Review | Quest for Infamy

Aug 18, 2014

Every once in a while, there comes a game so perfect, so enthralling that it seems to have been crafted by angels and delivered from heaven unto the mortal gamers. A special kind of experience that forever leaves its mark in your mind, the kind you will look back upon fondly for years to come. But Quest for Infamy isn’t one of those games. No, my friend,...

24: Live Another Day Season Finale Review

Jul 15, 2014

Live Another Day‘s grand finale is here at last, and it promises to be an explosive sendoff. Fasten your seatbelts, please. The Chinese government is still dubious of Heller’s claims that Cheng was behind the attack on their vessel. President Wei has begun moving the Chinese Navy towards Okinawa in a hostile posture. Meanwhile, Heller and friends...

In the penultimate episode of Live Another Day AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Cheng Zhi is such a lovely villain; it’s really great to see him play such a direct role in the season while before he mostly drifted in and out of the show being evil as needed. I don’t think that he’ll disappear into the ether again at the end of Day 9 – I think he’s...

Jul 4, 2014

It’s episode 10 of 24: Live Another Day, full of betrayal, enhanced interrogation techniques, and the return of a familiar face. As much as I am disappointed by The Navarro Thing, Jack’s pursuit of him is quite suspenseful nevertheless. Navarro proves to be surprisingly resourceful as he jacks a British soldier’s machine gun and sends a spray...

In the ninth episode of Live Another Day, Jack employs a clever ruse, shots are fired, and I am grinding my teeth. In the President’s office, Audrey, Mark, and Prime Minister Davies are all looking on in horror at the smouldering crater in the middle of Wembley Stadium, but in Casa del al-Harazi, Ian’s noticed something’s off – the...

24: Live Another Day Episode 8 Review

Jun 20, 2014

24 returns with its 200th episode, in which bad things occur. I was somewhat surprised to see Robert Cochran’s writing credit come up. He created the show along with Joel Surnow, but Cochran left his role as executive producer midway through Season 7 (as did Surnow), penning his final episode of the original run in February of 2009.  I wasn’t aware...

I’m sure you’re all still reveling in the annual gaming bounty E3 brings to us like a Santa Claus who expects to get paid, but perhaps you could find it in your hearts to spare a thought for Jack Bauer? If you could just spare thirty seconds to listen to the story of Jack Bauer and welcome him into your hearts, you too could have a personal...

Well, well. It’s episode six of 24: Live Another Day. Halfway point, bitches! So, Mark is still an execrable sack of poop. I don’t like him at all. His little sit-down with Audrey really ground my gears to dust. Sure, he says he’s concerned about what Jack’s presence might to do her mental well-being, but I don’t believe that one...

24: Live Another Day Episode 5 Review

May 29, 2014

Live Another Day is back to Air Another Week, and this episode is a quieter affair than all the ruckus last week. Jack spends most of the hour cooped up in the President’s suite doing not much of anything but growl urgently. I can’t say I mind – on 24, our characters almost never get a breather. Kate and Erik are similarly sidelined for the most...
