‘The Warriors’

Walter Hill’s “The Warriors” has always been a favorite film of mine.  It manages to hold up pretty well, despite being made in 1979.  Part of what makes it so durable is that the story is essentially a simple one, which is a gang from Coney Island comes to Manhattan for a big meeting, attended […]

‘Dead Space 3’ Trailer

I am not the hugest gamer out there, but those that involve elements of fear and paranoia have always been of interest to me. So, it goes without saying, that I have “Dead Space” on both of my iOS devices.  I like the look and feel of the game, though I have not worked out […]

Deadpool: The Video Game

One of the many things that Gavin Hood’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” got wrong was Deadpool, the anti-hero from the X-Men comics, because they turned him to a silent assassin-type, as opposed to the raging arsehole assassin-type that was in the comics. In that film Deadpool was played by Ryan Reynolds, which is interesting because Reynolds […]

Tomb Raider Video Game Trailer

Here’s the new trailer for the Square Enix’s reboot of Tomb Raider.  When it first opens, what came to mind was Neil Marshall’s “The Decent.” In fact, watching the trailer you can probably come up with lots more movies or television shows that it looks like. Some have also criticized it for Lara Croft appearing […]

‘Dragon Age: Dawn Of The Seeker’ Trailer

I am posting this because I am reasonably sure that there are enough fans of Bioware‘s “Dragon Age” video game that a trailer of the upcoming CGI-based film would interest them.  Bioware also happens to be the studio that makes the ‘Mass Effect’ series of video games. That being said, I am not a huge […]

‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ Video Game Trailer

Here’s the trailer for the upcoming “Amazing Spider-Man” video game that’s based upon Marc Webb’s upcoming feature.  I like the Iguana character, though I am not sure that’s he’s actually a part of Spider-Man’s mythology (according to Wikipedia, there is indeed a character called the Iguana, and he’s linked to the Lizard). That being said […]

The Trine is Complete

I just completed Trine, a side-scrolling video game from Frozenbyte.  It revolves around three characters: a thief–clearly the most useful of the characters, a wizard and a warrior.  Through some evil magic they are combined into one, so you can use only one particular character at once. The cool thing about this is that the […]

Marathon Saga

Before Bungie became part of Microsoft, they produced games like 1994’s Marathon.  It revolves around a spaceship, the Marathon, that’s invaded by aliens.  You’re part of the crew, tasked with the job of defending the ship so that the AI’s (artificial intelligences) that control it can marshal the ship’s defenses. I assumed that the game […]
