I love nerd culture (and yes, that is intentionally vague), it shows us so many cool devices that make us say: “damn, I NEED one of those!” And with technology moving to the point where we can make a laser that can shoot through twenty feet of steel so it seems more and more likely that the current and more nostalgic desired toys of my nerd-dom could soon be in my dorm. So science people, here are the top ten nerd items (and if you want to be nit-picky, each of these does have some basis in gaming, so…yeah)
The Thief and I do what we do best…dick around and talk about gaming.
This right here is me, without any cheap gimmicks, puns or jokes. I’m being as serious as I can possibly be. This isn’t an “article”, a “review” or anything like that. This is about a devoted fan, who doesn’t want to see you become something that you’re not. A Villain in an Industry of Heroes. This is an open letter to Capcom:
Here’s another article in the NintendoLegend’s series, “Five Fine” NES games. If you like what you see you can find links to his main project blog in this article, or on The Community’s Friends’ page. Thanks for reading!
This weekend (if all goes well) we should be looking at our first ever Community roundtable with the whole gang (or as much of the gang as can attend…I know, really promising a lot here aren’t I?). We’re chock full of ideas for gamey stuff to talk about, but being Community-oriented and all we figured we’d put it out to you guys:
Is there anything in particular you’d like to hear us discuss? Any questions you’d like us to answer? If we use your topic or answer your question we’ll give you a shoutout!
Either leave suggestions here or email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Oh boy. Here we go again. It took Capcom over a decade, but finally Marvel Vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds (FTW…get it?) is out, but you’re wondering if it’s good…right? Well scroll on down with me and we’ll find out just how good it is.
So I’m pretty sure I’ve been promising an article like this since we started the blog last August, and now I’m finally getting around to it. Some notes before we get started:
-This is intended to help DMs who want to write their own broad Adventure campaigns without placing restrictions on the kind of characters a person can play.
-If you play D&D out of “splatbooks” or self-contained campaigns you purchase from Wizards or your local hobby shop, this article isn’t for you. Just…do what the book tells you to do. I don’t advise the splatbook route, however, if you really want to get any creative mileage out of the game. Remember that you’re not the first one to pick up each book, and you won’t be the last. Maybe you have players who have played that campaign before, or maybe your players are the kind who might get their own copy of the book to “peek ahead,” thus undermining you as DM and ruining the experience to some degree. Maybe it’s because I’m a writer, but the best D&D I’ve ever played has always been the written product of another DM’s imagination.
-I play D&D 3.5 traditionally. In planning this article out I don’t think I intend to discuss anything that couldn’t be applied universally to any edition of the game, however. If I do, feel free to flame me in the comments.
With that stuff out of the way, let’s get cracking.
Create, Play, Share. These words embody the LittleBigPlanet series. You are given an entire world to play in and to do anything you want with. Almost anything is possible in this game, even more so than with its predecessor.
Here at The Community, we’re all about promoting other gaming blogs and trying to get a wide range of views on a wide range of topics out to you, our audience. As such, we’re bringing you in syndication articles from Eric “NintendoLegend” Bailey’s “Five Fine NES” series. Eric’s a great writer with impeccable dedication, and we hope you’ll enjoy this article as much as we did.
