Show Report

Boston Called; 4203 Answered

Boston Calling 2015 was held on the fourth weekend of May, in the state capital’s City Hall Plaza. The show was stacked with acts I’d never heard of and a few I tried to like, but just couldn’t.  Two performers on the playbill, however, had me sold on Saturday: Marina and the Diamonds and St. Vincent, and they happened to be playing back-to-back (just in the wrong order).  There was no way I was passing on an opportunity to see two of the most talented artists in modern music.

How I Met the Ending, or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bombshell

We’ve all been emphasizing the wrong word. It wasn’t “how i met your mother” it was “how i met your mother.”

[SPOILER ALERT:] Before I go in depth, I should say this. I think “Last Forever” was TM, Totally Magnificent. Exploding High-Five!

Ted Mosby Gets Lawyered By BioShock’s Elizabeth

They all lead us to the same place...Schmosby

Elizabeth isn’t taking any of Ted Mosby’s moping;  dead wife or otherwise.

Oh, and SPOILER ALERT for both BioShock Infinite and How I Met Your Mother.


RyanMac420e3 – EPam Wars 121313

Hopefully This One Doesn't Get Cancelled Too

Welcome to 420e3 everybody!  The one time of year that the game industry gets together during June (ya know, ’cause GDC, PAX Prime, PAX East, TGS, etc. fill the rest of the calendar year) to announce their biggest and best surprises for the coming gaming year.

This year, it is my very special treat to announce the official, final, this-is-gonna-happen-or-you’ll-read-about-my-suicide-the-next-day, absolutely, actual release date for EPam Wars! 

The EPam Star falls this Fall!  December (Friday-the-)13th (had to get one last reference in), 2013! 

Be here (or wherever you want, really.  It’ll be around for a while…  at least until the C&D’s start rolling in…), at 12:01 EST on 12/13/13 for the release of the most anticipated RPG in gaming history.  9 years of toil, 8 years of blood, 7 years of sweat, 6 years of tears, and 5 years of procrasturbation have created an epic that you’ll be done with in a day!  (And I did it all without Kickstarter!)

Come see me in person (or email me your mailing address, if you’re feeling feisty) and I’ll give you a copy of the Collector’s Edition, which includes EPam Wars, EPam Wars:  Flash Mob! HD, a DVD featuring the original EPam Wars film (along with producer commentary, including a special guest appearance from EPam himself!), and a map of Woburnia signed by the bulk of the 4203 Game Studios team!

Emilie Autumn: The Asylum Tour: The Door

Emilie Autumn came to town this weekend, bringing with her The Bloody Crumpets on their 2011 Asylum Tour, The Door.  EA and the gang did not disappoint, as they put on a fantastic victoriandustrial stage show. Naturally, I was there, camera in tow, to bring you the scoop straight from the show floor. Read on for my full account.
