Thanks for stopping by!
Half-Life 2 has been modded for compatibility with the Oculus Rift VR headset, and it's been modded for compatibility with the Razer Hydra motion controller, but like chocolate and peanut butter, no one realized how great these two things might be together until now. This, folks, might legitimately be the future of gaming right here.
I'm not going to lie, I loved The Guardians of the Galaxy, but of course, I figured I would. Of the last five movies to come out of Marvel Studios, I've thoroughly enjoyed all of them. Still, Guardians was easily my favorite film of the summer, if not of the year (so far). I recently got a chance to go see it again, though, and I have to say that I think it may have been even better the second time.
Sometimes it's like Patrick Stewart spent his entire life wrestling in the arena of class and dignity, in which the only competitor is, after all, himself. We get it, Mr. Stewart: your demeanor is unassailable. Now watch him take the ice bucket challenge in the most Captain Picard way possible.

The attempt brought him a warning message that the site was illegal or unethical and further outlined the policy he was about to violate.
Episode VII is full of exciting possibilities for Star Wars fans, but the decisions that Lucasfilm has made leading up to it have left some worried. In order to give the story a "fresh start" so to speak, Lucasfilm will be dropping all of the Expanded Universe material (everything outside of the movies and the Clone Wars TV series).
I'm not even sure how you would apply the phrase 'cross-over' today without sounding redundant or outdated, so let's just say that a meeting between the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy may be somewhere on the horizon--but thankfully, it will be on director James Gunn's refreshingly reasonable terms.
If you're a Stargate fan, it doesn't get much cheaper than this. Amazon's Gold Box deal today is the complete run of Stargate Atlantis for $45 on Blu-ray and $30 on DVD. That is by far the cheapest it's ever been on Amazon (and probably as cheap as it's going to get). This deal will last until tomorrow, or until supplies run out, whichever comes first.
