The Widescreen Podcast #227

It’s that time again! Boston beckons and the lifelong gamer in me is drawn to PAX East like Odo was drawn back to the Founders’ homeworld. (Kudos to those who catch the reference.) But before I depart, one last podcast must be done … and here it is. For whatever weird reason, you’re here to […]

Review: Submerged (2016)

A lot of exploration games exist. Sadly most of them involve facets of gaming that can be a hindrance if not implemented well or play styles that not everyone enjoys. Survival tactics, psychological horror, or incoherent stories tend to be factors. Some exploration games turn out to be nothing more than linear “walking simulators”. That’s […]

The Widescreen Podcast #219 – The Hero for December

Many weird things happened between this episode and the last: I became a hero for December for someone I respect, Disney takes another step closer to becoming a monopoly, and those who are supposed to represent the people proved once again that they don’t care about anything but their corporate masters. The result is that […]

The Widescreen Podcast #215

Believe it or not, the time has finally come and the new widescreen.org has been unleashed! It’s not perfect, but it’s leaps and bounds better than what it used to be. It’s HTML5 compliant, there is no Flash requirement (or –groan– Real Player or whatever), the video segments are now all on YouTube, and audio […]

Review – Styx: Master of Shadows

Styx: Master of Shadows by Cyanide Studio is in many ways a game that screams out to people like me who fell in love with Dishonored and the Thief series. Focused on stealth with lots of items to steal and many ways to reach the intended destination with a bit of Assassin’s Creed thrown it, […]

The Widescreen.org Movie and Media Postcast #155

Yes, I skipped a few episodes here. Sorry about that; however, you should be checking out my official podcast site or subscribing through iTunes anyway. (I’m working on adding more streaming options for those who don’t like or can’t run iTunes.) Also, I’ve decided that I’m going to start posting show notes here as well as on widescreen.org […]

If Video Game Fans Were Like Sports Fans

I want to start off by saying emphatically that I don’t hate sports. I’ll go golfing, or play football or baseball with friends. But sitting in front of a TV and watching others play is something that I do not find exciting or interesting at all. Other people do, as evidenced by the immense global […]

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 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 […]
