I hope Kylo Ren isn't lame
Oct 12
// Chris Carter
I'm so torn on Kylo Ren. On one hand, he looks awesome, has a sufficiently cool-sounding backstory, and the fact that he's "not a Sith" is intriguing. On the other, he's played by Adam Driver, the absolute worst character on ...

This month, a ton of plastic shit showed up at my doorstop. Not that I'm complaining, I love this job, but man does it take up a lot of physical space! To kick things off I've been playing Rock Band 4 for roughly a week ...

Even Pikachu is an intern

(He forgot to wear pants, though)
Sep 10
// Jordan Devore
Pikachu wants a good job so he can start a family, but he's up against over 700 other candidates and "lacks experience." But the thing is, he can't get sufficient experience without a job. So he has become an intern. Unpaid, I assume. Poor, poor Pikachu.

Nendoroid figures will bankrupt me: Here's MGS V's Venom Snake

Sep 09
// Chris Carter
I wish I could afford every Nendoroid. They're so wonderfully made and span so many beloved franchises, I'd buy nearly all of them. That includes this figure for Venom Snake, which was unveiled by Kojima recently. This is a final sample, and although no date was given, we can reasonably assume the price as compared to the rest of the line. Hideo Kojima [Twitter]
