GWC #204: Classic Sci-fi: Invasion of the Body Snatchers

This week: We talk foamy boobs and pod people in this week’s penultimate classic sci-fi feature, Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Our fantasy sci-fi tournament takes a turn for the worse as our poor producer Solai is kidnapped by pissed-off Klingons. And we run down the week in geek, including a new, more offensive (and […]


Fight Heaven Itself With Bayonetta

Normally action games aren’t really my style but in this case Bayonetta has more style in general than you can shake a really sexy stick at. In this world, Heaven and Hell had the out and out battle of the ages throwing hell into the loser’s bracket – which put the world out of balance. […]


GWC #201: Classic Sci-fi: The Day the Earth Stood Still

This week: We discuss one of the most awaited movies of 2009 — Avatar. We take on our first fantasy sci-fi challenge. And we dive into 1951’s The Day The Earth Stood Still, the first movie in our classic sci-fi arc. We also run down the week in geek, including Sir Patrick (Stewart)’s recent knighthood, […]


My New Dragon Age Puppy

I realize that I’ve already posted about Dragon Age Origins recently but there is something of great note I discovered a few days ago – there is a playable dog character. That’s right, take a gander at my new pup Bronx. He’s a playable, levelable character just like any of the others. I named him […]


Dragon Age Origins and TNG

Part of the Xmas loot this year was Dragon Age Origins for XBox 360. Both my brother and I got a copy and spent the day after playing it up. After spending about 8 hours with the title I can say without fear of contradiction that Bioware is becoming my favorite developer. Oh, and did […]


GWC #199: Lord of the Rings: Return of the King

This week: We discuss leadership’s role in the Return of the King. We draft teams for our upcoming fantasy sci-fi game. And Audra and the Tolkein Professor speculate on why fantasy literature gets the shaft among the cognoscenti. We also run down the week in geek, including the critics response to Avatar’s opening (and Sigourney […]

NCSoft announced on Friday that it will be opening up the beta version of their new MMORPG, Aion, on September 6th for a one-week period before the game is finalized for their release version, which comes out September 22nd. If you pre-order your copy of Aion now, you can get a two-day head start on […]


Free TV: Dead Like Me

Dead Like Me stars a girl named George — yes, you read that right — who’s a bitter slacker not really engaged in life. Within the first ten minutes of the pilot George gets killed by a meteoric space toilet. Mandy Patinkin (Princess Bride, True Colors, Law & Order) shows up and tells her about […]


Sam Raimi To Direct Warcraft Movie

Blizzard is teaming up with Legendary Pictures and Sam Raimi to produce a movie based on World of Warcraft. Raimi, known for the Spider-Man trilogy as well as the cult classic The Evil Dead, will direct. Charles Roven — director of last-summer’s blockbuster The Dark Knight — will produce. “At its core, Warcraft is a […]


Food Straight Out Of The Future (Or Alternate Past)

Sadly, replicators aren’t standard in Earth kitchens. And we don’t live in the Star Wars universe where the only food we see onscreen is a pear flying through the air. Thankfully we’re not forced to choke down algae mash with our algae coffee every morning. But if you’ve ever had a hankering for the food […]


Interest Your Younglings In Sci-Fi

You’re relaxing during your time off and an image of the opening credits of Star Wars: A New Hope scrolls through your mind. Or maybe it’s an image of ET’s glowing finger, the sound of Inigo Montoya saying “My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die,” or an image of the […]


Review: Dragon Age — The Stolen Throne

Gamers know David Gaider for the great characters he’s created for popular games Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and Neverwinter Nights. And now that he’s the lead writer on Bioware’s upcoming fantasy RPG Dragon Age: Origins he’s published his first novel (and prequel to the new game), Dragon Age: The Stolen Throne. It’s […]
