Scarface Blu-ray

Scarface (Blu-ray)

Monday, September 26, 2011 No Comments

Full of iconic lines, a memorable character, and lots of drugs and violence, Scarface definitely holds a place in film history. Oh, and I forgot to mention the acting, which was fantastic, especially Al Pacino who delivered an outstanding performance as the power hungry Cuban, Tony Montana. And even though there were a few minor […]

Drive

Friday, September 23, 2011 No Comments

Leaving the theater, I was completely unsure whether or not I enjoyed Drive. Much like Refn’s last film I saw, Valhalla Rising, this movie was filled with long drawn out silences, and lengthy fixed camera shots. Furthermore, the violence was a tad excessive, and some of the plot points seemed highly unnecessary. However, after some […]

The Asskickers

Friday, September 23, 2011 No Comments

The Asskickers is a lovingly hand-drawn side-scrolling beat ‘em up title that brings to mind classics like the Ninja Turtles arcade game, Double Dragon and, to some extent, Golden Axe, only better looking versions thereof. Unfortunately, that’s basically where its positives end. The environment refresh rates are slow, the character animation is highly lacking and […]

Pillow Pets Coming to DS This Holiday Season

Thursday, September 22, 2011 1 Comment

I’m sorry. I just couldn’t pass up writing about something that sounds so hilarious. GameMill Entertainment announced today that it will be publishing a Pillow Pets video game for release during the holiday season. If you have no idea what Pillow Pets are, don’t worry, I didn’t either. They’re apparently a line of children’s pillows […]

Gears of War 3

Gears of War 3

Thursday, September 22, 2011 No Comments

If you’re a fan of the Gears saga, then the question of whether or not to purchase the third and (hopefully) final installment is a no brainer. For me, I’ve grown tired of shooters, but the Gears trilogy will always hold a place in my carnage craving heart. And Gears of War 3, with its […]

Contagion

Wednesday, September 21, 2011 No Comments

I was worried that after I left Contagion I wouldn’t want to touch anything, or anyone, ever again. Well, for better or for worse that didn’t happen. I mean, I’m not one to be that affected by what I see in movies, but if the movie was better, it may have had a stronger influence […]

Gears of War 3 Launch Party

Wednesday, September 21, 2011 No Comments

In this week’s video, L.E. and Nathan head down to Xbox Canada’s Gears of War 3 launch party in downtown Toronto. Without our audio equipment though, we had to figure out a different way to bring you the footage. Somehow, this is what we decided on. Click the link to… watch?

Star Fox 64 3D

Star Fox 64 3D

Tuesday, September 20, 2011 No Comments

A new installment in the Star Fox franchise would’ve been nice, but it being a game I so much enjoyed on Nintendo 64, Star Fox 64 3D will do just nice. And with its updated graphics, the 3D (which looked pretty good), solid controls, and Slippy’s annoying voice (which I’m glad they kept, if not […]
