My birthday (Dec. 17) and Christmas have come and gone, and now there's a nice pile of geeky presents stacked on the Geek Tree's rocket-themed tree skirt.
I just pre-ordered A Memory Of Light on Audible. I can't wait to listen to the last Wheel of Time book. -- ken #books
It was a good Christmas for my Pathfinder campaign, as I got two of the new game master-friendly books released by Paizo -- Ultimate Equipment and NPC Codex -- and one player-friendly book, the Advanced Players Guide.
When it comes to pinball, there are two tables that I love. Star Trek: The Next Generation and Indiana Jones. I easily spent hundreds of dollars in quarters on those two games in college, and they're the two games I'd most like to own.
It's been a good year for Star Wars fans. Disney bought Lucasfilm, and announced that a new trilogy -- with some of the original actors, but without George Lucas directing -- will kick off in 2015. We also saw the return of Star Wars gaming with a slew of new releases from Fantasy Flight Games: The Star Wars card game, expansions for the X Wing miniature combat game, and finally a new Star Wars role-playing game.
Every year for 20 years I asked for Electronic Battleship for my birthday. I never got it, and instead made due with the standard, analog iteration that didn't have cool sound effects. Flash foward: I'm 41, and I still don't have Electronic Battleship, but I did get to watch the cinematic disaster movie based on the game of the same name.
My 9-year-old self never saw that one coming.
