Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days Gameplay Trailer — Rewind the Mayhem

Not sure if Mr. Tarantino approved Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days, but the game’s happening and the gameplay trailer shows an interesting QT-esque mechanic: rewind time, get in the head of a different character. Basically, it’s what it sounds like.  Play with one character, go back in time, play the same moment with a different character. … Read More »

Tank Warfare: Tunisia 1943 — Brutal Desert Warfare comes to Steam

Prey Hardware Labs Trailer — Yu got some Swag!

Last year’s gameplay trailer for Prey didn’t wow me, but the Hardware/Weapons video is a different story. Bethesda’s FPS/RPG (about a space station gone alien-hostile) has some gnarly goods. First up gnarly is a grenadish thing called a Recycler Charge. It’s like a mini-black hole.  Throw it, sucks stuff in.  Who doesn’t want a mini-black… Read More »

Surf World Series — Surfing that won’t kill you…hopefully.

I tried surfing once.  I almost died. Got caught under, board came up and smacked me on the bridge of the nose.  Spun under and tried swimming back but too disoriented. Eventually made it back somehow but I was done with surfing. Needless to say, I’m not a big surfing guy, not even in video… Read More »

The Occupation — Finding the truth was harder…and more fun…in the 1980s

The 1980s is the best setting for a mystery. Why? No Internet.  No social media.  No smart phones.  Actually, no cell phones and only doctors had pagers. Too many movies these days have guys discovering some plot-driving truth simply by Googling it.  Back in the ‘80s, folks had to dig for the truth…sometimes literally.  Much… Read More »

Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days — As good as the ear-cutting scene?

Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs has one of the best ear-cutting scenes in cinema history.  It might even be the best mutilation scene ever.  What makes it great? It doesn’t actually show it. Yep, like a good book, the picture is painted in our brains, which makes it much more intense.  And intensity is at the heart… Read More »
