At Otakon 2016 we interviewed the Vice-Chair and Ex-Chair of Otakon and talked about Otakon’s time in Baltimore and what’s to come in just a few months when Otakon moves to Washington D.C. to a bigger Convention Center. Have a listen, and enjoy!
The first Panel I went to at Otakon was titled Toonami: Celebrating 20 Years of being A Golden Generation. For those that do not know Toonami is an animation block on Cartoon Network that currently airs on Saturday night from Midnight to 6am. This panel explains the history of this program and for many of us various fond memories which this article will mostly be about. Continue reading Otakon Panel #1: Toonami

As I turned on my PS4 and went through my digital games I realized something, the convenience of these digital games is awesome but, at the same time I realized how lazy it has made me. Just by hitting a simple button on my controller I am able to change games on the fly. Switching from Dying Light to DOA in a mere 5 seconds without ever leaving my couch. Its a beautiful thing
Hello ATG fans, Jake here, with my third Gaming Resolution update. This update is about a week late, which means it will be a jam packed article!
First up, a discussion on the progress of my video gaming. As some of you may remember, I was playing my way through Might and Magic 3. While I enjoyed the beginning of the game, around level 13 I hit an awkward point where even with internet walkthroughs I could not figure out where to go next. The game is completely open world; however, the dungeons do not change with your level, meaning certain dungeons are impossible to beat until certain levels. I actually like this aspect of the game, but the game was designed insanely difficult, with dungeon monsters being ridiculously easy, then through the next door a monster would one hit knock out a party member. This design has made it impossible to really predict when I have found appropriate places to advance in the game.
