The Walking Dead: "Go Getters" Review

The Walking Dead: "Go Getters" Review

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below. I just want to bring up the fact here that, so far, only three people have died this season. Yes, two of those deaths were pretty big, but compared to last year’s body count come this time, Season 7’s feels light from a carnage standpoint. That’s neither a good thing or a bad thing, really. It just stands out more now I guess since this episode, “Go Getters,” and last week’s chapter, “Service,” both featured the Saviors making house calls but leaving no one dead in their wicked wake. They make a lot of blustering speeches, and subject folks to a ton of bullying, but no one’s been Lucille’d since Glenn hit the dirt. Continue reading…

Ash vs Evil Dead: "Ashy Slashy" Review

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below. NOOOOOOO! First Brock and now Pablo! Ruby wasn’t kidding when she told our “powerful vagina” that even if everything went perfectly, he still probably wouldn’t survive. To be honest too, I had my doubts about Pablo making it out of this season alive. I wasn’t absolutely certain, but I had a tingle. His storyline, what with him being merged with the Necronomicon and all, felt like one of ultimate sacrifice. Plus, as much as Pablo was Ash’s number one cadet, Kelly, as of late, has really been stepping up as a possible Ash-ccessor. Hell, given her awesome and brutal fight with the Ashy Slashy puppet this week, she’s already kind of there, and I wouldn’t even put it past this show to kill off Ash by the end of this year.

Game Publishers and the 'Marketing Beta'

Game Publishers and the 'Marketing Beta'

“I’m going to get on my soap box,” says Dan Ayoub, studio head of strategy games at 343 Industries. “I think the term ‘beta’, it’s just lost. We should just give up; we’ve lost the word.” Ayoub is definitely onto something. At risk of showing my age, I remember a time when it was safe to expect a developer to release a demo for its latest game, either close to release or shortly after. Before the reign of pre-orders to secure a digital copy of a non-physical (and thus limitless) item, this was part of how developers would entice gamers to fork over hard-earned cash. Basically, by giving the gaming community a taste of what they’d be paying for, consumers could make informed purchasing decisions. Continue reading…

Treat Yourself With Our Holiday Gift Guide
