Review: Game of Thrones – Season 1 Blu-ray

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.

Review: I Am Alive

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.

7 Wonders: The Board Game

This post is just about two years late. Yep. That’s how long it took me to finally grab a copy of 7 Wonders, easily one of the most epic board games in recent history. Released last year, 7 Wonders has already won a Cannes Jury Prize alongside 28 other awards. I’ve been playing this card […]

Review: Star Wars The Clone Wars S3 Blu-ray

It got off to a slow start, but by its midpoint, it became clear that the third season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars had found its groove, thanks to digging deeper into the Star Wars mythology, and delivering some truly epic story lines.

Review: Rage

Rage is an attempt by the makers of Doom and Quake to step outside of the box and do something unexpected. On that goal, they’ve succeeded, but you’ll never be confused about who made the game.

Review: Gears of War 3

Gears of War 3 is Epic Games at its best. Having nothing to prove, their task this time out was to provide a satisfying finale to their blockbuster game series, and it shows. With all the pressure off — Gears 3 was a guaranteed success before it was even begun — Epic was able to […]

Review: Deus Ex: Human Revolution

I can’t help comparing Deus Ex: Human Revolution to its progenitor, the original Deus Ex. Because playing through the vast, complex game, it’s clear that new studio Eidos Montreal was studying the first game very closely.

Grab some popcorn and watch this 1 hour Dragon Age 2 Demo Playthrough

How else can you satiate the anticipation for Dragon Age 2 than to sit back and watch this one hour play-through with commentary. The Dragon Age franchise is this generation’s Baldur’s Gate and I’m a bit disappointed in how its sequel has turned the combat into pretty much a standard hack and slash. Yeah, there […]

Late Review: Fable III

I’m not ashamed to say that I adored Fable II with all my being. It was a giddy, blind love — a wholehearted willingness to look past the game’s blemishes and blunders (multiplayer, I’m glaring at you) and just enjoy all the things it got right. The thrilling fights, the wide-open world with near-infinite possibilities, […]

Review: ‘Spartacus Blood & Sand’ Season One Blu-ray

The historic, real-life tale of Spartacus is not new to Hollywood. But neither history nor Hollywood have ever seen anything quite like Starz’ Spartacus: Blood & Sand. It is something wholly new, using bits of other well-known formulas in creative and clever new ways that adds up to something far greater than the sum of […]

Google makes it easier to review venues on the move

I’m sure, esteemed geeks as most of you are, you already check out reviews of restaurants, clubs and other venues online before you leave your speedy home Internet connection behind, or at least via your 3G or Wi-Fi cellphone on the move. Sensible move, though it can be a pain to piece together a decent […]

The information will be revealed in next week’s E3 Media and Business Summit in Los Angeles, California. First off will be The Last Remnant, a timed exclusive for the Xbox 360. It is expected to be […]

Yatzee reviews Super Mario Bros Brawl

Smash Bros is probably the only famous Nintendo video-game franchise I’ve never had the pleasure of owning. I’ve played it a couple of times before, the action is “crazy” and it takes little more than random button mashing to achieve good, or decent, results. In that aspect Smash Bros is no different from most other […]

A review of 'The Big Bang Theory'

  There are a few shows debuting this season that seem to be targeted to the geek crowd.  One such program is the CBS comedy The Big Bang Theory.  I took a look at the pilot episode (which is available as a free download on iTunes now), and reviewed it over on our sister site […]

Mac vs. Windows – It's All About The "Maximize" Button

Chris argues over at restiffbard.com that the fundamental difference between Windows and Mac users lies not so much in the user interface in general, but only certain specific characteristics of the UI. In particular, it’s all about the “maximize” button and how it affects the user’s workflow. In Windows, the big rectangular box would maximize […]

GoDaddy Sucks

Reddit this article Digg this article I’d like to write the first entry in what may turn into a series, however I haven’t decided yet. My first victim is going to be GoDaddy. I’ve never liked GoDaddy. They suck…..hard. Anybody who uses them knows that there administration system is crappy, and the signup process for […]

Powerpuff Girls Z: Episode #1 Review

The first episode of Damashitaa! Powerpuff Girls Z (“Take off! Powerpuff Girls Z”) premiered in Japan a few weeks ago and it didn’t take long for the thing to hit the internet for the whole world to see. So far, the only version available is the Raw Japanese version (no fansubs, yet), but luckily, I’m […]
