The Network Roundup: Pax-tastic

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 were quite god t...

The Network Roundup: Praise Billith

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 it. Plenty of st...

The 2012 Pokemon Masters have been crowned

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 World Champions...

The Network Roundup: The Jaws of love

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 promotion. Altho...

The Network Roundup: Mars!

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 happen to catch ...

The Network Roundup: The Doctor returns

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 last we'll see ...

The Network Roundup: What's my name?

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 Lion, but I'm s...

The Network Roundup: Three-peat

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 came up with this ...

The Network Roundup: Let the games begin

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 different flavors of...

The ladies of Street Fighter X Tekken take the spotlight

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 the e-Capcom excl...

The Network Roundup: True Bloody good

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 entertainment highlight of ...

The Network Roundup: SDCC envy

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 glued to your ...

The Network Roundup: Tentacle Love

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 pass up the chanc...

The Network Roundup: Sorry it's not the future

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 yourself blessed t...

The Network Roundup: Write faster

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 thinking. The duo...

The Network Roundup: Kickstarter my weekend

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 myself looking...

The Network Roundup: Beat the heat

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 to the wonderf...

The Network Roundup: Case closed

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, topped off with wha...

The Network Roundup: Bite me

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. Maybe I'm just a ...

The Network Roundup: Sci-fi me

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 out the visuall...

The Network Roundup: The E3 effect

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 full picture, my...

The Network Roundup: The King in the far North

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 freaking ice s...

The Network Roundup: Enough with the bath salts

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 someone cracking som...
