It bothers me mainly because these things are not fundamentally any different from booster packs for Magic, Yu-Gi-Oh or Pokemon. If they're ready, willing and able to regulate the video game version,...

I usually roll my eyes are review bombing, because it's typically just a collective temper tantrum...but, I saw that particular review and it is quite clever.

It's so much easier to just watch Rotten Tomatoes and pretend like your uninformed opinion is actually worth a damn in any given conversation.

I know this game is pretty popular, but it's one I've always ignored and/or written off for an admittedly dumb reason: It follows the annoying free-to-play naming convention of "<Object> of...

I like Jeffrey Dean Morgan; he's pretty good in most of his projects and doesn't typically do the "Negan shtick". Hell, the entire reason why i'm excited for the Flashpoint movie is that he was...

Looks interesting, for sure. If nothing else, it at least appears to be a unique horror movie; they're trying something different.

Meh. It only works if the character is actually suitable for such a rating.

Slapping an R rating on a movie doesn't make it inherently "better". An R-rated Spider-Man movie, for example, would...

Persona 5 has a killer soundtrack; its one of the very few games in recent years that had one good enough for me to want to track down a copy.

I'm...not actually sure which is worse. I'd almost rather drop the $40 and be done with it, but it's really no better at the end of the day.

See, that's perfectly fine. If the threshold was 40 hours per hero character and they didn't have the microtransaction bullshit...it'd still be excessive, but at least it's a legitimate challenge.
