Character Spotlight: Eleven
Who hasn't fallen in love with the Netflix phenomenon Stranger Things? It's an amazing show on so many levels. It harkens back to our childhoods, at least if you were a child of the '80s or even early '90s. It also brings back some of our favorite genres. The show also features an extraordinary cast of characters. I'll admit, when I first heard that the main cast was all kids, I shuddered. My mind went back to other shows where the kids were too creepy or annoying. However, the Stranger Things cast is phenomenal. Out of the show came a fantastic girl

Geek Music Episode 110: Lipstick #2
In this episode of the Fandomania: Geek Music podcast, I talk again to Greg and Steve from Lipstick. Although Lipstick II came out back in January, we hadn’t yet talked about it for the podcast. It’s a much geekier album than their debut, something which might have been polarizing out in the larger music community (as we talked about in the episode), but I suspect won’t be
Assassin’s Creed Origins: What I’m Loving So Far
After a year, I finally got a new game in the form of Assassin’s Creed Origins. I watched game trailers beforehand and I was definitely intrigued. AC Syndicate was amazing and definitely redemptive from other franchise mistakes. I was certainly interested in the storyline. I became eager to delve into the origins of the Brotherhood. I finally bought the game and my fingers stretched to play. I cautiously waited as I cracked open the plastic seal and began my journey into Ancient Egypt. Here is my list of things I’m loving so

In an all-new take on one of the world’s most popular games, Mahjong Crimes presents 250 levels of Mahjong Solitaire that unlock clues as you travel through 5 different scenarios within Agatha Christie’s iconic mystery. As you climb into your elegant compartment aboard the Orient Express, you’ll be faced with 1 of 7 inscrutable varieties of the classic tile-matching game. You may have to beat the clock to reveal a hidden clue. Or the tiles may have letters rather than Chinese characters, and matching those letters spells out an important facet of the
The new trailer for The Incredible Hulk is online, and it actually looks like a lot of fun. I’m not the biggest fan of the way the Hulk looks in the movie, but the action looks video-game-great. Check it out: Link Read More
Grand Theft Auto IV arrived in stores yesterday amid tons of hype, controversy, and urban legends (did you hear the one about the guy stabbed while waiting in line?). Apparently it also was swiped from a San Diego Gamestop by one particularly type-A personality crook. The cops Read More

Photo by M.J.S. This week there are no new games to download on the XBox Live Arcade. Feel free to speculate about why this may be, but I suspect it has something to do with a fellow named Niko and his cousin’s cab company. Read More
