Sep

This week, join Matt, Ryan, and Sean as they discuss such riveting topics as Hearthstone (yes, again), Distance (it's a racing game - check it out!), Hatoful Boyfriend (it's a pigeon dating sim - don't check it out!), and Dungeons and Dragons (the real-life kind, not a video game kind). Also, some other stuff, probably?

The Pull List: Hawkeye Vs. Deadpool Is Way Better Than It Has Any Right to Be

Sep
04

Welcome to The Pull List, a weekly column where I check out the first issue of a new comic and tell you whether or not you should start following that comic based only on that. I'm not going to lie, I had an entirely different comic lined up for today's Pull List, but Hawkeye Vs. Deadpool happened to catch my eye (no pun intended) and I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised.

Holding Hands With Knife Fighters; Co-Existing In The Gamer Tag

Sep
03

Gamer is quickly becoming a poisonous term. The level of discourse surrounding gamers is positively toxic. Misogynistic attacks on women and their supporters in the industry have come in such a density and intensity that the entire community looks like a pit full of oozes and slimes belching and vomiting all over each other. As games move into the mainstream, and come under types of scrutiny that they’ve rarely been subjected to before, the hardcore who feel that games belong to them exclusively have been noisier and noisier. The gamer used to be able to look around at other people playing games and recognize himself. He was safe and secure and the ooze was warm.

Sep

Destiny just might be the most-hyped game this year, and for good reason. It's Bungie's first game since leaving the Halo franchise, and by some reports, it's cost the studio as much as half a billion dollars to develop. That's a whole lot of expectations riding on the shoulders of that team, and only makes the last week of waiting even harder to sit through.

Hawkeye's Cut 'Winter Soldier' Scene Was Better Than A Billion Bourne Flicks

Sep
02

As great as The Winter Soldier, it could've been even better: director Joe Russo details the action-packed Hawkeye scenes that unfortunately never made the final cut into the film, but involved a conflicted Hawkeye as S.H.I.E.L.D assigns him to hunt down everyone's favorite shield-toting patriot.

T-Shirt Tuesday: You Got Your Guardians in My Star Wars

Sep
02

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy was basically Star Wars, if Han Solo was the star instead of that Luke Skywalker guy. But why not combine the two on an awesome t-shirt, recasting the members of the Rebel Alliance with the Guardians (Rocket as Yoda was a brilliant choice). It's even got a bit of a Pendleton Ward-inspired aesthetic, if you're into that sort of thing (and you should be).

Sep

It goes down pretty much as you'd think: an ESL professor recently wrote a blog post detailing his stint washing dishes at Whole Foods, where everyone was a name-dropping hipster with a trust fund. Well, everyone except one large, quiet guy with a crush on the juice bar girl, and dreams of going to California to make cartoons, and his name was none other than Pen Ward, creator of Adventure Time.
