People play games on iOS devices. People read on iOS devices. Yet meshing these options have never seemed a popular option before. Steve Jackson's Sorcery pulls me back to my childhood hobby of reading Choose Your Own Adventure books while retaining the lush immersion of today's media.
Based on a gamebook series originally published back in my childhood in the Ancient Era that was 1983, Sorcery was originally a four-part book series similar to Choose Your Own Adventure books, although it was a lot more in-depth. Sorcery allowed you to choose your path through an adventure not only by direction but also by profession: you could choose to follow the warrior or the spellcaster's path. What's more, the four books in the series could be read as a whole, "saving" your progress as you went.
Wizards of the Coast, known for their Dungeons and Dragons books, are currently publishing the Sundering series. I’m two books into the series and I’ve already posted my review of The Companions - Book I, this article is a review of The Godborn - Book II, and I just downloaded The Adversary - Book III. So, is it worth it to continue reading this series?
Over the past few months, Goozex has implemented slow and steady promotions and features to the site that have made the trade counter steadily rise. These days, you’ll find a wonderfully diverse selection of fairly modern titles in the Goozex Exchange - the Goozex version of an auction. It is truly a great time to be on Goozex: especially now that auctions include console and accessories.
The Goozex exchange is booming. There are a ton of great games and movies up for grabs. The recent addition of accessories has got this gamer thinking what will be traded next?
The gang's all here and we talk Black Friday, Pokemon, Battlefield, game delays and more!
Here at GoozerNation, we've followed Psychotic Psoftware from creation through development and release of Power Up. Now that it's out, I thought it would be beneficial for everyone to see a retrospective discussion about how the process went, whether it's worth continuing after the initial attempts, and generally what it's like going from "dude at home making little fun programs" to "I have a game on Xbox 360."
Before I drop the interview and questions, please remember that right now the game is on sale for $1, and will soon go up to full price, so get it while you can (or wait with the intentional purpose of giving the developer more money). The soundtrack is available at Bandcamp, and the more you give it five-star ratings on Xbox the more prominent it will get on the marketplace! Help Psychotic Psoftware out all you can!
With no further ado.....
This week has been an adventure. To bring you up to speed, my family has medical issues that require healthcare that the current insurance plans cannot cover. We are low on funds, and my work pays 100% of my insurance but I need about 95% of my paycheck to cover my family. It's been suggested that we try for Medicaid, but my wife has looked at the specialists she needs due to a major medical issue that effects her life every day now, and NONE of them take Medicaid. It would be detrimental for my family to be stuck on Medicaid.
Now, why, you ask, is this gaming website reporting on this issue? Well, as a gamer, and knowing I am not the only gamer in the world old enough to worry about insurance, I figured that my adventure would be worth sharing, particularly in the fact that I could relate nearly every step of the way to a video game. Given the confusing nature of the new laws, I present to you the Gamer's Guide to Obamacare!
