Today celebrated the birthday of famous astrophysicist, astronomer, and cosmologist, Carl Sagan. To me, he will forever be the guy that could make anything sound amazing, and our world feel so small. There have been man...


Today's Network Roundup is dedicated to our East Coast friends and family, currently dealing with varying degrees of Hurricane Sandy's wrath. We're even getting effects all the way in Chicago right now, I ...


Sometimes the world can still amaze you. Yesterday, Felix Baumgartner went 23 miles up into the sky, and just jumped. The footage of the Red Bull sponsored event broke numerous records, the...


So the first half of the new season of Dr. Who has wrapped. After many hints and and insinuations, the Pond family has finally left the building. I'm afraid to say that I just won't miss them. Sure, Karen Gillian wa...


It's hard to imagine that it was 30 years ago yesterday, The Super Dimension Fortress Macross hit the airwaves in Japan. The first series which consisted of 36 episodes would forever change my life, and h...


I stand before you defeated today. I spent the entirety of my Monday unsuccessfully attempting to purchase the new Habro edition of Transformers: Masterpiece Optimus Prime. I can't explain how saddening&nb...


I once again have hope for the world. It turns out a new species of monkey has been discovered in the jungle of Congo. What makes me so giddy is not the fact that there is still undiscovered life on this planet, but...


It looks like famous mechanical mule BigDog now has a big brother. The new brainchild of DARPA and Boston Dynamics is on the loose, and this time AlphaDog seems to want to follow you home. Too bad there's no video of kicking...


During my Mass Effect 3 experince, Lieutenant James Vega never really caught my attention. It could have been Freddie Prinze Jr's voice acting, the character's backstory, or just his design. Dude just gave my FemShep the cre...


As our hung-over reporters stumble home from a memorable PAX this year, we take a quick look back at what stood out. Both Destructoid, and Japanator were on hand to cover the action. It seems as though the parties w...


This season's True Blood was quite entertaining to say the least. Many will argue how most of the season didn't make much sense, or how many important issues were glossed over in the last few episodes. Me? I loved i...


I hope you didn't think the Olympics were the only competitions that mattered last week. The top 400 Pokemon Trainers in the world descended onto sunny Hawaii, where the Pokemon Company International hosted the 2012 Pokemon ...


That uncanny sense of dread that's been hanging over you can only mean one thing, it's Shark Week. I think the only other time I get this excited about salt-water based news, is when Red Lobster kicks off its Endless Shrimp p...


What else matters than the Curiosity Rover landing on Mars? Things don't get much more exciting than space exploration, and being able to control a Mars rover for even just a moment, would be a dream come true. Did you guys h...


I always get so excited around this time of year! My jovial attitude can only mean one thing! The return of Doctor Who. This season's trailer boats some interesting old favorites, some sweet special effects, and perhaps the ...


Once known as Calvin Broadus, Snoop Dogg should now be referred to as Snoop Lion. I don't know enough about Mr. Lion to tell you why he decided to hold onto the Snoop portion of his name, or if he will next be Mountain Snoop ...


As part of an exciting new exhibit, Namco Bandai's Katamari Damacy will be shown at New York's Museum of Modern Art. Century of the Child: Growing by Design, 1900-2000 will explore the world in which children, and c...


People like to like things in sets of threes, perhaps it's just a tidy little number. Movies are especially prone to follow the trilogy experience, particularly after they are successful. Who cam...


Today kicked off the opening ceremonies for the 2012 Olympic Games in London, England. The world's best and brightest will take part in a test of will, strength, courage, and ability! I however, will be testing the diffe...


Fellas, don't you wish your fighting games could cut back on the testosterone levels every once in a while, and pump up the pretty lady action? Capcom might not quite be there yet, but they sure like to tease the idea with th...


I had the pleasure of checking out Christopher Nolan's fantastic end to the Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises this weekend. Forget what you heard, it's great. However, it's not what's sticking out as the entertainmen...


Well, here I am dealing with stacks of budget reports and other boring nonsense, while my co-workers across the network descend on San Diego Comic-con and other exciting gatherings. It's a pretty exciting time to be...


Been wondering where your Network Roundup had wandered off to? Japan Expo in Paris, France to be exact. Anime, manga, and video games action aplenty, and of course, cool French people, and like minded comradery. I couldn't pa...


Despite all the pictures floating around Facebook and Twitter, today was is not the date that Doc Brown had set for the DeLorean in Back to the Future. None of your friends share the Photpshopped image above to you? Count you...


Thought you were done with Game of Thrones roundups? I thought we were going to take a bit of a break until next season's news started rolling in, but I couldn't help but share with you, a song about what we all were th...


Alright, it's Friday and time to start off the weekend! Why is it that I again find myself obsessed with some small pocket of the interweb? Instead of looking at news and the usual celebrity gossip, I find...


No, I'm not talking about basketball. I'm talking about this nasty thing called summer. The time when my electricity bill's through the roof, and my PC's coolings fans kick on to overdrive. Every year I look forward...


Last night wrapped up the second, and I assume final season of AMC's The Killing. I didn't know what to think of the show at first, but man, I loved that show. Classic murder/ mystery with a super gritty Twin Peaks vibe, topp...


Last night celebrated True Blood's highly anticipated return to glorious premium TV service. After the doozy that was last season, I have to admit that last night's episode was pretty darn entertaining. Ma...


It was both an exciting and somber week of science fiction for me. As my dear Game of Thrones was wrapping up its season I turn my eyes from fantasy fiction, over to my all time love, science fiction. I had a chance to check ...


I know some of you haven't been too impressed with E3's offerings this year, but all the gaming activity and interest gets me really excited. Sometimes when we only see a glimpse of possibilities, and not the f...


Yes we've made it. My final Network Roundup of season dedicated to my dear King Joffrey! Well actually, this is dedicated to the guy leading the White Walkers. I dub you King in the far North! Did you check out that...


For this edition of The Network Roundup, I am making a public plea. No more zombie bath salts jokes! For the last couple days I haven't been able to get on the train, go to work, or especially enter social media without someo...


Nintendo DS pirates and home-brew hopefuls expecting to pick up a software loading card in Japan may need to start making other plans. Recently there was an amendment to the Unfair Competition Pr...


Woe is me. Only one more episode left of this season's Game of Thrones, but last week's sure delivered. After all the build up I was wondering how they would employ the deadly Wild Fire on screen. I loved it, in all...


Memorial Day weekend always signifies some poignent things for me. Remembering those who serve for our freedom, plenty of rest, and a whole lot of grilling delicious meats are always on the agenda. I'm far from bein...


I'm not sure if it made a blip on your radar or not, but yesterday was World Goth Day. In high school I fancied quite a few bands that might be considered goth at the time, and maybe wore my eyeliner on the heavy side. These ...


I just can't believe it. There's only two more weeks left of Game of Thrones? What am I going to do without my dear King Joffrey and his intent to carve some red smiles? The sneak preview of next week's episode looks to be pr...


Even the discerning tastes of Sanji would be excited by these new One Piece: Pirate Warrior's images. The are great shots of some of the in game environments, and thankfully the first Arlong arc looks faithfully&nbs...


Sick of all the Diablo III complaining and news? I'm just happy to be playing. With my hectic work and writing schedule, playing games is something I set certain times of night aside for. Unfortunately, those times had n...
