    “Cyberpunk” is a term that tends to be used a bit too frequently these days, often describing a video game’s look rather than actually having anything to do with the genre. CD Projekt is looking to change that with the upcoming open-world RPG ‘Cyberpunk 2077′, which is based on the classic pen-and-paper role-playing game. The […]

    This week’s episode centered on one of Whovians’ favorite trio, Madame Vastra, Strax and Jenny and brought out the incredible acting styles of Diana Rigg and her daughter Rachel Stirling.

  • Comic Book Review: ‘X-Factor’ #255

    Posted Sunday, May 5th, 2013 06:30 pm GMT -5

    X-Factor is always a bit off of the mainstream of mutant-kind that get mixed up in a lot of weird problems and the current story line is no different.

    Posted Sunday, May 5th, 2013 04:00 pm GMT -5

    Leave it to Stephen Colbert to tell it like it is. In his latest rant, he takes to task the high profile superhero summer films, specifically ‘Man of Steel‘ and ‘Iron Man 3′,  that he feels are “destroying America.” Colbert actually has a point. After all, Superman is supposed to represent truth, justice and the American […]

    Posted Sunday, May 5th, 2013 02:30 pm GMT -5

    The last few issues of Iron Man were all about Tony Stark being held responsible for the death of the Phoenix by a race known as the Voldi.

    Posted Sunday, May 5th, 2013 01:30 pm GMT -5

    X-Men Legacy has taken a complete change from where the comic left off after the Marvel NOW! relaunch. Currently the focus is on Charles Xavier’s son, Legion, who is quite possibly the most powerful mutant that has been born. At the very least he ranks up there when he’s able to control his powers. The […]

  • ‘Supernatural: The Great Escape’ – Recap

    Posted Saturday, May 4th, 2013 02:53 pm GMT -5

    After the latest filler, this week’s Supernatural installment firmly ensconced us back into the race for the tablets. And after “The Great Escapist”, I no longer wonder how hard-hitting the end to the season will be, rather how many more questions will we be wanting to be answered once the final credits roll on May […]
