Help!!

Okay, maybe that title’s a bit dramatic… But I need help with something. Originally, this blog had the Piano Black theme, but it was waaay too dull for my tastes, so I changed it to the current one. But now, it’s time for another change, so I’m asking all of you dear readers to help me find a really cool […]

GM Tips (RPG)

I’ve been a RPG gamemaster/dungeonmaster/storyteller for over 10 years (a short time compared to most out there, but I only got into RPGs during university), and since then I’ve picked up a few tips & tricks and general guidelines to running a game, which I’ll share with you here. I don’t have all the answers, I can’t tell you how […]

Arrow Season 1 Review

When I first saw the promos for Arrow, a show based on Green Arrow, I was skeptic. Sure, Smallville proved you could make a successful comic book adaptation series, but even that show had its very definite lows, the series ending being one for me, even if with Darkseid they had everything going for them to end it spectacularly. Thankfully, […]

Asura Review

Asura is one of the lowest states of rebirth in Buddhism; an existence of violence and force. It’s also the name of a Manga banned for most of its run for its graphic depiction of violence and cannibalism. It’s now been adapted into a fantastic movie. The movie is set in 15th century Japan, and famine, drought and hardships are […]

Man of Steel Review

Let’s get something out of the way: I’m not a Superman fan. I loved to hate him, finding him bland and uninteresting. At least until the New 52 reboot and the “new” Superman who’s exponentially more interesting and human and surprisingly relatable. With that said, you’ll understand how glad I am to say this: Man of Steel fucking rocks! It […]

Ys Series Review

In the past few months I’ve discovered a new game series which I may have mentioned a dozen times by now. They’re not new games; in fact they go way […]

The Star Wars Prequels…and how to fix them…

It’s no secret everyone pretty much hates the Star Wars prequels. I personally like them, but I admit they’re flawed, in both minor and major stuff. I actually like everything that’s been done beyond the movies themselves, i.e. Expanded Universe, like the Clone Wars animated series for example. With the recent Disney acquisition of Lucas Inc., I’ve been mulling over […]

In Defence of the Silent Protagonist

Silent heroes are a video game staple, from the days when there wasn’t really much of a choice to the modern days where their use is deliberate. Some silent heroes make sense while others don’t, and I’ll go through a few of them in this piece, as well as explain why the Silent Hero is such a good thing, why […]

The word Tolerance…and Respect

If there’s a post that’ll cost me my low amount of readers, this is it! But what the hell, I live to write! I had a random thought this morning (an especially dangerous event): Why do we use the word tolerant and tolerance when used with different lifestyles? Why not acceptance? Tolerance by definition means the ability to live with […]

Extremis-t: My thoughts on Iron Man 3 (spoilers)

WARNING: Spoilers & Intelligent arguments, so if those aren’t exactly your cup of tea, now’s the time to jump ship! I liked Iron Man 3, I thoroughly enjoyed it. That being said, I have some issues with it. Let me explain. When I first read that the plot involved The Mandarin and Extremis, I was stoked. I’m a hard-core Iron […]
