For the first time since 2019, the America’s Center was filled with nerd life. After acquiring Wizard World last year, Fan Expo brought a great show to downtown Saint Louis. The entry procedures were easy, the floor was well organized, and the programming rivaled some of the best cons I’ve been to. The guest list […]

C2E2 2021: A Weekend In Review

Posted: December 16, 2021 at 10:08 am   /   Convention Reviews

As I’ve stated before, C2E2 holds a special place among conventions for me. Not only was it my first con outside of Saint Louis, but it’s where I met so many of my wonderfully nerdy friends. Since I started this journey back in 2017, I’ve only missed C2E2 once and it gave me massive regrets. […]

PAX South 2020: Meet the*gameHERS, A Community For Women Gamers

Posted: February 1, 2020 at 11:42 am   /   Convention Reviews, Videogame Reviews, Videogames

When I first got an email from the*gameHERS about an interview at PAX South, I was a bit confused. I had to wonder why an all-female gaming group would want me to interview them. The usual assumptions crossed my mind. Could it have been an email blast to the media list? Could they have thought […]

PAX South: THE ARCADE CREW – YOUNG SOULS & KUNAI

Posted: January 30, 2020 at 4:40 pm   /   Videogame Reviews

While I love huge epic games with realistic graphics, I’ve always had a soft spot for simple adventure and platformer games. Being born in the late 80’s, I was exposed to all of the first gaming systems on the market. My first console was a Sega Genesis, where I was hooked on games like Sonic […]

Posted: January 30, 2020 at 4:32 pm   /   Videogame Reviews

Everspace 2 is another game that got me really excited for PAX South. The first Everspace slipped past me when it was released, but I am so happy that I discovered and tested the sequel. I’ve always been a fan of sci-fi and starship combat games, and Everspace 2 hit ALL the right buttons. This […]

Posted: January 30, 2020 at 4:22 pm   /   Videogame Reviews

The second game we played at the 3D Realms booth was Wrath: Aeon of Ruin, by KillPixel Games. I originally hadn’t planned on testing this out, but I kept catching myself mesmerized by gamers blasting through waves of undead monstrosities. Wrath is a dark-fantasy horror FPS that lives in the same vein as Doom and […]

Posted: January 28, 2020 at 9:07 am   /   Videogame Reviews

Let me start by saying Ghostrunner is an extreme exercise in patience and strategy. This cyberpunk parkour game is a test of wits and will, all wrapped up in a beautiful sci-fi package. From the combination of One More Level Games, All In! Games, and 3D Realms, this game made a huge impact on the […]

PAX South 2020: OBEY ME Hands-On Review

Posted: January 28, 2020 at 8:50 am   /   Videogame Reviews

Developed by Error 404 Game Studios and published by Blowfish Studios, Obey Me is labeled a cooperative “holy-punk brawler”. From the description and trailer, it seemed like a stylish modern version of Diablo. Being a huge fan of Diablo III and the quasi-religious setting in general, I was quick to add this to my list […]
