“The strongest trees are rooted in the dark places of the earth. Darkness will be your cloak, your shield, your mother’s milk.

Bloodborne PS4 review – Less souls, more blood, same rage quits

Bloodborne™_20150327041427

Emerging gloriously from a six-day hiatus fueled entirely by knockoff Dew, stale Cheetos, and what was once considered in human terms a “Hot Pocket”, a mixed celebration of prideful shame gave this writer the emotional roller coaster one could only receive from the sadistic genius mind of Hidetaka Miyazaki and his … Continue reading

hobbit battle five armies_BD_2D SKEW (11-20)

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is the third film in the Hobbit Trilogy. Many were disappointed with the first two films due to it feeling “thin, sort of stretched, like butter scraped over too much bread.” Does the third movie suffer the same fluff as the previous two? … Continue reading

ResidentEvilRevelations2

And so it continues another franchise has decided to follow the current trend of episodic storytelling.

Portable drives have made it so much easier to carry and transfer large data files with you everywhere you go, being that most are about the size of your wallet. With Seagate’s newest and thinnest hard drive ever, it’s nearly the thickness of an elite credit card. Being only 7mm, … Continue reading

Review: Furious 7

furious_7_one_last_ride_poster

The Fast & Furious franchise is one of the rarest anomalies in Hollywood: A franchise that gets better with each installment. It’s crazy to think that this all started 14 years ago as a movie about an undercover cop infiltrating the world of illegal Los Angeles street racing. Yet with … Continue reading

913DKscK03L._SL1500_

It’s been a long time waiting for Final Fantasy Type-0 HD in North America.

One of the many ways in which we romanticize war is through the medium of video games. For better or for worse over the past ten years (and even further), humanity’s greatest conflicts have been told  through your PC, PlayStation or Xbox. Before the franchise turned into its mother-insulting, child-swearing … Continue reading
