    Sam Maggs — Associate Editor

    Sam Maggs is a writer and televisioner, currently hailing from the Kingdom of the North (Toronto). Her first book, THE FANGIRL'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY will be out soon from Quirk Books. Sam’s parents saw Star Wars: A New Hope 24 times when it first came out, so none of this is really her fault.

  6. I Am Bread Is The Latest Simulator Game And You Are Literally A Piece Of Bread

    No loafing around in this game.

    Bossa Studios has announced the newest creation from their latest game jam (heh), I Am Bread, where, well... you're bread. Described as "[t]he beautiful story of one slice of bread's epic and emotional journey as it embarks upon a quest to become toasted," it looks like the perfect mix of Catlateral Damage and Octodad: Dadliest Catch. But what else would you expect from the same people who brought you Surgeon Simulator?

    Stop trying to make Google Glass happen.

    Google got super-wicked-cool artist FKA twigs to star in and direct this "concept film" showing off Google Glass and what it can do. Google Glass is both featured in and used to create the film. Which, yeah, no one's ever used Google Glass to create a wacky art film before, so that's cool. But also, will Google Glass ever be cool?

  9. Want To Make Alien: Isolation Less Mind-Numbingly Terrifying? Put The Alien In Squeaky Shoes!

    Almost as nonsensical as Catwoman in high heels!

    Our Editor in Chief Jill Pantozzi loved Alien: Isolation, but it (and I quote) "scared the shit out of her." Since I am a little horror movie baby and would never sleep again if I played it, I am seriously comforted by Neebs Gaming's terror-proof addition to Alien: Isolation - just throw really squeaky shoes on the alien. Problem solved. Fear neutralized.
