Kingdoms of Amalur Re-Reckoning Review

September 14, 2020 // 0 Comments

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning originally released all the way back in February 2012 on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. We won’t get into the history of the development of the game and the quick demise of developers 38 Studios and Big Huge Games, because none of that matters in the present. Reckoning was to be the introduction to the Kingdoms of [...]

Marvel’s Avengers Review

September 9, 2020 // 0 Comments

Marvel’s Avengers has been out for a week now, for those of us who ordered the version with 72 hours of early access anyway, and in that week I’ve gotten a couple of characters of the level cap of 50 and into the power soft cap of 130. I’ve done everything there is to do in Avengers outside of the AIM Secret Lab raid, so [...]

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 [...]

Destiny 2: Joker’s Wild Review

March 25, 2019 // 0 Comments

Destiny 2’s second of three content drops that make up the post-Forsaken Annual Pass released a few short weeks ago. Dubbed Joker’s Wild, the drop adds an evolved form of Gambit called Gambit Prime and a new endgame cooperative activity for four players called The Recknoning to Annual Pass holders. Joker’s Wild has stuff for [...]

High Fidelity Review

November 15, 2018 // 0 Comments

For many of my teenage years and into my twenties I was one of those dorky retro kids obsessed with old vinyl records and bands that, if my friends had heard of, they did not care about. I say that because when a film is made about a sub-culture, it is important to get that sub-culture right, and High Fidelity does just that, in a way that is [...]

Mad Max: Fury Road Review

October 31, 2018 // 2 Comments

I saw this movie in 3D with my wife, who liked it far less than I did, feeling the movie was long on chase scenes and short on story. I say that up front for a little context, but personally I loved that the entire movie is just one long adrenaline rush. The story was started on the run and kept running throughout. Theron’s character Furiosa has [...]

Inglourious Basterds Review

October 25, 2018 // 0 Comments

This story takes place in Nazi occupied Paris, where a young and beautiful blonde cinema owner has been tasked with hosting a big event for the entire Third Reich. At the same time, a Dirty Dozen like crew of Allied Nazi Hunters lead by Brad Pitt are looking for a way to end the way, and think they might just have it with this coming movie [...]

That book featured over 200 superstar profiles of current and former WWE talent, and featured illustrations by Daz Tibbles. On March 6th, WWE and DK team up once more to publish the WWE Ultimate Superstar Guide 2nd Edition. This edition is more of the same; it [...]

WWE Absolutely Everything You Need to Know Review

October 11, 2017 // 0 Comments

The latest book release from the DK Publishing/WWE partnership dropped at the beginning of the month, and as you would expect it’s a pretty good one. If you’re a fan of pop culture books, you may have seen some other DK’s other “Absolutely Everything You Need To Know” books for Star Wars, Marvel, and LEGO. WWE: [...]
