One night during the summer of 1997, Josh Look's cool uncle who owned a comic shop taught him how to play Magic the Gathering. The game set off his imagination in a way that he could not sleep that night, and he's been fascinated by games ever since. He spent many afternoons during his high school years skipping homework to play Dungeons & Dragons and paint Warhammer minatures, going on to discover hobby board games in his early 20s. He's been a writer for Fortress Ameritrash and is the creator and co-host of the geek culture podcast, The Wolfman's Lounge. He enjoys games that encourage a heavy amount of table talk and those that explore their themes beyond just their settings.

Fortress of Horror 02 - The Babadook
Gamer Culture JL Josh Look Updated October 01, 2015 4503   0
Ba ba...DOOK DOOK DOOOOOUUUUHHHHK I can count on one hand the number of horror movies made in the last 15 years (though it's probably more than that) that I actually like. After watching The Babadook, that count is still going on one hand though it is one higher. This is a movie about a widow, Amelia, and her deeply trouble son, Samuel. The kid has nightmares, is aggressive, and generally not well liked by anyone around him other than his mother. The film does a fantastic job of...
Fortress of Horror 01 - The Monster Squad
Gamer Culture JL Josh Look Updated September 25, 2015 3853   0
Everything you always wanted to know about werewolves but were always afraid to ask... I grew up on the Universal Monsters. While the other boys on my street were talking up Jason and Freddy, I was tuning into AMC every Saturday afternoon to watch the black and white classics. Eventually it seemed like I had seen them all. So on one Friday afternoon sometime in the early 90s, my dad, brother and I went down to the video store in search of anything to watch besides Dracula for the 40th time....
Halloween Fortress of Horror 01 - Things That Scared Me as a Kid
Gamer Culture JL Josh Look Updated September 03, 2015 2005   0
I love Halloween. Not the overprotected, sterile thing it's become for kids and certainly not the excuse to get drunk and dress "sexy" that it means for many adults, but the memory of Halloween from my youth and the event I've made of it in recent years. I'll carve several pumpkins up, decorate the house with as much spooky shit that I can find, and indulge in copious amounts of horror movies and Count Chocula. I'm sharing my excitement over the season this year with the Fort, largely taking a look which horror movies I'm watching,...

Game Name
If you're a hobby gamer, you can break down mass market games. Stick with me here, this isn't going in a "These Games of Ours" direction. The vast majority of it is stuff a hobby gamer isn't going to give two craps about. Maybe stuff you'd play with your kids, but anything "adult" would mean dumb party games and bad liscensed games to make a quick buck. Then there are those rare games like Heroscape or Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Star Wars Epic Duels that are totally accesible for the...
