If you aren’t familiar with Tommy Wiseau and enjoy hilariously bad films, stop right now and go find his amazingly poor film The Room.  You won’t regret it, even though it is the worst thing you will ever see.  Yes, it’s that bad/good. According to the Huffington Post writer/director/actor Tommy Wiseau is going to be…

Dragon Quest X, the newest sequel in the long-running RPG series, is going to be an online game.  Unlike it’s blockbuster older brother IX, which could be played online or single player, X will be all all online.  In fact, only a few hours are available for single player play.  Couple that with it’s platform,…

Y’all know I don’t really care for Monopoly. But I can’t resist whenever board games and video games intersect, like in this custom Fallout themed Monopoly game that Deviant Art user PinkAxolotl made for her boyfriend (she’s a keeper, dude!). Complete with grungy post-apocalyptic graphics and Nukem! Cola caps in place of money, this almost makes me…

Gamestop recently decided to open up every new copy of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, remove a coupon to play the game for free using PC streaming service OnLive, and then sell the game to you as if it were brand new. They then offered up a trite, completely unsatisfactory explanation on their Facebook page. People…

UPDATE: We now have the Top 10 Facebook responses to Gamestop’s coupon stealing. Gamestop regularly makes Satan look good. Just walking into one of their stores to be assaulted by the aggressive staff, intent on shoving magazines and pre-played games and pre-orders for Modern Warfare 18 down your throat, is enough to make me wish…

Yesterday was a great day – the 20th anniversary of the Super Nintendo.  The 16-bit behemoth dominated the ’90s, only being touched by the (also awesome) Sega Genesis.  The SNES still houses some of the greatest games of all time, and it’s best games have art that is still unrivaled today. The Super Nintendo, like…

When trawling through the Good Book for game ideas, developers have typically chosen the absolute worst options available to them. Case in point, Bible Adventures, where the player must carry baby Moses to the end of the level. Booooooooring. I had this game as a child, undoubtedly because my parents thought that as long as…

El Shaddai is an upcoming PS3/360 game based entirely upon the Amy Grant hit “El Shaddai.”  Apparently it is a really sweet rhythm game where you play along to different versions of the song on plastic video game guitars, drums, pianos, and ukuleles (the ukulele is huge right now y’all). Alright, alright, that isn’t really…

Welcome to my weekly column designed to convert you, the board game heathen, into full-fledged converts in the Church of Cardboard (or Cult, which is probably more apropos). The first game on the list: Settlers of Catan. Settlers was designed by Klaus Teuber way back in 1995 and is the one European game you may actually…

This past January, Tom Vasel, a game-reviewing work horse in the board game world, lost his infant son, Jack, who was born two weeks premature. There was an overwhelming wave of support for him – emotional, spiritual, and financial – from the board game community, and Tom was deeply moved to start a memorial fund…
