“Infamous: Second Son” Review: Next-Gen Graphics, Old-Gen Gameplay

On March 21st, Sony CE and Sucker Punch Productions released Infamous: Second Son, the first PlayStation 4 exclusive. Having only AC: Black Flag and free downloadable indie games like Don’t Starve to keep my attention, I have to admit, I was eager to finally play something specifically made for the PS4. I was hoping to, at least, get a hint at what new and interesting game play doors could be opened by a next-gen system. This, however, was not the case. read more

5 Reasons You Should Be Psyched About “Dredd 2”

Who is Judge Dredd?

The year 2012 saw the beginnings of a resurgence in science fiction film reboots and remakes.  We’re caught in the trend now and there’s no end in sight (kudos to whoever can guess how soon we get another Total Recall remake). It’s a good thing in some respects, though, as films that didn’t pan out the first time around are getting a second chance.

Take Judge Dredd, a 1995 Stallone vehicle that left the franchise untouchable (in a bad way) for two decades. It had the look, but it didn’t come close to nailing the nuances and that’s why this sci-fi blunder exists. Lucky for us, Judge Dredd would get another chance. But, before we get there, let’s take a quick step back and explain where Dredd really began.

Coolest Cat on Earth, Samuel L. Jackson Recites Boy Meets World-Inspired Slam Poetry

The impact of late night television used to be in its so-called “watercooler moments,” a funny bit or a dynamo performance that left people talking about it the next day at work. But the sands have shifted. This is the dawning of the Age of the Viral Video and late night has become its biggest producer. It’s a stunning shift in conventional thinking and possibly the first and only example on television where a network has actually embraced the changing way people consume TV, rather than to desperately fight against it. The new thinking is this: Sure, people may not watch The Tonight Show or The Late Show when it airs, but they sure as hell will click on a video of what happened the next morning when its all over the internet. Nobody wants to feel like they are being left out. read more

5 Ways ‘Batman Beyond’ Predicted the Future

What is Batman Beyond?

Batman Beyond was a Warner Bros./DC Animated television show that aired from 1999 to 2001. It was a futuristic, cyberpunk reimagining of the Batman legend. The story takes place 40 years in the future in Neo-Gotham, a dystopian, neon lit, post-industrial cityscape. Gotham is worse than ever before. There’s a general feeling of malaise hanging over much of Neo-Gotham’s citizens, and the rest are criminals and hooligans who represent a breakdown in the social order. The story follows Terry McGinnis, a Hamilton Hill High student who, with the help of an elderly but badass Bruce Wayne, carries on the Batman legacy.

True Detective Episode 7 “After You’ve Gone” Recap and Analysis

This week’s installment finished the six episode set up, for what is sure to be an emotionally-intense season finale. All of the interviews have concluded, the narrative is officially in the present, and fans are on the edge of their seats eager to see how the show will end.

Episode 7 begins with Marty and Cohle sitting in a bar. Marty asks “why am I here?” forcing Rust to get to the point. Cohle opens with the Lake Charles murder, and how it had been kept from the papers saying “If they’d cover that up, who knows what else they might have covered up,” justifying the need to keep his investigation under wraps. Marty is unconvinced it’s worth getting back into and as he begins to leave Cohle says “You have a debt, because of the way things went down in ’95.” This is a reference to Marty’s impromptu execution of Ledoux. Though Marty seems reluctant to even entertain the thought that Rust isn’t crazy, he is convinced to at least see what Cohle has in his storage shed. read more
