Splinter Cell: Conviction

Tuesday, April 27, 2010 No Comments

I was never really such a fan of the Splinter Cell series, for I cannot stand the stealth oriented game play, but Splinter Cell: Conviction was quite spectacular. The only thing I will say about the story is that Sam Fisher is trying to find his daughter’s murderer. The graphics were fantastic, the story telling […]

Guitar Hero: Smash Hits

Tuesday, April 27, 2010 4 Comments

Seriously Activision? Did you think that re-releasing a bunch of old and popular tracks from your first few guitar-only Guitar Hero games, slapping in some fresh “story” animations and using the latest version of your core software, letting up to four people play, would warrant Smash Hits as a brand new, full-fledged, full price game? […]

Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros’ Treasure

Monday, April 26, 2010 No Comments

Zack & Wiki may look like a simple children’s puzzle game because of its cartoon design and simple point-and-click controls, but by no means is it easy in terms of difficulty. This is a full-fledged mind-bending puzzler for people looking for a serious challenge. You play as rookie pirate, Zack, and Wiki, his magical flying […]

Everybody's Fine

Everybody’s Fine

Monday, April 26, 2010 No Comments

If you are like me and thought that Everybody’s Fine was going to be a comedy, you were wrong. This story about a relatively old father and his attempt to reconnect with his children makes for an extremely heartrending movie, which gets progressively sadder as the movie develops, but it has some cute and moving […]

Kick-Ass

Friday, April 23, 2010 No Comments

Kick-Ass is supposed to be the story of an average comic book-loving teenager who decides to become a superhero, still knowing that he has no powers of his own. It should be called Hit Girl though, because while it presents the story from his perspective, the core of the story surrounds her from about the […]

Silverchair To Make Rock Band Debut In Next Week’s Minuscule Update

Friday, April 23, 2010 No Comments

Harmonix announced next week’s Rock Band Music Store update today, and it’s a little one compared to usual. The update only features three singles, Thunderbirds Are Go! By British pop-rock group Busted, Again by Flyleaf and Tomorrow by Silverchair, which will mark the Australian trio’s Rock Band debut. The tracks will be available for Xbox […]

Kick-Ass

Kick-Ass

Friday, April 23, 2010 No Comments

What started off as a promising jaunt into the life of a nerdy teenager with fantasies of being a superhero, quickly changed to just another run-of-the-mill superhero movie. The funny part is that Kick-Ass set itself up as being a realistic take on comics and superheroes. Did they forget that they were initially going for […]

16 Blocks

Thursday, April 22, 2010 No Comments

In 16 Blocks, Bruce Willis plays a past-his-prime, alcoholic cop assigned to escort a blabber-mouth witness from his precinct to the courthouse, a mere 16 city blocks, so he can deliver his testimony. On the way though, someone tries to take the witness out, and the rest of the film is spent with Willis and […]

The Ugly Truth

The Ugly Truth

Thursday, April 22, 2010 No Comments

The Ugly Truth, which was essentially about two conflicting personalities falling in love, was romantically admirable, to a point. It was about the time where both main characters did a complete 180 in their personalities that my appreciation started crumbling. Gerard Butler started off as this callous misogynist who firmly opposed emotional love, then suddenly […]

Crazy Heart

Crazy Heart

Wednesday, April 21, 2010 No Comments

Crazy Heart, a movie about a hard drinking, hard smoking, washed up musician, was crazy bad, crazy boring and crazy dumb. The one thing I enjoyed about this film was Jeff Bridges. He did an incredible acting job, but that’s about it. The story didn’t make much sense, mostly because very little was explained. We […]
