Finally a Song Not About a Boy!: a review of 1989

Finally a Song Not About a Boy!: a review of 1989 0

Were you looking for a T-Swift album without songs about her love life? Well, sorry to disappoint, but maybe synthesizers will help. Swift’s transition to pop was not exactly abrupt. With pop songs like “We Are Never Getting Back Together” coming from her last album, it seemed as if the country star had progressively been moving(…)

So let’s talk about Destiny…

So let’s talk about Destiny… 0

Before you read this you should know that this is not a Destiny review; at least not in the sense you’d expect. Understand that I’m not even claiming to have come close to finishing what Destiny has to offer — and be wary of anyone who has. Instead, this is more of a commentary of(…)

Review – Oddworld: New n’ Tasty

Review – Oddworld: New n’ Tasty 0

More than just a re-release, Oddworld: New ’n Tasty is a complete reimagining of the original Abe’s Odyssey and the result is the absolute best version of the game to date. Long time fans of the series will appreciate the love given to the aging formula while those new to Oddworld get the game we imagined we would so long ago. Some of the controls have been changed, and not for the better but don’t let that stop you — those new to the series and those who have experienced the game before should check out this love letter to the Oddworld series.

“The Walking Dead” – A (4.16) Season Finale Review

“The Walking Dead” – A (4.16) Season Finale Review 1

Well, that was…violent. If you haven’t seen or read about the episode yet, I feel compelled to put a trigger warning here that it contains attempted sexual assault of a minor. If that’s in any way difficult for you to watch and/or read about, I’d be careful about what you consume regarding this episode. The(…)

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug review

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug review 0

It’s a well-worn joke that Peter Jackson doesn’t know how to make a short movie. All of his major films have clocked in at 2.5 hours or longer (that’s before the special release director’s cut, and the DVD extras). He’s also a founding member of the Christopher Nolan All-Stars, a.k.a. Directors who Have Too Much(…)

“The Walking Dead” – Indifference (4.04) Episode Review

“The Walking Dead” – Indifference (4.04) Episode Review 0

“Indifference” is a fitting title for this week because that pretty much sums up how I feel about it. There were moments I loved, don’t get me wrong, but as a whole it’s certainly not the best hour The Walking Dead writers have given us. After last week’s tension-filled quarantine drama, it was an abrupt(…)

Lego: Marvel Super Heroes — The Blast Review

Lego: Marvel Super Heroes — The Blast Review 0

Some of my favorite moments in comics have always been the ones where heroes from different books interact with each other. Whether it be Spider-man and Daredevil hanging out in Hell’s Kitchen or The Fantastic Four and Captain America teaming up to take on an enemy threatening New York; there’s just something about knowing that all of the Marvel Universe is connected. Perhaps that’s why I loved Lego: Marvel Super Heroes as much as I did, no game (at least since 2006’s Marvel: Ultimate Alliance) has managed to collect this many heroes and villains together and be this successful. Yes, Travelers Tale’s latest brick adventure may seem familiar on the outside but it’s one of the most charming and unique games you’ll play all year.

Beyond: Two Souls — The Blast Review

Beyond: Two Souls — The Blast Review 1

If David Cage is an artist, his medium is the dual shock controller. The much talked about game director and lead on games like Heavy Rain and Indigo Prophecy (read our interview with him from E3 here) uses Sony’s controller like no one else in the world. Combined with his emotional scripts Cage is able(…)

NHL 14: The Blast review 1

If you’re going to make fighting a focal point of your hockey game, you’re going to want to get someone who knows how to throw a punch and EA got some of the best – they got the Fight Night guys. NHL 14 is easily the hardest hitting hockey sim you’ll ever play; the hits(…)
