ZEN Studios Working on New IP, Wants You to Help Name It

Wednesday, December 21, 2011 1 Comment

On the list of opportunities in which most people never get a chance to take part, naming a piece of intellectual property is pretty high up there. So this week’s announcement from ZEN Studios saying it wants your help naming an upcoming project may be just the thing to help you check off that box. […]

HappyThankYouMorePlease

Wednesday, December 21, 2011 No Comments

There were 3 storylines in HappyThankYouMorePlease. The first followed Josh Radnor, the second, his best friend, and the third, some couple with very little relation to the other two. I enjoyed two out of the three of those stories. Of course, I would’ve preferred just one story, but I didn’t mind the second one, and […]

Ubisoft Releases Rocksmith Holiday Pack, For Free

Wednesday, December 21, 2011 No Comments

Now this is a gift I can get behind! It’s not quite on par with Epic Games’ American Thanksgiving Gears of War 3 DLC pack, but Ubisoft’s announcement that it is giving away free tracks for Rocksmith is pretty cool… except for the fact that it’s a holiday track pack. This Rocksmith Holiday Song Pack […]

Tucker and Dale

Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil

Tuesday, December 20, 2011 No Comments

Two unassuming hillbillies head up to the lake for a vacation, when a group of college kids mistake them for serial killers, and hilarity ensues. Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil, a extremely clever twist on the clichéd horror yarn of the psycho hunting students in a remote locale, had some great writing, amusing acting, and […]

Sherlcok Holmes- A Game of Thrones

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

Monday, December 19, 2011 No Comments

My thoughts on Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows are almost identical to the ones I had for the first movie in the series. Sure it looked pretty, the writing was moderately entertaining, and the action offered short spurts of pizzazz, but overall the movie fell flat. Occasionally it hopped, in terms of amusement, but […]

New Xbox Experience Update Brings Apps to the Forefront

Monday, December 19, 2011 1 Comment

The holiday season is upon us. Press releases and announcements are finally starting to slow down. And, as I haven’t had the chance to turn on my Xbox 360 in the past couple of weeks, I had the pleasure of updating to the new New Xbox Experience this week (you may know it’s already been […]

Harmonix announced today that next week’s Rock Band Music Store update will see the return of Rolling Stone’s recently named Greatest Guitar Player of All Time, Jimi Hendrix, with seven new tracks, including a couple that features Keyboard compatibility. The new pack includes Long Hot Summer Night, Gypsy Eyes, Voodoo Child (Slight Return) (Live), Dolly […]

Chinatown

Chinatown

Friday, December 16, 2011 No Comments

I find that in many crime/mystery films, the tendency is to build up the story and characters one way, then twist them around at the climax without the slightest allusion to it prior. It’s cheap, and seems rather haphazard on the part of the writers because it feels as though they didn’t put enough care […]

Earlier this week, Microsoft announced the launch of fresh entertainment applications for Xbox Live. This group is the second wave of Kinect-compatible applications since Microsoft launched the latest version of the Xbox Experience last week. The update spans news, movies, Video On Demand services from a variety of countries and television providers, and online video […]

The Muppets

The Muppets

Thursday, December 15, 2011 No Comments

To a certain extent, I agree with Eli’s review of The Muppets. It was a charming and funny restoration of one of the most beloved puppet ensembles. Furthermore, the surplus of cameos made every scene exciting for I was constantly curious to see who else would make an appearance. Conversely, the Meta style humor that […]
