    ‘Castlevania’ Season 2 Coming in October (Trailer)

    It’s been about a year since the short first season of Castlevania, an animated series based on the video game franchise of the same name, made its bloody way to Netflix.

  • ‘Neopets Legends and Letters’ Mobile Game Coming Soon

    ‘Neopets Legends and Letters’ Mobile Game Coming Soon

    I’m beginning to get a bit of a Chicken Little complex on the subject of mobile games. I thought Pokemon GO! was going to lead to the death of civilization, and that Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp would finish off whatever roving bands of mutants that managed to survive the earlier game.

    ‘Scrabble’ Tile Lights Spell Good Decor

    Despite a love of words, I’ve recently begun to think of Scrabble as a game for my always expanding list of “theoretically fun” items. But the game still carries some deep, primal appeal, as evidenced by the fact that I think these officially licensed Scrabble Tile Lights from Firebox are pretty cool.
