Uncharted movie news? What game is Russell playing?

Uncharted movie news? What game is Russell playing?

In a recent interview with IGN, David O. Russell discussed some of his plans for the upcoming Uncharted movie that he’s directing. Now, I don’t know about you, but after reading this it’s clear to me that he has never played Uncharted before. Comparing the Drakes to the Sopranos? A crime family? Meting out justice […]

Alexander Gordon Smith Interview

Alexander Gordon Smith Interview

I had the pleasure of being able to do an interview with Alexander Gordon Smith, the author of the Furnace book series. He was super nice and willing to help me out and I have to give him major props for his awesome response to my questions (no matter how ridiculous they were). A co-worker […]

Heavy Rain is a good way to get over the snow.

If you haven’t heard about Heavy Rain by now you’ve probably been living under a rock for the last year. To bring you up to speed, it’s a game by Quantic Dream made exclusively for Playstation 3. You can get this game for around $60.00. It’s a thriller mystery game and is unique in that […]

Solitary: Escape from Furnace 2

Solitary: Escape from Furnace 2

Well, Alexander Gordon Smith, you’ve done it again. Somehow, you’ve managed to get into my brain, and pick out yet another fear of mine, and play on it. This book has everything: claustrophobia, mystery, things that go bump in the night… oh and to add to that, the fear of drowning.  Yay. The second book […]

Bejeweled 3 Review, Continued.

Bejeweled 3 Review, Continued.

Whew. What a busy time. Christmas, New Years, the beginning of a new school semester. I finally have a second to sit down and finish up my review of Bejeweled. So if you read my last review, I’d played all the different versions of the game, except Quest. To continue where I left off with […]

Bejeweled 3 – First Impressions

Bejeweled 3 – First Impressions

I downloaded a copy of Bejeweled 3 last week and I have been itching to get into this game since I got it, but finals week has annihilated any free time I’ve had. Finally, winter break is here and I can play to my hearts content.  Normally priced at $19.95, I got it courtesy of PopCap […]

Eat your vegetables kids. (Plants vs. Zombies)

Further proof that vegetables do way more good than harm. For all you kids who barfed up your peas back in the day, this ones for you. My husband Chris Kirkham was offered the chance to play and review the game Plants Vs. Zombies, made by Pop Cap games, but I got to it before […]

Uncharted ANGER.

Uncharted ANGER.

This may be old news to some, but to me it’s new and incredibly disappointing. Mark Wahlberg has confirmed that he will play…. now get this… Nathan Friggin’ Drake. Yes, you read that right. Marky Mark minus the Funky Bunch playing one of my all time favorite video game heroes. I cannot believe this travesty. In […]

“Below heaven is hell. Beneath hell is Furnace.”

“Below heaven is hell. Beneath hell is Furnace.”

I read a new book today, Lockdown: Escape from Furnace 1 by Alexander Gordon Smith. He writes children and young adult books. This is the first book in a young adult horror series. I don’t remember where I read about this book (somewhere online) but what caught my interest was that one of my favorite […]
