Bungie Studios and Microsoft Game Studios announced the release of the Noble Map Pack for Halo: Reach today. The multiplayer map pack is the first downloadable content pack for Halo: Reach, and it features three new environments for players to go crazy killing each other, capturing flags and just make a general explosive mess of […]

Vanquish

Vanquish

Tuesday, November 30, 2010 1 Comment

Yet another game where Russia is the villain, Vanquish’s generic story and dull writing leave much to be desired. There are also quite a few issues. For example, on the occasions where you’re thrown into first person mode, your character can walk through NPCs as though they aren’t there, bosses are constantly rehashed, and some […]

A Week with Windows Phone 7 – Calling, Contacts, Texting and Camera

Monday, November 29, 2010 1 Comment

This week, courtesy of Microsoft, I’m taking a look at the latest operating system for mobile phones, Windows Phone 7. Every day this week, I’ll be discussing different features of Windows Phone 7 and how it both works and feels overall. I’ve had one of the models for a couple of days now and I’m […]

Tangled

I was a little skeptical going into Tangled. You see, I love classic Disney cartoons like Aladdin, The Lion King, and what have you, but not many Disney cartoon musicals have come out that have even come close to the awesomeness of those ones in quite some time. However, though this melodic animated twist on […]

Yesterday was a sad day for movie fans across the world. Leslie Nielsen, star of comedy classics Airplane!, The Naked Gun series, and Police Squad!, passed away at the age of 84. Nielsen, a comedic legend (and a Canadian), worked to break boundaries and create new definitions of satire during his 50+ year career. For […]

Toy Story 3

Monday, November 29, 2010 No Comments

Review I love almost all of the Disney/Pixar films (Cars was alright), but it seems like there’s some special part of the Pixar team’s creative conscience that comes out for the Toy Story films. Maybe it’s the mix of pleasant childhood memories brought back to life, the perspective the films present, the action-packed ride the […]

Steam Does Black Friday and DLC Deals Windows and Mac Style

Friday, November 26, 2010 No Comments

While we may not play or review PC games anywhere near as often as we do console or handheld titles, that doesn’t mean that PC gamers don’t deserve some Black Friday love as well. Thankfully, we got word from one of our readers (since you don’t have a username, we can’t name you in the […]

127 hours

127 Hours

Friday, November 26, 2010 1 Comment

Similar to Buried, the majority of 127 Hours was focused around one actor. However, though I reasonably enjoyed this movie, I think that Buried was, in comparison, superior. This true story about a hiker whose arm get’s trapped by a large rock had its ups, like James Franco’s fantastic acting, and some beautiful cinematography, but […]

Xbox Live and Playstation Network Get Black Friday Deal Happy, Not Quite Crazy

Friday, November 26, 2010 No Comments

You know what the great thing about amazing deals on downloadable content is? You don’t have to worry about somebody getting trampled because the store might run out of stock, because it can’t! Earlier this week I mentioned that Xbox Live is running a week-long Black Friday sale, and that Xbox Live’s Major Nelson, would […]
