As I headed home from the first annual GaymerX I was that person on mass transit—the one wearing sunglasses underground to obscure my face due to feelings. Not “feels,” actual damn feelings. “Feels” come and go; “feelings” need to be processed, reflected on. This meant I had to throw out my initial concept of what this write-up was going to be and instead, hopefully, capture the importance of GaymerX on a different level than merely panel content.
Like so many people who did not attend San Diego Comic Con I’ve been pouring over the post-convention news and analysis; searching for scraps of information of what geeky goodness is to come in entertainment. However, the article that stood out most to me wasn’t the news of a Superman/Batman movie (Aside: I kind of wrinkled my nose at that), but of an individual describing his experience in Hall H for a day.
Would Zack Snyder and crew be able to capture the “magic” of Superman or would the movie be another dud? I’m happy to say that while Man of Steel was not the movie I expected, it was certainly a bold take on the beloved hero worth seeing on the big screen.
If you’re reading this, like me, you’ve probably watched Star Trek: Into Darkness. Perhaps, like me, you also have some feelings on the topic. One could argue I am comparing apples and oranges here, but given the fact Abrams and crew made some very deliberate callbacks to a certain Star Trek film? They’re inviting comparison. So, let’s chat! Spoilers ahead, you ready?
Knights of the Old Republic is hands down one of my favorite BioWare games. The story and the characters have managed to bring a smile to my face throughout multiple play-throughs of the now classic title. However, in recent years it…
If you’re looking to check out a fun, action packed, summer popcorn flick? This is one worth watching. One thing the franchise reboot does well is action and the sequel is no exception.
The third season of Game of Thrones premieres on tonight, and the excitement is rising! The trailers tease another season of fighting, scheming, as well as other vices, against a backdrop of war and politics. There are no real heroes and even the villains can have a sympathetic presentation at times. I recently watched season two and I’m currently re-watching season one which raises the question: who am I looking forward, or not looking forward, to seeing again in the coming days? Warning: spoilers for season one and two ahead.
A heroic commander, a loyal crew, a dangerous new enemy, and, yes, a krogan. Well, if you didn’t shoot him anyway. If John Woo was going to direct Nicholas Cage in a Mass Effect movie, It would be the Citadel DLC
The Mass Efffect universe is vast in scope. There are plenty of other stories to be told on other worlds, with other characters, from the perspectives of other races. I think it’s time to let Shepard retire and see what else is out there in the galaxy. I’m really curious, and excited, to see what Bioware comes up with next!
Transitioning video games to movies, or trying to, seems to be a big thing Hollywood wants to do these days. I’ve seen articles about the possibilities of movies based on Assassin’s Creed, Mass Effect, and, of course, the World of…
After a brief hiatus, I am back to playing The Old Republic. When a friend of mine linked me to an article reacting to the announcement of the expansion for The Old Republic: Rise of the Hutt Cartel, my interest was piqued. In addition to a new planet, higher level cap, etc., the expansion will introduce the long awaited “same-gender romances” which some players have been inquiring about since SWTOR launched. I was a little excited to say the least; would Nat’s Jedi Knight finally be able to romance the adorable apprentice, Kira Carsen?
Omega is definitely a fun addition which I would recommend for anyone looking to spend a couple more hours in the Mass Effect universe. Also, if you’d like to check out NA’s chat with Mass Effect producer Mike Gamble about the making of Omega, and Mass Effect in general, check out Rated NA 32: Omega Explosion.
