We don't talk about comics enough here. While the list of comics I read regularly has dwindled significantly through the years, I still come across a few here and there that catch my eye. So it was when an advance copy of Dark Horse's Dragon Age: Magekiller #1 found its way into my hands. Dark Horse has done excellent work with Dragon Age in the past (especially the World of Thedas books) though it has mostly been confined to characters within the games. Magekiller marks their first venture with wholly original characters, but it is no less a success.

I haven't been as dedicated to Fallout 4 as many of my friends have, but I've spent enough time with it now that I feel comfortable weighing in on my experience. In the four hours that I've played, I've done my best to try out as many of the new features in the game. Despite my best effort though, my research has often been overshadowed by something.. buggier.

The latest of Cards Against Humanity's holiday things is now available. The 8 Sensible Gifts for Hanukkah promises exactly that for $15. Cards Against Humanity launched its first Holiday pack in 2012 and has run an increasingly complex series every year since. The eight gifts will ship over the month of December and are a complete mystery (as always).

I've been working to learn programming for a while. It's a slow process and has been really frustrating at many points. Learning to program may be difficult but it is such a powerful creative medium I think it's something everyone should learn, at least to some extent. There are tons of resources out there, from books and instructional videos to online courses like Harvard's CS50 (which I highly recommend). It wasn't until I came across Hack 'n' Slash that I'd thought about looking for a game centered on programming.

Fallout 4 is a week away. We've been really interested in what we've seen so far from Bethesda and can't wait to set foot in the wasteland ourselves. As we approach the release of the latest in the series, I thought it apropos to recall how we felt about Fallout 3. I'm one of the hard to please old fans of Fallout and while Fallout 3 was successful in many ways, it just didn't feel right to me. Anyway, read on for more on it. Here's hoping Fallout 4 lives up to some of the hype.
