Comic Review: ‘Sex Criminals’

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’

Cheap Game Tuesday: ‘The Bridge’

the-bridge-banner

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.

TheBridgeScreenshot8

Based heavily on the works of M.C. Escher – to the point that the loading icon is one of his sketches – each level…

Review:Yeah, I know that plot description doesn’t tell you much, but this is an immensely shallow film. The story is so insubstantial and the characters so dull that there’s not much else to…

Table Top Review: ‘Risk: The Dalek Invasion of Earth’

Doctor Who Risk

Publisher: Parker Brothers

Style: Military Strategy

Players: 2 – 5

Length of Play: 2 – 3 hours

Review: ‘Risk’ ranks up there with ‘Monopoly’ and ‘Trivial Pursuit’ as one of the best known board games in the world, a family game that has permeated Western family culture so thoroughly that you’d be pressed to find someone who hasn’t at least heard of it.
