In Defence of DC’s Media Strategy

I’m not an avid comic book reader. I read some Supergirl in middle school and high school, some Spider-Man when the movies came out, and a few video game tie-ins. I’m starting to get more into them with the New 52 giving me a place to actually start. But overall, I’m what


Cards Against Humanity: Eight Sensible Gifts For Hanukkah: Nights 1 – 3

It’s that time of year again, and Cards Against Humanity is back with another (according to them, the last they are doing) gift program.  This year we get the Eight Sensible Gifts For Hanukkah.  Being born and raised Jewish myself, I can confirm that CAH went all out with every stereotypical Jewish humor


Buying Your First Turntable

It’s Holiday time, and some of you may be asking for your first turntable or looking to buy one for that special someone. (It’s too late for this, but how awesome would a turntable and seven records be for Hanukkah?) But it’s hard to know what to get, especially when articles “for


Music Review: Ambush Vin – SciFi Music

I’m a sucker for concept albums. And when those concept albums branch into other media to create a story, I’m sold. So when Ambush Vin contacted us about his newest nerdcore album SciFi Music, complete with continuing ebook, comic, and music video detailing the battle, he had my attention. The passion that


Some Thoughts On The Muppets

I eagerly watched the premiere of The Muppets last week, along with many other people.  I’ve been surprised at the backlash the show has received.  Reviewers are claiming the show is too mature, perverted, and that this incarnation of The Muppets is “raping their childhood.”  Anyone crying out things like this likely


I Took The Rocksmith 60 Day Challenge

Note: There are two versions of Rocksmith. There is the original Rocksmith and Rocksmith 2014. I play the newer Rocksmith 2014, but will just be referring to it as Rocksmith in this post because Ubisoft has said it’s a replacement not a sequel. Oh and while I’m making a note. I bought


Book Review: The Martian

The Martian has been getting high praise from the geek community for a while now, which isn’t surprising at all. It is a story about astronaut Mark Watney, who ends up stranded on Mars during a mission and must use his skills, knowledge, and wit to survive. This is the kind of


Ex Machina: Nicole’s Take (Spoilers)

When I rented Ex Machina this weekend, I wasn’t planning on writing a review on it. After all, Ryan covered it when he saw it in the theatre. But, Ryan was restrained by making his review spoiler-free. (Since the movie was released in theatres in April, and on DVD in July I think


Indie Game Alliance: Empowering Creators

My favorite part of Gen Con isn’t the games. It isn’t feeding off the energy of the crowd. It isn’t all the cool stuff available in the expo hall. It’s seeing the small independent game companies trying to make a name for themselves. It’s not that I don’t love big name games.


Book Review: Armada by Ernest Cline

Let’s get this out of the way first: No, this is not as good as Ready Player One. Ready Player One was a story that felt new, a different approach to sci-fi. Armada isn’t that. However, it’s still a good book in it’s own right. Armanda is the story of Zach Lightman, a teenager
