It's not often that I can say one of my fondest memories of an espionage, first-person shooter, role-playing game was spending half an hour playing basketball, or rather, trying to sink a basketball through a hoop in the middle of downtown Detroit.

Song of the Month

End Boss Theme (Guacamelee) - Rom Di Prisco




We're taking a break from the epic orchestral pieces with this song that sizzles with samba spice.  Guacamelee had an amazing soundtrack that blended rhythmic spanish music with melodic techno to great effect.  The whole soundtrack deserves a listen.   


Cosplay Display

This amazing armor cosplay is made entirely of Magic cards.  He's themed off of one of Avacyn's soldiers and even has the mana symbols crafted into his armor and weapon. This was at Megacon 2013 in Orlando Florida
