A New Challenger....

In The Middle Room, we play few video games. It isn't that we do not respect the medium: nothing could be further from the truth. It is only that our time is taken by other endeavours. You are far more likely to find us studying the sacred intricacies of the twelve vertices of a twenty sided die... or, perhaps the twenty vertices of the twelve sided (there are mysteries here mortals are not meant to know).

But do not mistake our preoccupation with role-playing games and comic books for indifference. All aspects of Geek are embraced within these walls.

When one face of the icosahedron is smeared, the entirety is marked. Likewise, we consider an attack against video games an attack against us all. And certainly nothing that geeks love has been attacked more in recent years that the infamous video game.

But fear not, for a warrior has risen. As is very often the case, Stephen King (iD&Di: .88) has shown us the way.
