1917: Selling the exhaustion

I went into 1917 completely blind. The most I knew about it was that is was a World War 1 film, a topic I don’t see explored nearly enough in cinema or other forms of media. It’s such an interesting and horrific time in human history because of how the entire war came about, and how it literally changed the […]

Heart of Ice: Batman’s finest hour

If you were a alive in the 90’s, few pop culture icons were as huge as Batman. Between the Live action movies, both good and not so good (I will fight you if you think The Govanator’s performance is anything less than sublime), Batman was everywhere. But, if you were a kid, the thing that really brought it close to […]

Credit where credit is due: I’m enjoying STAR WARS Jedi: Fallen Order

I don’t want to be praising Electronic Arts right now. There is a reason they’ve practically become synonymous with all the horrible things people who who play video games hate in video games. Loot Boxes (oh, I’m sorry. “Surprise Mechanics”), horrible sports games with even more loot boxes, “acquiring” studios and then running them into the ground, and I will […]

Spider-Man is out of the MCU and that’s Okay

The internet seems mostly on fire today as the announcement that Sony and Marvel (or Disney? are they even separate things at this point) will no longer be working together as far as Spider-man is concerned, meaning Spider-man: Far From Home the last one to be appearing in the MCU for the time being. Details are a bit sparse, but […]

Evo moment 37: The first Esports highlight

EVO is this week, which if you don’t know, it pretty much the biggest Fighting Game tournament that Esports and the FGC has. When you think of Esports, most people assume you’re talking either about Fortnight, like that 16 year old player who just won 3 million, or something like Starcraft back in the day when RTS games were made […]

Tony Hawk’s Twitter is an Existential Nightmare

Tony Hawk, massively successful skateboarder and video game title holder (Except that last one. We don’t talk about that one) is a very special kind of famous. See, everyone knows his name, you practically couldn’t escape it in the early 2000’s when those video games were at peak popularity. The social impact had people actually going outside to learn of […]

Devolver Digital is Insane and I love it

Another year, another E3. The time where game developers show their “totally real” and “not at all CGI trailer” of their upcoming projects. All the big name companies were there, offering a glimpse at “the future of video gaming content” and presenting some “World Premier” content (i swear if I have to hear that from another presentation, I might just […]

They’re changing the movie Sonic’s design, and frankly I’m disappointed

Like many of you, when I saw the trailer for the Sonic movie, I reacted with a mixture of fear, confusion, and sheer, nightmare inducing horror. The human teeth, the weird body hair, the fact that “Gangsta’s Paradise” was the music they used. Everything they chose to do with this trailer seemed to be poised for and absolute train wreck of a movie. Hell, this was practically foreshadowed months ago with every teaser they released, showing more and more of the horror that was to come. So naturally, when the trailer came out, the internet’s reaction was loud, horrified, and memed into oblivion. Additionally, there were a lot of artist in the comments offering up redesigns, right next to the […]
