Mortal Kombat is the best game movie ever made, fools!

Over on The Escapist, where my weekly Jimquisition episodes are hosted, I also have another show that many of you likely don't know about. It's called Movie Defense Force, a film review show where I take movies that have bee...

Awakened is a game that may very well be brilliant

There once was a game called Hero, a Midway project about customizable superheroes that looked incredibly promising, but was sunk when the publisher collapsed. Many of the game's developers have banded together under the nam...
