With three events in its schedule (Prime, East, and Australia), the Penny Arcade Expo is almost at this point where the din of it on Reddit and the internets is hard to ignore. Having been to two PAX events the past two years (it is absolutely a yearly trip for me from this point on), [...]
The OUYA, Kickstarter’s somewhat maligned microconsole, arrived at Tinderbox Studios on May 28 and we’ve had lots of folks asking about our first impressions.
So, I’ve persuaded the GamesDay crew to try to play Paizo’s Pathfinder game. After the great success we had with HeroQuest (you can listen to that adventure here), the was really no convincing – everyone eagerly hopped on board.
Because six of the eight players are brand new to any kind of tabletop RP games and [...]
Gamers and countrymen – lend me your headsets! Mathew here with a quick update for you on some of the changes happening behind the scenes here at GamesDay and some updates you’ll see here over the next little while.
While getting ready for PAX East this year, my very first video game trade show experience, I was preparing myself for a sensory overload of TV screens, video games, flashing lights and more colours than a pantone swatch booklet.

This is an interesting review. We got a copy of Dragon Age: Redemption, a DVD archive of the entire series of the Felicia Day-written web series that was created in partnership with BioWare and Microsoft. What’s interesting about it is that it’s not a game per se, but it’s a series that a fan has taken upon herself to write and star in. I find the very idea of that to be exciting.

This year was a great year for gaming, not only in terms of blockbusters but also the indie studios that got a chance to shine. From RPGs to fighters to action games, to even sports games (!?), I enjoyed a lot of different experiences. Here, in no particular order are the ones I had the most fun playing last year.
I was playing Skyrim the other day and thinking about my character and how much I’ve done for Skyrim – how my name will be chanted forever by the Greybeards and passed down from generation to generation of Nord. I’ve done so much for Skyrim: helped the Stormcloaks, killed dragons, stopped evil mages and monsters from corrupting the world. It’s all easy stuff for the sages to record in the annuls of Skyrim’s history.
I am a huge fan of Traveller’s Tales’ Lego games including Lego Pirates of the Caribbean and the Lego Star Wars series. Yesterday, Warner Bros announced that they’d entered into a partnership with Lego to make build kits of Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. Will that turn into eventual videogame tie-ins?
