Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, Blizzard’s free-to-play collectible card came, left beta a few weeks ago, and its climbing popularity is evidenced by its dominating presence on Twitch, if not by the amount of Hearthsteeds I see roaming around World of Warcraft. For those not in the know, a Hearthsteed is the mount rewarded to WoW players who have played three full Hearthstone...

Titanfall (PC) Review – First Person Bliss

This won't end well.
on Wed, Apr 2, 2014 | By Eric Guzman

  A few weeks ago I called Titanfall the new Modern Warfare. Today I’d go as far as to call it our future Warfare. This isn’t a knock on the game; unlike Internet hipsters and Call of Duty (COD) haters I thoroughly enjoyed COD for what it was. A quick twitch, fast-paced “in your face” shootout; which also revolutionized shooters as we knew them at the...

on Thu, Mar 13, 2014 | By Eric Guzman

When colleague and good friend Jeffrey Wilson told me that he has a passion for great backpacks I gawked at him. When it came to my geek decorum a backpack was the last thing on my mind. I was contempt with shoving my laptop and fight stick into any standard duffel bag. I couldn’t fathom spending more than 40 bucks on a bag it just wasn’t logical to me. That is until...

on Wed, Mar 12, 2014 | By Stephanie Burdo

As a female who is a fan of fantasy and all aspects of nerd lore, I was lucky enough to be introduced to the extensive universe in a way that wasn’t overwhelming, or too far beyond anything I could relate to at the time. If you’re a guy looking to pass on a passion to an important gal, follow my steps that are friendly to feminine interest yet extremely imaginative and...

Breaking up is hard to do, especially when your partner is a gamer, too

A true test of companionship, trust, and friendship.
on Wed, Mar 12, 2014 | By Eric Guzman

The tired old cliché, breaking up is hard to do, isn’t necessarily true. From my experiences I’ve learned that hardship comes after the break up. It’s the reclamation period full of questions, self-doubt, loneliness, and eventually self-discovery. Depending on the relationship, you may never suffer through this type of growing pain. But nonetheless this isn’t a dating...

It has taken every fiber of my being to be responsible and write this review. Nothing would satisfy me more than to push everything off of my desk and continue playing this game rather than jotting down gameplay impressions. During my time with South Park: Stick of Truth, I found myself pausing the game and walking away from the screen in uncontrollable fits of laughter....
