    Armello's "Game of Thrones With Animals" Digital Board Game Heads To PS4

    I decided to give this one a try after seeing this here. I've now got almost 60 hours logged and I absolutely adore it. The game is colourful, engaging and perfect if you only have a small window to game. It is a boardgame. Plain and simple. It makes no allusions of grandeur and embraces what it...

    Poll: How do you personally feel about the term cisgender?

    This website used to be about gaming and nerdy culture. For few years it was a bookmark I would visit every day to read articles, watch videos and look at intelligent people talking about their hobbies. Now, it's not a bookmarked site, but out of... I don't know, nostalgia I suppose, I still...

    Game of Thrones The Lion and the Rose Breaks Torrent Records

    It does seem like they are missing out on so much money by not providing a global service with a small fee to view new episodes. There must be a business reason behind it, either that, or HBO have the Squeenix mentality of doing what their fans don't want because they hate profit. Maybe it'll...

    Halo & Destiny Composer Says He was Fired by Bungie "Without Cause"

    Halo score is on my playlist as one of the greatest video game soundtracks of recent memory. Sacking this guy without any reason given seems like madness, but in all likelihood, they are probably trying to cut costs before the release of their game to maximise profits. It's not a new thing in...

    Candy Crush Dev: Microtransactions Are The Future of Games

    King should not even be covered on The Escapist if I had my way. They are hardly a 'games company' at all. This 'games guru' is talking out of his ass and I'm glad that almost everyone can see that. F2P (pay to get anywhere) has its place in the industry, will it become the standard method of...

    Game of Thrones Season 4 Episode 2 Review "The Lion and the Rose"

    The make-up on Jack's face in his final scene was outstanding. I've seen some jokes floating around that they actually killed him for maximum believability. The Bolton's are shaping up to be this season's baddies, though I have read the books and I know that we're in for a lot of drama in King's...

    Oculus Rift Dev Kit 2 Sells 25,000 Units in One Month

    Sorry, I'm having some trouble understanding this statement. You wanted to buy one to support the team and play around with it, but because they have money, you're now not going to buy one? What kind of crazy convoluted logic is that? I too, am waiting for the consumer release, with baited...

    Jimquisition: The Unholy Trinity Of Blind Greedy Bastards

    Jim, I feel a bit like I'm being indoctrinated into an abusive regime hell-bent on world domination after watching you speak in front of your new background. Wait, was that your plan all along?!

    CCP Games Cancels World of Darkness MMO

    Well, damn. I was a little interested in this. Not enough to be closely following every new development, but interested enough that I knew I'd be trying it out eventually. We need more games in this genre, The Secret World was really interesting, but could of been done better for sure, I wish...

    Aliens Director James Cameron: Prometheus "Didn't Add Up Logically"

    Prometheus was quite possibly the most stupid film I have seen in the past few years. Almost everything the characters did made no sense and was the complete opposite of a rational, supposedly intelligent astronaut on a science mission. The story was all over the place, with some scenes that...

    Star Citizen Unveils First Public Demo

    It wasn't helped by Chris demonstrating the game so poorly. Not only was he terrible at piloting the ship, his narration wasn't particularly enlightening or informative either. Still, for a game not quite in alpha, it's looking fantastic. The entire time I was trying to imagine having my entire...

    8 Reasons That We Should All Love Stephen Colbert

    Next week - 8 Reasons For Non-Americans As To Who Stephen Colbert Is And Why We Should Care Just kidding, I know who he is. He's that American guy who jokes about politics in a one-man panel show that is apparently satirical, but instead comes across as slap-stick. Hailed as a deity by...

    Star Wars Episode VII: Is Oxford Student Ben Kenobi's Descendant?

    Oh look, more thread-space on The Escapist for people to crap all over the director of the new Star Wars films. All the cool kids are doing it! Descendant doesn't necessarily mean that Ben himself got busy. It could be a relation's offspring, like a niece or something. Or since it is...

    Massive Warhammer Festival More Than The Average LARP

    My experience with a local LARP group that I attended 5 or so years back have pretty much confirmed to me that it's not for me. I still enjoy checking out pictures of cool outfits and what-not though. But the reality, was too tough a pill to swallow. I really thought I'd love it, I've been...

    Hearthstone Reveals Single-Player Adventure Mode

    This is both true and false. I agree with you that skill is more of a factor than many people believe, since so many players simply play every card in their hands as soon as it is available. However there are cards in the game that can dramatically shift the direction of play, or squeeze out a...
