6 Games Where North Korea is the Bad Guy

Nov

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare launched last night, and minor spoiler, the section with the North Koreans was not a friendly tea party. For some reason, and despite the fact that no game to date has really justified how Best Korea suddenly got competent enough to take on some of the world's most sophisticated militaries, military shooters just keep insisting on using those neighbors to the north as bad guys.

Comikaze Expo 2014: First Impressions from a First-Time Attendee

Nov
03

Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo, sponsored by Hot Topic.  Now, I am no stranger to comic based conventions.  After living in California for 6 years, I have attended Wonder Con, Anime Expo, and Comic Con and thought I saw it all. And I was quickly proven wrong. While it does have what is now considered the norm for comic conventions – diverse range of cosplayers, panels that have absolutely nothing to do with comic books, big names signing autographs for a hefty price – this one did have its little (mostly positive!) quirks.

I've attended Comikaze Expo for three years now, and every time I go, I can barely recognize the convention from the previous year’s. From the layout to the booths to the programming, every year Comikaze has continued to change and evolve in huge ways. That's great news to me, because it shows that this event is willing to update itself to meet the needs of its attendees; and given how close it is to me, it's quickly becoming one of my favorite conventions to attend.

Songs They Send Us: Trippy New Stuff from Ummagma

Nov
02

People send us songs. We pass them on to you. Because we love you. Enjoy!

Sporting "delicate, airy, gossamer type vocals [that] hold glimmers of Cocteau Twins", and "cinenmatic soundscapes with elements of Pink Floyd", Canadian / Ukranian duo Ummagma are poised to release Kiev - The Remixes, an album of remixes featuring artists like Sounds of Sputnik, A Copycat, and Brazil's Mind Moves. The album revolves around the Ummagma's captivating signature song "Kiev", which is inspired by the Ukranian city that was the scene of so much violence during last year's bloody Ukranian Revolution. A mesmerizing mix of guazy, atmospheric sounds, trembling beats, and fragile vocals, "Kiev" is a near perfect song that seduces the listener in and out of consciousness. Trust me, you'll dig it.
