I would describe myself as a really frustrated gamer. You see, I love games but I don’t have the time, patience, or skills needed to finish through a complicated game like, say, Portal. I’d probably end up cutting myself in half because I’d turn off a portal while I’m halfway through. Put me in the middle of a multiplayer FPS match and soon enough I’d find both teams ending their match and turn it into a “who will kill Ade the most” game.
Basically, I’m this guy:
So I contented myself with not playing games on a console and just grabbing my phone and playing the fuck out of these nice games that are currently taking up my time. Continue reading
With Doctor Who series 7 finished (read my review of The Name Of The Doctor here) I actually have time to watch other things. Actually, I’ve been watching a LOT of stuff, but I didn’t feel like sharing mundane stuff like the TV shows on my blog before. There’s GetGlue for that, but who cares. I’ll talk about the TV shows and movies I’ve been watching lately because why the hell not?
Star Trek Into Darkness
The guy playing Sherlock Holmes goes against the jolly crew of the Enterprise and all hell breaks loose. No, seriously. Space ships get blown up, people (red shirts AND OTHER PEOPLE) die, the Enterprise gets fucked up real good, RoboCop rides a spaceship, Alice Eve shows off her body in a gratuitously unnecessary scene (but we’re thankful), and Sherlock Holmes gets to chew on scenery and make all the ladies swoon and make their nerdy dates jealous as fuck.

Hey guys, I’m back! I’m really, really back! And now that I’m here, on the internet, blogging again, aaaand… I don’t really know what to write about. So I’ll have to play it safe. I’m here, and I’m writing about something that you may have seen me talk about in the past: Doctor Who.
Also, I just watched the new Neil Gaiman-penned episode, and damn it if I can’t talk about it.
For the record, I really, really loved Gaiman’s first time writing Doctor Who, the sublime The Doctor’s Wife. It dives deep into the show’s 50-year old mythology and adds something to it and takes the Doctor’s relationship with the old sexy TARDIS into another level. That episode isn’t just the best of New Who, it’s one of the best episodes of the show, bar none. With that in mind I had really high expectations coming in to Nightmare in Silver.
I really want this episode to not suck. Series 7B has been, in a word, directionless. I know Moffat was really adamant in his desire to have a no two-parter, no series arc season, but… wow. I can’t really describe what a mess this half of a season turned out. Except for Journey To The Centre of the TARDIS, the episodes suffered from the no two-parter rule.
Which brings us here. Spoilers ahoy!

Hello, everyone. It is time once again for my review of the latest Doctor Who episode, so please indulge me as I bore the shit out of you while I talk about the various intricacies of the Christmas Special. Ok, ready, guys? Here we go.
I wasn’t able to talk about the last two episodes before The Snowmen, mainly because The Power of Three and The Angels Take Manhattan were two of the most heartbreaking Doctor Who episodes I have seen since Rose Tyler and Donna Noble’s respective exits. I really, really, loved the Ponds, ok? Rory’s my second-favorite companion after Donna, and we all know about my unhealthy obsession with Amy Pond and her ginger sexiness. Which is why I was both dreading and anticipating Clara’s debut as companion in The Snowmen. How the hell is she going to live up to the Ponds? Also, is she going to be another sassy, sexy, companion in the same vein as Amy and River?
Full review, plus spoilers, after this point! Continue reading
I’ll let you in on a secret: I’m not much of a gamer. Sure, I can survive a couple of rounds in Tekken or Street Fighter, and I’ve put in countless hours finishing Resident Evil 2 and 3, but I never bothered owning a console since my PS1 broke, I don’t have any games installed on my PC, and if you put me in the middle of an FPS multiplayer match I will suck so bad my teammates will kill me once the 3rd match starts.
But then, I’ve always loved scary games with loads of zombies in them, hence my fondness of the Resident Evil series, even though I failed to finish 4, 5 kinda sucks, and I didn’t even bother with 6 due to the bad press. And, yeah, don’t get me started on the fucking stupid movies. Which brings us to The Walking Dead: The Game.
I’ve heard nothing but good things about this episodic game from my officemates. Once a new episode comes out, they’d download it, finish it in a day, and end up talking about it like some TV show. I decided to give it a try. And even though at $20 it was hella expensive for an iOS game, if everything people say about this game was true, it’ll be worth it. Continue reading
