Bioshock: Infinite Initial Impressions

I don’t usually get pulled in by AAA games, but something about the trailer for Bioshock: Infinite caught my eye, and that ended up happening.

LoL Kill

James killed a dude in League of Legends.  I told him I’d blog about it.  That is all

Lord of the Rings LCG Solo: Passed through Mirkwood

I have continued playing the Lord of the Rings LCG solo over the past week.  I finished playing through the Passage Through Mirkwood 10 times and started on Journey Down the Anduin.  I’ve made some changes to my deck, and I’m not sure if I’ll need more for this next quest.  I also realized I was doing my scoring wrong.

Eclipse first impressions

My gaming group and I had been interested in Eclipse since it first came out.  With it going out of print so quickly and the price tag, we hadn’t pulled the trigger yet.  When researching games, we had put Sid Meier’s Civilization and Eclipse in the same category, but thought that Eclipse would be more appealing partially due to the sci-fi theme.  Then Myriad Games’ game share program came to the rescue.  It’s basically Netflix for board games that you can either pay for each month or can get free if you buy a certain amount from the store every month.  It’s the perfect way to try out Eclipse.  So how did it go?

Lord of the Rings: The Card Game – Solo Style

So due to a little miniature game burnout and other life reasons, I haven’t gotten to The Only Game In Town to play Warmachine for quite some time.  We’ve been having our every-other-week board game nights and playing video games, but I had started to feel like I was missing gaming a little bit.  Eventually I decided that I wanted to do something, but trekking out to the store still doesn’t work very well.  Enter Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, the living card game from Fantasy Flight Games.

New Year’s Resolution Movies Week 3: The Dark Knight Rises

For week 3 of our New Year’s resolution to watch a new movie every week we watched The Dark Knight Rises, the third installment in Chris Nolan’s Batman trilogy.  Before I say any more, I should probably note that my wife and I might be the only two people in the world who liked Batman Begins better than The Dark Knight.  Yes, Heath Ledger was great but I thought it had some serious pacing issues which is a big problem for me.  I still liked them both a lot, just loved Batman Begins.  So where does The Dark Knight Rises rate?

Wizards of the Mystic Fiefdom – A game for your Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom Cards

My wife and I are both big gamers and gigantic Disney Parks nerds.  When we heard that there was going to be an interactive card game in the Magic Kingdom, we were pretty excited.  Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom debuted last year at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World.  Every day, you can go get a random pack of cards and an RFID ‘Key’ card to play the game.  You go to the specified ‘portals’ in various places around the Magic Kingdom and after it recognizes your key card, you battle villains on a cool looking video screen.  To battle them, you hold up one or more of the spell cards you got, which it recognizes with cameras.  It’s a blast.  When we got home, we had a pile of these really cool collectible spell cards that just seemed like they were begging to be played with, but alas we had no game.  So we did what any gamer would do and made one up!
