Old Time Hockey Announcement Trailer — Banging Heads and Scoring Goals, Good Times!

I always preferred the lower-level hockey to the NHL.  More brutal, more raw, more old-time hockey.  I’ll take the IHL Ice Dogs to the Anaheim Mighty Ducks any day.  Latter couldn’t risk even a scratch on their pretty-boy multi-millionaires like Selanne and Kariya.  This was the 1990s and old time hockey had already gone a… Read More »

RULE on Kickstarter — War in Silicon Valley?

I’m constantly thinking about war.  At the grocery store, at the office, the ball game…what if war broke out here and now?  Where would I take cover?  What am I wearing?  Where would I get guns? War is highly unlikely in my Silicon Valley neighborhood.  (Except the tech variety between Apple and Samsung and Google… Read More »

Guardians of the Galaxy 5-part episodic series — Telltale’s most RAD game yet

Teaser trailers usually don’t say much and the teaser for the Guardians of the Galaxy video game doesn’t tell us anything.  But what’s there to tell?  It’s Guardians of the Galaxy and it’s Telltale.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story — Is Galen Erso a Hero or Villain?

The Rogue One trailers have given us enough clichés and geek-talk topics to keep us busy until the movie’s release in December.  For example, what’s Darth Vader’s role?  Is that a kyber crystal that Jyn has, and if so, is she force sensitive? But the one question I can’t keep out of my mind is,… Read More »

The Station on Kickstarter — Did the Aliens deport us?

We’ve been reaching out to aliens since the mid-20th century.  And if anyone out there had the capability to pick up those radio signals from the 1930s+, then they probably would have the technology to find us where we live.  Unless, of course, they’re busy fighting a civil war. In The Station, we find the… Read More »

Tom Clancy’s The Division Trailer: Survival DLC – Expansion 2

Can’t survive in Manhattan.  Not now, not in the world of Tom Clancy’s The Division.  The city will eat you alive, and so it’s fitting that the game’s second expansion is titled, Survival. SHD agents have crashed in Manhattan in the middle of a harsh winter.  Need to survive the elements but also the roaming… Read More »
