• Farewell, Ultimate Warrior

    Farewell, Ultimate Warrior

    It’s been a long time since I’ve actually watched any sort of professional wrestling and an even longer time since I actually enjoyed it. It’s nowhere near as great as it used to be, just a hollow shell of the massively spectacular extravaganza that it once was. Today, the “sport” is nothing but an over-the-top, testosterone-fueled, overly dramatic soap opera […]

  • Deus Ex is Ruining my Dreams

    Deus Ex is Ruining my Dreams

    I recently began playing Deus Ex: Human Revolution on PC. I got the “Director’s Cut” when it was on sale on Steam, because I wanted the best possible experience. The game is great! I like the RPG elements; the story is mysterious and interesting. There are many ways to play the game, and I want to try them all. I […]

  • The Walking Dead Recap/Review: “A”

    The Walking Dead Recap/Review: “A”

    Are these people cannibals? So, pretty much the only atrocity we haven’t been subjected to, YET, on The Walking Dead is cannibalism. And I don’t know if you noticed, but as the Terminus shooters were herding Rick and company through the streets and alleys, there was a glimpse of…”meat” laid out behind a chain link fence. Also, there were voices […]

  • Live-Action Turtle Power Returns!

    Live-Action Turtle Power Returns!

    When I first heard of a live-action Ninja Turtles reboot, I was excited. When I heard Michael Bay was the guy behind it, skepticism set in. Let’s just say I was on the fence. I’ve enjoyed his Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street remakes but the Transformers series has been hit-or-miss, so I haven’t been sure what to […]

  • Where is my Fandom?

    Where is my Fandom?

    I’m having a bit of an existential crisis. I used to be a fan in the literal sense of the word: fantatic. I used to be able to talk your ear off about comics, movies, video games, board games, and I would do so with glee. But, lately, fandom has been kind of annoying to me. Every time I see […]

  • The Walking Dead Recap/Review: “The Grove”

    The Walking Dead Recap/Review: “The Grove”

    Last night’s “The Grove” was not a pleasant episode. But, I suppose there would be something fundamentally wrong with me if I declared any episode of The Walking Dead to be a pleasant episode. After all, the show is a parade of miserable hopelessness punctuated by the occasional high point. It’s the high points that get me in trouble, really. […]

  • Ladies and Gentlemen…the “Real” John Constantine.

    Ladies and Gentlemen…the “Real” John Constantine.

    Since the unofficially leaked pic has created such a buzz, NBC has released an official image for their upcoming television adaptation, Constantine, based on the comic series John Constantine, Hellblazer. And I’ll be damned if he doesn’t look almost exactly like he came straight off the pages of the comic. This makes me incredibly excited because Hellblazer is one of my favorite comic book series’ […]
