Just Cause Review

February 16, 2016 // 0 Comments

Hello everyone and welcome back to yet another way past due edition of The Backlog. As usual, the real world continues to get in the way of things I’d rather be doing, but such is life for most of us. So we’re here with the 29th installment of The Backlog, and we’re going to be true to the name here. We’re going to go back [...]

Sunset Overdrive Review

July 29, 2015 // 2 Comments

This is a great looking game. Obviously it is a cartoonish style as opposed to more life like games like Watch_Dogs, The Last of Us and countless others, but it is very well done and very colorful. All the scenery is fantastic, from the buildings to the abandoned cars in the streets. I really like the design and the coloring of the OD’s, and [...]

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Review

October 19, 2014 // 3 Comments

Today we shall look at a fun, but slightly flawed game, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. Middle-Earth is an action adventure RPG romp into the universe of the Lord of the Rings. With that established and without further adieu, let’s get this show on the road. I believe that I have stated on numerous occasions that am not the most picky when [...]

Murdered Soul Suspect Review

July 4, 2014 // 1 Comment

Murdered Soul Suspect starts off with a bang, or more accurately, a crash. Detective Ronan O’Connor is thrown out of an upstairs(4th floor I believe) window of an apartment building in Salem, Massachusetts. O’Connor was pursuing the a vicious serial killer known only as The Bell Killer. The multi-story fall didn’t kill [...]

Mario Kart 8 Review

June 8, 2014 // 1 Comment

Mario Kart 8 is a fantastic looking game. It is probably the most crisp, sharpest looking game I’ve ever seen on any Nintendo console. Each track and their background scenery is all very vivid and almost lifelike, in a cartoonish Mario kind of way. LEGO City and Mario 3D both looked great, but Mario Kart 8 took it up a notch in my opinion. [...]

Hello boys and girls and welcome back to another edition of everyone’s favorite video game review, The Backlog…what? This isn’t your favorite review? Oh…well that’s embarrassing.

Sleepy Hollow Review

October 31, 2013 // 0 Comments

Based on Washington Irving’s “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” with a few poetic liberties, Sleepy Hollow puts a modern spin on the legendary tale of horror. Rather than his original role as a school teacher, Ichabod Crane (Depp) is now an investigator from New York sent to investigate murder in the farming community of Sleepy Hollow. There, he [...]

Van Helsing Review

October 31, 2013 // 0 Comments

For a movie I had no intention of watching in the theater, this was a pretty good movie. The legendary monster hunter Van Helsing (Jackman) must go to Transylvania to fight Dracula and help Anna (Beckinsale), who’s family can not enter heaven until Dracula is dead (I suppose that would be the best word to use). Along with appearances by Mr. Hyde [...]

Resident Evil Review

October 31, 2013 // 0 Comments

Based on the popular video game series by the same name, Resident Evil is about the Umbrella Corporation and their secret biological experiments. Living in the house above “The Hive,” Alice (Jovovich) awakens following an accident down below. Long story short, a specially trained commando team (which includes Rodriguez) is sent in by [...]

Sleepwalkers Review

October 26, 2013 // 0 Comments

What a painfully bad movie this is. Who wrote this crap? Stephen King took credit for this? You’re kidding me? The same guy that wrote shit like Misery, The Shining, Carrie, and The Green Mile? What did who do wrong here? Basically what we have, is these two people, a mother and son. Only they aren’t humans, they’re what’s known as [...]
