Game of Thrones Season 5- Thoughts on Episodes 3 & 4

4 May

I want to start off by saying that despite any quibbles I may express, I have the utmost respect for showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. I don’t think fans quite realize the immense amount of pressure put upon them or the sheer volume of work they put in every year. They have basically been [...]

Game of Thrones- The House of Black & White Recap

21 Apr

As we enter week two of Game of Thrones’ fifth season, events start to ramp up despite a noticeably slower pace. The pacing here feels deliberate, and with some exceptions, each storyline is moving forward inch by inch. This is the nature of the show at this point, so I’m not so much criticizing as [...]

Alex’s Halloween Countdown, Day 7

31 Oct

Horror-Themed Videogames Alan Wake- The Writer Alan Wake is without a doubt one of my Top 10 games of the year. It has one of the best stories ever written for a game, and innovative gameplay that helps it stand apart from other survival horror titles. The game’s rated T for Teen, which made me [...]

Ridiculous Moments in Gaming- Every Second of Dante’s Inferno

26 Jul

Dante’s Inferno, a videogame adaptation of the epic Italian poem, is a totally ridiculous game, and not a very good one at that. It’s a shallow God of War clone and the only reason I got it was because it was on sale at Gamestop and since I don’t own a PS3 it seemed like [...]

DECAPITATION!!!!!! -Brütal Legend Review

25 Oct

XBOX 360, Rated M for Mature. In my Top 100 Favorite Videogame List I included several games that prolific designer Tim Schafer was involved in, including two he was project lead on: Grim Fandango and Psychonauts. So I’m obviously a fan. Schafer is the master of adventure games. He knows that some of the most [...]
