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.

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.

My NBA 2K14 player is a real jerk. Some of the decisions I make in his career frame him in such a way, but he's generally an unpleasant person, even when he's trying to be nice. Judging by what people in the game's social media are saying, he's probably the least liked player in the history of the Cleveland Cavaliers' organization. His teammates hate him. The fans want him off of the court. Even the press is sick of his antics. Here's a timeline that illustrates how I'm turning him into one of the worst characters I've ever encountered in a video game.
My sixth NBA 2K14 update is small, but filled with action.

I'm one of those baseball fanatics you see sitting in the bleachers with a glove fastened on the left hand and an iPad held in the right. The iPad is used to check career statistics for players, scouting report data, and to tweet stupid baseball jokes. If I'm not getting Internet service in the stadium, I have a Who's Who in Baseball book tucked away as backup. Baseball statistics are a beautiful thing, and my love of them has compelled me to jot down as many game-related statistics as I can. The one I like sharing with you guys revolves around the games I play and complete over the course of a year.
This is my third straight year of chronicling the games I completed over the course of 365 days. I played a lot of bad games this year...
Lego released a video that gives us a tour of the upcoming Simpsons house set, which is every bit as amazing as it is expensive. As is the case with most Lego announcements, we don't have long to wait for its release; this one is due out next month. You'll just have to fork out $199.99 to add it to your collection. The video also gives us a rare look into the creation of minifigs.

After you watch this long-forgotten TV spot for the home versions of Joust, I think you'll agree TV marketing has gone the wrong way. What happens in this commercial? A man spends a few seconds playing Joust before the characters in the game come to life, destroy his house with lances and unexpected explosions, kill his pet bird in the process, and leave a tasty present behind that transforms the man into a feathered half-breed. This all unfolds in two minutes.

A trailer for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes hit the Internet yesterday, and an extensive trailer for How to Train Your Dragon 2 – a sequel to another film I didn't expect to enjoy yet ended up enjoying immensely – is here for your viewing pleasure. Seeing that Dreamworks has already inked How to Train Your Dragon 3 for a June 18, 2016 release date, I have to wonder if this sequel has a cliffhanger ending. How to Train Your Dragon 2 hits next summer on June 13.

Consisting of more than 500,000 yellow and black Lego bricks, and an engine comprised of four orbital engines and 256 pistons, this functioning Lego car can hit 15 to 18 MPH. It runs on air. The creative team of Steve Sammartino and Raul Oaida say they drive it slow to avoid a "a giant lego explosion."It was built in Romania and shipped to Melbourne.
The crazy Lego creations continue to pour in.
