Jan 14
// Hiroko Yamamura
Leave it to the government to stomp on the American dream. The dream of our very own fully operational Death Star. The people of America took their voice to the Obama administration, about the need for a $850,000,00...

The Network Roundup: What's your resolution?


Not of your monitor silly!
Jan 02
// Hiroko Yamamura
Just look at those calendars, 2013. Isn't it such a futuristic sounding number? I guess so many sci-fi things I love always had the dates of 2012, making 2013 sound so far away. Along with a snazzy new date stamp comes the an...

Sorry Mayans
Dec 21
// Hiroko Yamamura
As I awoke from slumber this morning, a small wave of sadness hit me... The world hadn't turned into some futuristic, alien, zombie apocalypse. Sure, the reality of the end of the world is probably the wor...

The Network Roundup: Keep Trekking


Mmmm Cumberbatch
Dec 10
// Hiroko Yamamura
While Trekkies may be doubting wether the latest sci-fi/action movie from J.J. Abrams reboots truly deserve the Star Trek title. I just can't stop watching the trailer for the upcoming entry, Star Trek Into Darknes...

What would you do if you won?
Nov 28
// Hiroko Yamamura
If you went to any kind of day job in the States today, your conversations probably included a mention of tonight's interstate Powerball drawing. Clocking in at a sweet $550 million, the little gamble was too m...

Nov 26
// Hiroko Yamamura
The interwebs were full of some pretty sweet deals over the last few days, with all the excitement leading to the magical day known to us as Cyber Monday! Ok, maybe the video game deals weren't as fabulous as the on...

Nov 09

Oct 10
// Hiroko Yamamura
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...

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...

The Network Roundup: Everyone needs a robotic mule


Why didn't they kick this one?
Sep 10
// Hiroko Yamamura
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...

Mass Effect anime delayed


Won't be making it into your N7 stockings this Christmas
Sep 07
// Hiroko Yamamura
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...

The Network Roundup: Praise Billith


Aug 29
// Hiroko Yamamura
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...

Aug 13
// Hiroko Yamamura

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...
