Dragon Age 2 Game Review

By Corey Schroeder

Depending on how quickly the fervor dies down, Dragon Age II may go down in history as one of the most polarizing videogames ever released. It's been the victim of trolling, it's had devs outed for making overly positive reviews, it's inspired pages upon pages of forum posts, which got so bad that on Bioware's own site, they opened a whole new forum locked for everyone, except people who have registered their copy of the game. All for a game that, at the end of the day, is competent, fun, exciting, and flawed. It's really not worth all the hubbub.

Winter Is Coming

Don't ask when he'll be done because if you do George RR Martin will kill a Stark.

The following video's awesomeness competes with its strangeness.  Awsome wins by a nose.

Wonder Woman Pic

While on the one hand, the latex harkens back to Wonder Woman's BDSM roots (seriously), on the other hand, it seems a little obvious and uninspired.  I'm a little more than a little concerned about this series.

Dragon Age 2 Demo Review

By Corey Shroeder

I just played the DA2 demo again and I have so much to say, so I figured I'd organize it into a somewhat organized list:

 First and foremost: The new darkspawn look is awesome. We learn in the last game that darkspawn are created by corrupting humans, elves, dwarves and Qu'nari into hideous monsters. But the darkspawn in DA:O look almost exactly like orks from any other fantasy series, specifically the Lord of the Rings movies. They're vaguely reptilian-humanoid monsters who tend to hunch over and use scavenged, corroded equipment. In this, they appear to be twisted, corrupt, insane versions of the creatures that they were originally created from, and I think that takes great steps to differentiate this from other fantasy games/books/movies.

Tron Uprising

By Christian Nicholson

I'll have you know, I really liked Tr2n.  I loved almost everything about it.  I don't know how much of the spirit of the movies will be in the animated series goes, but it looks promising.
