They keep making videogame movies

Video game movies have a long and sordid history. After several fits, starts, Japan only releases and several movies that seemed only to vaguely understand the concept of what a video game was or even how a computer worked, the first true video game movie was released.   That movie was 1993's Super Mario Bros, and it set the tone for every video game movie that was to follow.     Throughout the 90's these travesties were continually churned out by studios only interested Read more [...]

Review: Guardians of The Galaxy

Marvel Studios has officially done the impossible. They've turned a little known, little loved comic book title like Guardians of The Galaxy into cinematic gold. And cinematic gold translates to big bucks for Marvel! By now, Marvel Studios has managed to keep up a pretty steady pace, barely faltering at all along the way.

Roll Out! Transformers: Age of Extinction Review

Going to see the new Transformers was actually a bit of a difficult choice. The simple fact is based on the previous movies I could pretty much predict this was going to be a pretty horrible movie in terms of story with a lot of action and robot on robot fighting action with explosions.

The shelves of game stores (both real and digital) are overrun with sequels, HD remakes and series reboots, and if a large publisher does take a chance on a new IP, any success will mean a sequel is right around the corner .

Hangover-Regenerate-Thumbs

Why a hangover is like regeneration for a Doctor Who fan.

Let me set the scene. Your well and truly into your third white wine spritzer for the evening and its only been three hours, so you decide it’s time to call it a night because you’ve got that important meeting first thing in the morning.  All too familiar scene yes? Hell no.  You hit the bottle, and when you hit the bottle, I’m talking hard, like trying to finish Binding of Isaac without hands hard. You slam whatever your poison is in stupid amounts disregarding the truth of the oncoming Read more [...]

My Top 5 Games EVER!

I’m not sure what compelled me to write this but I’ve been thinking about my top 5 games of all time, (or at least my current list) and thought I should list them out and discuss why they are my top 5. I should note these are my personal choices, if you think one of my top 5 is the worst game ever in your opinion then that is your choice, but these are mine. I’ll try not to be too long winded but let’s be honest, I may rant a bit and you will just have to bear with it if you want to read Read more [...]
