Remembering Dead Space – Gameumentary

Until here recently, I had never played through any of the Dead Space games. Almost immediately after finishing Dead Space 2, the news comes out that Visceral Games had been closed down.

Box Art Documentary Sheds Light on Lost Art

In the glory days, before the back box art was crammed with small text in every known language, used probably to avoid some sort of legal issue, there was artwork on the cover of the box, the instruction manuals, and the game itself. To be frank, its all but a ...[Read More]

I’m Still Here – Movie Poster Released

Well over a year ago, Joaquin Phoenix seemed to fall off the diving board of sanity, landing a superb belly flop into the swimming pool of ridiculous celebrity behavior.  2009 saw Joaquin entertain us to an extent unimaginable by even General Maximus Decimus Meridius.  With Casey Affleck (younger brother of the manager of Fashionable Male at the mall) filming every minute of his delirium for a ...[Read More]
