He also goes to bars with an NES controller hoping that entering the Konami code will give him thirty chances with the drunk chick at the bar. His interests include vodka, old-school games, women, vodka, and women gamers who drink vodka.

The MCU May Be Getting Awful Fox-y

How one deal might supercharge the Marvel Cinematic Universe It was during my second viewing of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 that it finally hit me. My first viewing was at Cinébistro, a posh, adults-only theater that serves awesome food and fruity drinks. They have a full bar, though, so I was able to have a vodka tonic. I was accompanied by a lovely female friend who I dragged along because I ...[Read More]

Have You Seen…Night of the Creeps?

Release Date: August 22, 1986 Director: Fred Dekker Starring: Jason Lively, Tom Atkins, Steve Marshall, Jill Whitlow, Allan Kayser, Robert Kino Favorite quote: “Screaming like banshees!” – Mr. Miner The 80’s were an incredible time for schlocky, ultra-cheesy “horror” movies. I was in my teens during this decade, and many of my most loved memories involve campy-as-shit movies trying to horrify my j...[Read More]

Retro Review: Demon Attack (Atari 2600)

Release Date: 1982 Developer: Imagic Publisher: Imagic Imitation is considered the sincerest form of flattery. In video games nowadays, it’s seen by many as derivative and lazy. Back in the second generation of home video game consoles, it was almost inevitable. Imagic’s Demon Attack at least imitated with some style. Back in the early years of home video gaming, ideas for new games came in fast a...[Read More]

How Nintendo Can Rule the World: Nintendo Now

Or…Why Nintendo is not from this planet! Sometimes, a story hits you and short-circuits everything in your brain. I have spent the last week struggling to write an article that summed up my feelings about Xbox’s Project Scorpio. I watched Digital Foundry’s summation of the upcoming console’s specs, then toiled about how I would express my feelings about the console, its specs, and its place in the...[Read More]

Being a Dick about Movies

CinemaSins can’t have the monopoly Sundays are a religious holiday for me. I’m not actually religious, but my Sundays are sacrosanct to me. I refuse to do any real work on those days. I work in IT, so trying to maintain that habit can be difficult. But I rationalize my situation as easily as possible. Unless a server actually catches fire, I’m not worried about doing my job. It’s during this self-...[Read More]

Reviewing It Wrong: Final Fantasy VII as a Beat-‘em-Up

Couldn’t punch its way out of a bag (Note: this is a parody series where we review a beloved game incorrectly. This is not serious. Please don’t kill us!) I really don’t get why people are so into Final Fantasy VII. Honestly, the whole Final Fantasy series prior to 2016 baffles me. How can people idolize a series that gets beat-‘em-ups so wrong? I love games where you can beat people up. The...[Read More]
