“He grabbed my breast and this is how I felt…” So on a seemingly random Sunday I had volunteered to help out with a zombie versus survivor game to aid a local theatrical troupe. I ,of course, needed to campify my existence because I was actually in a personally bad mood that day. So I did the only thing I could and dressed up in a nightie with an old lady hat and a 36DD bra and became grandma zombie for the expo. My campiness was either accepted with an “oh you” or a “why?” but regardless of any reaction,...Read More

Having been invited to the alpha version of the game without an embargo on information, it is with utmost importance that I write a review of Defense of the Ancients (DotA).

The art at its core and totality is the standard superhero artwork you would see of today, which isn’t meant to be demeaning, but informative. The protagonist in the story reminded me of a Peter Parker type young man who was thrown into a...Read More
While playing an app game (Republique) that I will review later, I found an easter egg in the game from one of the designers that spoke of a magical game that made him feel like app games could be more than candy frantic puzzles with subpar art. This game had it all – something made for serious adults. Professions, martial fighting, constant teeth-grinding action, and best of all the female character is FULLY armored in steel, no cleavage – just compounded plate. About Isa, the Female Protagonist Isa, the female assassin of sorts, does not seduce her foes via her feminine...Read More
