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.

REVIEW: Home Sick Pilots #1

I’ve said this before, but I don’t like horror. It doesn’t “scare” me or anything, I just don’t get the appeal. But when I heard there was a new series about punk rock kids in the 90s piloting haunted houses like Megazords, I knew this was a horror title I definitely had to check out.

Why Iron Man 2 is My Favorite Marvel Movie

The third film in what has become known as the Marvel Cinematic Universe had a lot riding on it's shoulders. It was the follow-up to Iron Man, the massive hit that started it all. It came out in 2010, after 2009 became so far the only year to lack an MCU release. Most notably, Iron Man 2 was hot on the pre-Avengers hype. It understandably wasn't everyone's favorite, but almost a decade later it's still considered one of the worst out of over 20 of these things. And I find that crazy. It's my favorite!
