Way back at Pax Prime 2011 we picked the original iOS darling, SQUIDS as our game of show. Now, SQUIDS is back in the new installment, SQUIDS Wild West, and it more than stands up to its predecessor.
I'll just get this out of the way in the beginning. If you were coming to this with the expectation that it would pick up right where Sam Raimi's dancing, emo Spider-Man left off then you will not be happy.…
Remember Harebrained Schemes? They made a whole lot of hub bub about a little game called Shadowrun a ways back on a tiny site called Kickstarter. Well lest you think they've been rolling in piles of money since then, they've been working…
It’s not very often that we encounter a game that is simultaneously absurd, frustrating, funny, strange, and polarizing. Welcome to the hack and slash world of Lollipop Chainsaw from Suda51 and co.
“…Along with the mind-blowing cinematography, fun on-the-edge-of-your-seat scenes and interesting characters, there is a pretty gnarly part which provoked me to leave the theatre for a minute to get some fresh air. Yep. I almost passed out. I can handle horror movies and icky violence, but this particular scene struck a phobia chord. However, even with the onset of sweaty lightheadedness, I still think the scene was done well. When I looked at the faces of people around me, I could tell they were stunned, jaws clenched and brows furrowed. A few had even covered their eyes…”
Like most gamers who enjoyed playing thru Batman: Arkham City, after beating the game, I put the disc aside and moved on to the next gaming experience. But once I learned of Rocksteady’s newest DLC Harley Quinn’s Revenge, I knew I’d be suiting up again and making a return trip to Gotham. After playing thru the story, so should you.

Have you ever been sitting on your couch and wished it was a few degrees warmer? Ever left for a long weekend and forgot to change your thermostat so that your A/C didn’t run the whole time raising your power bill? Really don’t care enough about you thermostat to want to mess with it? Well then you’re in luck! The Nest Thermostat may be just what you are looking for.
A movie called “The Woman in Black” appeared in my Direct TV queue the other day and because of my unnatural obsession with all things paranormal, there was little I could do to combat its pull. Now, before you get all “OMG, I can’t believe you didn’t know about it” or “Ugh, isn’t that the one with Harry Potter not being Harry Potter” on me, hear me out. This film was quite good.

I literally screamed at a couple key points in between, so the thrill factor was certainly present.
