C2E2, the new great comic convention in Chicago

This past weekend Julie and I made our yearly trek to Chicago for a comic book convention.  In years past we had always gone to Wizard World/Comic Con, but the last couple of years we’ve been less-than impressed with the August con.  Last year we decided to try out C2E2 which is earlier in the … [Read more…]

Come to the dark side, we have…new PCs?

Ok, so I’ve been looking forward to Guild Wars 2 for a couple years now, like any other Guild Wars fan and anyone that has been introduced to the game afterward.  Even my wife, who has not really been too much into games and never into tabletop RPGs, said some oh so sweet words to … [Read more…]

January’s gamer lady of the month

First, an update on yesterday’s post.  When I let the guys at DA know that I would be writing about my experience, and give them the opportunity to discuss it, I of course got flamed right away on their forums.  It’s what I expected, and why I haven’t gone there to post anything.  I prefer … [Read more…]

PSA, Avoid Digital Anarchy
