Ten Reasons (Some Believe) Paul McCartney is Dead: Part I

Aug
17

It's a simple fact of life: everyone knows a Beatles fan. However, most people are not lucky enough to know someone who believes that the real Paul McCartney is actually dead. Luckily for you, you know me, and I believe all sorts of crazy shit. Like Bigfoot. He's real. And The Loch Ness Monster. He's really real. And aliens are real, and we never went to the moon and Abraham Lincoln killed JFK. Yep, I'm that guy.

The Expendables 3 Micro-Review: Not Great, But Still Good

Aug
16

The Expendables series has managed to carve out a niche for itself amongst action-enthusiasts for its non-stop parade of action movie icons, B-movie badasses, and about as many cameos as one can possibly shove into an hour-and-a-half. None of the films so far have been particularly... graceful in their execution, but there's always been plenty of solid action featuring some of the biggest names in the genre to make up for it. Does the third film live up to that, or is the gimmick finally wearing thin?

Aug

We're in a bit of a platformer renaissance right now. Well, maybe renaissance isn't the right word. Under an avalanche of pixel art and chiptune music, we're getting plenty of new games, so many that they're all starting to blend together. That's why it's a breath of fresh air when a game, especially a platformer, can catch your eye with just a glance.

These Are the Most Pirated Games in Each State

Aug

Whether piracy causes real economic damage is still up for debate. What isn't though is the fact that quite a few Americans pirate stuff. In the past 40 days, over a million people have torrented or pirated something: movies, TV shows, music, and even games. In an effort to understand how geographic areas affect downloading habits, a real estate blog tracked which games were the most in each state. Spoiler, it's probably Watch_Dogs; unless you live in Oklahome. Those guys really love Naruto.

When the script for Quentin Tarantino's next film, a western titled The Hateful Eight, leaked onto the internet, the director decided it wasn't worth filming anymore. Last month however, he apparently changed his mind, and the project is heading into production early next year, with a 2015 release date in mind.
