  • A Dapper Dinosaur

    I decided that, since Igor lives at the office now (to stare down a coworker’s superhero action figure collection), he should have a costume for halloween. I was going for Steampunk but didn’t really have anything to give it the edge needed, so we’ll settle for Dapper Victorian.

  • Half-Life (PC – Steam)

    Half-Life Platform: PC-Steam Ratings: Story: 4/5 (I couldn’t hear a lot of what the scientists were telling me, making me miss a lot of plot.)

  • Megamind

    Megamind I wasn’t expecting to like this movie as much as I did. Pogle and I have already watched it two times, and I wouldn’t be surprised if we watch it again soon.

  • Star Trek

    Star Trek I put off watching the newest reboot because I was afraid it couldn’t live up to its namesakes. I was wrong, and should have watched this film a year ago. I found some parts very distressful, but pogle talked me into giving it a chance. It was very strange for me to find…

  • Heavy Rain (PS3)

    Heavy Rain [SPOILER ALERT] PS3 Story Rating: 3.5/5 – Essentially a giant “Choose your own adventure” story: every decision you make determines the path your plot will take. Environment Rating: 5/5 – One of the most realistic environments you’ll find yourself in (although there’s naturally a bit of uncanny valley going on) Game Play Rating:…

  • Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4 (Nintendo DS)

    Lego Harry Potter Nintendo DS Story Rating: 3/5 – Seems disjointed at times, unplayable really if you haven’t read books or seen movies. Environment Rating: 4/5 – The Potterverse has been translated into lego very well. Game Play Rating: Fun, but I really don’t want to replay it to get all of the hidden items…
