Not a big week to open the month of May, but we do have two big releases of note. Gearbox releases their new shooter Battleborn onto PC, PS4, and the Xbox One. We’ll see if the gameplay will win over Borderlands fans, or if its similarity will make them take a pass. On the big screen we get one of the more highly anticipated comic book movies of the year, Captain America: Civil War. Advance reviews have been good, and it’s already doing well at the box office overseas...Read More

Telltale Games The Walking Dead series has never ended on a joyful note, and yet there was still a satisfying conclusion to each of the seasons so far. The Walking Dead: Michonne miniseries continues the trend of downbeat endings, with one notable conclusion- this one just didn’t feel satisfying. It just came to an end, and even with the more action packed final minutes (this final episode, titled “What We Deserve”, is the shortest of the three, clocking in at just over an hour), it never felt satisfying...Read More

At the time of this writing, I have 13 hours to go until I get my hands on my copy of Dark Souls III, the newest in the franchise from From Software. A rather ominous number, perhaps foretelling the type of luck I will have once I set foot in the land of Lothric. Can’t be any worse than the luck I’ve had in Boletaria, Lordran, or Drangleic, or even Yharnam, for that matter. So why in the world would I want to get into yet another game that simply wants to kill me?
Because the series has a hold on me now...Read More
