Review: Rogue One

Last year when The Force Awakens came out Star Wars fans felt like they had been given a gift from the nerd gods and also an apology for the prequels. Hate it or love it, The Force Awakens brought back Star Wars in a big way. Giving us a new, yet familiar story, for all generations to enjoy. If Force Awakens was the movie you waited for to remind you of the joy you can have in the Star Wars universe, then Rogue One is the movie you have been waiting 30 years for. Because it’s one of the best Star Wars films made, ranking right next to Empire.

Return to Arkham – How well does it age?

Return to Arkham – How well does it age?

I purchased the Xbox One with the dream that the Batman Arkham series would be backwards compatible; getting a remastered version of both Arkham Asylum and Arkham City was taking that dream and adding frosting, with bacon. Safe to say I was more than a little excited to revisit the series – though there was a nagging doubt that perhaps the game didn’t age well. Well, I put on my utility belt and grapple hooked my way into Arkham. I was more than surprised what I found.

Top 3 games of PSX 2016

As is customary for the PlayStation Experience, indie titles were out in full force on the show floor. Although I didn’t get a chance to check them all out, I’m going to take this opportunity to shout out the titles that really stood out to me. To be honest, it’s not that hard to catch my attention: does the game have an interesting mechanic attached to its gameplay? Does it have an awesome soundtrack? Is it a MetroidVania style game? If the answer is yes to any of these, chances are it caught my eye. So, without further ad0, here are my top three games of PSX 2016! Hit the jump to read on!

Binary System Podcast’s Very Geeky Christmas

“All right, everybody, what do we all want to find under the Christmas tree?”

“MONEY!”

“Okay, yes, that would be nice, but what ELSE do we want?”

“GIFT CERTIFICATES!”

“Well that kind of falls into the money category, come on, there’s something else…”

“BOOZE?”

“Oh for crying out loud…GEEKY CHRISTMAS PRESENTS.”

In the spirit of a very sci-fi/fantasy/horror Christmas, here’s the BSP team’s recommendations for the perfect presents for the fangirl/fanguy in your life.

Review – DC Rebirth Holiday Special

If you need a break from all the gloom and bad feelings going around lately, the Rebirth Holiday Special is the way to do it. I liked some of the stories more than others, but I enjoyed all of them, and while some of them tended to beat you over the head with tidings of comfort and joy, they mostly did it with nudges and winks.

The Highs and Lows of the PSX 2016 Keynote

The Highs and Lows of the PSX 2016 Keynote

The PlayStation Experience has come and gone for another year, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t bring some good and some not so good stuff with it. As with last year’s keynote, PlayStation came in swinging and left the room full of PlayStation fans impressed for the most part. Granted there were a few moments where it seemed Sony might be dropping the ball, but they quickly made up for it by doing what Sony does best: cater to their audience. And with that, let’s take a look at what the internet thought was the greatest thing of all time, and what was the worst thing to ever happen ever. Hyperbole is fun! Hit the jump to read on or watch the showcase yourself below!

Review: Star Wars Aftermath – Life Debt

Review: Star Wars Aftermath – Life Debt

The journey to The Force Awakens continues in the second book of Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath trilogy.

The scrappy band of misfits, bounty hunters, and former soldiers introduced in the first book has been successfully (for the most part) tracking down high-ranking Imperial officers and dragging them back to the New Republic.

Far from being wiped out, the remnants of the Empire are stubbornly holding on to the planets they control and gathering their forces for another attack against the New Republic. But while some Imperial officers truly believe that having the Empire in charge would be better for the galaxy (certainly better than the chaos that’s going to result from the New Republic’s idealistic half-measures), others are working behind the scenes to return to the days of secret police, puppet governments, and an Emperor like Palpatine. Only much worse.

Review and Preview – Transformers: Lost Light #1

Review and Preview – Transformers: Lost Light #1

It’s finally here, the series that picks up where More Than Meets the Eye left off. Lost Light hits shelves tomorrow, but does it live up to the legacy MTMTE left behind? Better question: is the story as goofy and badass and complex with all the feels? Does it have the same jaw-droppingly gorgeous art?

(Yeah, I’ve set the bar kind of high. What can I say, I’m a fan.)

See below for preview pages and a spoiler-free review of Transformers: Lost Light #1.
