“We are Forerunners. Guardians of all that exists. The roots of the Galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending. Where there is life, the wisdom of our countless generations has saturated the soil. Our strength is a luminous sun, towards which all intelligence blossoms… And the impervious shelter, beneath which it has prospered.”

Flogging a Naughty Dog

The reviews for The Last of Us 2 are in, and they are… SAVAGE: Why do actual gamers absolutely hate this game? Because it is apparently PACKED full of social justice bullshit, directly in line with the leaks that emerged about a month ago: It’s...

HALO needs a major revamp

Seeing as how HALO Infinite is slated for release in 2020, a full five years after HALO 5: Guardians was released – which is by far the biggest gap between flagship HALO games in the franchise – here is an interesting perspective on the ways in...

Five years sure feels “Infinite”

The new HALO INFINITE trailer dropped yesterday. I’ll just shut up now and let you absorb the awesomeness: Right. Here is my sober, calm, carefully weighed, objective, and totally unbiased reaction to this trailer: ‘MURICA. The God-Emperor, Donaldus...

“Mortally challenged”

In yesterday’s post about the upcoming new HALO game (pause here while I recover my breath from cheering for a full minute), my buddy Last Redoubt pointed out that there is also a new DOOM game aimed for release pretty soon this year. It’s called DOOM...

HALO Infinite

New HALO game. Which as far as I’m concerned is almost as important as the question of who’s going to be the next freakin’ Pope. I can’t believe I missed the announcement trailer dropping at E3 – that was two months ago and...

Soldier of the Federation

So I’m reading STARSHIP TROOPERS (again, for the umpteenth time), because it is, of course, the greatest military science fiction novel ever written, as well as one of the most important lessons in civics and politics ever put to paper. And it has occurred...

Sounds promising

One of the greatest movies of all time is going to be turned, at long last, into a sort of “horror-RPG” video game- and if the producers of the potential game have anything to say about it, this isn’t going to be your typical cookie-cutter...

The Spirit of Fire returns

HALO WARS was not, by any stretch of anybody’s imagination, the best HALO game ever. It wasn’t even in the top five. It is difficult, after all, to imagine an RTS game making much sense in a universe generally defined by what was originally a...

So is it any good, then?

Time to take a slight break from all of the serious stuff about politics- since, after all, we’re looking at a Trumpslide in a few days’ time, which is going to be absolutely frakkin’ hilarious to watch when the news media and the...
