Why everyone should Play Dungeons & Dragons

Share This: For years I have wanted to play Dungeons & Dragons, but never had a group of adventurers brave enough to take the leap. After years of watching groups like Acquisition Inc, Tabletop Adventures/Escapades I longed for an adventure. Finally this year I was asked to take out my dice and roll for initiative.

First Impressions: Is Pokémon Sun the Right Step for the Series?

Share This: As a kid, I would wake up each morning and watch Pokémon on Kids’ WB before heading off to school. Pokémon was my favorite show, my favorite game, my favorite conversation topic, my favorite everything.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare First Impressions. Yes, Really.

Share This: Yes, it’s true. In the Year of our Lord Two Thousand and Sixteen, I have never played Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. I was in 8th grade when the game was released and I didn’t have an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 at the time. But that’s not to say I’m completely ignorant about the game. I still vividly recall the intense announcement trailer, the across-the-board positive… Read Article →
