While maybe not as good as the original in this writers eyes, I still enjoyed myself immensely and was cracking up for a good chunk of the movie. As I tend to do after the movie was over, I took a second to ponder where I’d rank Guardians Vol. 2 among the rest of…

If you live in Canada like I do, chances are you probably watch a lot of hockey. The other day, while I was sitting down on my couch getting ready to watch the Flames play, TSN ran a pre-show segment with some of their analysts building the ‘perfect hockey player’.

Sephiroth. Liquid Snake. Kuja. The Illusive Man. Albedo. What do all of these guys have in common? Easy. They’re all amazing villains. Creating a villain can be somewhat of a tricky art.

It’s one of the most critically acclaimed games of all time. It’s Nintendo’s fastest selling stand alone launch title ever. And it completely flipped the switch on the series in a way not seen since Ocarina of Time almost twenty years earlier. Breath of the Wild is certainly a landmark achievement…

From the first moments that I started playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, I could tell I was in for an amazingly rewarding experience. The world around me was captivating, breathtaking, and full of wonder at seemingly every turn. What the game lacks in plot, it more than makes up for in its ability to immerse you into this fantastical world, one where every blade of grass and every drop of snow feels like it tells a…

I will be talking about spoilers (or at least memories and after game events) from not only Breath of the Wild, but also almost every main entry Legend of Zelda game. Proceed with caution. Still here? Good. Let’s continue. When The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was officially unveiled at E3 2016, I couldn’t wait to see Link, Zelda, Tingle and the gang again in a new adventure.

We’ve had multiple shootings, terrorist acts, and other tragedies come to pass. And with the constant passing of heroes of yesterday, icons like David Bowie or Prince, to Carrie Fisher or Alan Rickman, the world seems to be growing just a little bit darker with each day.  But on March 3rd, we have a…
