    Band of Bugs Avatar Update & Kaloki DLC

    I have never been the greatest at strategy games. They always seem to take a while for me to figure out the patterns, usually after about the 10th death in a row. After a while I get into a groove, but more often than not, I never seem to finish them. But the teasing of NinjaBee Games via their Twitter account about Avatars casting spells & battling giant bugs intrigued me. So a couple days before the Avatar update and new DLC was released, I found myself preparing with the game’s original star, Maal. We got off to a rough start; I was trying to get used to the controls, Maal kept getting into harm’s way. Once we got the ball rolling, I was having a great time. Maneuvering and getting used to the various characters (and their unit status) was a treat. Tiernan gave me the guidance I needed

On the outside, she has the perfect life, a high paying job and everything she ever wanted available to her. But the sameness of the everyday grind gets to Veronika who feels she has nothing left to live for. She attempts to commit suicide by ingesting too many sleeping pills. However, her suicide attempt fails, and instead she ends up in a mental hospital in Slovenia. At the hospital she is told she has a week to live because of the damage the pills did to her heart. In the mental hospital she meets many unique patients. Zedka, has clinical depression,

    Sydney Supanova 2009 Wrap-up

    Supanova is always an event I look forward to, and this year was no different! With Anime, Games, Books, Sci-Fi, Cosplay, Celebrities… who wouldn’t, right? When I walked into the Dome at Sydney Olympic Park on Saturday 27th, I was greeted by the huge “inFAMOUS” display at the EB Games booth and the nice buzzing sound of stallholders setting up before the crowds were let in. I had a wander around the event, enjoying the space to browse at stalls before the masses were set upon us. I found there was an area set up for online gaming as well as card gaming on one side of the Dome, with the Yu-Gi-Oh! Nationals being held here. In the back of the Dome was the Madman Anime Theatre (above) where the Madman National Cosplay Championships and the Madman Cosplay Contest was held as well as screenings of various Anime shows being
