I’ve been talking about wanting to play Batman: Arkham Knight on the podcast for a long time. I was a big fan of the first two games in the series and I was quite eager for Rocksteady to take the reins once again and finish their trilogy. So when it
5 Step Survival guide: PAX Prime for introverts We’re coming upon convention season, an incredibly fun but mentally taxing time of year for the local introverted gamer contingent! I like many other people am very introverted and even panic when it comes to large gatherings like PAX. I have a
Until today, I’d never wondered where the title The Lost Boys came from. When I was younger I watched The Lost Boys hundreds of times and never gave the title a second thought. Why shouldn’t the movie be called The Lost Boys? After all, the anthem of my generation had the similarly named apropos-of-nothing title “Smells Like
We’re still digesting E3 and discussing some table top games, because we hate time sleep and money.
There was a lot shown at E3 this year, and some super rad Indie games I’m excited to try! Here are my favorite indie games from E3 2015:
I don’t need to tell you how good Netflix’s Daredevil is. Plenty of others before me have already done that. I’m going to talk instead about my favorite character, one who best represents how a slight character change made in the adaptation from comics to TV can make all the difference in elevating that
With season 2 of Star Wars Rebels just around the corner (June 20th 2015) I wanted to give a run down for those who haven’t watched this series yet. Aside from Dragon Age, Star Wars is my fandom, so I know it might not hit your buttons if you refuse
This week I sit down with Megan and Hannah as we discuss some of our favorite standout moments from this year’s E3 press conferences. We couldn’t attend the show in person, but watching on Twitch and YouTube is almost the same. Just more comfortable, but with less swag. We have
A few days ago, during their E3 conference, Bethesda announced a stand alone mobile game for the Fallout universe called Fallout Shelter. Since then, I haven’t been able to leave my phone alone for more than a few minutes at a time. Seriously, I can’t ignore it or these little
Like many people my age, I collected GI Joe action figures as a kid. What set my collection apart was that it consisted entirely of Cobra action figures. I wasn’t interested in the Joes; I loved Cobra and wanted to collect all their toys. Destro, Cobra Commander and the rest
I am happy to say that we were wrong, at the time of the recording, we thought the Kickstarter campaign for Through The Woods was not going to be successful – it turns out they made it, and we will eat some crow! (Or Poutine. You know, whatever)
Don’t mind us, we’ve started streaming our podcasts on twitch, and we’re still getting used to talking to a camera! Are we twitching?
An iconic film is usually influential for a reason. Jaws was a summer blockbuster at a time when no one was making summer blockbusters. Star Wars was a successful space opera at a time when no one made successful space operas. The Matrix was successful for its innovative fight scenes, with the now-famous “bullet time” sequences.
I just finished playing through the demo of Through the Woods from indie studio Antagonist and it’s the best atmospheric horror game that has yet to be made. I jumped more times than I’m comfortable admitting over the course of the fifteen minute demo. I wouldn’t have thought that a third person perspective
I am not as big into board games as some – but I’ve picked a few favorites to play with my friends, and Hanabi quickly rose to the top. My conflicted feelings about Cards Against Humanity are enough for another article, but it cemented what kinds of game scratch that
This movie. …I mean, holy shit. THIS MOVIE. Let me back up. I haven’t seen any of the Mel Gibson Mad Max movies. Never got around to it. Further, I hadn’t planned on watching Mad Max: Fury Road. (Editor’s Note: We will correct this next time Tim is in Seattle for a Dorkadia
Sorry for our delay in posting the podcast – we continue to discuss and dissect the latest episodes in Game of Thrones. We have MANY opinions on Game of Tropes – what do you think?
Continuing a beloved book series after an author has passed away is a tricky thing. Compare the post-Ian Fleming Bond novels to the 14 entries in the Dune franchise. Critics may appreciate the new work, as in the case of Kyle Mills, who continued the Bourne series after Robert Ludlum’s death. Or, they may decry
If you listened to this week’s podcast (and you should), then you’re aware that I’m not a veteran player of the Witcher games. I had heard of them, certainly, but I had never found the time to fit another long RPG series into my gaming diet. But with all the hype
They really set the tone at the start of the game, Witcher 3 Going For Your Junk!
That Seems Really Unlike You: AKA – The way Unbowed Unbent Unbroken SHOULD have happened Like many people watching Game of Thrones, I am less than impressed with Sansa’s Season 5 arc, both as an adaptation and as a story in of itself. After spending enough time saying “And they
