Rampage Review

Posted By on May 6, 2015

Rampage resembles a real-world telling of Postal. A man with nothing going for him out to get his revenge on the world. Unlike Postal, Rampage does not use humor to take away from the terror.

Steampunk Symposium 2016

Posted By on April 14, 2015

Due to the increased cost of tickets for the Steampunk Symposium in 2016, the Fortune’s Ember is likely going to be departing from the convention. It is not with a fond farewell, but with muttered words and angry fists shaken. In other news, this opens up money and time for other travel and conventions! We are looking into better, more enjoyable alternatives already, so keep an eye out for future updates!

I Hate Craigslist

Posted By on April 9, 2015

I hate craigslist. I always have, I always will. The people who think they are geniuses at negotiation thanks to watching Pawn Stars to the people who think you will mail things without getting payment, or the ones that expect you to spend $20 on gas to drive a $5 item to them, and waste an entire day doing it. Here is one of those stories.

Amiibos

Posted By on February 20, 2015

Amiibos are small toys, around 2″ tall, for the Nintendo Wii U and 3DS systems, that work as devices to unlock extra content in various games. They retail at $12.99 USD, and are rather fun little statues to have on your desk or entertainment console. The content they unlock is the equivalent of $0.99-2.99 DLC, but it is all fun… until you try to buy one.

Updates – Health, Stuff, Things

Posted By on December 16, 2014

Sorry for the lack of posting from your Most Glorious Captain. My health has not been the greatest for a while now. Anyways onto more important things!

I should be on the liver transplant list since it keeps diving further into the territory of trying to kill me.

It’s the holiday season! Don’t be surprised for some sort of festive Crimbo giveaway at some point on the site.

Not much in toy or game news, may post some stuff up about the Warlords of Draenor expansion for World of Warcraft.

Still no true sponsors for the Fortune’s Ember! Any interested parties can contact me. Looking for places that fit the content, toy companies and stores, anime places, and video game related things.

Two new cosplays done, I will be getting pictures of them up once the weather improves or I find a live scene to shoot at. I am also photographing for another website that I will not name here. Hope everyone is healthy and has a good winter.
