by Tim Finchon June 16, 2015
Amidst all the huge news from E3 about a new Mass Effect game, Fallout 4 using mods on consoles, and Xbox One being backwards compatible, Microsoft announced Rare Replay, a 30 game collection from the Rare library. While many people saw the news and thought “oh, that’s neat”, I gave a Shia LeBeouf-esque standing ovation. […]

by Tim Finchon June 15, 2015
If you’re a fan of the Hellboy series but always wondered what happened immediately after the discovery of Hellboy during World War II, then you need to pick up a copy of B.P.R.D.: 1946 – 1948 from Dark Horse Comics.

Borderlands Tannis

Borderlands, Vol. 3: Tannis & the Vault Review

by Tim Finchon May 12, 2015
The world of Borderlands is quite unique. Not only are the games amazingly stylized gun-porn murder simulators, but they have a great sense of dry, dark humor that you’ll find yourself laughing maniacally as you eviscerate enemies with acid grenades that also implode and then explode. Add in a slew of highly rated and beloved […]
