Sometimes all you need is a little information to understand why something is great. Up until I had the chance to talk with Zen Studios’s Mel Kirk and Neil Sorens, I enjoyed Zen Pinball HD, but I didn’t appreciate what it was doing. Zen Studios is putting out the best digital pinball tables on the market and they have acquired such fantastic licenses like...

After Earth Review

After Earth Review

May 31, 2013

Up until moments before the movie started, I knew that After Earth was a science fiction movie starring Will Smith and his son Jaden. Then I found out that it was directed and partially written by M Night Shyamalan and that wave of dread that can only be found from thinking you’re about to watch a terrible movie.

Now You See Me Review

We, as a culture, love magic. The Harry Potter movies are some of the highest grossing films of all time and The Prestige and The Illusionist are both personal favorites of mine. Now You See Me is a movie that I didn’t hear about until recently and one I fear will be buried under the glut of summer. It’s the story of four street magicians who combine their...

The Saints Row series has always been the sillier, over-the-top parallel to Rockstar’s more somber, serious Grand Theft Auto series.
