I am a gamer, game designer, entrepreneur, a "free thinker", marketing consultant, and freelance writer. Rather than doing the obligatory sharing of credentials and trying to impress you with my "mad skills", let's just start a conversation. If there is anything else you want to know, ask away! 8)

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you may have caught some of the buzz about one of the most ambitious Kickstarter indie game projects this year: ReElise (pronounced “release”). This game is nothing short of SUPER DOPE. But don’t take our word for it.. Peep our gameplay video and YouTube exclusive SNEAK PEEK:
This game is high-concept yet super fun to play. It combines…
Moving hip-hop beats and original OST
Old-school/retro turn-based JRPG game mechanics
Deep combat system and phat loot
Emotional story with tons of feels
Dynamic characters that aren’t made out of cardboard
Christian themes and practical life advice, hope, and inspiration
On the latter note, some folks may be turned off by the Christian aspect. The knee-jerk reaction may be that it’s going to be preachy or that a hidden agenda will take priority over good gameplay. None of those things are true.
UPDATE 01/08/2015: Story covered by WPTV West Palm Beach includes video feature from ABC Action news.
MAIN STORY: LeAnn Moder, and her family, have hit a slight snag after Doctor Who parked the TARDIS slap bang in-front of their house over Christmas 2014.
The TARDIS was built by LeAnn’s father in 2012 and used in lieu of a traditional ‘altar’ at her and her husband David’s Doctor Who / Torchwood themed wedding, held at a British style pub in a local mall. It has since been loaned to a church, libraries and a fair few Sci-Fi & Comic Book conventions in the area.
The problems started when the couple received this rather poorly constructed letter from the Lexington Home Owners Association of Tampa Florida just before Christmas.
Basically somebody grassed them up for being different. Yes, they live in an area that has all kinds of rules and regulations (especially regarding weeds) so perhaps they shouldn’t have…
Dig this interview between TIMD and the producer/director of the Doctor Who radio drama series, Dark Journey. We will be working with MA Tamburro soon over at GeekyAntics.net to discuss the new season, favorite classic Doctor Who moments, creative influences/inspirations, and what we’d love to see in New-WHO (amongst other things)!
What would you say is the purest Doctor Who experience, the heart of the narrative and “recipe”? Mystery, adventure, fantasy, science, or something else? Leave us VM at 206-415-4987 or e-mail us at twtt(at)geekyantics(dot)net to join the conversation!
Emotionally shattered after a tragedy, the Doctor arrives in London and becomes companion to Sherlock Holmes in an effort to stop Jack the Ripper’s murderous trail of terror. But is there an even greater evil at work in Victorian England?
Welcome to the fan produced Doctor Who audio Dark Journey. It’s a multi-episode series written, performed and produced in Toronto, Canada with a Canadian and international cast and crew featuring the music of Doctor Who fan favourite Traffic Experiment.
I had the chance to sit down and have a chat with Director/Producer M.A. Tamburro about the project.
Troughton Is My Doctor: What made you want to get into fan produced Doctor Who audio?
M.A. Tamburro: My good friend Andrew Chalmers is a writer and fellow Doctor Who fan. We’ve done a few small comedies and things together before and this just seemed like an obvious thing that would be fun…
Here’s a great article for anyone curious about how formal journalism works within an online framework, particularly if games are your thing. Robert knows his stuff and I like his grass-roots, humorous approach.
It is a question, no, it is the question that has plagued everyone who has ever tried to communicate, from the most brilliant writer to the first caveman who scratched up a perfectly good cave wall with messages that appeared to be insane ramblings to the rest of the tribe.
Speaking of that original set of markings, can you imagine all the information the first writer/artist wanted to convey?
“Females are soft and warm. After you bang them over the head with a club? Not so much.”
“Fire… good for making dead animal taste better.”
“Beware the Kardashian tribe. Me get bad vibe from them.”
But enough about the distant past, let’s talk about recent events and how they have impacted my present… and the damage they’re going to do to my future.
First of all, I am still currently employed as a bellman. My…
We have live coverage on the @GeekyAntics Twitter and GeekyAntics.net site. Tonight, June 10th 2014, at around 9pm Eastern (6pm Pacific) we’ll be doing a special E3 show with the Gaming Death Podcast.
Big things going on. Come join the GANG for #E3Live fun. So far, I’m most enjoying the small studio and indie releases. I dig what Microsoft is doing with the ID@XBox program. Any time us little guys have a chance to level the playing field, that is exciting news to me!
Project Spark is particularly intriguing. This is a sandbox game that actually allows you to create your own games. Will this be like RPG Maker Ace VX or will it be more akin to Sony’s Little Big Planet? Competition is heating up and it’s GREAT!
Special thanks to the Gaming Death Podcast and GamingDeath.com for keeping us updated on all the latest video game news. Even if you’re not into gaming, this technology and the game mechanics of it all are worth checking out. E3 is, after all, a marketer’s wet dream, no?
So, what have you enjoyed of the #E32014 reveals so far?
Hearthstone is taking the Internet by storm. Chances are you are not a “gamer” per se but you have played or at least heard of it. The iPad app has brought Hearthstone to the masses and remains a featured app with a MetaCritic rating of around 88-95 on any given day.. and it’s “just” a card game!
If you have been keeping tabs on Hearthstone, it may be worth noting that the first expansion, Curse Of Naxxramas, may come as soon as June 3rd 2014 (trust me.. June 3rd is a VERY educated “guess”). This expansion will introduce new cards, fresh game mechanics, and a deep single-player experience perfect for less competitive players. Regardless of the definitive release date, Naxxramas is gonna be awesome. Summer 2014 is gonna be the Summer of Hearthstone!
What excites me about this game beyond the marketing opportunities is the fact that this game is truly accessible. Blizzard knows how to develop games that are fun and easy to learn. Their properties become staples of geek and even mainstream culture. Heck, Hearthstone is still new and already tournaments are popping up with hundreds of thousands in prizes! #BlizzCon
Hearthstone follows the same tradition of accessibility and pervasiveness. It is simple while offering tons of replay value and depth. The layers of mastery are very satisfying indeed. Hearthstone is omnipresent. Do not resist. Give it a try.
