Comic Review: ‘Sex Criminals’
Man, that title could’ve meant anything.
Are they criminals who have sex while performing illegal acts? Maybe they make a point of performing illegal sex acts, or use sex as part of their intricately planned heist.
Actually they have special powers that only work after having an orgasm. Obvious, I guess. The story focuses on Suzie, and is told through a fourth wall breaking narrative. Suzie in…

Cheap Game Tuesday: ‘The Bridge’
Like the indie smash hits FEZ and Braid, and recent iPad bestseller Monument Value, this little title works with the concepts of perception and manipulation of the physical level to avoid obstacles and guide the character to the doorway that will take them to the next level.
Based heavily on the works of M.C. Escher – to the point that the loading icon is one of his sketches – each level…

Movie Review: ‘Into the Storm’
Director: Steven Quale
Cast: Richard Armitage, Sarah Wayne Callies, Matt Walsh
Plot: A group of tornado chasers, a couple of redneck thrillseekers and a separated family get caught up in a really big storm.
