The Grand Galactic Timeline: Galactic Chronicles

Galactic Chronicles is an ongoing space opera based on our multiplayer campaign in Paradox’s space grand strategy game, Stellaris. Events and characters, while embellished heavily in some cases, are based on actual events and characters encountered during gameplay. To help you better navigate the unfolding events of the galaxy, we’ve created the Grand Galactic Timeline, which can be found by scrolling down on the main Chronicles page.

The Case for Screen Time

Games have become an enormous part of the modern day for people of all ages. If you have kids, you probably ask yourself regularly how often they can or should consume this interactive media. But with new, shiny apps being developed daily, and computer, tablet, and phone screens becoming a more and more ubiquitous, how do you make those screens a positive part of their life, rather than a vortex of guilty pleasure? This was one of the big questions that I turned over and over as I attended the Denver Comic Con last weekend.

X-Men Apocalypse review: More Epic than Awful (but still not Awesome)

Some have called X-Men: Apocalypse the most epic X-Men movie yet. And it is an epic, in the sense of the ancient tradition of epic storytelling: long, archetypal tales with tons of characters, a simple plot, and little need for nuanced character development. Don’t get me wrong, I actually enjoyed the movie a great deal. But my low expectations given the mostly repetitive nature of X-Men movie plots weren’t exactly subverted.
