Gaming Review – inFamous 2 (PS3 exclusive)
As far as I am concerned controlling electricity is not a power I would want to possess if I had my pick because I don’t plan on forgoing showers anytime soon. Good thing this isn’t The Sims and hygiene really isn’t a concern to Cole, the protagonist reprising his role in InFamous 2. At the […]Read more "Gaming Review – inFamous 2 (PS3 exclusive)"
Dissecting Sucker Punch
As you have probably seen in our reviews of Sucker Punch, Lauren and I both quite like this film, but feel like it needs to be dissected further to get to its full worth. So that is why we are here partaking in a big spoiler filled discussion of Zack Snyder’s new film that will […]Read more "Dissecting Sucker Punch"
Now Playing Review – Sucker Punch
Sit tight kiddies, Lauren has got some rambling to do.

Comic-Con International 2010 – My Experience in Nerd Heaven
A couple of weeks ago I excitedly told my aunt that I was going to Comic Con in a week, with a big ol’ smile on my face. I didn’t really expect her to be jealous, but I was overly excited. Then she asked if it was a gathering of comics or something. As in […]Read more "Comic-Con International 2010 – My Experience in Nerd Heaven"
Gaming Review – inFAMOUS
(Originally written June 1, 2009) Talk about an ending… With a lot of games today the gameplay is all that seems to matter, with a story often tacked on without being smoothed out. These stories don’t necessarily take away from the gameplay, but when all is said and done it’s forgettable. But not with Infamous. […]Read more "Gaming Review – inFAMOUS"
