Geekly Speaking About… “Happy Birthday to Us!”

It’s the end of another calendar year, and I thought it was the perfect opportunity for me to start working on the podcasts again, starting with some episodes that slipped through the cracks. This was recorded towards the end of May and marked the anniversary of this site being up; hence, the name of the […]

Dead Island getting a movie but do the reviews justify it?

Well, earlier this year, we all saw the awesome trailer for Dead Island, the latest in zombie-devastating video-game goodness. It looked fantastic, was beautifully shot and had what appeared to be a great budget. When the game hit, while not terrible, it didn’t seem to live up to the hype. According to Deadline, this has […]

So, the Tokyo Game Show happened this week…

What I got from this event is that I have more of the same to look forward to. Absolutely nothing stands out to me as interesting or original. Just more of the same…

Snark Busters: All Revved Up

SNARK BUSTERS: ALL REVVED UP (Alwar Games) Snark: testy or irritable; short. Combination of “snide” and “remark”. Sarcastic comment(s). A fictional animal in Lewis Carroll’s The Hunting of the Snark.

Let’s Demo! Hector: Badge of Carnage

Some of you may know my hard-on for Tell Tale Games: they are, in no small part, responsible for the resurgence of adventure games, and their recent announcement that they have the rights to make a new King’s Quest game was one of the few things that have made me squeal with delight. While some people are […]

PSN Tuesday – August 3, Launch a Sodding Cow

So this is what happens when I get excited for something. Instead of the big monthly updates to Playstation Plus content that were promised, Sony has switched to a bi-weekly system. I can’t help but feel like they’re caving in to people who were crying for more Plus content every week because they don’t understand […]

Kara’s Video of the Day: Trailer for Gran Turismo 5

So fans of the video game racing series Gran Turismo — including myself — are biting their nails (and saving up for PS3s) in anticipation of the newest game.  Set to hit November 2, Gran Turismo 5 is already promising to feature mouthwatering visuals and new tracks. “But hang on a tick, Kara,” I hear […]

Eyes on E3: Sony Comes Out Swinging

So E3 has come and gone. Microsoft had Cirque du Soleil present the Kinect. Nintendo announced pretty much everything that anyone could possibly ask of them. Sony had Kevin Butler: VP of Life, The Universe, and Everything. In his rallying cry, Kevin Butler rocked the show with a message of peace and love, calling upon […]

Eyes on E3: Star Wars: The Old Republic

I’ve never really been an MMO gamer. I’ll admit that I’d love to try my hand at them: the idea of exploring a huge world with a team of people from around the actual world is a compelling one, but really, I’m sort of poor. Monthly subscription fees have no place in my life, at […]

Bring home Scott and Rammy! (Are you seriously calling her that?)

Because you know you need a Canadian slacker in your life. As part of the massive marketing push for Scott Pilgrim vs The World, Mezco toys will be releasing plushies of the main characters, Scott Pilgrim and Ramona Flowers. Thankfully modeled on their comic incarnations, the figures will be 8 inches tall and stuffed with […]
