Dark for the 360 | Attempted

Back in November of 2018 I tried out a game called "Dark" on my xbox 360. I had been going on a binge of games that are not backwards compatible to the xbox one, so I thought I'd give this a try.The reviews for this game were bad...quite bad! (Metacritic score of 38%).  But the price was right (next to free...) and the concept seemed like an interesting concept: The game follows the story

Review: Hell's Heart

Hell's Heart by John Jackson MillerMy rating: 4 of 5 stars This book had me reacting out loud while I was listening to it. It was a rather interesting story of succession in the house of Krug (from Star Trek IV), and a rather interesting tale of discommendated, and what happens when the children of those who are no longer considered part of the community refuse to accept a system that is

Review: Defiance:The Essential Guide

Defiance:The Essential Guide by SyfyMy rating: 4 of 5 stars I was reminded of this ebook while rewatching Defiance this summer. This was a "getting to know the world of Defiance" sort of book.  I think it mostly focused on the TV show, even though Defiance was originally envisioned as a transmedia type of franchise (with the eponymous MMO still running/limping along to this day). Too

Review: Star Trek vs. Transformers

Star Trek vs. Transformers by John BarberMy rating: 3 of 5 stars Another cross-over, this one a bit more recent I think compared the DC Legion of Superheroes one I read.  An interesting Star Trek: The Animated Series cross-over with Transformers. A bit campy for my tastes, but if you view it from an animated series perspective it ain't half bad. I guess Transformers is now in the official

Review: Star Trek / Legion of Super-Heroes

Star Trek / Legion of Super-Heroes by Chris RobersonMy rating: 3 of 5 stars I've been making my way through various star trek comics and books this year.  This one I got from Humble Bundle (I think) a while back and it's a cross-over between TOS and DC's Legion of Superheroes.   It wasn't a bad story, but the DC Superhero part didn't really grab me all that much. I guess

Review: Star Trek: Save What From Heaven is With the Breezes Blown

Star Trek: Save What From Heaven is With the Breezes Blown by Mark LargentMy rating: 4 of 5 stars I came across this comic on Facebook recently.  Since it wasn't available as a CBR, I downloaded all the images from the facebook group and packaged my own for reading. This was not a bad fan comic. Some of dialogue needed a little tweaking, but the artwork was awesome.  The story doesn't

Review: Blood, Sweat, and Pixels: The Triumphant, Turbulent Stories Behind How Video Games Are Made

Blood, Sweat, and Pixels: The Triumphant, Turbulent Stories Behind How Video Games Are Made by Jason SchreierMy rating: 5 of 5 stars I rather enjoyed this book. The video game industry has been getting a lot of attention lately, and this book contributes to shedding some light into the working practices of this billion dollar industry. While I am not familiar with some of the game, from

Mortal Kombat 9 | Done

This is one of the games that I had gotten on a (summer?) sale a few years back on my xbox and had never gotten to it.  I was a fan of Mortal Kombat when it had come out in the arcades in the 90s but I hadn't really revisited the franchise since then. The sale seemed like a good opportunity to do so.I played this game on Story Mode and completed the main story, but as with any game of this type,

Assassin's Creed Origins | Done

I don't know when I started this game (sometime last summer), but (for now) it concludes my binging of the assassin's creed series on the Xbox (and I can say that I am 'all caught up' - at least as far as video games go - yes I wrote this last summer and I didn't bother updating this initial text 😝).  The game starts off with the last of the Medjay -an elite group of warriors who were serving
