Sushi Go!

Saturday, December 31st, 2016

This Christmas, Sam got a copy of Sushi Go. I know we are late to the party with this game, but I’m certainly glad we got it. Sushi Go’s visual style is just adorable. The cards themselves are nice looking and very cute. It’s also simple, making it easy to know what each card is […]

Thursday, November 10th, 2016

The National Museum of Play has inducted three new toys to the National Toy Hall of Fame. For 2016, the inductees were: Dungeons & Dragons Fisher-Price Little People Swing I find it interesting that Dungeons and Dragons made the list, as I would not normally consider it a “toy”, given the nature of the game. […]

Doctor Strange – Thoughts and Impressions

Monday, November 7th, 2016

I had the opportunity to watch “Doctor Strange” over the weekend. As with many of the Marvel movies, I was excited about a new entry to the MCU. There are spoilers in this review, so consider yourself warned. This movie is another origin story, this time for Dr Steven Strange. In brief, he’s an egotistical, […]

Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood – 2010

Monday, January 10th, 2011

While this was received as a gift for the multiplayer component, i have yet to actually play online. I cant stop playing the single player campaign. The story is great. The mechanics are solid. I find myself losing hours at a time before having to force myself to turn it off and go to bed. […]

Predators – 2010

Saturday, January 1st, 2011

We watched this over NYE. It was a decent action flick, though paled in comparison to the original 1987 Arno movie. It was treated as a sequel of sorts, but still self contained. For an action flick, it was relatively low-budget. The special effects were solid, but never completely over the top. Adrien Brody did […]
