We had the best time at your party… Goodbye, Ween.
Yesterday, one of my absolute favorite bands decided to call it quits. Ween was born in 1984 after Aaron Freeman and Mickey Melchiondo met in 8th grade and since then has evolved from two kids screwing around with sounds into a very competent and, dare I say, genius musical project. Taking on the psuedonyms of Gene […]
REVIEW: Chernobyl Diaries
Back in April of 1986 the Chernobyl nuclear power plant just outside of Prypiat in the Ukraine had a catastrophic accident and an explosion released enormous quantities of radioactive contamination in the atmosphere and surrounding area. It has long since been considered the worst nuclear power accident in the world. With a premise based in such a disturbing reality, there’s no way this could go wrong… right?
Digital Digressions: Men in Black 3
Paul: I don’t know about you, but Men In Black has been one of my favorite movies since I was a kid. To this day I will rewatch the first one multiple times if I’m bored.
Digital Digressions: Battleship
This last weekend, Battleship hit the silver-screen in theaters and being a child of terrible board games AND cheesy movies, it was imperative that it’d be seen.
REVIEW: Indie Game: The Movie
For a good amount of people who hear the words “indie game” the first titles that pop in their heads are Braid, Super Meat Boy and, more recently, FEZ. Almost all gaming enthusiasts have tried their hand on at least one of these titles at some point and most people who play them agree that they’re very strong, well done games. But what about the people behind the games? What about those who give up everything to sit in front of a screen for 100+ hours a week to ensure their product is worthy of their own insane standards?
A Talk With Josh A. Cagan
Personally, Undergrads was almost the perfect animated representation of my life at the time and holds a special place in my heart because of it but that doesn’t detract from it being a genuinely heart-touching, funny and all around great show.
FIRST IMPRESSION: Hybrid
In 2032 a newly built Hadron Supercollider imploded, obliterating Australia. The world was sent into turmoil as an alternate reality collided with our own and from it emerged a species known as the Variant. Chaos ensued and world war broke out between the Variants and a group of rebel humans known as the Paladins. The […]
REVIEW: The Walking Dead: Episode 1 – A New Day
I was admittedly somewhat indifferent to hear that Telltale Games (Sam & Max series and Jurassic Park: The Game) were working on a video game of a comic series that some might say has gotten too much attention. Being ever the optimist and zombie lover I am I decided to give the game a fair […]
This Week In Comics: April 24-30
It’s somewhat ironic that the week of the comic expo I only read three comics but there you go I suppose.
