Topic: block

‘Curse’ words

A local amateur game designer debuts a retro-style game for Xbox Live.


Stephen Carradini
Every kid who has played a Nintendo gaming system knows about that part in that level where you have to make the character jump from single block to single block across lava/water/space/ nothingness. That section is universally reviled, due to the amount of time sunk into dying over and over.

Tower Block

England has a strange concept for rent control.


Rod Lott
Quietly — too quietly — Shout! Factory has been supplementing its lineup of tried-and-true cult classics with quirky genre offerings from overseas, like South Korea’s Quick, Denmark’s ID:A and now, albeit to a lesser degree, the UK’s Tower Block.

Pride 2014 Block Party, Arts Festival and Parade

OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

The last year has been one for the LGBTQ record books: Our state’s ban on same-sex marriage was deemed unconstitutional (pending appeal), three same-sex couples were issued licenses through the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes in November and The Boom’s Gospel Brunch still hasn’t been shut down by local officials. So get your tushes out to OKC Pride’s 2014 events, beginning with a Block Party 7 p.m. Friday and concluding with the 2014 Pride Parade 6 p.m. Sunday. It all goes down on, er, at the NW 39th Street Enclave around 39th Street and Pennsylvania Ave. Admission is free. Visit
