Wii U Game Party: Scribblenauts Unlimited

Friday, November 30, 2012 No Comments

Scribblenauts Unlimited, much like its predecessors, has a lot of fun potential. However, I don’t know how I feel about it on a console, as I happen to think it works better as a handheld game. But, seeing as how the controller is a handheld device, this game allows you not just to play it […]

Harmonix announced today that next week’s Rock Band Music Store update will feature some new tracks from blues rock outfit The Black Crowes (ah, now you see what I did there?).

Lock the Vault Door and Baby, Talk Wii U to Me

Thursday, November 29, 2012 2 Comments

Yesterday, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment tried to lock me in a vault, and I said, “fine, but I will need a bucket!” Or at least that’s what I imagined might occur when I arrived at One King West Hotel and was led downstairs into a giant vault for the Wii U Game Party. But how […]

Cloud Atlas

Cloud Atlas

Wednesday, November 28, 2012 No Comments

Cloud Atlas hit the ground running. Within the first few minutes it showed glimpses of all six of the various stories you are meant to be following. And as the film progressed, it carefully chose how fast to jump between stories depending on the intensity of the events, which was compelling. On top of that, […]

Nintendo Announces Canadian-Exclusive Wii Mini Console

Tuesday, November 27, 2012 No Comments

Well, I suppose this handily trumps Microsoft’s pre-release promotional nod to Canada with Forza Horizon. If you haven’t already heard, the major gaming news of the day is that Nintendo is releasing a special miniature version of the original Wii for the holiday season. Oh, and it’s exclusive to Canada. Once you manage to wipe […]

Life of Pi

Life of Pi

Monday, November 26, 2012 No Comments

In terms of visuals, the incarnation of Yann Martel’s classic novel, Life of Pi, is a feast for the eyes. The vibrant plethora of animated sequences and flourishes reaches beyond your retinas to somewhere existential and spiritual within. It’s the driving force of the film, the element that carries you along the journey, which, sadly, […]

Skyfall: The IMAX Experience

Monday, November 26, 2012 No Comments

When discussing Adele’s Skyfall theme, people would often tell me that it sounded similar to older Bond theme songs, and I consistently responded saying that I believed (not having researched the song’s composition) that it was meant to be a return to the franchise’s classic style, thus mixing old and new. Little did I know […]
