Episode 78 – Goth Power Ranger

How can you not dig this Power Rangers de-boot?

Dying Light “My Apocalypse Edition” announced

I really enjoyed Dying Light and I absolutely recommend it to anyone that digs first person action games. However, I think the guys at Techland have taken a few too many hits from whatever they like smoking out there in Poland. They’ve just announced that starting on February 25th, they

Way Too Late Reviews: Mockingjay, Part 1

I’m such a cynic when it comes to movies. I never believe that certain things are done in the name of artistic integrity. I’m quicker to believe that some Hollywood mogul made X or Y decision for money, rather than for art. So when it was announced that The Hunger Games:

Forgotten toys of the 80s

When people of the Gen X persuasion look back on the 80s in a nostalgic fashion, I feel like there’s a sort of filter that lets all of the shiny and exciting stuff through while conveniently forgetting all of the weird, obscure, and sometimes downright crappy things. And so, I

Episode 77 – Back to the Future

We’re all in a reminiscing mood apparently!

50 Shades of Pretty Woman

Pre-tl;dr: Yea this movie is bad, but with a few tweaks it could have been good. Even so, it isn’t the painful-to-watch monstrosity the source material would have you believe. You’ve seen this movie before. The high-powered businessman who sweeps the girl off her feet? Pretty Woman. The trick with

Dying Light part 2 – A city full of stories

Having now spent over 60 hours in game and finally finished the main quest line, I have to say that any discussion of the story needs to be broken up into the main and side quests. These aspects of the game are so disparate that they feel like two complete

Episode 76 – Spider-Man

We have wanted Spiderman all along in the MCU, and on this podcast we are so jazzed that Sony has seen the $$$ light!

Way Too Late Reviews: The Illusionist

I was 19 when I first became aware of twin films. Two movies, with similar themes, written and released by two different studios in the same year. My introduction to the concept was Dante’s Peak and Volcano, two movies about volcanic eruptions, both released in 1997. Since then audiences have their pick of

Do you have to play Origins and Dragon Age 2 to play Inquisition?

Do you have to play Origins and Dragon Age 2 to play Inquisition? I have not been shy at all about my love of the Dragon Age series. It hits all the fantasy buttons for me and told me a story that sucked me in… When Dragon Age 2 first

Episode 75 – The Closer Coaster

It’s all about the TV and movies this week on the Dorkadia podcast – From Flashdance to GhostBusters, we’ve got it all!

Dying Light part 1 – 28 hours later

Last week I got my hands on a copy of Techland‘s newest release, Dying Light. It’s a first person zombie apocalypse / survival horror / parkour running mash-up with some light RPG elements thrown in for good measure. I’ve clocked well over 30 hours in it so far and it’s

Way Too Late Reviews: Interstellar or Why This Movie is More Enjoyable Than 2001

Warning: this post contains opinions. If I have a movie manifesto, it’s this: I watch movies to be entertained with intriguing characters and a compelling storyline. The story doesn’t have to be big, but it should be interesting. I should care about the characters. I should want to find out

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Way Too Late

I have been inspired by the recent way too late movie reviews around here and I’ve decided to apply a similar approach to games. This certainly has nothing to do with finding a way to justify the 139 hours that I’ve already spent in the game in the slightest. (Okay,

Episode 74 – Dying Light

Parkour, weapons, and zombies – oh my! We dig into Dying light, and the amusing texts from a friend high on pain meds.

What My Impostor Syndrome Feels Like

I, like many others, suffer from Impostor Syndrome – where in some facet of my life, I cannot internalize my accomplishments (for me it’s playing table top RPGs which is one of the silliest things to have panic attacks about). There is something that is always making me afraid that

Way Too Late Reviews: Back to the Future, Part III

Part I here Part II here The third movie of a trilogy never gets any respect. At best your movie is a mildly satisfying (if slightly silly) conclusion to the story arc (Return of the Jedi or Army of Darkness); at worst, your movie is The Godfather III. And that’s if your third movie

Throne of Atlantis

Along side my well known fear of zombies and my love of Batman, we often joke about my defending Aquaman as a superhero that deserves a second shot. So when Throne of Atlantis was announced in the Justice League: War series, I was already on board. Putting the new 52

Episode 73 – 99 Elixers

Dailys are like elixers – you need to stock them up and NEVER USE THEM BECAUSE YOU MIGHT NEED THEM LATER. So you beat the boss, and you still have 99 elixers! That said, we covered much more this week than our need to not use our daily powers!

Way Too Late Reviews: Back to the Future, Part II

Part I here Part III here There’s an old adage among novelists: you have an eternity to write your first novel and 6 months to write your second. Writing team Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale spent four years working on the script for the first Back to the Future, polishing the draft as

Alien: Isolation

I may be a bit late to the Alien party, but I am damn glad that I got on board with this franchise. I had never watched any of the movie quadrilogy, nor had I really played any of the games based on them. I was in no way a
