Motion comics. Are they the wave of the future? A kooky gimmick? Or a new tool in the comic industry’s arsenal?
Forget winter. War is coming! The second season of Game of Thrones is upon us. And there’s no better way to prepare than to enjoy the many features and all ten episodes on HBO’s exceptional Season One Blu-ray set.
I Am Alive is an ambitious, post-apocalyptic survival game where resources are few, fights are discouraged, and the air is unbreathable. It was once meant to be a retail game but it became a downloadable title instead. Is this a negative portent of the game’s quality? Not necessarily.

I’m not ashamed to say that I adored Fable II with all my being.
