  • The Future of Resident Evil

    The Future of Resident Evil

    The Resident Evil franchise has been beloved to many, or at least was. Despite the release of Resident Evil: Revelations many people have given up on the franchise thanks to the horror and co-op focused mainline Resident Evil releases. A Capcom released article titled The Secret of Success “Resident Evil” stresses that “there is a constant need to gain new users” which can also be interpreted as “we want a wider audience”. The article also goes on to explain that “the […]

    Jetsons Here We Come? Smartwatch And Glass Debuts in 2013

    The smartwatch and smartglass used to be the stuff of James Bond inspired fantasy. A watch that could answer phone calls, reminders of mission objectives, and shoot out a tranquilizer dart when the situation calls for it always seemed to be a future concept. Well 2013 saw the tech world usher in a new age of wearable gear, minus the tranquilizer darts.

  • The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Review

    The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Review

    The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug had all the makings of being an overlong mess of a film. The original book The Hobbit: There and Back Again consisted of 300 pages and somehow Peter Jackson has turned that small book into a 3 movie opus. The first film An Unexpected Journey faced its fair share of criticism. A plodding pace, not enough action, and characters that acted more like rough outlines. So it would have been safe to assume that […]

  • First Reaction: White Album

    First Reaction: White Album

    My phone lit up the other day with a notification from Crunchyroll, proudly proclaiming that a new episode of White Album 2 was available for streaming. “White Album got a second season?” I muttered, bewildered.

As I mentioned when discussing the blighted […]
