Saints Row 2 is more inspired than The Third

I finished the original Saints Row and Saints Row 2 and remember them both very fondly; I was excited when the hub-bub around The Third started to get rolling as the game looked like more over-the-top, don’t-take-your-too-seriously shenanigans that made 1 and 2 so much fun in the first place. When it came time to […]

Duke Nukem Forever (PC) Review

Summary If you can appreciate Duke Nukem Forever for what it is, a game that should have come out 6 years ago, and stop expecting it to compete with modern shooters, you will get some enjoyment out of it, but there are still rough edges everywhere that will make playing it seem like a chore […]

Fenix PD30 R5 LED Flashlight Video Review

Introduction [8.5 out of 10] The Fenix PD30 (we reviewed the R5 revision) is a tactical, personal-sized super-flashlight. With a maximum output of 257 lumens on the highest setting (2hr runtime), durable shock and water-resistent design and varying modes of operation, the PD30 gets a strong recommendation from us for anyone wanting to get a […]

The Box Movie Review

Summary [9 out of 10] The Box was a poorly marketed Sci-Fi thriller based on a short story with (what I found) to be a great extension of the source material with a very creative and well-told Sci-Fi story of it’s own. I never got the impression from the trailers of the movie that it […]

My Thoughts on Finishing the Original Crysis

SPOILER WARNING: I am discussing my thoughts on finishing Crysis (finally) so spoilers will be present. I bought Crysis a year or so after it came out via EA’s online store and as much media as I had consumed before the game’s release, I was still blown away by the graphics. I played the game […]

The UnderGarden (Xbox Live Arcade) Review

Summary The UnderGarden is a cute, artistic and calming romp through a bioluminescent underwater world full of dormant plants that you need to repopulate. The only challenges you encounter in the game are physics puzzles that must be solved to continue through the level. The use of simple, tonal music combined with the colorful flora […]

JVC PICSIO GC-WP10 Pocket Camcorder

JVC PICSIO GC-WP10 Pocket Cam Video Review

Summary The JVC PICSIO GC-WP10 is a personal video recorder in direct competition with the likes of the Flip video recorders; unfortunately for JVC, totally average optics and an sluggish custom OS from JVC leave this device unable to efficiently compete with higher end smart phones or even middle of the road digital cameras with […]

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West (Xbox 360) Review

Introduction Enslaved: Odyssey to the West is Ninja Theory’s 2nd epic adventure after their landmark 2007 PS3-exclusive, Heavenly Sword. Enslaved has all the ear-marks of an epic Ninja Theory adventure except some weak character interactions and budget constraints near the end don’t bolster the title into an edge of your seat adventure like it could […]

PlayStation Move Review (including Video Review)

Introduction The PlayStation Move is Sony’s move in the “motion controller” arena going up against the entrenched Nintendo Wii and the upcoming camera-only based Kinect from Microsoft for the Xbox 360. We’ve put the PlayStation Move through it’s paces, making sure to try and focus on the controller’s functionality and not so much the video […]

Emails From an A**hole Book Review

Emails from an Asshole: Real People Being Stupid is the book form of the hilariously ingenious (and simple) website by John Lindsay: DontEvenReply.com I only became aware of Emails from an Asshole (I will refer to this as EFAA from now on) after completing my read-through of Sh*t My Dad Says and enjoying it quite […]

Grace (2009) Movie Review

Summary Grace is dark, moody, subtle, intelligent and above all, horrifying. Paul Solet has managed to put together a horror movie with a cast so talented and characters so well acted in this soup of subtle, magnetic misery that this film’s “horror” doesn’t come from overt use of gore, but rather disturbing imagery that is […]

Book of Blood Movie Mini-Review

Introduction Book of Blood is not a classic Clive Barker horror movie in the “insane creatures and rampant gore” sense, but it is an interesting story told in a very creative way. Review Unfortunately for me, I rented Book of Blood at the drop of a hat after I came across the screen cap from […]
