Lane’s 2011 Video Game Gift Buying Guide

November 18, 2011 at 11:12 am | Posted in Video Games | 2 Comments

It's Christmas! In Mid-November!

It’s November 18th. I want to shoot myself for writing a holiday gift buying guide before Thanksgiving, but let’s face it. The radio stations are playing Christmas music, the TV stations are running holiday ads, and I’m pretty sure the neighbors have their tree up. This is one battle I’ve lost. Of course, it’s always good to get a head-start on what people might be looking for this year*. Or maybe you’re looking for some gift recommendations for yourself.

*Fruitcake is never the answer.

Here be Lane’s Official 2011 Video Game Gift Buying Guide, in which I’ll be recommending my favorite first-person shooters, action/adventure titles, and role-playing games. We’ll split each genre up into three categories: my recommendation for AAA title of the year, some budget picks, and some nostalgic gaming choices.

To the jump for the completely subjective, non scientific recommendations!

Happy Birthday, Alan Dean Foster

November 18, 2011 at 12:01 am | Posted in Birthday, Star Wars News | Leave a comment

Today Roqoo Depot wishes a very happy birthday to Alan Dean Foster, the very first author in Star Wars. It all began with Star Wars: From the Adventures of Luke Skywalker back in December 1976. Published by Ballantine Books, the first Star Wars novel gave unsuspecting sci-fi fans a glimpse of what was to come five months later.

Alan Dean Foster went on to write the first Star Wars Expanded Universe novel, Splinter of the Mind’s Eye. He also wrote The Approaching Storm set during the Clone Wars period.

Alan was born in New York City, New York. He is well known for his Commonwealth novels, the Spellsinger series, and his movie novelizations. If you would like to find out more about him, you can check out his official site.

Two new reviews for this week’s Star Wars comic releases. First up, Knight Errant: Deluge #4 ends the tension on Aquilaris with plenty of Kerra and Zodoh action. You can check out the review here.

Elsewhere the Invasion series ends the Revelations arc on a high note with Invasion: Revelations #5. Is Dray really a dark sider? Will the defenders on Shramar beat the Vong? We might not spill all the beans, but we’ll definitely give you a heads up on whether it’s worth checking out. You can see the full review here.
