Review – Monster Hunter (2020)
First of all, I can recognize this movie is trashy; the writing is bad, the set-up for the story is lame, the characters are pretty stupid and the pacing is really, REALLY strange. So, I kind of loved this movie…

“Game” or “Not A Game”? Discussion Continues….
There have on more than one occasion in the last year or two been some awkward moments between friends and I when talking about certain games. Not to beat around the bush: while many people praise games such as Gone Home and TellTale’s The Walking Dead for being excellent examples of how narrative and story […]
Sleeping Beauty has long been a revered and iconic staple in the classic Disney library for many people. Although at the time of its creation in 1959 it was cited as a box office failure, the story of Princess Aurora has gained popularity as one of the crowd favorites from classic Disney. While I may not be so excitable about the idea of a Sleeping Beauty remake, I’ve always had a fondness for the story’s villain, Maleficent.

Year In Review: Paul’s Top Ten Video Games of 2012
The last year has been quite the ride for video games. We saw some of the best and worst of the industry, the steady decline of quality Triple-A titles and the rise of indie games to fill the void. I played a lot of games I’ve enjoyed this year and, after debating for a good […]
What is… KRUNCH?
Remember those maze games that require precision to move a small object you control to the goal? Take that, add the Super Meat Boy sensibilities of “EVERYTHING WILL KILL YOU” and mix in the stress of a room’s walls closing in on you. The end product is a neat little indie game called KRUNCH, a game by […]
