The Clone Wars

How is it that we’ve gone so long without talking about The Clone Wars? I fell in love with this series in 2008, because it was what salvaged my plummeting love of Star Wars after the prequel came out. Set up as a kids show, it told the story we

A Tale of Three Carries

Girl throws tampons at other girl, girl asks boy to take other girl to the prom, other girl gets pig blood dumped on her head, other girl goes on telekinetic rampage. While it might not be a tale as old as time, Stephen King’s debut novel Carrie resonated with audiences upon its

Tower of Guns – Endless FPS Bullet Hell

I just finished a Tower of Guns shooting spree on Xbox One and I have to say that it’s liberating to have a pure FPS to jump into whenever I want. It’s a single player experience perfectly suited for people that want  to get the biggest guns, blast their way through level after

Jaws of Hakkon DLC

I’m a fan girl of Dragon Age, that is no secret, so take it with a grain of salt when I tell you, you should play the DLC for DragonAge Inquisition: Jaws of Hakkon. For $15 it is more of the game that I loved, that fits in if you’ve

Way Too Late Reviews: Primer

This isn’t so much of a review as it is a mind cleanse. After wasting two hours of my life last week watching The Room when I could have been playing Hearthstone, I decided to focus this week’s Way Too Late review on one of the best independent movies of the last

Our ode to some bad TV, and making a new meaning to twitterpated!

Way Too Late Reviews: The Room

Trailer First thing’s first: a movie called The Room should be about a room. This film is not about a room. It’s really about one man’s ego and his obsession with making a movie when he has no business being anywhere near a camera. But I doubt calling it Tommy Wiseau’s Narcissistic, Masturbatory Attempt

Preview: Spellweaver TCG

I’ve recently spent a bit of time playing around in an upcoming digital card game called Spellweaver. Much like the highly popular Hearthstone, it’s set to be released as a free to play game that allows for purchases of card packs using in-game currencies. Unlike Hearthstone’s rigid class system, Spellweaver

Way Too Late Reviews: X-Men Days of Future Past

I’ve been away from the X-men film franchise for several years. Blame Brett Ratner, who made a total mess of X-Men: the Last Stand. Between the botch-up of the Dark Phoenix storyline in The Last Stand and the lousy portrayals of both Deadpool and Gambit in X-Men: Origins, I stopped watching X-Men movies. When the

Hardware review – Skullcandy SLYR

I didn’t realize that my game experience was lacking until I put on this headset. I’ve been playing my Xbox One on a regular stereo TV with the standard Microsoft headset plugged in for over a year now. I was getting a pretty decent experience out of that and it

The JCU: Joss Whedon’s Comic Universe

Nerds know heartbreak. Our favorite TV shows get cancelled (Star Trek), beloved characters die (Terminator), beloved comic properties turn to shit on screen when artistic vision clashes with the movie business (X-Men: The Last Stand, Spider-Man 3). It seems like there’s a hundred ways to ruin a geeky property and only

Trivia Time! We started of this week talking about terrible prank videos; (note, I would die if this happened to me)

Silent Night, Unholy Night

Just who were the wise men, really? Sure, I knew the story. I was raised Lutheran. Three wise men appear in the middle of the night, offering gold, frankincense and myrrh to Joseph and Mary to celebrate the birth of baby Jesus. But what happened next? It was a question I never

Hand of Fate – My new deckbuilding obsession

Unlike Jon, I did not start playing Hand of Fate in early access. It looked pretty cool, but I’m not a super big player of roguelike games. However, when I was offered an Xbox One review copy, I absolutely had to take a chance on it. Now I can’t stop
