I need to play this game. At a tabletop, with pencils, paper, and my friends. This is what I’ve wanted from a superhero game for a long, long time. I just don’t want it on my computer. Which reminds me. The DC Universe RPG is out on pre-order. Get the book when it’s printed, plus […]

Gygax worked for Troll Lord Games and was close to several of the staffers there. They’d know well before almost anyone else. I’m considering […]

I always knew that Jonah Goldberg was a geek. It’s one of the things that I like most about him, even though I’ve never met him. Now I know he’s definitely one of us – a gaming geek. Hmmm this raises an intriguing question, What was Schwarzenegger’s best movie? This has to be rated on […]

Pure Geekish Awesomeness. When President Bush ordered troops to Iraq, he probably never imagined that he would be ultimately be responsible for what very well could be the very first D&D convention/game day ever held in a war zone. Ziggurat Con, being held June 9 from 1200 to 2100 hours at Camp Adder/Tallil Airbase, is […]
