• [Throwback Thursday] Looking Back at 10 Years of Bioshock

    In the video gaming zeitgeist, Bioshock really needs no introduction. It's hard to argue nowadays that Ken Levine is one of the greatest gaming auteurs of our time. Yet in the summer of 2007, nobody could have anticipated Irrational Games' return to form since System Shock 2. Despite being released the same year as Halo 3,…

  • A First-Time Con-Goer’s Experience at PAX Australia 2017

    Gaming has been a part of my life since I gained consciousness. One of my earliest memories involved early afternoons of nothing but Bomberman on an SNES I begged my parents for. Despite my love for gaming, I have never involved myself with conventions and events until recently. Upon the invitation of a dear friend (who I met…

  • GGG attends Ragnarok: Journey’s Grand Party

    10 years ago, “Ragnarok Online” captured the hearts and minds of thousands of kids who hung out in computer shops while blaring quality OPM. The MMORPG pretty much introduced an entire generation to the wonders of online gaming. And for years it became one of the pioneering computer games in the Philippines. Fast forward to…

    5 Fire Emblem: Awakening Strategies Based on The Art of War

    “War Is founded On deception; Movement is determined By advantage; Division and unity Are its elements Of Change.”   You best believe nothing can make me feel like a queen militant more than a Fire Emblem playthrough.

    Japanese Horror Manga for this Halloween

    There’s something about Asian horror – the Japanese kind in particular – that makes them superior over their Western counterpart. It goes beyond slash and gore. Japanese horror is more cerebral and disturbs one’s primal instincts. Movies such as Ringu and Dark Water have become cult classics with huge followings. So much so that Hollywood decided to do…

When Did Tabletop Come Back?

tabletop

< p style="text-align: left;"> I think most people can consider themselves lucky, if they can count on more than one hand the tabletop groups they ran across in their adulthood.

NatGeo’s Mars finds us a new home

With depressing news from that week in November that we wish we could strike from history, it seems terribly apt to want to punch the eject button from Earth and live on another planet.
