Review in Progress: WWE 2K17

I started watching WWE in earnest with this year's WrestleMania. Oh sure, my friends had occasionally convinced me to watch the odd pay-per-view, but WrestleMania 32 got me invested in the product as a whole -- it was so poorly executed, ye...   read

Review: 100ft Robot Golf

The best episode of Party Down (tied with every other episode) is “Not On Your Wife Opening Night,” in part because of its pitch-perfect community theater parody. There’s something honorable about the earnest “let&rs...   read

Red Flags is a worthy successor to the Cards Against Humanity throne

One of the weirdest moments of PAX West 2016 for me (and that's a long list, just ask Myles) was when I was flagged down on the show floor to give the card game Red Flags a shot. That in itself isn't weird; when you have a yellow media badg...   read

Dusk is trying really hard to melt your face off

I'm always really disappointed when folks cite Drew Goddard's Cabin in the Woods as an influence. For me, the best part of that movie was its meta-narrative; it played with structure and convention of a specific genre to ultimately tel...   read

For a passion project, State of Mind feels oddly lifeless
