Hegemonic—The Unboxing!

6 12 2013

photo (41)Something we’ve never done before is the obligatory unboxing video of a new game. There’s probably no real good reason for this, other than when we get new games we typically tear into them like a 5 year-old on Christmas morning.

However we were provided with some advance copies of Hegemonic, a new 4X game from Minion Games, and we thought it would be a good idea to show you…what’s in the BOX! (Which is more than absolutely nothing!)

Origins: A Week in Preview

6 06 2013


Well, next week the Origins Game Fair will descend upon the greater Columbus area, along with thousands of gamers of all types: tabletop, RPGers, and yes, even the LARPers will be there in force, providing many great photo opportunities.

Scott lives 2 time zones away and is unable to make the journey, so I (Jeremiah) will be heading down with a few friends who are going to help me cover the vast expanses of the convention…in one day.

This is our first large con that we will be covering and we’re pretty excited about the opportunity. And I’ve been lining up meetings with designers, and publishers this week.

Here’s a few items we’ll be covering:

New Games—We’ll be scouring the con for new and exciting (and yet-to-be-discovered) titles, both in the exhibit hall and at the Unpub events.

Video Interviews and Demos—If all goes as planned, you’ll see my smiling face alongside those of the people who bring you the games we love—and, they’ll be teaching you about their newest/most-popular titles!

Tons of Social Media Entries—If I’m excited about something, I’ll burn it up with Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook action. It will be like you’re ACTUALLY there!

Plus more. We’re still working on what we’ll be able to cover, but we’d love to hear from you about what you’d like to see. Is there something you’re excited about, or sad that you’ll be missing out on? I’ll try my best to cover as much as I can!
Thanks so much for reading, and be sure to subscribe to our email list on the right.

And follow us in the social media world of Twitter, FaceBook and Instagram!

A Look Inside?

19 09 2012

So, without going into a long story full of slightly boring details, I will simply say Firestone and I (Jeremiah) will be in the same state next week for several days. And while we won’t have much free time to work on the blog, we have kicked around the idea of doing something fancy, like a video review, or celebrity death match, or something of that nature while we’re in the same time zone. (Okay, videos on the internet aren’t exactly “fancy.”)

I thought I’d take a minute and open up the forum to you. our readers. Does a video feature pique your interest? Is there a title you think we could review together that would benefit from hands-on in-your-face video review action? We’d love to hear your suggestions! Leave ’em in the comments or over on our Facebook page! And as always, thanks for reading!
