Brighter Basements

Alas, this will be my last video game review for 2016. Not because I feel like five weeks is a long time to be doing reviews (because I’d keep going if I could). But simply because I’ve run out of new games I played...

Please Excuse My Oversight

Well no review of video games in 2016 would be complete without touching on Overwatch. Like them or hate them, Blizzard seem adept in grooming a loyal purchasing base that will buy into every release so that it recoups development costs and then some....

A Dewdrop in the Valley

Well, we’re back. And just in time for the holidays! So expect us to be gone just as quickly! To be clear, I’m blaming Kait entirely for this. There’s no reason for her not to still be doing her book reviews. It’s not like...

The Invisible Library

When faced with the bleak reality of a desperate future, I retreat to the safety of the fantastically written word. While I tend to gravitate, during these dark times, to familiar books it is not always the case. In contrast to the rest of...

The Pillars of Good and Evil

Well, it’s that time of year again. As November encroaches I’m staring down the throat of a rather consuming project. So my posts on this lovely little piece of cyberspace real-estate are going to be haphazard at best. With any luck my co-contributors will...
