What Happened to Marvel's Most Wanted?


After the initial success of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter, the comics giant decided to move forward with a spin-off series based on two of their newer characters. A pilot was produced, but the show never materialized. When the characters all but vanished from the universe, fans began to wonder: What happened to Marvel’s Most Wanted?

What the Hell is World Trigger?


This week sees the premiere of the second season of World Trigger's anime adaptation. When this was announced at the end of 2019, a lot of people heard the news and all asked one question: what the hell is World Trigger? Since I always seem to find myself drawn to the niche and unknown, I am here to answer that question.

REVIEW: Golf Story


I don't like sports. At all. And I, obviously, don't like most sports games. That being said, one of my favorite games on the Gameboy Color was Mario Tennis due to the fact that it was a boarding school RPG about a less common sport (and barely about Mario) that made the sport fun in a different way. All these years later, Sidebar Games recaptures that magic with another boring sport.

Comcast Sent Me This Box. It Sucks. Here's Why You Should Get One Too


Remember how last year I left Pittsburgh and moved to Iowa and then 6 months later I moved back to Pittsburgh? Well because this year wasn’t bad enough we had to move again. But it’s all okay! Our new place is 100% better then where we spent 2020 and it’s just down the block. Not only that, when we transferred our internet service, Comcast asked me if I wanted this… thing.

My Favorite Comics of 2020


This year was... bad. The comics industry shut down for a good while and when it finally started up again I just wasn't feeling most comics. Sure, I read older stuff for the first time ever like Invincible or Claymore. I read a handful of new releases, but I don't even remember most of them - somehow my Hoopla history got deleted. It was a weird year, so this list is going to be weird as well.

REVIEW: Monster Sanctuary

Monster Sanctuary  is one of those games I’ve been following since before this blog even existed. Players collect, train, and battle different monsters - a subgenre I believe there can never be enough of - while also adding a unique spin by setting the adventure inside of an interconnected Metroidvania world. The game is available now from Moi Rai Games.
