Video Games Are Art Now – Get Used To It

by SeanPWallaceon 27/08/2016
Roger Ebert famously, in 2005, claimed that video games were and could never be art. I, along with many in those first generations who grew up with gaming as a core medium in our lives, vehemently disagreed and there were constant conversations on and offline on which games countered Ebert’s core claim. To many, it became […]

Home-grown Heroes of Irish Comics (Part 1)

by trekkiemarkon 23/08/2016
Back in 2007 I attended my first Comic Book Convention in Ireland. It was a rather underwhelming experience truth be told. I spent the greater part of the day trying the find the venue on the rain and windswept shores of Dublin Bay. After what seemed like an eternity I walked in to the modest […]

Fan Art Feature: Dr. Sam Beckett

by GuruMelon 27/06/2014
“And so Doctor Beckett finds himself leaping from life to life, striving to put right what once went wrong, and hoping each time that his next leap will be the leap home…” And we all know how that ended up! If a show is 20+ years old then I don’t think it really counts as […]
