A Look At Old Video Game Ads: Part 2

Folks, if you’re like me and grew up in the 80s and 9os, then you remember that we had some pretty…

Talk It Out - Favorite nerd stores

Talk It Out - Favorite nerd stores

It’s almost 5 on a Friday. So let’s get the weekend off right with some good old fashioned nerd talk. It’s time for another Talk It Out.

I think it’s fair to say that most of us have a locale where we spend time with our brothers and sisters who share our passions, buy our swag, play our games or just kill time. The nerd store is one of the best part of having a geeky hobby. And to close out...

I was browsing over on /r/television on Reddit and thought this was some pretty cool news.

A lot of comments were about how Rick and Morty would be massively delayed so i guess if you’re a fan of that show it might not be good news. But it looks like a good pickup for the new MST3K. I am quite impressed with the way Joel has gotten this project going so quickly. It’s obvious there...

Does anyone remember the ADV boxset controversy?

Does anyone remember the ADV boxset controversy?

I was working on an article for Ani-Tay and i was going to reference when A.D Vision started releasing box sets of their anime. I recall there was some kind of minor controversy but i can’t recall the details. None of my google searching brought up anything. I think it had something to do with ADV removing extras that were on the single discs for the box sets. I was hoping someone might...

From The Vault  - Does George Lucas have game? or Blame SFC Magazine

This is the first of what I hope will be a regular new column. It will be a lot less regular than my other articles, Fact Of The Day and Talk It Out due to the work scanning and uploading the images.

I hope to do one of these at least once a month. The genesis behind this is that when I was away on vacation I found a bunch of old magazines from the late 90s and early 00s. There was a lot of...

Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends.

Good evening friends. It’s time for more wacky adventures in Gotham City, minus the insane rich man in tights and a cowl. Just an insane cop turned bounty hunter, and a crime lord mayor. Leave your reactions in the comments, and as always i’ll drop additional recaps later and my takes when I am done stealing them.
