Last week, we asked what spring/summer movie you were most looking forward to. Maybe it’s because it’s coming up so soon, but the majority of you picked Spiderman 3. We’ll find out soon enough if it is worth all the hype- and we’ll be sure to ask you what you thought of it after it […]

A scandal that seems to have exploded over the weekend despite actually happening two months ago: Sony, who has some problems in the PR department, decided to throw a big event to celebrate the launch of God of War 2 in, appropriately enough to the game’s story, Athens. They also decided to go the extra […]
First, I want to recommend some other game design blog reading that is not my own: The Importance of Being Elegant takes a good shot at attempting to define elegance in board games and providing means by which we can evaluate a game for elegance. Good stuff that I need to dive into further. Sometimes, […]
The Big Picture: Jurrasic Park 3 Island Survival Game is a board game produced by Hasbro based on the movie of the same name. Many board games based off of movies tend to be poorly designed, with the intent to sell copies based off of the title and not from the game-play. Hence, many board […]

Jack Thompson gets it for his ridiculous comments on the VT shootings. Linky Edit by Bartoneus: It looks like he’s getting called out on his BS by the San Francisco Chronicle too, and I imagine more to come.
The original Transformers movie cast as Lord of the Rings. Strangely compelling. I found this, along with a number of other potential candidates, at The Trailer Mash (I rejected the many 300 parodies there, but the Anchorman one is worth checking out).
