I’m still reading Can You Survive the Zombie Apocalypse by Max Brallier. This is some seriously good stuff. The writing is great, ranging from explicit gore and violence to irreverent snarkiness and mild sexual suggestion. My nameless character has survived a few times and died a lot more, in a variety of ways that I […]

So, I went to re-play Beneath Nightmare Castle and I lasted ONE STINKIN’ PAGE before I was overpowered and sacrificed to some horrible god or another. Totally weak, man. I’m gonna cheat here. Let’s rewind that dark adventure music soundtrack I was playing, and just go back and pick that other option. My stats: 9 […]

YOU become Jimmy El Camino, and you are no hero. Jimmy El Camino was an angry boy with a taste for blood. He stayed that way as a soldier in Desert Storm and beyond, until his drinking got him kicked out. A string of broken-up relationships, a fancy car that he wrecked for fun. Then […]

For the last week or so I’ve been reading “Can You Survive the Zombie Apocalypse?” by Max Brallier. This is some great stuff. It’s not really a game book, in that there is no game component such as randomness, inventory, or personal statistics. It’s “just” a choose-a-path book. I have been feeling fairly low energy […]

It’s the HP Lovecraft Film Festival here in Portland, and I’ve been playing Nightshift. I’m an E.R. doctor, and woke up here in the nightmare version of my hospital: run-down, just plain wrong in places where the furnishings have reverted to something from the 19th century, flooded with water and mold, and populated with gnomes […]

YOU became the hero of Mortvania back in FF38 Vault of the Vampire. Good job on killing the evil vampire lord who was terrorizing the land. But in true Hammer Films fashion, some blood dripped onto the ashes of Count Heydrich and he’s as good as new… and mad as hell. But this time he […]

YOU become the hero of Mortvania… Wait, what? Who names a place Mortvania? Oh, the vampire who runs the place. Yeah, the local Count is a vampire (aren’t they all?) and the village lives in terror as they’re sucked dry one by one. A sad story, but when you hear that the latest kidnapping was […]

YOU become the hero of Stayng Island, when a necromancer named Mortis (of course) comes back from the dead, not only building an army of undead from the corpses of his victims, but also making deals with the local pirates to raise hell and pillage in addition to taking slaves to be turned into zombies.

YOU become a hapless chump when your car breaks down. In a move straight out of Rocky Horror Picture Show, you see a castle with a telephone line and go ask for help. Unfortunately, the castle is not populated with singing, dancing transexuals and transvestites (that’d be awesome), but a murderous earl and butler, a […]
