    Review: The Evil Within

    Okay, I think I can start breathing again. I’ve survived the gore-soaked head trip that is Shinji Mikami’s The Evil Within, the newest successor to survival horror’s bloody, barbed-wire crown. I’ve limped down countless scummy blood-soaked hallways, had my brains bashed in by a giant […]

    Review: Skullduggery!

    We’ve been told that the only certainties in life are death and taxes, which perhaps helps explain why, in the bizarre and fun iOS app Skullduggery!, you’re cast as an angry skull with a slingshot-elastic brain whose job it is to seize assets and collect […]

    Review: South Park Pinball

    Any time Zen Studios announces a new pinball table, I find myself giddy with anticipation. Usually Zen teases a table months in advance. This time around, when the South Park tables were announced on the first of the month, there was almost no time for […]

    Discussion Review: Sacred 3

    Review written by Matt Litten & Tim Mack. Tim: Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MS3TK) had a fantastic run making fun of cheesy, low production movies. The campier, the better. Being able to comment on some of the worst moments in cinema and make two hours […]

  • Movie Review: Heavenly Sword

    Movie Review: Heavenly Sword

    Of all the games in Sony’s impressive stable of exclusives, Heavenly Sword makes complete sense as one of the first to be adapted into a full-length animated film.
