I might have mentioned earlier (or maybe not) that my love of Star Trek had a very reluctant and rocky start in my childhood. As a child in the 80s, there wasn’t an incredible amount of variety on television. So many a weekend afternoon aired long marathons of Star Trek, Bruce Lee movies, etc. My father, an avid Star Trek fan, wouldn’t miss a chance to sit and watch the episodes from the original show, and of course he was the one who introduced it to me. I admit I wasn’t very receptive at first, but in time it grew on me, and I found myself addicted. I’ve watched all remakes of it including Enterprise (and… Continue reading
Imagine you’re immersed in your favorite game. You’re stranded on a beach, trying to collect items to use for your survival. The graphics are excellent; you can see the sun’s rays glinting off of the water, the light radiating off the sand. But that’s not all. As you roam the beach, you can actually SMELL the scent of salt water in the air, the stench of rotting seaweed, a warm breeze blowing on your face, the feel of the ocean spray on your skin. Talk about adding a new dimension to gaming!
It might sound too good to be true, but it’s very, very real. Manufactured by FeelReal, this virtual reality mask brings the gaming… Continue reading
I wanted to love “Once Upon a Time.” I think I did at one time. With such a large cast, there are characters we’re going to love and ones we’re going to hate. It’s inevitable. And while I did favor the villains (Regina, Mr. Gold, etc), I always had a soft spot for the “good guys.” That is, until this current season, when I came to a realization about this show: it’s really all about Emma.
And the worst part is, she knows it. I mean, most shows do gravitate around a particular character and the difficulties they encounter, the struggles they’ve endured. But a kind of “reset button” is pushed from week to week that sort of grounds said character… Continue reading
Any dedicated fan of the show has no doubt witnessed what our favorite group of survivors has had to endure throughout their time in the apocalypse. Life as they once knew it is gone, and the constant search for food, water and supplies (along with the brutality of their environment) takes its daily toll.
And as the story continues, we can see how the characters change – some for the better, and some for the worse. But perhaps the most dramatic and controversial change can be seen in the inhabitants of Terminus.
[Spoiler Alert – if you’re not up to speed on TWD, stop reading here!]
So what do we know about Terminus? We know that it was… Continue reading
And I’m thirlled! It’s been such a terribly long hiatus – I never meant to be away this long. So much has happened since the last time I posted in 2012. Nevertheless, the site is up and running again, and that’s all that matters.
What’s awesome is that the shows that I love to watch have really changed so much, and there’s so much more to talk about now. So there will be some commentary regarding those, maybe a few reviews on some new (or not so new games), a movie here or there, and the occasional opinionated article by yours truly from time to time. Oh, and walkers (zombies). We’re definitely going to be talking about those.
I’m dealing with… Continue reading
