A nerd’s review of Peter Capaldi’s dynamic premiere as the latest Doctor Who. S8E1: “DEEP BREATH” | Writer: Steven Moffat | Director: Ben Wheatley | Runtime: 79 minutes | Air Date: 8.23.14 FYI – This post is bound to be a little longer than most because there’s so much to cover! If you’re anything like me, you’ve been impatiently waiting for this episode since…
Like most graphic novel or book inspired films, Snowpiercer departs quite a bit from the graphic novel source material. While many themes are consistent, the two stories vary in the characters and their motivations. Both the film and the novel follow a man’s visceral journey traveling from the tail end of a train to the front.…
Clay, Brian, and Antuan, ahem, go bananas over Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, a surprisingly well told, character-driven tale of revolution, peace, war, and chimpanzees riding horses while firing automatic weapons.
The double entendres fly this week as the boys sit down to chat about fart jokes, RPGs, and South Park: the Stick of Truth. After a few laughs, they dig into complex themes of Valiant Hearts: The Great War and the joys of mindless button-mashing in Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition. Intro for this week’s episode comes from RoccoW via…
Valiant Hearts is a brilliant side-scrolling puzzle game set in World War I. Players take control of soldiers, a medic and even a rescue dog to help fight for their countries.
Okay… hate is probably too strong a term, because it’s more like he’s a bit jaded. Join Clayton, Brian, and Antuan as they sift through the past and future of this beloved franchise and discuss what shows and movies they’ve been recently watching.
Hang out with Brian and Antuan while they talk about the surprisingly good sci-fi flick Edge of Tomorrow and compare the similarities and differences between TV shows Orphan Black and Dollhouse.
We question the nature of open world gaming, ask how much in-game distraction is too much, and in the middle of talking about how Watch_Dogs tackles themes of online privacy, one of us learns a valuable lesson about oversharing on Xbox Live.
This week, the guys take a look at the latest (and arguably one of the best) X-franchise film, X-Men: Days of Future Past.
On this week’s episode, the guys chat about Broforce (Steam), Super Time Force (Xbox One), and Mercenary Kings (Steam/PS4) — three very different takes on the retro action platformer.
Watch_Dogs’ Aiden Pearce is possibly the first truly 21st century hero. What makes him interesting is that he champions the attributes that we (and I hate to describe myself this way) millenials think are cool. He’s tech savvy; he’s nimble rather than strong; and most interestingly, he’s an expert multitasker.
