Star Wars: Alphabet Squadron – Alexander Freed

Since the formation of the new canon, Lucasfilm has kept a pretty tight lid on the events that take place between the original trilogy and the sequel trilogy era. I’ve been reading/reviewing the new novels by publication date, and so far only the Aftermath trilogy and Bloodlines have taken place during this period. Since there’s …

Review: Wasteland

I started my RPG catch-up project a little over a year ago. In that time, I’ve covered a number of retro RPG titles. One of the highlights of this project so far were my reviews of the Bard’s Tale Trilogy. As someone who grew up playing the Wizardry franchise, Bard’s Tale was an absolute blast …

Introducing Windows 11

I remember back when Windows 10 was initially released, Microsoft made the comment “Windows 10 will be the final version of Windows ever.” That’s quite a bold claim! After all, as someone who has been using Windows ever since the 3.1 days, I’ve seen many iterations of the OS. And, as a former Microsoft beta …

Star Wars: Master & Apprentice – Claudia Gray

While I can certainly appreciate Star Wars novels that focus on some of the more mundane characters and locations in the galaxy, my favorite books always tend to be about the people and places made popular by the films. Especially when the book provides a lot of backstory. For this reason, I was very excited …

Nerd Fuel: Starbucks – Spring Day Blend

You know me. I’m a sucker for limited edition/seasonal coffees. In the past Starbucks has produced some pretty interesting seasonal options. I’m a big fan of their various blonde roasts and several of their fall and winter varieties. So when I saw their new Spring Day Blend on the store shelf, I knew it was …

Dungeons & Dragons: Van Richten’s Guide to Ravenloft

For me, Ravenloft has always been one of the most fascinating settings for Dungeons & Dragons campaigns. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve had a fascination with gothic horror. This is something that originally stemmed from viewing old Universal Monster movies as a young child. Then, around the age of thirteen I got my …

FFXIV: Version 5.5 Update

It’s hard to think that this time last year I had all but quit playing Final Fantasy XIV. A lot has changed since then, and I’m not just talking about the game itself. For starters, my wife has recently started playing again after an almost eight year hiatus. In fact, so has my son! But …
