You know a movie is going to be a disappointment when one of the trailers is for some bullshit animated film starring a Russian Santa Claus and an Easter Bunny that looks like he’s strung out on heroin.

Ascending Empires Board Game Review

Ascending Empires Board Game Review

Sometimes I buy things that really catches my interest and then fade away once a shinier, more interesting object appears. Such is my experience with Ascending Empires, a dexterity/strategy board game made by Z-Man Games. I bought it over five months ago, played it frequently with friends, and then two major flaws pushed it to […]

I’m used to SPURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRTHing a handful of shaving cream or gel from a can or whup whup […]

Monoprice 8323 Premium Hi-Fi DJ Style Over-the-Ear Pro Headphone Review

SPAWN MORE OVERLORDS That’s StarCraft 2 reminding me to build floating farms so I can increase the size of my army. Since I’m not the world’s best SC2 player, Sedagive? and the two boys hear this phrase quite often. Almost as much as WE REQUIRE MORE MINERALS On top of that, I was playing more […]

The Sky is Falling: My Iron Sky Review

It seemed right up my alley: an independently-made action movie with political overtones and a touch of humor.

I clean my magazines about twice a year. I hate doing it every time. The Glock pistol is easy to take down and clean, but […]
