Review: The Purge: Election Year

With the current political climate of Democrats and Republicans at each other’s throats and mass-shootings happening so often people barely seem shocked anymore, it should come as no surprise that a third Purge movie comes during an election year. Especially this election year, which feels like a precursor to an actual Purge. So give it up for the “life imitates art, art imitates life” scenario with The Purge: Election Year.

Binary System Podcast #42 – The answer to…wait, what was the question?

No recap this week because…well, because excuses, but Night Vale is on hiatus and Time Warner’s dropping half of North Carolina into an internet black hole and California is still (last time we checked) three hours behind the East Coast, so scheduling and technical difficulties and are you still reading this? We love you. Have 15 minutes of random ramblings.

Lost in Sci-Fi: Episode 23: Blade Runner

This week the team talks about AI that becomes self-aware, especially in the Blade Runner film. We talk about they hows and why within the film and how Ridley Scott visuals are still so amazing.

Video Review : Dark Souls 3

Dark Souls 3 is the unforgiving final chapter in the acclaimed Souls series. Designed for new comers and veterans alike, Dark Souls 3 combines the fast paced action of Bloodborne with the plotting, methodical game play that Dark Souls is known for.

After only playing Bloodborne, the sister series of the Souls games, I more or less went into the game entirely blind. And even though I had my teeth knocked out of me repeatedly, I’d have to say Dark Souls 3 is one of the best games I’ve played this year. Hit the jump and check out the video review! Read On

Review: Doctor Strange – The Way of the Weird

Elizabeth over at Binary System Podcast has been trying to get me to read the latest Doctor Strange series almost since it first came out last October. I finally ran out of excuses when I stumbled over the gorgeous hardback graphic novel Doctor Strange – The Way of the Weird, collecting the first five issues of the series written by Jason Aaron (Star Wars, The Mighty Thor, Avengers vs. X-Men), with art by Chris Bachalo (Uncanny X-Men, plus a couple dozen other X-titles).

Don’t worry if you’re unfamiliar with the character; Aaron gives you a quick history of the surgeon-turned-Sorcerer-Surpreme on the first page, and then throws you into a gloriously insane world of magic and monsters that’s hidden from most “normal” humans.

Ever since starting his new life as a sorcerer, Doctor Strange has been operating as something of a supernatural troubleshooter, driving out magical infestations from his home in Manhattan. But there are rumors that there’s something out there worse than alien parasites or demonic nightmares. And whatever it is, it’s getting closer, right when Strange is starting to realize that the price of using magic may be a lot higher than he can pay.

Binary System Podcast #41 – WTNV #90 “Who’s A Good Boy, Part 2″

The chaos in Night Vale comes to a crashing finale as the whole town joins in the battle. In the end, what happened? We can’t tell you. Seriously. We have no idea. Lots of opinions though.

After the recap we were all over the place, from Buffy the Vampire Slayer to Civil War II, Saga, Cowboy Bebop, Lucifer, the Fall, and any other distraction we could fit in a half hour.
