p>When JJ Abrams Star Trek came out in 2009 I, like many others, really liked it. I actually saw it three times in theaters with one showing being on IMAX.

So there were high hopes for the sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness, but unfortunately the movie falls flat on its face at wa... more.

This past May, after seeing The Avengers, I could remember not being overly excited about The Amazing Spider-Man and The Dark Knight Rises. After Whedon’s epic, it was hard to imagine a comic book movie in an isolated universe living up to what the Marvel Cinematic Universe was able to accomplish by embracing what made the books so great.

id Software has finally unleashed their new FPS into gamer's hands, but is it any good? Thankfully it is, although it isn't without its share of controversy. As a life-long id fan, I couldn't possibly bring myself to play Rage on a console, so I played the PC version...and that just so happens to be the one that's causing fits of nerd rage across the internet. Rage is affected by the annoying "con... more.

Instead of writing up a detailed review of a game that's six years old, I'm just going to give you an impassioned plea to buy the Ico/Shadow of the Colossus Collection for the PS3. Released this week for a decent $40, the Ico/Shadow of the Colossus Collection is the latest in PlayStation 2 re-releases being upscaled to HD and slapped on a Blu-Ray. Sony is really doing this after removing PS2 backw... more.
