  • Chrono Trigger Endurance Run! [GO/ER]

    Were you thinking, “Boy, I wish Giant Bomb would do another Endurance Run so that my life could be complete yet again…”? Well worry no more!

  • What I’ve Been Doing 28 Nov 2011 [FB/IB/F/BT/GO]

    Between Thanksgiving and my quick jaunt up to New York to watch Cornell get robbed of a win by bad officiating, I didn’t have much time to consume media. Here’s what I managed: Movies Source Code – Watched the last half hour with Duffy this week. I don’t understand why people don’t like the ending […]

  • The Films of Christopher Nolan [FB/ER]

    Kees van Dijkhuizen gets to my favorite director in his “The Films of” series. These movies are truly astounding and I can (and have) watch them endlessly. Nolan is a true auteur.

  • Locura [U]

    For some reason I had this story come back into my mind the other night. Let me set the stage for you: This happened when I was 17. My senior year of high school was about 1/4 done. That summer I’d started dating a girl I met at my job at Busch Gardens. She was […]

  • The Hunger Games Trailer [FB]

    Yeah, the trailer’s been out a while, but I only recently got around to watching it. Should be pretty awesome. Jennifer Lawrence looks like she’s gonna do a stellar job. Can’t wait.

  • The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword First Impressions [GO]

    Skyrim and Skyward Sword are two vastly different games, but playing Skyward Sword made me realize just what felt off about Skyrim. It’s that uncanny valley problem again. When your game strives for photorealism as much as Skyrim does, it can’t help but feel a little off when your character doesn’t move like a real […]

  • What I’ve Been Doing 21 Nov 2011 [FB/IB/F/BT/GO]

    This was a really video game and TV heavy weekend. Two big “Sky” games in Skyrim and Skyward Sword hit and I put in pretty good time with both. Movies Wow, I’m surprised I didn’t get one in this week again. TV Fringe – My momentum has slowed somewhat on the show thanks to all […]

  • Skyrim First Impressions [GO]

    Well, guys, I finally did it. After all the hype and all the insistence of my friends, I plopped down $60 and bought me Skyrim. Mind you, I found Fallout 3 to be dull most of the time and marginally entertaining at other times and I never had even the slightest interest in playing Oblivion, […]
