’t love big name games.


Book Review: Koji Kondo’s Super Mario Bros. Soundtrack by Andrew Schartmann

The music featured in video games is something I think most of us take for granted. Sure, as time goes on and soundtracks have gotten more epic we’ve started to pay attention. Afterall, Portal wouldn’t be Portal without Still Alive. But for the most part, we don’t recognize how important music is to a


10 Days Or Whatever Of Kwanzaa: Day ‘Or Whatever’

Well, this was certainly unexpected.  I received another gift in the mail from Cards Against Humanity on Saturday.  I thought maybe I counted wrong, and this was the 10th gift they sent, but after double-checking, this is definitely the 11th gift from them, which I am deeming the “Or Whatever” gift. I’ve


10 Days Or Whatever Of Kwanzaa Days 8-10

My final three gifts have arrived, and here is the breakdown you are looking for! Day 9 Gift (arrived 12-18-14) Day 8 Gift (arrived 12-20-14) Day 10 Gift (arrived 12-22-14)   And thus ends another quality holiday season from Cards Against Humanity.  I’ve laughed, I’ve cried, I’ve become a landowner!  Is there anything more


10 Days Or Whatever Of Kwanzaa Days 4-7

It’s been a week, since my original post about 10 Days Or Whatever Of Kwanzaa, and I have received 4 more gifts, taking me up to day 7.  It’s interesting considering that only has up to day 5 posted.  Without further ado, here are the contents of these packages: Day 5: The Ghost


Review: Tyranny of Dragons

I don’t know what you guys do on your Friday nights, but here in Awesometown, we play games. We’re not picky on the type of games- board, video, tabletop, reindeer. (Especially reindeer.) Right now we’re at the beginning of a new Dungeons and Dragons campaign and I couldn’t be more excited. Buddy


Cards Against Humanity: 10 Days Or Whatever Of Kwanzaa

Holiday season is here, and Cards Against Humanity is in full spirit again, this year offering 10 Days Or Whatever Of Kwanzaa!  For the slightly more expensive price than last year of $15 (vs $12 last year), I will once again be getting numerous gifts in the mail throughout the month of
