Another year brings another list. If all goes as planned, I'll update this blog frequently, and won't finish until the new year arrives. The purpose of this document is twofold. First and foremost, I'm using it to chronicle all of the games I enjoy playing over the course of this year. The list I created last year helped me keep track of the games I still needed to get my hands on, and also reminded me what games I needed to bring up for Game Informer's Game of the Year voting.
Ubisoft's Valiant Hearts: The Great War is my latest addition.
Classic ships. Classic armor. Classic character. Disney and LucasFilm's
new "extended" trailer for Star Wars: Rebels is loaded with classic
Harry Potter's battle against Lord Voldemort is over, but that isn't stopping J.K. Rowling from writing about her favorite wizard. Harry and Dumbledore's Army return in a new short story appearing on Rowling's Pottermore website. This 1,500-word look into Harry's middle-age years is told as a Daily Prophet article penned by gossip correspondent Rita Skeeter.

If I asked you to name a few characters from Guardians of the Galaxy, I'm willing to be most of you would say something to the effect of "that dude from Parks and Recreation and a talking raccoon." And you'd be right. Both of these characters are a part of Marvel's new vision for this team, which will leap from comic pages to the silver screen on August 1. For comic book readers in the '60s, '70s, and '90s, the identity of the Guardians of the Galaxy was much different.
In the days before the talking raccoon and tree...
My baby girl Evalei is just now developing an imagination and an opinion of preferred toys and activities. As of this writing, she's a big fan of tea sets and Star Wars creatures. She has no interest in stuffed dolls unless they are Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or tigers. She finds Elmo funny, yet tells me to turn off Sesame Street whenever Telly shows up.
Everyone was a baby at some point – even the most feared rulers of the universe.
Lego versions of Minecraft, Back to the Future, and Ghostbusters all happened thanks to Lego's brilliant Cuusoo (Lego Ideas) program. If you are unfamiliar with Cuusoo, it gives Lego fans a chance to design their own sets, which are then voted upon by the community. The sets with the highest tallies (10,000 or more votes) enter a review period at Lego. One of those sets is turned into a retail product.
The set, dubbed Orca's Last Stand, depicts Martin Brody, Matt Hooper, Sam Quint on the Orca hunting Jaws.
May 4 is Star Wars Day! Rather than celebrate this glorious day with positivity and an editorial that speaks fondly of our favorite galaxy far, far away, I decided to round up all of the horrible characters I could think.

Every gamer has a story of domination to tell. I was gifted with such a victory in Hearthstone last night. In truth, there's a little bit of hyperbole in this blog's headline. I've enjoyed bigger and more meaningful victories in myriad other games over the years. This particular victory is heightened by my opponent.

Stargate is one of my all-time favorite TV franchises. I was shocked when Syfy Network pulled the plug on Universe. The show was just hitting its stride. The first season was a fantastic introduction to a bold, new take on the Stargate lore, and the second season gave us a small taste of what looked to be an intense, dark future for everyone aboard starship Destiny. Alas, most people didn't get to see this story develop, as Syfy cited poor viewership numbers as the reason for its cancellation.
Fan seeks $50 million to fund a third season.
After completing Halfbrick’s excellent Colossatron: Massive World Threat on iPhone, I found myself in need of another new phone game. With recent iOS releases like Out There and Mines of Mars receiving mediocre ratings from Game Informer’s review crew, I had no leads on any noteworthy games I wanted to play. Rather than perusing the App Store’s chart-topping releases like I normally do, I settled on an unconventional method to find a new game.
My search for a new game to play led to five unknown titles.
In celebration of The Simpsons' 25th anniversary (has it been that long already?), Lego is releasing a series of minifigures based on this popular animated show. This collection consists of 16 familiar faces, including slight variants of the figures packaged with The Simpsons' expensive home. Each figure is sold individually in mystery bags for $3.99.

My work desk is cluttered with video game collectibles. When people walk into my office for the first time, most of them want to talk about the various objects on my desk before engaging in the original intended conversation. Role-playing fanatics are quick to comment on my Final Fantasy X action figure collection, and people who’ve been in gaming for decades lock in on the Sam and Max statue.
