Top Five Exclusives to Grab at SDCC

SDCC is infamous. It has the biggest TV shows, movies, and comic publishers. But it’s not just where all the stars go–it’s where all the toy companies will be, too. Collectibles are a big part of being a nerd, whether you’re talking about $10 action figures or $1000 replicas. Rarity is what makes a collectible really valuable, [...]

The Road Ahead for Elder Scrolls Online

Despite still being in its first year of launch, Elder Scrolls Online has already seen its share of rough times. How large that share actually is will depend on who you ask, of course. According to recent information from Superdata, ESO has over 770,000 subscribers as of June which is a fairly impressive number given [...]

I Killed a T-Rex: Review of “Beasts of Prey”

It’s a funny feeling when you think you’ve “beaten” an MMO. I mean, technically, an MMO doesn’t end until it’s canceled, and you don’t get any special end credits or cut scenes for it. “Beating” an MMO, for me means I accomplished a goal that I feel has to be done, and nothing after that [...]

BBC Releases Doctor Who Series 8 Trailer

The road leading up to Series 8 of the BBC’s Doctor Who has been a little rocky. First, some raw footage was leaked by a U.S. office. Then five scripts from the new season also made their way online. Despite this, none of the excitement was tempered when the BBC aired the official Series 8 trailer [...]

World of Warcraft: Stand-Out Quests

Like many WoW players, I have my own list of favorite quests: the ones I loved doing, and look forward to doing again on alts. I wondered, though, if my list matched anyone else’s. I decided to research the topic by scouring forums and pestering friends, and I discovered that certain quests got mentioned repeatedly. [...]

Review: The Strain

First a book, then a graphic novel, Guillermo del Toro’s The Strain has made its way on to cable TV. And it was delightful–if, to you, “delightful” means parasitic worms, disease outbreaks, and things that go bump in the night. The suspense starts right away–an airline stewardess is called to the back of the plane by her [...]

Marvel Shakes Up The Avengers

Big news hit The Avengers this week–the superhero group, not the movie–as Marvel announced big changing coming to two of the team’s founding members. It was announced on The View that the…name…of Thor will be passed yet-unknown female character, as our traditional hero has (once again) become unworthy. On The Cobert Report, we learned that Sam Wilson (Falcon) will [...]

Path of Exile: Scratching the Hardcore Itch

The time will come for all of us when our video game routine of daily quests and risk-free rewards starts to become boring and monotonous.

Top Five Shows You Should Binge Watch This Summer

There are good things about summer: sunshine, pools, no school (if you’re a student or a teacher), and longer days. There are also bad things: insect swarms, herds of children everywhere and—worst of all—pretty much no new TV. That’s why summer is the optimal time to binge watch shows, whether online or on DVD. After [...]

Top Five Most Cosplayed Characters

Over the past few years, cosplay has exploded in popularity. It’s no longer limited to the most devout attendees of anime conventions—I’ve been to cons where the cosplayers outnumber those in street clothes! (Admittedly, those were smaller cons…but still!) The rise in cosplayers has shown that some characters really do get all the love—you can [...]

Over Exposure: You Coruscan’t always get what you want

This is Over Exposure, an investigative look at the galaxy around us to find out what is really going on behind those closed blast doors.

Force Reflection: Where’s the love gone?

As most of us and the rest of the galaxy know, the Jedi and Sith hate each other. Nothing new, as they’ve been doing that for a few thousand years. Mutual destruction is the purpose of their existence. Why? Because they are fundamentally different. The Jedi are all about denying one’s emotions, suppressing them so [...]

Tomodachi Life: The Sims Meets Animal Crossing?

When I first saw Tomodachi Life for 3DS in Japan, I was pretty excited. My Japanese isn’t too great, but I was still really tempted to buy it, and maybe I should have. It’s a game with a fairly modern setting, with open gameplay, and (from what I’ve learned from doing this review) is a reasonably [...]
