A Brit Late Review: VVVVVV

A Brit Late Review: VVVVVV

Pixels have had something of a revival in recent years, but then again they never really left. They migrated from the home consoles that began to favor polygons and found a new home in the family of handheld machines. That being said, this generation of video games has seen in a renaissance for pixels (hand […]

 

ASP Episode #14 “Jack Bauer influences foreign policy”

ASP Episode #14 “Jack Bauer influences foreign policy”

This week we sucked and didn’t see a new movie but we enjoyed a two and a half hour acid trip and a movie that makes you feel violated after you see it.

 

Dragon Age: Origins DLC- Darkspawn Chronicles

Dragon Age: Origins DLC- Darkspawn Chronicles

Darkspawn Chronicles is a really good premise; In fact it’s a bloody great premise. However in execution it wallows misery. I’m not saying it’s bad, but this is by far the most “meh” pieces of DLC I have ever played.

 

Dragon Age: Origins – Awakening Review

Dragon Age: Origins – Awakening Review

Dragon Age is a long game, a very looong game, and now there’s more of it. Dragon Age: Origins – Awakening is the first (and more than likely only) full length Expansion to Dragon Age: Origins, and let me tell you it’s good, really good.

 

ADEQUATELY-SIZED PODCAST: Episode #12 “What if the movie sucks?”

ADEQUATELY-SIZED PODCAST: Episode #12 “What if the movie sucks?”

This week we attempt to fill the void, that was left with Chad leaving us, with Kristen Bell, DeLoreans, and Will Ferrell’s peace giving aura.

 

ADEQUATELY-SIZED PODCAST: Episode #11 “Chad’s Farewell”

ADEQUATELY-SIZED PODCAST: Episode #11 “Chad’s Farewell”

This week is Chad’s last week with us. To send him off we cover a movie with a creepy man that likes to BLANK himself in public, a movie where yet again a dork is some how married to a really hot chick, and last but not least…a movie that makes some people’s brains bleed, […]

 

Justice League: The New Frontier Review

Justice League: The New Frontier Review

You know a Justice League animated movie is more than a little different when in the first 6 minutes two people get shot in the face, one covering a main character’s face in weird maroon colored blood. This is the odd duck that is Justice League: The New Frontier.

 

Irredeemable #16

Irredeemable #16

After last issue’s big battle, Irredeemable #16 takes quite a turn.  This issue of Irredeemable is a series of vignettes.  Mostly quiet moments, though a couple are violent,  in the lives of the characters. This is my favorite issue of Irredeemable lately.

Codebreakers #4

Codebreakers #4

Codebreakers #4 is the final issue in this miniseries by BOOM!.  As you may guess from the title, the story revolves around analysts for the CIA.  They are not all number crunchers though, and that helps make this geeks as heroes titles more interesting.

 

Hellboy: “The Storm #1” It’s Walking Dead with Armor, What’s Not to Love?

Hellboy: “The Storm #1” It’s Walking Dead with Armor, What’s Not to Love?

Okay let’s the disclaimer out of the way first. I’ve been reading comics for more than a few years now, but for some reason I’ve never gotten around to picking up Hellboy. It’s not because I didn’t like the concept or the idea of the story, I just never really found the time. So, when […]

 

Area 10

Area 10

You should be aware, if you were wondering like me, that the title to this book has nothing to do with Area 51 and aliens. Instead, this Vertigo Crime novel’s title, Area 10,  refers to an area of the brain often the target for trepanning.  On a sliding scale of unreality, this crime story is […]

 

Incorruptible #7

Incorruptible #7

I was dubious about this comic at first:  Was it merely a pretender riding the coattails of the successful Irredeemable?  It was, after all, advertised as the reverse story of Irredeemable:  The villain is now the hero. However, seven issues in, I find myself liking Incorruptible more than Irredeemable for another area where they are […]

Little Red Envelope #4: Push

Little Red Envelope #4: Push

In my mailbox this week: Push Release Year: 2009 Staring: Chris Evans, Dakota Fanning Somehow, I think, Push, was one of those movies that slipped through the cracks. I remember (vaguely) that it was in the theaters, but not too much else. I think it might have been blurred in with, and confused with, the […]
