Ghostbusters and the Rules of Reboots

Many people have already made up their minds about whether or not to see Ghostbusters, so I’ll spare you the traditional review. Rotten Tomatoes is awash with reviews, while IMDB is full of people who were panning this film back in […]

The Punisher (Jon Bernthal Edition)

Today, in what I never expected to become the latest in a series of posts that started with Dolph Lundgren and continue with Thomas Jane, I’ll be looking at Jon Bernthal’s portrayal of Frank Castle in season 2 of Marvel’s Daredevil. This review might […]

Oculus Rift impressions

After just a few days of playing with my new Oculus Rift, I can’t imagine any better future for video gaming. While I’m sure that I’ll continue to love my other, less immersive games, they just feel kind of old and mundane […]

Doom multiplayer is kinda meh.

The Doom open beta finished up this past weekend after several days of minimal fanfare. I don’t have the actual numbers of participants, but the majority of my personal friends weren’t aware that it was happening. With its time now […]

Destiny Crimson Days – Why do I do this to myself?

This week is a very special week in Destiny. The newest bit of micro-content has gone live in the form of Crimson Days. It’s like Bungie’s very own vicious valentine to the player base that still remains in their flagship […]
