I can sum up this post like this: IF YOU BACKED THE NANO GAME WHERE ART THOU ROMEO? by Crash Games, PLAY IT. It plays in about five to ten minutes and looks beautiful. We played right […]
I’ve made up lists of best albums for ages but this is the first time I’ve posted one outside of social media. So a quick disclaimer: this doesn’t represent G&G’s staff picks or anything, just mine.This was a really hard year to pick. The past three years have been absolutely excellent for music but 2013 may […]

My brother and I always have the best ideas.For example, this most recent one. Let’s hop on a ten year old MMO and make new characters together. But let’s do it like we’re completely fresh. No gold given to our new characters. No gear hand me downs. No guild but the two of us. Let’s […]
Giacomo and I tried this interview a while ago via Google Hangouts, but the internet and distance conspired against us. After a few interviews with those involved in larp (He doesn’t call his game a larp.), I felt like I needed to follow up, even if that meant texting it out.We talk about Burning Opera, which he […]
