MOVIE REVIEW - The Dark Knight Rises

Posted July 26th 2012 by Frankie Aguilar.

We've all known since the end of The Dark Knight that the Batman story, at least Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale's version, would be coming to an end. So the anticipation of resolution to four years worth of fan speculation is basically a stent put in place to protect against the hemorrhage that'll result from the ending. For many people, this version of Batman is the only Batman they know, and not just from an age standpoint, but in aversion to the Schumacher debacles or the inspired Burton flicks. This is their trilogy. This Batman feels real and rooted in a world close to ours and to think that not only is this the last time we'll experience him this way but that Warner Bros and DC are already planning a reboot feels like bringing your new fiance to your wife's funeral. Nostalgic nonsense aside, you must be wondering how this movie ended up, so here we go.

Most Wanted - July

Posted July 4th 2012 by Anthony DiPalma.

Burgers, hot dogs, and chlorine. The sweet scents of summer have us craving for our air conditioners and videogames. What could be more American than supporting the ever-growing entertainment industry we know and love? This month, we've got some titles that will make JRPG fans squeal with excitement. Why not? Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, and more will be occupying our time in the same way the hippies are occupying Wall Street under the intense heat of the summer sun.

Nintendo Direct - June 21, 2012

Posted June 23rd 2012 by Adam Grayson.

Oh, Nintendo...  It would seem the only time you don't announce news is during E3...  Lucky for us it's a whole two weeks after E3.  In case you all didn't see, last night Nintendo aired a new Nintendo Direct, Nintendo's "online home for exclusive Nintendo news," that talked about the Wii, DS, and 3DS.  I'll tell you the biggest announcement right off the bat—the 3DS XL.  Yeah.  I'll say that again.  The 3DS XL.  More info on that and more after the jump.

REVIEW - Game of Thrones

Posted June 15th 2012 by Anthony DiPalma.

There are times when a fictional universe in another medium can open up a whole realm of possibilities for gaming. Unfortunately, many licensed titles are rarely up-to-par with their film/comic/written counterparts. Yet there are, in fact, quite a few exceptions to this unwritten rule. When Cyanide Studios announced that they were working on a videogame based on the smash HBO series Game of Thrones, I was about as giddy as a drunken high school teenager on prom night. I'm a massive fanboy of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice & Fire series, so the awesome burden of reviewing Cyanide's Game of Thrones fell on my shoulders and was nestled in my arms like a newborn kitten made out of cotton candy.

Shoot to Thrill: Thoughts on E3 2012

Posted June 12th 2012 by Jordan Mammo.

A couple of weeks ago, Square-Enix unveiled the latest Hitman: Absolution trailer to a whirlwind of controversy. The video featured the main character slaughtering a number of scantily clad female assassins in slow motion after they had (naturally, of course) undressed themselves. "Distasteful" would be a massive understatement. The game spurred a passionate and sometimes enlightening discussion on the internet, as well as enough outrage to compel its developers to clarify their intent. Speaking to IGN, Tore Blystad said, "We just wanted to make something cool, it wasn't the intention to stir up anything."

This is exactly the problem. Who thinks this shit is cool? Forget subtext or any other kind of deeper meaning, this was clearly imagined and engineered for one reason and one reason alone: spectacle.

No one could've predicted this, but Hitman was only the start of two weeks of gratuitous and repulsive violence. It segued into a new Tomb Raider trailer and peaked last week with the most disturbing E3 Expo I've witnessed yet.
