The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #143

Oh, yeah! There’s a lot of white powder around my studio. It’s probably not what you think it is, though. The biggest news is that the unaltered, original Star Wars trilogy is likely to be heading to Blu-ray in 2015! This is fantastic news for those of us who hold the pre-Special Editions so dearly. The [...]

The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #141

Yes! I skipped another one! I admit it! Things happen. I’ve been a busy little boy lately, okay? Anyway, I’m in a really good mood during this show, but there are people out there who really need to shut the hell up. They’re making the rest of humanity look bad. You’ll understand more when you [...]

The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Podcast #135

Hey! I didn’t skip it this time, but I really need to stop recording these shows late at night.  Netflix streams in 4K while streaming prices are expected to rise, Frozen becomes the highest grossing animated film ever, Spider-Man 2 is off to a great start overseas, the final X-Men trailer is released, Peter Laird (co-creator of [...]

As My PS4 Sits Idly By

Here I sit with a new, launch-day PlayStation 4. I have had none of the problems that a few people have supposedly been having. The blue light of death and the red line of death have thus far been absent. Standing proudly next to my PS2-emulation PS3 (with a recently-upgraded 500 GB hard drive), the [...]

Grand Theft Auto V: A Completionist’s Nightmare

I absolutely love Grand Theft Auto V. The world of Los Santos is massive and has so much detail that I spent the first few hours driving, flying, and biking around the map, doing nothing more than soaking in the gorgeous detail of the environment. The three protagonists actually have compelling stories, even though I [...]

My First 30 Minutes With Ouya

So far I’ve been playing with the Ouya for about 30 minutes and have tried out three games so far: “Flashout 3D” (racing), “Mini Squadron” (arcade), and “The Pinball Arcade” (self-explanatory). “Flashout 3D” is incredibly good. (The closest equivalent would be “Wipeout HD” on the PlayStation.) The graphics are very smooth and fluid and the [...]

Ouya is here!

My Kickstarter-funded Ouya just arrived today. Sadly, thanks to two back-to-back videography projects, I won’t have time to really play with this little unit for a while, possibly even closer to its primary release day.  But maybe I’ll get lucky and find some time between projects. You can expect my own review as soon as [...]

PAX East 2013 – Days 2 and 3

I planned on having an article for each day at PAX, as shown by my previous article that ended with “Day 1”. The realities of doing such a thing were outweighed by the fact that Saturday night is always a late night at PAX East, thanks to many of us from the Destructoid community closing [...]

PAX East 2013 – Day 1

For those who are not in the know, PAX East is the biggest gaming convention (both video and board games) on the east coast. It’s the sister convention to PAX Prime, which is held in Seattle, and the newest addition, PAX Australia. All of the PAX conventions are the brain-children of the on-line comic Penny [...]
