A Nerd's Love Letter to Eberron
Dungeons and Dragons is a longtime hobby and love of mine. I was introduced to the game in my last year of high school and instantly fell into running games for my friends, which I continued to do on a regular basis for the next 17 years. Over the years I’ve played in a number of different settings and systems, each with their own quirks and charms. I ran my players through classic dungeon delves, grand swashbuckling adventures, grimdark military campaigns, cyberpunk dystopias, intergalactic intrigue, and zombie apocalypses. Out of all of the settings I’ve played in, there is one that I keep coming back to however; one world that has stood out and captured my imagination like no other, Eberron.
"I Choose You"
Anybody who knows me in real life knows one of my all-time favorite fantasy settings is the world of Pokemon. I've been in love with the series since the original Pokemon games of Red and Blue and the anime, way back when I was a little kid. I think I originally got the Blue version while my older brother got Red, but I later got Yellow. Then, for the second generation, I'm absolutely sure I got all three of Gold, Silver, and Crystal. The third generation was when I got Sapphire, and the fourth generation I got Platinum. For the fifth-generation games, I chose the White Versions for both the first game and the sequel, mainly because I thought Zekrom was cooler. In the sixth generation, I went with the Y version. The Sun version was my generation seven game. Finally, for generation 8 of a now twenty-five-year-old franchise, I chose Shield.
Immersive Fandoms Reign Supreme
When I thought about what the best fantasy world could be, my brain ran through several options as fantasy is my absolute favorite thing. So many books and movies came up as potential subjects until I sat down at my writing desk. I then realized that I had focused too hard on those two things while forgetting one important entertainment genre that contains plenty of fantasy: video games.

Sony's Playstation showcase took place this week, and whilst the announcement of a Knights of the Old Republic remake for Playstation 5 was probably the biggest news of the night, it was not the only big announcement.

Top Ten Marvel Video Games
Marvel is undoubtedly one of the biggest franchises in modern history. They are an absolute juggernaut for comics, movies and merchandise. Over the years, Marvel have loaned their characters out to all sorts of different mediums at times to varying degrees of success with some of the early movies before the Marvel Cinematic Universe not being up to par (I’m looking at you, Hulk…) This article, though, is going to look what I think are the 10 best Marvel video games in my opinion.
Why Snake Eyes GI Joe Origins Left Me Wanting A Bayonetta Film More Than Anything Else..
Ok I went into Snake Eyes Gi Joe origins not knowing what to expect. On one hand the trailer looked awesome, a throw back to over the top kung fu action flicks, but something of this level could easily fall off the rails. Lucky for me it delivered and I left the theatre pumped and intrigued . The strange thing was that while I really enjoyed the film and anticipate a sequel could be just as entertaining, I became even more excited and pumped about another possibility.
Peace After Presentation
Since the dawn of tradition (or about two years ago), Thursday is the night. It's an evening of conversation, of good food and good company. On each sacred Thursday, every member of our found family finds a gap in their busy schedules to coalesce at the table. We eat, drink, and laugh together before the work begins. Dice bags are emptied with a glorious clatter. Well-loved books are stacked within easy reach. The table is partitioned accordingly. Thursday is the night. Thursday is for D&D.

Everything You Need To Game Like A True Pro (No Experience Necessary)
I've been a massive gamer most of my life. I started my gaming journey back in 1988 using an Amiga 500 where games would take 10 minutes to set up and play. Most games had multiple floppy disks to load before I could even start playing. I then moved on to a PC when games like Doom and Quake were released, the faster loading and increased level of detail in games was moving rapidly. I was hooked. It didn't matter that the games looked like a pixelated screen; it was about having fun and taking my gaming to a whole new level of excitement. What a time to be alive with so many games available to play! New incredible hardware being developed and easy to access games subscription services makes gaming a lot easier now.
