The Last Jedi Is A Discombobulated Incoherent Mess

January 11, 2018

Spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi and probably unpopular opinions follows! It is perhaps fitting that we will be seeing annual Star Wars movies every December for the foreseeable future.  If these trends keep up, it means I won’t lack for grievances to air when Festivus rolls around. The Last Jedi is a bad movie, despite it being somewhat enjoyable to watch.  Unlike Rogue One, the characters are somewhat developed…

Thor: Ragnarok Review

November 9, 2017

SPOILER ALERT: Spoilers for Thor: Ragnarok follows. When it comes to fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, I appear to be a bit of an outlier in the sense that I’ve actually enjoyed the Thor movies thus far and have always felt they were under-rated. In fact, I enjoyed the first two Thor movies more than I did Iron Man 2 and 3. Some people consider Thor bland, but I…

Dead Exit First Impressions Review

November 8, 2017

I had an opportunity to play Dead Exit a few days before its launch on the Xbox One platform. Dead Exit is a zombie-themed card game that feels very much like it could have been printed as a more traditional “board game” style of game with significant card mechanics. In Dead Exit, every card has two sides: the zombie side and the regular side. The regular side can be a…

SPOILER ALERT: Spoilers for Spider-Man: Homecoming follows.

If they’re anything like Homecoming, then the answer is yes. With Great Power… By now,…

What Mass Effect: Andromeda Got Wrong

May 17, 2017

SPOILER ALERT: Spoilers for all the Mass Effect games (particularly Andromeda) follow. For the past month or so, my free time has been dominated by Mass Effect: Andromeda. I’m a huge fan of the original trilogy, and consider them to collectively be well within my top 10 video games of all time. While the ending of Mass Effect 3 left a bit of a sour taste in my mouth (Indoctrination Theory…

Game Review: Star Wars Force Arena is an OK Way to Pass Some Time

March 9, 2017

I generally am not into mobile games. While I do play some games on my phone, it’s generally either Hearthstone or the World of Warcraft Legion App, both of which are tied to the PC in some way. I did play Fallout Shelter for a bit, but got frustrated with its quirks that made for some confusing moments. Generally, whenever I happen to try a mobile game it goes like…

App Review: Pact

January 10, 2017

To help out a podcast at my work that was doing a series on apps to help people be happier, healthier, wealthier and more productive, I volunteered to try out Pact for a month. And in honor of the New Year, I decided to write a review for Rampant Discourse. So here are my impressions after 4 weeks (and running) using Pact, the app that claims to let you “Earn…
