Nintendo Aims to Create Movies

In an interview with Japanese newspaper The Asashi Shimbun, Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima said that the video game giant was looking to bring their iconic (and massively profitable) stable of characters to movies. While Kimishima didn’t come out and mention the train wreck that was the 90’s Super Mario Brothers movie (I used the word awful at least four times in one paragraph to describe it), he went out of his way to say that Nintendo would be looking to keep everything in house, saying “We want to do as much as possible ourselves.” Read more …

Quantum Break Review

Time is breaking, fracturing. Multiple timelines converging into one, bending the fabric of physics and causing untold destruction.

You are Jack Joyce, intimately tied to the two people that caused this to happen, brother to one, William Joyce and childhood friend of the other, Paul Serene. You are, by all accounts, a waste of potential. Outrunning anything and anyone that causes you to feel anything. That is, until Paul reaches out; he needs help with something.

The thing is, though, while today I have far more systems on which to play a larger library of games than before, I find myself gaming far less than I ever did when I was younger. I say younger, really less than I did 2 years ago. Read more …

My First Gaming Tattoo

So last year I turned 30. Three zero. An age of responsibility and adulthood. I am no longer in my twenties and have decided that I am a little late off the mark for making poor life choices. I mean, I have been on this planet for more than three decades and I have done very little to actually make my family ashamed of me. I haven’t even been to prison, and for a young man from Texas that’s pretty scandalous.

So late last year, I decided to fix that. Not the prison part. I’m not going completely crazy. I’m just getting a tattoo. Read more …
