    New Terminator: Genisys Trailer Reveals Major Plot Twist

    "Genisys" is a contraction of "General Identification System". What's wrong with that?

    Ripoff Games That Became More Famous Than The Original.

    Doom has a lot of plot. Heck, there's so much plot that the game has plot twists. There's establishment of character and backstory for The Doom Marine, a very detailed setup, and a few surprises. Also, Half-Life's story is incredibly different. Just because they share a similar catalyst in...

    MovieBob leaving The Escapist

    No, no, no...! Well, there goes my favorite... The Big Picture was always something I looked forward to. It always felt the most personal, the most dynamic, the most intellectual... Guess I'll be here every Wednesday... other Wednesday... Whenever. But I guess this does give me a good catalyst...

    In the mood for some off-road racing. What's the craziest PC title you can recommend?

    Oh, Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing! I was wondering when someone was gonna mention that one! Yes, that Big Rigs! I could totally recommend it! It's very... relaxing.

    Revisit any games recently?

    I started replaying Pac-Man: Adventures in Time recently, though that was really more due to the fact that I'm working on a video review for the game, I needed to refresh my memory, see how much my perspective may have changed, and I needed to record my own footage. The game's a bit darker...

    Your odd uses of sauce/cheese/spreads/seasoning

    I like to each cheese crackers... dipped in applesauce! Oddly enough, Coco Puffs is the only cereal I will eat with milk in the bowl.

    "Smart" movies you think are dumb

    Well, not necessarily a movie, but I have definitely thought this about Neon Genesis Evangelion. It's not bad. Certainly not. It's fairly cool. Intelligent? Ptff...! No. It showed promise early on. In the first few episodes, it emphasized how horribly things can go awry when you place all...

    Confess your nerd sins

    I just finished Batman: Arkham Asylum and have started Batman: Arkham City. I don't think they're mind-blowing masterpieces with the capacity to cure cancer. It's all been a pretty typical mishmash of Castlevania and Splinter Cell, but watered down. And frankly, I'm not a fan of the combat...

    Review opinions that you disagree with.

    There was one quote from The Escapist's own Jim Sterling that I thought as rather bewildering to see. It was on the Steam page for Serious Sam 3: BFE, where he calls it a "dumb game" over and over again. For one thing... NO. He should know better than this. The Serious Sam series has some of the...

    Scarlett Johansson wanted for live action Ghost in the Shell film

    I could see multiple actresses playing Motoko. I mean, she has switched prosthetic bodies before. That could actually be pretty cool. How often do you see a live action film that does that? Mortal Kombat is an American videogame franchise.

    "Hatred" Reveal Trailer. Or as I like to call it, "The Next Big Controversy"

    So... it could be like Spec Ops: The Line or Hotline Miami... or it could make Shadow the Hedgehog really proud of itself. We don't know yet. It should be no coincidence that the title uses the Doom font. I can also recall coming a cross a side-scrolling flash game kinda like this that took...

    The Hawkeye Initiative

    Yeah... there's another side to this story. It's not as black and white as you think. A lot of the feminists are flat out making stuff up in a lot of these cases. Here, take a look...

    Let's talk about what I see as hypocrisy in the FPS genre.

    Wait... what? Comparing Pacific Rim to Transformers? Excuse me? That's like comparing Serious Sam to Battlefield, Saint's Row to Grand Theft Auto, or Highschool of the Dead to I am Legend. I'll have to explain the blatantly-obvious, but here I go... Giant humanoid machines locked in combat is...

    Sword Art Online and sexual assault as tension(spoilers for SAO II)

    Excuse me? Kirito goes on and on about what a wonderful man he thinks Kayaba is. He chats with him like they're old pals, he went on to praise his "bravery" when he fought Sugou, and let's not forget that "ultimate revelation" of his. When faced wth the question of why he created this death trap...

    Help me find an anime

    Kekkaishi An action series about two childhood friends who fight off monsters called "ayakashi" that attack their school grounds every night as it sits on an area that oozes immense power. It contains good role models and avoids a lot of clichés. The female lead, Tokine, is also handled very...
