It's-Oscar-time!

Academy Awards 2013

Monday, February 25, 2013 No Comments

I don’t remember the last time I saw a really good Academy Awards show. I have this vague memory of a year with shadow puppets, but that’s about all. There have been splashes of solid entertainment in the past few years, but there has yet to be a year where the Oscars are primarily good […]

Skyfall

Skyfall (Blu-ray combo pack)

Friday, February 15, 2013 No Comments

Seeing Skyfall for the second time, I gained a greater appreciation for its affluent style. The first time I was more focused on the story, this time, however, I paid extra attention to the details, and they glisten like a pair of leather shoes after being proficiently polished with a gunmetal grey finish. I still […]

Gravity Rush Kat

Female Stereotype in Gravity Rush

Wednesday, February 13, 2013 No Comments

Back when I reviewed Gravity Rush, I took some time to mention just how much Kat, our amnesiatic protagonist’s, teenage stereotyped nature distracted me from the overall impressive nature of the game and its story as a whole. Well, I’m still playing the game, and those thoughts still linger, even though I haven’t come across […]

Harmonix Rocks the Single Life for Valentine’s Day Week

Friday, February 8, 2013 No Comments

Harmonix is letting you rock the singles this Valentine’s Day (Well… that seems a little contrary to the whole point of the day, but who are we to judge). Yes, as with years past, this Valentine’s Day week Rock Band Music Store update will feature love-related songs. This year’s update features Love Hurts by Nazareth, […]

Two Months With the Playstation Vita

Thursday, February 7, 2013 No Comments

It has been a little over two months now since I first took ownership of a Playstation Vita. It was a mostly pleasant experience, save for some memory card tomfoolery on Sony’s part. Aside from that niggling bit, as I still like to call it, I am still as enamoured with this fancy handheld as […]

Warm Bodies

Zombies have a tough life. Not only do they look gross and make people want to shoot them in the freaking face, but they are also emotionally, and intellectually, void (their only thought being, “brains, I want to eat you”). So when it comes to making films about zombies, there is very little to be […]

LEGO Lord of the Rings Box

LEGO: The Lord of the Rings

Thursday, January 31, 2013 No Comments

There must be something wrong with me… Once I pick up LEGO: LOTR, I can’t put it down. Sure, that bodes well for the game, but it’s an absolute horror for my circadian rhythm! It’s a fun adaptation of Peter Jackson’s films, distilling the action down to the core story and throwing in typical LEGO […]
