Undertale is one of the most talked about games at the moment, and I’m glad it is. Focusing on character, atmosphere, and a unique style of gameplay, Undertale has charmed almost everyone with its retro yet completely contemporary elements. (Except Spoony, but Spoony hates everything.)
Nintendo was my gateway drug. My first video games were Super Mario Bros. and Duck Hunt on the NES, and it was love from the start. That experience made a lasting impression on me - literally as well as figuratively, since I still have a scar on the side of my nose from the time my little brother chucked the Duck Hunt…
In celebration of N7 Day, here’s an (unexpectedly moving!) all-new trailer for Mass Effect Andromeda, coming in 2016:
It was suggested the other day that I do a FOTD about Pluto. I thought about it but the reason I didn’t want because there really isn’t a lot of Pluto in sci-fi/fantasy pop culture.
This week is a twofer. The next two guests I would invite have a lot of similar traits, and it seems sensible to introduce them side by side. Firstly, they are both scientists, though their fields of expertise do differ. Secondly, these men are true intellectuals – men of ideas, creativity and invention. Thirdly, they…
The awesome Garrus and Tali costume hoodies are pretty deeply discounted at the Bioware store today. I've been eyeing one of these for a while, and haven't seen them go on sale often, so I jumped on it.

Two weeks ago, I argued the case for an educational visit to Rapture. Last week, I set my sites on Neo-Paris. The third video game location I have in mind would probably make for the best school trip ever.

Tay Blip: The next mass effect will run on Frostbite 3. The MAKO will return. ETA 2015.
In a brazen attempt to outflex time and plans everywhere, the epic Live Play finale of Mass Effect will be moved to Sunday at 5pm EDT. This has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that the Pixelympics stuff got moved to today. Nothing at all. We just wanted the ending of the book club to be as confusing,…
Want to help shape Mass Effect 4? Take this quick survey and look forward to news on the game in this year's Comic-Con.
The Mass Effect Book Club is now in session!
Join us in Steam chat tonight at 6:00 EST while we play some Mass Effect! Or have Mass Effect paused in the background while we sit around giggling at highly inappropriate jokes. Or don't play Mass Effect at all and just come chat. You know what? Do what you want.
In case you didn't know, your favorite series might suck.
