I personally don’t have a lot of experience with the Call of Duty franchise. I rarely bought First Person Shooters when I was younger, but the ones I had were really fun. I have also been hearing a split between a lot of my friends on their opinion on the newest installment, Call of Duty: WWII. After a while,...
Up until Bloodborne's release I had yet to play a game that was as polished and unique in regards to gameplay on the current gen consoles. Bloodborne by FromSoftware is relentless and unfair at times but likewise incredibly rewarding. I previously wrote a Preview article for the game back in February (before it came out) which was based on information provided by gameplay...
The solo project of producer/rapper/actor/writer Donald Glover (AKA Childish Gambino) has flexed his creative muscles after his sophomore album of late last year. Taking time off from writing for NBC shows like Community and 30 Rock, Glover found time to make a brand of alternative hip-hop, a style of rap that has recently emerged and can be seen with artists like A$AP Rocky, Chance The Rapper,...
What is the definition of Emo? Is it the musical embodiment of Hot Topic stores? Is it, perhaps, an onomatopoeia, because the word "emo" sounds like a whine? Is it a word that MTV just made up? Is it a word that people just made up? Is it even a thing? Honestly, I have no idea. I just know that...
In spite of the hefty amount of pressure intrinsically involved in the concluding of an international phenomenon so vast in its appeal and so iconic in its cultural stature as J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, the saga’s final installment, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, released this summer on July 15, 2011, had to be good. It was,...
OBLIGATORY SPOILER ALERT: If you have not seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens, do not proceed as it contains multiple spoilers. It's the epic saga adored by young and old alike, and this newest installment certainly has created a new generation of Star Wars fans. Episode 7 featured new and old faces for new and old fans, but how did some...
The film Bohemian Rhapsody tells the life story of English rock band, Queen. Led by singer Freddie Mercury, the band was a hit-maker in the 70s and 80s rock scene, and continues to be a favorite band for many, young and old. With 23 million views on the movie's official trailer, this movie was promoted as the definitive Queen...
I have to say I had low hopes for Insomniac Games' newest title, Sunset Overdrive. Insomniac Games has a track record of making either really good or really bad games, among the better titles include Ratchet & Clank & The Resistance series. On the poor side of their past games are titles such as Fuse, which was an all around failure when it came to...
