The Cold Opening was rather succinct, and it got to the point rather quickly. Continuing from the end of last week’s episode, Eric and Pam are captured by the Yakuza while…

The Wolf Among Us: The Pixcelation Review

wolf_among_us.0_cinema_640.0

Recently, Nick Behrens  and myself published an  article discussing Telltale’s  place in the new gaming  industry, which was  mostly sparked by the  topic of this review, The  Wolf Among Us. While the  series had a strong  beginning with a very  interesting premise, the  conflict resolution failed  to satisfy this reviewer.

For those unfamiliar with  the concept, The Wolf  Among Usis based on…

Sailor Moon Crystal Episode 2 started off as expected; since Episode 1 gave us a short and sweet glimpse of Ami Mizuno, Sailor Mercury, it only made sense that Episode 2 delved right into Ami’s story from the outset.

Throwback Thursday: The Legend of Dragoon

Let’s take it it back to the year 2000. It was the start of a new millennium. George W. Bush claimed the Oval Office. Charles Schulz published his final “Peanuts” comic.

Ten years have passed since the events of Rise of the Planet of Apes, in which Caesar and the rest of the primates that were tested on escaped from…

Recap/Review: True Blood 5×05: Lost Cause

This was actually one of the happier episodes of this season, believe it or not. Especially with a title like “Lost Cause,” it might make one think we’d have a lot of loss this week. But surprisingly, no one died. Yeah, you heard it here. No one died. As surprising as that fact may be, would you like to know what ISN’T surprising? The staggering amount of relationship drama in this episode.
