Is ‘50 Shades of Grey’ More Than a ‘Twilight’ Rip-Off?

Is ’50 Shades of Grey’ More Than a ‘Twilight’ Rip-Off?

This may come as no surprise to you savvy internet types, but Twilight is directly responsible for the printed bile that is 50 Shades of Grey. But when this is brought up with the 50 Shades target demographic they may remain sceptical. I’ve had personal experience with this, mentioning it in the office to some avid fans only to be informed that “it has nothing to do with Twilight!”. The reason…

The first part of the Destiny Beta was a superb, exquisitely fun affair that I could not stop playing. I hooked around twenty hours over the four days prior to the shutdown and was still so hooked I had minor withdrawals on that first day the game was unavailable. Thankfully I had work to keep me occupied (the sarcasm there is palpable) but then rejoice! Bungie announced they had…

10 Franchises We Want Telltale to Make into a Game

Telltale_Games_logo_svg

Telltale are the gold star recipients in the modern point and click adventure genre. A genre that produced blockbuster titles in the 90s and now only fills a small niche, Telltale kept the Monkey Island and Sam and Max flame alive. Their games based on Jurassic Park and Back to the Future were plenty of fun, but it was The Walking Dead that put them on the map. The Wolf Among Us and The Walking…

Must read comics of the week

Archie

Afterlife with Archie #6

It is official. Riverdale is the center of a new zombie apocalypse, and it is Sabrina the Teenage Witch’s fault. For messing with the Necronomicon, she is banished to purgatory. A perfect jumping on point for those who haven’t signed up for the end of Riverdale.

Batman

Batman #33

This extra-sized issue marks the end of Snyder’s Year Zero. Batman…

Destiny-Beta

By Hedge

A few weeks ago, I took you through my experiences with the Destiny Alpha, a fun and frolicking weekend event for the Playstation 4. This past week, as you’ve probably heard, was the Beta; beginning on the 17th for Playstation users and the 23rd for those on Xbox. So what changed between Alpha and Beta? Not a great deal; but there was certainly more to be seen. The following is my…

Marvel-Guardians-of-the-Galaxy

How pumped are we for the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie? It doesn’t feel like that long ago that nobody knew what this movie was, but the bombastic marketing campaign have turned them into a household name. The movies line up…Star Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot…are only small portion of the team that has been blasting through the universe this last decade.

Tribute: James Garner

Brett_Maverick_-_James_Garner

We have received news that James Garner has died of natural causes. Given that the peak of his career was during the 1960s and 70s and our readership mostly having been born after this time, you might not know the name right off the bat. But you know him. He was in The Notebook. He was the older Ryan Gosling (by the way, major spoilers in the last sentence). Or you might know him as the evil…
