The winner is Joey Davis, … Continue reading The iPhone Has Landed! (Updated)
Pet Zombies is a new game from Majesco entertainment that takes the cutesy little pet games like Nintendogs and replaces the cute little puppies with disgusting undead creatures. Intrigued? You should be. It’s a good bit of fun, and you won’t feel completely emasculated playing this the way you would if your friends caught you putting little ribbons in your cocker spaniel’s fur. Continue reading Pet Zombies for Nintendo 3DS

Apparently ThinkGeek has a USB pregnancy test that you plug into your computer and get in-depth analysis instead of just some cryptic lines or colors or whatever the fuck those things show you. The lovely Maid Marian tried to share this with the crew and predictably, they made it weird. This is why we can’t have nice things. this is also why I love working … Continue reading Behind the Curtain: Waterworks
Logitech’s ultra-portable Bluetooth keyboard turns out to be a nice addition to an Android 3.0 tablet. It doesn’t exactly make me giddy, but it’s still pretty damn cool. Continue reading Logitech® Tablet Keyboard for Android™ 3.0+
Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken is a new downloadable PS3 exclusive platformer with some puzzle elements. Actually I am a bit hesitant to call it a platformer since you don’t really collect anything for points. It’s more akin to a light shooter than a platformer. Whatever, it’s a game. And a fairly good one, at that. Continue reading “Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken”
When you apply for a press badge with NYCC, that apparently puts you on a mailing list. I’m not upset about it at all because I learned about a couple of real gems that I might not have otherwise. One of them is the independent film Boy Wonder (SPOILER ALERT it’s not Robin) I received a movie announcement in the mail a few days before … Continue reading Boy Wonder: Seeker of Justice, or Mental Patient?
I had an opportunity to speak with Aub Driver, the Publicity Coordinator for Dark Horse Comics. He was very gracious when answering my questions, and I could tell by the way he talked that he really likes his job. I mean come on, the guy gets to talk about comics all day. And not just comics, but all of the stuff that Dark Horse has their hands in; movies, action figures, vinyl statues, collectible pint glasses, and all manner of kick-ass entertainment merch. The first time you meet Aub, you immediately know that he’s not your typical PR person. Just look at him. Long blond hair in a tight ponytail, big black boots, a black jacket with Dark Horse buttons all over it, and piercings. And that’s why he’s perfect for Dark Horse, because they aren’t your typical publishing company. Continue reading “NYCC 2011 Dark Horse Comics”
Well hello there. You may have heard about this thing called New York Comic Con. It’s nothing special really, unless you like things that are awesome. Oh, you do like those things? Well then, dear reader, allow me to tell you a few things before I turn in for the night.
Yeah, that’s right boys and girls. I’m throwing Papa Agrippa an assist tonight. It’s not my usual fare with bitching and pissing and moaning about stuff, but I managed to get some of that in as well. So let’s get down to it.
I got really lucky this week and managed to win 2 free tickets to an advance screening of the new movie Real Steel starring Hugh Jackman and Evangeline Lilly, from You Don’t Know Jersey. It’s a little site with all kinds of cool stuff that’s happening around New Jersey. If you live in or around Jersey (or you have a weird interest in local events in some other state) you should check it out.
Now about the movie.
