The Beatles Rock Band: My Two Cents

Left 4 Dead 2 E3 Announcement: My Two Cents

Sim Racing Guide - Part One: Racing Theory

Comic Review Double Whammy: Shooting War & Coward

Shooting War Anthony Lappť Grand Central Publishing Going into this, I didnít realize how much of a chore it would be to review this book. When youíve got a piece of literature that deals with social commentary, itís difficult not to let ...

 
 
 

I'm A Zombie! I Return From the Dead!

Comic Review: Frank Miller's Robocop

Frank Miller - Steven Grant - Juan Jose Ryp Avatar Press The original Robocop was fantastic. It was funny, violent, and it had some things to say about society (though not intelligently). The movie bordered on a thin line of acceptable ri...

 
 
 

Comic Review Double Whammy: Fell & Wormwood

Fell: Feral City - Vol 1. Warren Ellis - Ben Templesmith Image Comics The Super hero genre is one that I donít enthusiastically read anymore. Itís not that I hate super heroes or think Iím too old. I just donít see much quality in the ge...

Comic Review: Batman Dark Mask

Extending the contest to yesterday didn't really get me anymore entries, but you know what? It doesn't matter because the entries I got were freaking incredible. The sad part about this post is that I have to tell people they lost, and it...

 
 
 

My Two Cents: Mirror's Edge (PC)

Thereís something about games that get any type of hype that lures in the haters. Whether youíre Grand Theft Auto IV, Metal Gear Solid 4, or Halo 3, those games just canít get off peopleís minds. Perhaps itís the expectation, or maybe itĎs...
