Wait, what the hell is this game?

Last week, on Retroforce GO!, someone asked the crew what video games they got from their parents that they didn’t ask for. While the question was (it seemed to me) supposed to be about bad games that they got, it got me thinking. I don’t remember getting any games that I didn’t like from my […]

My name is Bruce Campbell

YES! He’s back! While it may not be the new Evil Dead movie that has been talked about again and again, it’s still a movie where Bruce Campbell kicks evil’s ass. And frankly, I’m excited for it. Check out the trailer courtesy of Apple.

From the Retroforce GO! Casefiles: V-Day

Just, fire and… and flames, just flames are pouring from the buildings now, there’s cars toppled, buildings, entire, just… crushed and crumbled. I’m not sure if it’s safe to report from my vantage point, I — I really need to leave. Civil defenses inform me that the surrounding areas are, are in ruin. I… I […]

This is why I love Star Wars novels

Leia: “Han?” Han: “Yeah, sweetie.” Leia: “How do you teach a man not to be a noble, long-suffering, self-sacrificing idiot?” Han: “I don’t know, sweetie. Mostly I shoot them.” Leia: “I’ll consider that.”

Oh, how the mighty have fallen…

I just watched last night’s episode of Chuck . For a show that I just got done praising as “the best show on television”, it has certainly fallen far from the tree with one glaringly ridiculous episode. ATARI FOUNDED BY A JAPANESE MAN?! Are you kidding me?!! What self-respecting American nerd makes that mistake? Did […]
