Monthly Recommendations – Waiting in Line

Last month I helped you pass the time until we got to a month that would have more to do… this month, we’re going to go a bit more focused on that. This month I’d like to give you the best short scope games and anime, the type you can load up and play when you have a few minutes waiting in line for that panel to open its doors… or watch while you sit and eat those delicious convention centre hot dogs(/sarcasm).

So, due to various issues… the Monthly Recommendations are going to be timed a little weird this month. The next week of recommendations are going to be going up on Friday of next week in the morning – to help us all prepare for Ai-Kon. After that, the final week will release on the 27th. Sorry this month has fewer recommendations than normal, life just hit me hard this past week. But hopefully we’ll be back on schedule now.

Their games made me happy, and I loved the communities they’d built. For a while, in my eyes they could do no wrong… but over time… that has changed. I think we’ve been drifting apart for a while, and I’ve just had a hard time recognizing it… but recently, it’s been becoming more and more obvious.

Weekly Recommendations – Lord of the Recommendations

Since we have a prominent Tolkien-inspired game hitting this week, I thought I’d make my recommendations content that is either inspired by LotR or that shares a similar theme or focus.

Shadow’s Six – Blizzard’s Best Creations

Blizzard has recently announced that they’ve cancelled another much-anticipated title – this time the secretive Project Titan, which was supposed to be Blizzard’s next attempt at a Massively Multiplayer Online RPG. In order to mourn its loss, along with the finally confirmed to be cancelled StarCraft: Ghost, I’d like to celebrate the greatest of Blizzard’s works. This is not an easy list to narrow down, because while Blizzard hasn’t released a lot of games, they’ve (nearly) all been well made and they also have a vast array of books set in their game worlds. Here we’ll highlight the best among all of those… so let’s take a trip down Blizzard’s history.
