Concept Factory: Taking Martian Manhunter In A New Direction

Martian Manhunter Feature

With Justice League of America debuting soon, I thought I’d drag out an old idea of mine on the Martian Manhunter. This was a new direction I had planned for when he first died (and would inevitably return) and later an idea that could have been used when DC rebooted their franchise and created the … Continue reading

My Two Cents: 5 Ways to Bring Back Wally West

Flash - Wally

With the reveal of “Daniel West” in Flash #0, the Internet’s going wild trying to figure out who the hell Daniel West is, and what does it mean for Wally West? Ever since creators Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato revealed that Francis was working on a way to re-introduce Wally to the New 52 (but … Continue reading

The Best Games You’ve Never Played: “Split/Second”

Split Second Feature

In an age where Need for Speed had a new game coming out every ten minutes, and Burnout was still the king of the high-speed hill, Black Rock Studios strove to do something else, something different. Enter Split/Second, a wild and welcomed departure from the usual racing game formula. __________________________________________ The Five D’s of Racing … Continue reading

Review: “The Last Werewolf” by Glen Duncan

Last Werewolf Feature2

As a big fan of werewolves (and the supernatural in general), I was ecstatic to hear about a high-profile, maturely written, more intelligent take on the werewolf myth than ever attempted before. Typically reserved for gory horror villains, vampire lackeys, or cannon fodder for Kate Beckinsale, it was nice to see some serious attention—generally reserved … Continue reading

Why “Dredd” Needs To Be Seen: A Spoiler-Free Review of Why Dredd Rocks

Dredd Feature

(Note: this review is based off of a 2D showing) Unless you’re a fan of British comics and pop culture, chances are you won’t be familiar with 2000 AD’s comic hero Judge Dredd unless you’ve seen the 1995 Judge Dredd movie starring Sylverster Stallone. 2012′s Dredd starring Karl Urban and directed by Pete Travis is … Continue reading

Tekken Tag Tournament 2′s Game-Breaking Bug: Caution With Combot

Combot Bug Feature

UPDATE: 10/09/12: The bug has now been fixed by the today’s patch! And with it you get three new characters and a few other small bells and whistles! Recently I lauded how great Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is, and I wouldn’t take it back at all. But, there is a horrible game-breaking bug out right … Continue reading

Review: Tekken Tag Tournament 2: The King of the Iron Fist Tournament Just Got Even Better

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Feature 2

As a fan of the Tekken series for a pretty longtime, it’s tough inviting friends to play with me who have never touched a Tekken game in their life. The usual responses follow any attempt I’ve ever made to get people on the Tekken bandwagon: “I hate Tekken,” or “Your lifebar goes down so low … Continue reading

Resident Evil: Retribution: Same Ol’ S**t, in 3D!!!

Ada Wong and Alice: with the power of avoiding bullets while standing in wide open spaces.

What can’t be said about Resident Evil: Retribution that can’t be understood by it’s trailer? Alice is back, she’s kicking ass, and you have an hour and a half to see her doing wire fu/gun kata violence before your brain explodes. Resident Evil: Retribution is the fifth movie in Resident Evil movie series, and for … Continue reading

Review: “Old Man’s War” by John Scalzi

Old Man's War Review Feature

Having finally read Robert Heinlein’s pivotal Starship Troopers for the first time this year, I’ve been starving for more good military sci-fi novels. Heinlein’s influential story has inspired movies and huge gaming franchises like Halo and Starcraft and especially books, of course. John Scalzi’s Old Man’s War joins the ranks not only as an ode … Continue reading

Review: “Richard Faraday, Ghost Detective”

Richard Faraday Feature

The witty, cunning, humorous hero has been a staple of pop-culture for as long as media and modern literature has been around. While not perfect, what makes Charlie Wilkins’ debut novel Richard Faraday, Ghost Detective novel so great is that it borrows the best conventions of genre fiction–in TV, movies, comics and literature–and turns them … Continue reading
