Review: Battlefield 4 (PC) (7.6/ 10)

Posted by & filed under , .

Ever since Battlefield 1942 entered the fray of shooter games way back in 2002, I’ve firmly believed that the Battlefield franchise is one of the very best in the gaming world, and that, pound-for-pound and for its era, BF42 is the very best FPS title ever made.  The franchise has changed the industry by leaps […]

If you’re going to dislike Obama, learn some facts first

Posted by & filed under , , .

These days, there are two types of conservatives that get involved in any political debate.  You have the tiny, miniscule minority, who take their time to learn their facts, cede ground when it’s appropriate, and generally engage in interesting conversation.  But then you have the vast majority of mouth-breathing nincompoops that can barely stub their […]

The CBS/ Showtime blackout on Time Warner Cable is over… for now

Posted by & filed under , , , .

CBS Corp. and Time Warner Cable have finally reached an agreement over new broadcasting rights, ending a month-long blackout of CBS, Showtime, and other channels.  CBS claims Time Warner eventually gave in and agreed to their new terms.  But Time Warner subscribers shouldn’t jump for joy just yet… it’s only a matter of time before […]

HBO NO: Why is HBO’s online streaming service so terrible?

Posted by & filed under , , , , , .

HBO has the best original televsion programming in the business.  Other networks have great shows, but none can claim to have as many high-quality programs under one roof, not in the past twenty years anyway.  Why, then, does their online streaming service, HBO GO, suck as hard as it does? On paper, HBO GO is […]

Fallout 4: a wishlist

Posted by & filed under , , , , .

Fallout 4 is currently under development at Bethesda, but details regarding the next installment in the famed post-apocalyptic roleplaying game have been scarce. Still, despite the lack of information about the game, I do know one thing about it beyond any shadow of doubt: Bethesda will most likely screw it up. I’ve never really been much of […]

America needs ONE real news network

Posted by & filed under , , , , , .

Last summer, HBO teamed up with Aaron Sorkin to develop a new show based in a fictional American newsroom.  Aptly titled The Newsroom, the show picked up good ratings and positive impressions amongst viewers, while professional reviews of the program were mixed.  But those reviews did little to shed light on problems with the show.  […]

Moderately Priced GPU, Powerful Graphics This card is selling for £119.50 on Amazon.co.uk and for all you yanks out there, $149.99 on Amazon.com. For a graphics card, it’s pretty cheap, for the next model up you’re paying £227 or $299, for the 660ti, now that’s a pretty big price difference, sure you’re getting an extra […]

Why the war on bad dieting needs to end

Posted by & filed under , , , , .

Before we start this article, I need to stress to everyone reading this that I am, in fact, very, very liberal.  I voted for Obama both times, and openly support his administration.  I’m pro-choice, pro-education, pro-marriage equality… I’m very much a progressive, liberal Democrat, and proud of it.  But that doesn’t mean I blindly subscribe […]

The Following Review

Posted by & filed under , .

Once upon a midnight dreary, while he pondered, weak and weary, over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore. While he nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping. As of some gently rapping, rapping at his chamber door “’Tis some visitor,’” he muttered, “tapping at my chamber door” The producer said, “We […]

Final Fantasy XI Review 2013

Posted by & filed under , .

The first question that probably comes to mind is, “why the hell would you review a decade old game? What are you, some kind of nostalgia reviewer?” The answer to that question takes me back to the year 1823, I was a fighter pilot in Vietnam and the Nazis had managed to finally ward off […]

PlayStation 4 could put Sony back on top

Posted by & filed under , , , , , .

Sony’s PlayStation 3 was the first of their consoles to be panned and considered lackluster.  It did eventually outsell the Microsoft 360, of course, but it took a very long time for the console to build up solid momentum, and for all of the launch-era negativity stirred up by fans of the 360 and Nintendo’s […]

A typical guy’s first day using Google Glass

Posted by & filed under , , .

Google has been ramping up their advertising recently for Google Glass, the company’s new augmented reality headpiece, which is due to reach consumers sometime this year.  But the new glasses are probably going to be really expensive, and when you couple that with presumptive low stocks of the product at launch, your chances of owning […]

Zombies!!!

Posted by & filed under .

Zombies. We all love them. Some of us more than others. If you’re like me, then you’re pretty upset at the Mayans for getting our hopes up that the world was going to end on 12-21-12, and the zombie apocalypse would happen. But, then again, my hopes were up that the zombie apocalypse would happen […]
