NYCC: Renegade Accordion is amazing

Sitting a stone's throw away [who says that anymore?] from New York Comic-Con entrance is a guy that I'd definitely hire for any party or event in New York. Meet Renegade Accordion, a fantastic accordion player that has a seemingly endless...

NYCC: Chewbacca and his clone get down to some Jackson

Sometimes things happen at cons. This is one of those things. For various reasons I couldn't attend NYCC this year and it makes me very sad, especially since the gaming section has been growing every year previous that I have attended. As y...

NYCC: Nick Chester sucks at Gran Turismo 5

Nick is the Editor-in-Chief of one of the largest gaming news outlets out there, so this kind of suckage is inexcusable. Laughable. He's one of those guys that only knows how to mash down on the gas pedal button. I can't believe he runs ...
