Magic the Gathering: Building Your Deck

All right, so it’s been awhile. Blame Japanese RPGs, medieval women, Aztec sacrifice, and late Geometric authors. Seriously. Before I get into the real point of this post I first want to point out where I’m at in Magic:...

Madden '09 may not be that awesome

I just picked up the game an hour or so ago and after pouring through the rosters for a bit, I decided to start up a new franchise.

Remember in my impressions piece when I mentioned that the DBs still look like they're in leather-seeking mode? Totally. Eight interceptions. Christ.

RPG Dress in the Next Generation is Still Deplorable

One of the premier unwritten rules or laws of the RPG genre seems to be so ingrained in developers and artists that we will never see a change. Fresh out of last generation, I was heatedly looking forward to the new consol...

Flamethrower Confirmed for Call of Duty: World at War
