Thom is the foremost supporter of all things glittery and awesome. While not flashmobbing (can it still be called a flashmob if he's by himself?) innocent civilians in the grocery store while wearing a Dracula Halloween costume that's obviously too small for him, Thom is planning his next flashmob.

Far Cry 5, The Crew 2, and a new Assassin’s Creed coming to E3 2017!

Ubisoft has officially announced two new sequels to their upcoming slate of games for 2017, Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2. Yeah, that last one is a little awkward rolling off the tongue. The Crew 2. The Crew 2. Just feels weird, you know?

Mass Effect in Retrospect

Full disclosure, I am going to spoil the crap out of the entire Mass Effect franchise to date. If you’re not cool with that, I can totally understand that. Here’s the TL;DR though, I love Mass Effect like some people love Shakespeare. It’s probably the most important piece of art that I have ever experienced.

It Is Dangerous to Stream Alone

Hi Everyone, Thom here with a bit of a PSA. This year on December 28th, TakeThis.Org is hosting a charity drive called It Is Dangerous To Stream Alone. I sat down with Russ Pitts, co-founder of Take This, to talk about the charity, the event, and a bunch of other stuff. I hope you enjoy the chat and I’ll post a link to the event page below the interview. I hope to see you all on the 28th 🙂 I...[Read More]

Transformers: Devastation Review

I’m going to make this real simple for everyone, if you grew up on the original Transformers from the 80’s then you need to play this game. It’s that simple. That’s not to say that there isn’t a lot to love for everyone else, because there is. The game is fun, colorful, and well written(in that 80’s throwback kind of way) and just plain enjoyable. It’s a b...[Read More]

Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes Hands-On Preview

I’m wearing my Oculus Rift and some studio headphones. The only input I’m getting from the outside world are the voices of Chris and Andrew as I stare at the rapidly diminishing timer of a bomb. “OK, the last module is a ‘Simon’ board,” I tell them, “the blue light is flashing.” “Press the green button,” Chris replies, his voice full of c...[Read More]

COD: Black Ops III Leaves out Campaign for Last Gen Consoles

Still rocking an Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3? Really enjoy the campaigns in the Call of Duty Franchise? Bad news, I’m afraid, the campaign mode won’t be featured on the last generation console versions of the game. Citing an inability to “faithfully recreate” the co-op aspect of the campaign on the previous generation of hardware, Activision has made the decision to just lea...[Read More]

Halo 5: Guardians Install Size Revealed…

…and it’s a bit shocking. Well, not as shocking as Halo: The Master Chief collection and it’s system stuttering 62 GB install but it’s big. Finder is reporting an install of 46.19 GB. 46.19 GB of HDD space that we won’t be getting back until we decide to delete the game in the future for more space on the already cramped 500 GB drive that most Xbox Ones came with. I&#...[Read More]

New Xbox Experience Preview Rolling Out Now

As you read these words, a preview build of the new Xbox Experience will be rolling out to a subset of preview program members. The core of the new Experience, perhaps we should just call it “Xperience*,” is the completely redesigned Home Screen. The whole thing has been re-tuned around a vertical scrolling experience as opposed to the current horizontal scrolling and faster access to ...[Read More]

Destiny: The Taken King – Nolan North Ghost Reveal

This should come as no surprise to anyone that follows me on Twitter but I love Destiny. I started late into The Dark Below expansion and have been hooked ever since. As you can imagine, I was pretty excited when they announced The Taken King back in June but the news that Peter Dinklage wouldn’t be returning as the Ghost was a little bit troubling to me. Then again, they were replacing him ...[Read More]

Destiny: The Taken King E3 Impressions

If you had told me before E3 that I would be even more excited to play Destiny than I am now I would have called you crazy. I came in pretty late, in between The Dark Below and The House of Wolves, so I missed out on a lot of the early game. That said, Destiny has capture my heart. It’s not perfect, not by a long shot, but it was something new in an environment filled with different shades o...[Read More]
