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: The Gathering....

 
 
 

Magic: Two-player Starter Game

My last Magic article talked about how much a young person can learn from Magic: the Gathering. Someone who commented on that article talked about something that Wizards of the Coast is considering right now - the person that wants to p...

 
 
 

Magic: Almost getting schooled by a girl

There’s something great about Magic, and it isn’t talked about that much. Last week, I had the opportunity to play against my friend’s niece. She’s a 7th grader and is really into the game. I didn’t know that she played until a ...

Madden '09 hasn't been that awesome

This is the last little update I'll do before I review the game, but after five additional games with the Madden IQ system, I have to deduce that it's broken. My IQ, which started above 600, is now a very steamy 477. The last game I played...

 
 
 

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. Unfortunately, it's the third quarter of my first game and I've already thrown EIGHT interceptions. Remember...

Disgaea 3 Gets a Release Date and Price

EA and Maxis Hate Mac Gamers

I used to run a column on my website called “This Week in Mac RPG Gaming.” It was a satiric column, designed to point out the inadequacy of Macintosh RPG titles and an excuse to write about whatever. Over the period that I ran the c...
