Follow me at MMORPG.com where I cover games and hardware!

Hi Everyone! Long time no see! If you’re reading this, it’s probably because you a) found the site through a google search or blogroll link, or b) are trying to find me for my work at MMORPG.com. If you haven’t heard, that’s my new home now. Though, “new” probably isn’t the best descriptor anymore. I …

Virtual Tabletop Face-Off – Roll20 Vs. Fantasy Grounds

Guest article by Cohen of the PC Gaming Guru In recent years, tabletop gaming has experienced a bit of a renaissance – or, at the very least, a surge in popularity. This is partially due to web shows like Critical Role bringing the beauty of tabletop gaming into the public sphere. There’s no longer a …

If you’re not reading Rant On Rob, you should be

Greetings, Game By Nighters! Just popping in to give a sterling recommendation to my friend and colleague, Rob Lashley’s new gaming blog: Rant On Rob. If you don’t know Rob yet, you surely know his work. He’s been writing excellent columns and reviews for MMORPG.com (and now GameSpace!) for some time. He’s also done a …

Book Review: Little Heaven by Nick Cutter

Little Heaven is the latest, and perhaps greatest, horror novel from the mind of Nick Cutter. Like many readers, my first encounter with Nick’s work was with his fantastic debut, The Troop. Even having finished that novel a good four months ago, scenes from it still bubble up from my memory from time to time …

Book Review: Death Follows by Cullen Bunn

Death Follows is unapologetically dark. Based on the title and cover art, I expected this, but it even surprised me. Having never read Mr. Bunn’s work before (this graphic novel is based upon a short story), I went into the tale not knowing what to expect. I left feeling unsettled because of it, so I’ll …

Book Review: The Facts in the Case of the Departure of Miss Finch by Neil Gaiman

The Facts in the Case of the Departure of Miss Finch is an adaptation of a Neil Gaiman short story, first published in comic form in 2008. At the time of its release, I, sadly, had not yet discovered Mr. Gaiman. In the years since then, he has become one of my favorite authors in …

Book Review: Paleo – The Complete Collection by Jim Lawson

I went into Paleo with high hopes due to the author, Jim Lawson’s, pedigree. I didn’t quite what to expect, however, because the concept was rather hard to wrap my head around. A three hundred page graphic novel focusing on real-life dinosaurs. No anthropomorphizing them. No applying human thoughts or attributes, or breaking from the …

Book Review: Martian Manhunter: The Epiphany

I had never read Martian Manhunter before, so I was hesitant about picking this book up. I’m glad I did. Without any background going in, The Epiphany does a good job of introducing J’onn J’onnz, the titular Manhunter, who he is and what he stands for. This would be a typical superhero introduction if not …

Steam Link/Controller – The Couch MMO Solution?

Oh, hello there! It’s been a while! No, I’m not dead or lost, just inundated with work and parenting (like many of you!). That said, there’s always time for a game or two, right? Which brings me to this point: It’s hard to play MMOs with little kids in the house! These days, I find …
