Top 5 TV Comedies to Binge Watch When Times are Tough
22 May 2015 8:05 PM, PDT
Life gets hard, that is just a fact (unless you’re a cat, then you pretty much sleep 14 hours a day while getting pets and life is good.) Regardless, we all have those times when you are having a bad day, week, month, or even year. If you are like me, sometimes you need a distraction that will take your mind off those pesky feelings for a little while and remind you that is okay and even possible to laugh.
These are the best shows to watch when you are feeling down and out! As someone who is utilizing this very method right now, I can verify every one of these shows is working to get me through my hard times.
There are a lot of things that make this show great. It is witty, hilarious, clever, and all together one of the most entertaining shows in existence. Tina Fey »

3 Games I’d Go Back In Time to Experience All Over Again
19 May 2015 6:28 PM, PDT
The first BioShock is one of, if not the best game I’ve ever played. It is terrifying, engaging, and Gorgeous all while presenting one of the greatest stories of gaming history. I would give anything to go back and experience the twists and turns of Rapture all over again.
I remember sitting through my first play through legitimately too uncomfortable to play at night or at least when it was dark because the growls of the splicers made my stomach do flips. The near constant snarls in the distance kept you on edge throughout every inch of Rapture. It was the epitome of chilling.
Even more, I would love to experience the intense revelation of who is Atlas. You spend half the game being ferried from one location to the next with someone you trust talking in your ear, telling you what to do. Then before you know it, »

Jorah Mormont as a Champion – Unbowed. Unbent. Unbroken? | Game of Thrones
19 May 2015 1:50 PM, PDT
A lot things happened in last week’s episode that people want to talk about a lot more – and oddly I think that particular one was one of the better shot, edited, and acted scenes in a episode that was otherwise kind of a disaster – but I wanted to go into some other directions, namely that of a line by Tyrion regarding Jorah Mormont. I think for TV watchers it would be easy to forget that Jorah is the son of Jeor, and the Valyrian sword Jon Snow wields, Long Claw, was Jorah’s sword that he left behind before he went into exile. Also, if you recall, a couple episodes back Stannis was telling Davos about how a ten year old Northern Lord sent back a letter in response to him desiring their allegiance, and basically telling him they only recognize one King in the North (a Stark) – that little girl, »

Bloodshot Reborn #2 / Ninjak #3 – Valiant Review, Lemire & Kindt Two Piece
18 May 2015 5:58 PM, PDT
I usually review the weekly Valiant releases separately but I think it’s understandable that after the first issues or arcs that a lot of needless repetition can and often will occur in terms of opinion on theme or backdrop. It’s why I personally have always found issue by issue reviews at even places like Newsarama and Cbr to be largely useless, usually not offering anything that a publisher’s synopsis doesn’t already cover. It becomes a grind. After the first issues we kind of get it unless we are talking about event comics, and I don’t mean just company wide crossovers but also works that are introducing something new, either in character or big picture direction, like an Identity Crisis or even Valiant’s current Divinity miniseries, which feels like both an event and cosmic vignette at the same time. I feel for the most part »
