Sarah's Key

Sarah’s Key

Wednesday, November 30, 2011 No Comments

With a handful of emotionally wrenching sequences, and some very strong acting, specifically Kristin Scott Thomas and Mélusine Mayance, Sarah’s Key did offer some rather affecting moments. However, I don’t think the two stories portrayed meshed perfectly. Each one on their own carried a good deal of promise (especially Mayance’s plotline), but being split between […]

Ubisoft Releases Fresh Content for Rocksmith

Wednesday, November 30, 2011 No Comments

It’s been just over a month since Ubisoft released Rocksmith, its self-improvement guitar title (and partial answer to the Pro mode in Harmonix Music Systems’ Rock Band), and the game has had a pretty strong start. As with Rock Band, Ubisoft is occasionally releasing downloadable content track packs for Rocksmith, with new and classic hits […]

PETA Occupies Raccoon Suits

Wednesday, November 30, 2011 No Comments

In this week’s video, L.E. and Nathan discuss PETA’s so-called parody of Super Mario Bros. and the game’s inclusion of the Tanooki flying suit. The whole thing has driven us positively mad, and we’re not taking it anymore! Click the link to watch!

Don’t Worry, We’ll Think of a Title

Tuesday, November 29, 2011 No Comments

Don’t Worry, We’ll Think of a Title, with its jocular tones, slapstick comedy, and camp delivery, had the ambiance of a sitcom from the 50’s/60’s. All that was missing was a laugh track and you’d have an inferior version of The Honeymooners. Not that it was unfunny, it did actually have some humorous moments, but […]

Digital Reality Preps Family-Friendly Arcade Racer

Tuesday, November 29, 2011 1 Comment

Those crazy Hungarians are at it again! This week, the folks at Digital Reality announced that they are getting back into the racing genre once more, but this time, they’ll be hitting the ground instead of the air (and that’s good, because solid things are easier to hit). The team will be releasing a family-friendly […]

Nintendo Releases Two 3DS System and Game Bundles, More to Come

Monday, November 28, 2011 No Comments

Clearly I either missed this announcement completely, or the guys over at examiner.com have some special friends at Nintendo (and I have a feeling it’s the former), because I don’t recall hearing or reading that Nintendo would be releasing two new 3DS system and game bundles this past weekend. One is a special The Legend […]

Hugo

Hugo

Monday, November 28, 2011 1 Comment

Like a skillfully constructed timepiece, Hugo, a part charming family movie, part homage to Georges Méliès, ticked and tocked with masterful craftsmanship and power. It’s surreal design and setting, beautiful story, wonderful acting, lovely music and overall magnetism made this not just a cute kids movie, but also a marvelous film for all ages. Even […]

The Taking of Pelham One Two Three (1974)

Friday, November 25, 2011 No Comments

Recently I got a chance to watch the original The Taking of Pelham One Two Three, starring Walter Mathau and Robert Shaw. Now, I have not seen the remake with Denzel and Travolta, but after watching this one I don’t think I care to, because the original wasn’t all that good itself. Not that the […]

Rock Band Chases the Roadrunner With Next Week’s Music Store Update

Friday, November 25, 2011 No Comments

Harmonix pulled another early announcement this week, for next week’s Rock Band Music Store update, in advance of Thanksgiving (which leaves me wondering why they did it last week). It’s all in promotion of Roadrunner Records artists. The update features tracks from Opeth – Ghost of Perdition, Trivium – In Waves, a classic hit from […]

Konami and Fox Release Karaoke Revolution Glee: Volume 3

Friday, November 25, 2011 No Comments

This may not be much of a surprise to Glee fans, but to the general gaming community, this week’s release of Karaoke Revolution Glee: Volume 3 by Konami and Twentieth Century Fox is probably high on the “Really?” list. Yes, the show is still quite popular, and so is this series within the video game […]
