The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #152

Lots of new products were announced at CES 2015, but one of the most exciting for me is that ultra-HD content will soon be available on Blu-ray! Yes, you’ll need a new player to read the 100 GB discs, but this is the big thing that most US households (86% according to Akamai) need to […]

The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #151

I know, I know. I skipped another one. Hopefully this new year will bring a new need for me to get a post when a new show is done. Then again, no one sees this blog anyway, so it probably doesn’t matter. Anyway, I give what will hopefully be the only roundup of The Interview […]

Detective Grimoire (Review)

I’m a sucker for detective games as long as they’re not insanely hard. Some games love to stop you in your tracks if you don’t find the most obscure clue. Usually, such games require you to find clues by clicking all over the place hoping that you accidentally click on whatever it expects you to […]

The Last Tinker: City of Colors (Review)

“A kid’s platformer” might be the best way describe The Last Tinker: City of Colors by German game developers Mimimi Productions and LOOT Entertainment. Blending elements from classic platformers like Ratchet & Clank, Okami, and Banjo Kazooie, Tinker aims to bring a platforming world of brilliant color that’s accessible to everyone, including the youngest gamers.
