Review: Sicario: Day of the Soldado

Review: Coco

A litany of Disney animated films have explored various cultures. Whether or not they were entirely respectful of those cultures is up for debate, but the one constant up until recently was that neither Disney nor Pixar tackled any aspects ...

Review: Aztez

Aztez immediately caught my eye for a number of reasons. The most striking of which was its distinct look. Taking cues from Mexican culture, I was wary and excited at the same time. There aren't a lot of games influenced by my culture, so I...

Mexican legislators try to ban Call of Juarez: The Cartel

The ludicrously contrived controversy over Call of Juarez: The Cartel continues with news that some Mexican legislators want the game banned. Again, it's worth pointing out that all we've seen so far is some box art. That's enough for some ...
