REVIEWS Screencheat Review
The first FPS in history where looking at your friends’ screens isn’t cheating; it’s a requirement.

Natural Doctrine Review
This actually might be "your dad's" Japanese TRPG, and for those with a hankering for it, that can be a very good thing.

Well, Gamergate has spilled over into the mainstream media and the coverage appears to be nearly uniformly dreadful. Take " What is Gamergate, and What Does It Say About Gender In Video Games? " by David Konnow as an example.  It appears that the writer has done little to no...

Netflix Picks of the Week (8-23-2010)

Posted on Monday, August 23 @ 17:29:11 Eastern by Blake_Morse
Duke's out of town at the moment, so we're one short on our recommendations. Still, this should be enough to get you through the week. And Chris's film even has nudity in it!

Nick: Children of Invention - This movie got personal. Not many films talk about a child's perspective of divorce or star Chinese Americans in non-stereotypical roles. Evicted from their home and forced to become squatters, Raymond and Tina attempt to cope, with their single mother who attempts to make ends meet but is soon caught in a pyramid scheme. With their parent missing, the two children are forced to take care of themselves. This is not an overly dramatic film with excitement, but a realistic portrayal of children who are forced into independence.






Blake: Star Trek: First Contact - Things get personal for Capt. Jean-Luc Picard as he wrestles with his inner demons concerning the Borg, who have somehow transported themselves along with the Enterprise and its crew back in time to the day before Earth discovered warp speed. I'm a big fan of TNG and had not seen any of the Next Gen films before, other than Generations, but that was just an excuse to kill Capt. Kirk, so it hardly counts.

The thing that amused me about First Contact is that it's half epic space conflict, as Picard tries to save the ship from being assimilated, and half wacky summer camp hijinks as Geordi, Ryker, and Troi try to convince the alcoholic inventor, Zefram Cochrane, that he is a total, hardcore genius who will usher in a new era of peace on Earth. Some of my favorite episodes of the series involve taking on the Borg so I really enjoyed that half. I could've done without the panty raid vibe of the planet side aspects of the film, but it's still totally worth the watch.



Chris: Man, Woman and the Wall - Japan is a country where population density is at maximum, personal privacy is at a premium, and perversity is—as the ad-campaign says—Priceless. Enter our protagonist, the dweeby, lonely, mostly-well-meaning Tokyoite voyeur/loser who aurally spies on his hottie next-door neighbor Satsuki (award-winning Japanese 'AV idol' Sora Aoi) through the rice-paper-thin apartment wall, imagining her primary-colored, Hello Kitty world—only to be drawn into her bubble-baths, personal phone conversations, sex-sessions... and ultimately troubling, complicated reality. Directed by Yamamoto Masahai (Junk Food), Man, Woman and the Wall falls somewhere between 'erotic thriller' and dark, dorky comedy, and offers a quirky slice-of-life look at workaday life in modern Japan. (And yes, yes: You're gonna see Sora Aoi totally, full-frontally naked at some point, too... but I'm not gonna tell you when. Like you totally weren't thinking about it. Spleesh.)
