Darksiders Genesis Review

February 27, 2020 // 0 Comments

Darksiders Genesis has arrived on consoles (PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch) after releasing late last year for PC and Google Stadia. Budget priced at $39.99, Genesis brings a lot of value to the table in terms of a fun gameplay loop and replayability. Genesis is a spin-off of the main Darksiders games, and in this case serves as a prequel [...]

Destiny 2: Season of Dawn Review

February 18, 2020 // 0 Comments

As of the writing of this review, Season of Dawn ends in three weeks and so we’ve seen everything this season has to offer it seems like the perfect time to finally review it. I’m going to try and keep this limited to Season of Dawn entirely, and not go off on a tangent about the current way seasons operate in general. But I’m a [...]

Noelle Review

November 20, 2019 // 0 Comments

Originally slated for a theatrical release, Disney made the decision to go with Noelle as the first live-action, original movie for their Disney+ streaming service. With the service launching on November 12th, it was definitely a good decision by Disney because November and December are months when folks like to watch Christmas movies. Also a good decision because Anna Kendrick brings some name value to the service's first original film, and also because Noelle is better suited for at home streaming than it is a movie theater. [...]

La Bamba (1987) Review

October 1, 2019 // 0 Comments

  In the grand scheme of music history Richie Valens, or Valenzuela (Lou Diamond Phillips) was a minor figure in music history, and his biggest claim to fame is that he died in the same plane crash that took the life of Buddy Holly and the Big Bopper, but his story is such a great little slice of the American dream that it makes for great [...]

Borderlands 3 Review

September 30, 2019 // 0 Comments

It’s been about three weeks since Borderlands 3 released, and thus far I’ve put in around 54 hours into the game on one character. Within the first week, I had completed the main campaign twice; once on normal and once again on True Vault Hunter Mode. The current inability to skip cutscenes means I’m in no rush to play through it again to [...]

WWE 35 Years of WrestleMania Review

August 21, 2019 // 0 Comments

The latest from the collaboration between WWE Books and DK Publishing hits bookstores everywhere on September 3rd with the release of WWE 35 Years of WrestleMania. It’s not a completely new release, but rather an updated/expanded release of a title released five years ago (30 Years of WrestleMania). I wrote a full review of that release five [...]

July 20, 2019 // 0 Comments

Nick Wild is a Las Vegas bodyguard with a gambling addiction, and an action movie hero addiction as well. Dreaming of escaping this seedy world so he can sail a yacht around Corsica, he earns money through cutesy side jobs like helping losers get laid by letting them beat him up in front of their girlfriends, while serving as the “Mike” Jason [...]

Sniper Elite V2 first released way back in May 2012 for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. Two more mainline additions and seven years later, Sniper Elite V2 has been remastered for PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. Is the trip back to 1945 Berlin and the final days of World War II worth it? The short answer is, it depends. If you never played Sniper [...]

Backfire (2017) Review

April 25, 2019 // 0 Comments

I’ve seen plenty of movies which required its audience to turn off their brain. ‘Backfire’ (2017) is one of a select few that also requires them to turn off their souls. Note: their brains should still be turned off as well. I had moderate hopes for a mid-level shoot em’ up based on a promising premise that hooked me in the Netflix [...]
