Star Citizen – Dogfight Module Preview (PAX East)

Published on April 11, 2014, by in PC Games.

(skip to about an hour in to get to the good stuff) I got a chance to catch the livestream of Roberts Space Industries unveiling of the dogfighting modual at PAX east last night. The presentation was not without its problems, they were almost 40 minutes late from the start time, and the game crashed a few times during the presentation. Of what was shown though, it looks to be a very promising and visually impressive game. The attention to detail in every aspect of what was shown was paramount. Star Citizen looks to bring an epic  immersive space sim

Film Review: The Grand Budapest Hotel

Published on April 10, 2014, by in Film.

Release Date: March 7, 2014 Directed By: Wes Anderson Written By: Wes Anderson & Hugo Guinness; Inspired by the stories of Stefan Zweig Rating: A+ When I think of Wes Anderson, I think of elaborate set pieces, quick-witted dialog, an expertly crafted score, and a cast list as long and prestigious as the Titanic’s manifest. When I was very young, my parents used to take my sister and I to the beautifully grandiose Broadway theaters in Manhattan. The set design of the bigger productions (like Les Miserables, Cats, and the Phantom of the Opera) utterly astounded me. There is a magic there unlike any

Film Review: Captain America – Winter Solider (Minor Spoilers Abound)

Published on April 10, 2014, by in Film.

Release Date: April 4th, 2014 Directed By: Anthony & Joe Russo Written By: Christopher Markus, Stephen McFeely, Ed Brubaker (concept and story) Rating: A- Since I was 5 years old I have loved comic books and the universes they exist in to a staggering degree. The first time I opened a comic book was in 1988. Recovering from a massive open heart surgery in Toronto, Canada (where I stayed in a ward with a bunch of other kids) I had a lot of time to kill and not a lot of energy to kill it with. One of the other

Dota 2 – The International 4 – Sold Out in an Hour

Published on April 8, 2014, by in PC Games.

      Well, so much for my summer vacation plan. If you had the same plan that I did, to visit Seattle this July to see friends and watch the 4th annual Dota 2 tournament, The International, you are mostly out of luck.  I arrived to the Ticketmaster page only about 1.5 hours after they went on sale only to find that the event had already sold out.  Valve even made sure to secure a much larger arena this year, with a capacity for 17,459 people. If you have loads of money to spend you can find tickets on eBay in

Google Maps Pokémon Challenge

Published on March 31, 2014, by in Mobile, Portable Gaming.

Well it looks like the gang at Google is trying something a little new for April Fool’s this year. The incredibly awesome Pokémon Challenge is now live for your iPhone or Android devices.   Just what is the Pokémon Challenge, you ask? Well, have a look for yourself below. Obviously the deadline of 4.2.14 will be for how long you’ll be able to use the app and the position offered within isn’t a real one, but it’s clever gags like this that keep things fresh and exciting for Google’s user base. As soon as I saw the video I opened up Google

EA is Changing, For The Better?

Published on March 31, 2014, by in Editorial, PC Games.

EA has slowly been trying to reverse it’s atrocious track record for customer service and satisfaction since 2012, when it was first voted as the “Worst Company in America“ by Consumerist. They failed in 2013 and remained at the top of the list, but now with the Time Warner Cable acquisition EA has been bumped down to #2, which isn’t great, but it is something. Obviously, EA has a long way to go before they repair the damage they’ve done to their customer relations. With egregious acts like the bungling of the SimCity launch in 2013, to needless DRM on single player games. I

My Weekend With Wildstar – Beta Gameplay

So, thanks to Destructoid, this past weekend I spent most of my time bent over my PC playing the beta for Carbine Studio and NCSoft’s latest project, Wildstar.  Wildstar is a sci-fi themed, subscription-based MMO that borrows heavily from some of the genre’s biggest successes–as most video game developers tend to do. It’s a play-it-safe scenario with likenesses to World of Warcraft, Guild Wars 2 and SWTOR. Now, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, except when it is. But for the most part, Wildstar spends your time lovingly…as a well thought-out and beautifully crafted game. Unfortunately, it also doesn’t really offer anything all that

Film Review: Anchorman 2 (R Version)

Published on March 10, 2014, by in Film.

Release Date: December 18th, 2013 Directed & Written By: Adam McKay & Will Ferrell Instantly Available On: 4/1/2014 Rating: D- The original Anchorman was a zany and over-the-top comedy about an egotistical yet beloved anchorman and his news team from the 1970s. It was about manliness and never backing down. It was about pretending you knew what the fuck you were talking about, when clearly you had no idea at all. It was full of silliness, bad jokes, orange and brown clothes, mustaches, and glass cases of emotion. Although the film was juvenile and raunchy, it was well-written and had a
