Way Too Late


Dead Set: Big Brother is Eating Your Brains

Fun fact: I’m stingy with my Netflix ratings. Few movies or TV shows get five stars; most get three or four. A quick review of my rating activity shows that this year I gave 0 movies and 3 tv shows […]


Train to Busan: Making All Stops

Discovering Train to Busan was a happy accident, and for that I blame the Mountain Goats. This year, the Mountain Goats were playing Wicker Park Fest, and my wife desperately wanted to go see them perform. Too bad Wicker Park Fest happened during […]


The History of Future Folk: Space Worms and Banjos

The History of Future Folk, released in 2012, invites us to picture a scenario. You’re the best general alive. A comet is about to destroy everything you love. Your government has instructed you to find a replacement home planet. You traverse […]


The Killing Joke: Just as toxic when animated

Board game round-up: quick and breezy edition

Weekly board game nights at my local game shop have greatly expanded my repertoire of light and breezy tabletop games. With a library of hundreds of games both light and heavy, our local game shop offers me and my significant […]


PAX West 2016 Day One wrap up

PAX has once again returned to our home here in the Pacific Northwest. Suitably, the weather decided to welcome all of the visitors to our fine city with a torrential downpour so intense that PAX was opened 10 minutes early […]


Inversus – Frantic arcade shooter and strategic competition

Inversus is slated to be round two of the PAX West 2016 Omegathon, so I got my hands on a key for this little game from indie developer Hypersect. It’s fast, frantic, and strategic. Many outlets praise it as fun […]
