Ultramarines: A Warhammer 40,000 movie… good news, bad news.

We’ve got some good news and we’ve got some bad news. The good news is that the Warhammer 40K film, Ultramarines: A Warhammer 40,000 Movie, is coming soon.

It’s […]

World of Warcraft players better hires than MBAs from Harvard!

Who should you be hiring in this downturn? Harvard MBAs or World of Warcraft players? One top expert reckons it’s the latter every time!

Eclipse Phase: Rimward: The Outer System (RPG review).

That game was first released back in the late 80s and I am old enough to remember buying that first edition. It is a testament to the game that it has retained its popularity and seen […]
