You’re not a true gamer if all you play are casual games like Angry Birds, or so says the guy with the Wii. The thing is, there’s always a bigger fish in the sea, and when it comes to gaming, there’s one fish that absolutely can take out all the others. Be very careful the next time you think of bragging about your gaming prowess.

This comic, titled Female Fantasy III, depicts a situation that definitely happens in real life and in circumstances other than gaming. It makes me sigh.

Roger Ebert once wrote an article in which he claimed that video games can not be art. The internet promptly exploded in outrage. I happen to agree with the internet. Much later, he amended his original statements, but it’s always felt like he was trying to appease us while sticking to his original statements. The people behind Into The Pixel are out to prove him wrong with their annual selection of the best in video game art from around the world. The 2011 collection was on display at PAX East last weekend and it was as beautiful as anything you’d find in a museum.

If you’re a serious tabletop gamer, then visions of Geek Chic tables have probably been dancing in your head for several years now. These things are works of art that are absolutely the most beautiful gaming tables you will ever see. They even have beautiful names like Emissary, Envoy and Sultan. Yeah, they’re that cool.
Your purchasing experience starts off just like buying any old table. You pick walnut, maple or cherry wood and things like stain colors and hardware. But then you get to the gamer stuff where you pick things like player stations with flip-down desks, secret drawers, cup holders and dice towers. I know, right?
Now, Geek Chic has upped the ante with their new and improved Locus table which includes a multi-touch gaming surface on a high end screen that pops up out of the table and slides back down flat with just the press of a button.
If you use the internet, chances are you’ve noticed the increase in web series over the past several years. Actors, writers, and directors reached a point of frustration with Hollywood and creating original content for the web became an outlet for instant expression. The basics were still necessary of course: script writing, auditions, production design, etc. However, instead of waiting for the seven-headed executive to make decisions about which stories the broad audience wanted to hear, innovators could take to the web without being censored. The internet offered creative, if not financial, freedom. Niche interests could be developed and taken worldwide. How could creators resist?
