November’s gamer lady of the month.

I know we skipped a few months but rather than claiming ‘better late than never’ I’d prefer to say the wait was well worth it.  I told you a couple weeks ago that I had tried to get an interview with Felicia Day for this feature, but she is very busy.  That’s understandable, and we … [Read more…]

Late to the Party Reviews: A Million Suns

A Million Suns is the second book in Beth Revis’ YA series, and I finished it a couple of weeks ago.  As usual, I am reviewing things long after they are normally done (hence the title), but I think it’s good.  This way all the hooplah is over and maybe a few people will see … [Read more…]

Update: Gamer Lady of the Month

I know I’ve been behind on this.  I’ve run out of gamer ladies that I know, and have been valiantly questing (well really just emailing) to get a feature with our first Gamer Lady, Felicia Day.  Unfortunately the quest has met with a minor setback, but also returned with a reward.  Miss Day is busy, … [Read more…]

Guild Wars 2 Stories: Links to the past 1

[This is a fiction sort of tale, told from the first person perspective of one of my GW2 characters.  I thought it would be fun to go back and take screenshot of the first game, and show how those same spots look now.  That led to the idea of telling it through the words of … [Read more…]

Alpha and Beta readers, indespensible people to a writer

I’ve been slacking here, but I promise it’s for a good reason.  This month is a busy one for me as a writer, outside of this modest publication.  I am nearly done with my second short story that is going to be submitted to the Writer’s Digest fantasy and science fiction story contest, due by … [Read more…]

Classic Games we Love: Prince of Persia

That’s right ladies and gents, I don’t mean the new, shiny, 3D version of Prince of Persia that all the kids are playing these days (or were playing <.<).  I’m talking the old-school, 2D, infuriating and adicting side-scroller that was orginally developed for the Apple II by Brøderbund. Originally created by Jordan Mechner, this fantasy … [Read more…]

Guild Wars 2 Guild: The Darksong Knights

Shameless plug time!  Yes, I’m here to talk about the Guild Wars 2 guild that myself and a few others have started.  About a year ago I started work on a Neverwinter Nights 2 server with some friends, and shortly after I knew I was going to want a Guild Wars 2 guild that paid homage … [Read more…]

Beer pairings for your favorite game types

I realized, here at Frags and Beer, we’ve gone nearly an entire year without a post about beer!  I think I’ve mentioned beer, but not a single post that was focused on that great gift of the Gods, that sweet nectar poured down upon man by celestial angels above.  I figured it was time to … [Read more…]

Late to the Party Reviews: The Walking Dead

I guess this isn’t really a late review, since the third season is coming out in a couple of weeks, but this is my first review of a show that is starting the third season in a couple of weeks so in a way it is a little late.  We just caught up on the … [Read more…]
