Review: Dogos Brings Classic Arcade Shoot Em Ups to the Modern Era

Cody Starcher Cody Starcher Review: Dogos Brings Classic Arcade Shoot Em Ups to the Modern Era

Flying through the air, breeze running through your hair, alien blood being wiped off your windshield… this is how I imagined the average day of my player in Dogos. An arcade-inspired Shoot ‘em Up (or SHMUP), Dogos is the creation of Buenos Aires developer OPQAM. While the game looks fantastic, and plays even better, a sub-par […]

Grant Walters Grant Walters Concert Review: The Chicks Soar and King Reigns at Nationwide Arena

The Dixie Chicks made a triumphant return to Columbus on their DCX MMXVI World Tour Friday night, bringing former resident and rising star Elle King for support

Review: Condado Columbus Commons

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Review: Condado Columbus Commons

Restaurant Review: Dessert Bowl

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Dessert Bowl

The Dessert Bowl is making a name for itself serving Asian dessert options that are… out of the ordinary in the Midwest. It offers a few Midwestern-ish options too, in the event you have friends who find the thought of new things to be intimidating. The joint is small and clean with table service and […]

Restaurant Review: Stav’s Diner

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Stav’s Diner

Right up next to the Bexley Centre Panera, a brand new eatery opened this summer in a neighboring strip mall. Stav’s Diner is right out of the pages of a story book, filled with crowds of eaters bellied up to the counter, and run by a clean-cut, two-man grill team with one bustling server. The […]
