If you know one thing about me, it’s probably that I love Community. I’ve watched the show in its entirety numerous times, rewatch my favorite episodes frequently, and I’m watching it again right now because I love it so much. It became clear as I watched the show that while many were involved...

As disclaimer, I haven’t fully completed Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch yet, as it’s an absolutely massive game. I have, however, made it through a decent chunk of the game, and I believe I can at least begin to delineate my thoughts on the experience so far. Ni No Kuni is a collaboration b...

The Cave is the latest game from legendary game designer Ron Gilbert, creator of games like Maniac Mansion and The Secret of Monkey Island, after joining Tim Schafer’s team at Double Fine Studios. It attempts to merge old-school point-and-click adventure game design to a 2D platformer’s struct...

Warm Bodies is a movie based on the book of the same name that was released November of 2011. Having not read the book before, I was wondering whether or not if I should give it a try, as I’ve found that most books are better than their movie portrayals. But because it consisted of two of my favor...

Upon going to see the new movie Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, directed by Norwegian Tommy Wirkola, I wasn't expecting much of anything. A movie about the now-grown siblings going after witches is not the kind of film I would usually gravitate to, but I saw it anyway.  Surprisingly, I found it...

With releases like Halo 4,  Medal of Honor: Warfighter and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, I went into holiday season 2012 feeling as if every shooter released was going to be yet another linear and short game where my best friend would be a man with a follow icon above his head. I was pleasantly surprised...

King of the Nerds is a new reality TV show that aired on January 17. In the show, nerds compete for a cash prize of $100,000 and the title of "King of the Nerds." Being an acclaimed nerd myself, I was interested in what TBS would do with the concept. What kind of games would they play? What would th...

Let me begin by saying that I’ve never played the original Devil May Cry games, and thus, I had no opinion on the series before jumping into this reboot. Instead, my expectations for the game were mostly focused towards Ninja Theory, the development studio that was creating the game, since Enslaved...

Much has been said regarding Zero Dark Thirty’s depiction of torture and the death of Osama Bin Laden. Little has been said, however, of the fact that the movie meanders often, and is infrequently an exciting or entertaining work of art. For the uninitiated, Zero Dark Thirty is a film based arou...

Gangster Squad, the next film from Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer, was originally scheduled for release in early September. However, the film included a climactic scene involving a theater shooting and, due to the proximity to the Aurora shootings in late July, the film was pushed back and the scen...

Does The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey really require any kind of introduction? Peter Jackson’s previous Lord of the Rings films are such an enormous presence in the film industry that this follow-up not only seemed inevitable, but maybe even bigger than its predecessors. The Hobbit makes a numbe...
