Puzzle Strike: Bag 'O Video Gamey Fun

The question was raised, a few podtoids ago, would you pay $60 for a new Super Puzzle Fighter II. Johnathon Holmes said absolutely. Well, Johnathon Holmes... it's time to put you money where your mouth is on this review of Puzzle Strike...

 
 
 

Rubbish Bin: Haze Part 2

Not just another pretty face... seriously, this man is sans face... Some games come out and just get hammered on reviews. Whether justified or not, time passes, hatred fades, and it becomes time to investigate the games that have been du...

 
 
 

Competition is bad, apparently.

There may be many out there, right now, wondering how I can say such a thing. Well, I haven't said it, you guys have. More particularly, you guys have been saying it this entire time about the EA Origins service. When it was announced, ...

 
 
 

Rubbish Bin: Haze Part 1

There are games that, when released, are real stinkers. Universally panned, abused, and slammed. But like Roger Ebert's stress relief reviews, some of these games really don't deserve it and some games are given a horrible reputation in ...

Bits of Legend Playtest Results + Contest Winner

A random assortment of baddies... This last Thursday, Bits of Legend made it's Play Test debut. A lot of stuff was expected to be broken and boy did Bits of Legend not disappoint in that regard. I expected the bosses to either be too ea...

Redakai: Conquer the Kairu Review + Contest Winner

Yesterday saw the national launch of a new CCG called Redakai. Flashy, Gimmicky, and expensive, how does it stack up in the market as a whole? Ultimately, it depends on the type of gamer. So sit back, relax, and read up on the latest CCG...

 
 
 

Conversion of a Board Gamer

As I finished cleaning up and making space for a third board game shelf, I had to look back. Less than two years ago, all I knew of board games was Monopoly sucked, Stratego was win, and Sorry was (and still is) among my favorite games. ...

 
 
 

PSN: It's downfall and effect on Gamers.

Last Wednesday, PSN went down. Rather, someone/s hacked Sony and Sony panicked, pulled their services, and began working around the clock to find out how bad it was. When they couldn't find out exactly, they hired a firm whom also helped ...

 
 
 

A response to True Believers

Yesterday, when I returned from my lunchtime quest for the Marvel vs Capcom 3 Special Edition, I wrote a blog post as satelitte imagery was saving out (system resources give me very little juice to do anything else). This blog post was e...

 
 
 

Congrats Capcom... you f***s...

Today, Marvel vs Capcom 3 came out. Marvel vs. Capcom 3 looks like a true successor to Marvel Vs. Capcom (aka, balanced with a consistant art quality) and not just Capcoms answer to Fighters Megamix and MK Trilogy. So I was hyped when I ...

 
 
 

Is Nintendo Really Ready To launch?

As I put down my preorder today at Gamestop, I mused out loud... is Nintendo really ready to launch this damn thing? This is not a sentiment that came about overnight. It's come from many sources and definitely not being denied by Nintend...

 
 
 

2010's Unofficial Official Neggies

2010 was an eventful year to be certain. Every website and their brothers are going to be chucking out awards and in the same fashions as every other website. We all know the games that will be plastered with reviewer spunk so those oth...

 
 
 

Resident Evil Card Game Review

One of the hottest new trends in board gaming is Deck-Building games and with companies more than willing to try getting their video game franchise in board game form, it's only natural someone would take this shot. Who would have guessed...

 
 
 

Gosu: Card Game Review

Goblins serve many purposes throughout time, whether being simple enemies to mulch in a beginning D&D campaign, deal parts from mechanical ostriches in WOW, or even dig the tunnels for other creatures to travel in Magic, Goblins rock. So...

 
 
 

Initial Impressions: Resident Evil Deck-Building Game

This Thursday, to a local gaming store near you, comes the Resident Evil Deck-Building Game.... but what is it? How does it play? Who the what and the where cares? I do. So here is a quick impression. I sat down to give the game a shot...

 
 
 

SciFantasy Art Dump

I haven't done an art dump in a while so why not show off the card game I'm currently designing? Six elements, starting now... Air Death Earth Fire Life Water

 
 
 

Gaming Unplugged 3: Perry Rhodan

As some feedback to my last review, I was tasked with doing something more obscure than a Settlers of Catan spinoff a mere three weeks old. And so hopefully this fits the bill. Perry Rhodan was a popular series of novels (starting in 196...

 
 
 

Gaming Unplugged 2: Settlers of America

If you're even remotely close to the Euro Board Game scene, you may have heard of the Settlers of Catan. How you feel about the game is entirely dependant upon your feelings on randomness and your initial startup. One of the main complai...

 
 
 

Magic: Fail of the Planeswalkers PC

As some may know, Duel of the Planewalkers came out on PC via Steam. Well, sort of. I was one of those people eagerly refreshing the storefront to plunk down some money (three days after the listing went live, you could actually preorder ...

This is an update to two different blog series I was doing. The first being the art blog that leads the bulk of this update and the second being my card game design blog. Last card game design blog update can be found here. http://www.de...

 
 
 

Back To basics Art Blog 7: Maor Gurls

What can I say? They are my weakness so I'm going to keep busting out on this aspect for a bit. Starting with some basic heads. Some of you may recognize Rachel Summers, but doubtful. Also did a couple generic 80s Cyberpunk characters. ...

 
 
 

Gathering Magic: But They Keep Pulling Me Back In!

Yesterday, I did something stupid. I went to my local gaming shop (Armored Gopher Games) and joined their Friday Night Magic event. For $25, players got 2 boosters packs of Worldwake, Rise of the Eldrazi, and Zendakir. From there, you h...

 
 
 

Back to Basics Art Blog 6: Moar Female Practice

I suppose I should start things off more conventionally ugly. These are a couple quick character designs for a board game concept. Then we go into the first page of females this week. God I suck... but here are some more. And a specia...

 
 
 
 

Section 8 Quick Impressions

Tuesday I alerted fellow DToiders that Section 8, a highly Tribes looking game, was on sale for $14.99 on PSN. Perhaps motivated by the potential for fellow dtoids to orbital drop on, I purchased and decided to play some while it was still...

 
 
 
 

Back to Basics Art Blog 4: Conventional Delays

Last weekend I went to the Geekway to the West board gaming convention in St. Louis. Because of this, I didn't get as much time over the weekend drawing. In fact, if you caught me between games, you might have seen me drawing one of the t...

 
 

About sheppyone of us since 7:01 AM on 09.16.2008

I suppose since one of my stories has been promoted, I'm on the spot to get off my lazy ass and describe myself. I'm a 3D modeler working on Flight Simulators by day, a doodlin nerd by night. I try to remain without system biases but let's face it, no one can do that. I do want to apologize for some of my terrible grammar. I'm hoping to correct this issue as time goes on. I want to get better.

As to which games games I'm into, which ones am I not into is a more apt question. I'm a collector with a fairly massive collection. And, maybe as time rolls on, I'll fill more of this out.
