Last of Us: PS3’s Swan Song? (Initial Impressions)

June 24, 2013


I very rarely ever preorder games. (In fact, I intend to start a recurring blog focus on budget gaming, which more or less excludes such frivolities in most situations.) In fact, of the few times I have preordered games, I can’t really think of an instance where I reserved a title that wasn’t the next […]

Midweek Geek Out 6-19-13: The Future of Superman (Spoiler-free Review!)

June 20, 2013


It’s been a pretty intense gauntlet of new films for movie goers and geek inclined alike. Ironman 3 kicked off the 2013 summer season (see my review here) followed by new installments of Star Trek, Fast and Furious and Superman, as well as a few non-franchise movies, including the magician’s ensemble Now You See Me, […]

“Vita La Revolucion!” : The Hands On Approach

December 3, 2012


I think any gamer nerd worth a hill of beans was at least mildly interested in the Sony Vita or at least they damn well should be. Let’s face it; we are under attack from a most formidable foe… casual gamers. They muck up “gamer” statistics with their OCD Farmville playing and Angry Bird slinging. I don’t […]

The Non-traditional Traditionalist

November 23, 2012


As a former social sciences student (actually, once a social sciences student, always a social sciences student, if you follow me), I find myself thinking more about what people do and why (including myself) than your average Joe likely does. Holiday traditions, for example, are an interesting subject to me. I mean, when you really look […]

Midweek Geek Out (November 15) – Nintendo Edition

November 15, 2012


My first game system ever was a Nintendo Entertainment System. I had played Atari, of course, as a wee lad, but the first system I ever physically owned was a Nintendo. I remember once having a conversation with someone born in 1988 about our video game histories and realizing, “Wow, I’ve been playing Final Fantasy since […]

Midweek Geek Out (November 7) – Potluck

November 7, 2012


I have some fantastic geek out ideas that I can’t, unfortunately, discuss at length until at least next week, so this will be a melting pot of sorts of stray subtopics. 1.) Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamil are all reportedly interested in reprising their roles for a future Star Wars film. And I […]

Keeping Paces

November 7, 2012


So… I missed a day. Not intentionally, of course, and definitely despite my better efforts. I went to go vote early after work (I work nights) before laundry and bed… boy was I bummed to wake up and find out my candidate didn’t win! I mean, America needs someone we can believe in! Oh well… […]
