The Rise Of Skywalker

I’ve not actually seen the new Star Wars trailer, but my Twitter feed has been inundated with every possible reaction one could imagine. I’ll eventually get around to looking at it, but the Star Wars universe isn’t something I’m really interested in. I didn’t mind the last 2 movies, but I took my time before […]

UFC 236 Looks … Okay

Not that it’s going to prevent me from watching it, but the line-up for this weekend’s UFC 236 fight card is pretty dubious. Outside of the main and co-main event fights, there’s not a whole lot of match-ups that I am actively looking forward to. There’s Jouban / Grant, Turner / Frevola, Reis / Pantoja […]

I Finally Tried Dominion

My friend whom I try out various board and card games with finally gave me an opportunity to try Dominion. For the past several years, whenever we’d try a new game that had any passing similarities with it, I’d inevitably get asked “have you played Dominion?” Until now, the answer was always ‘no.’ We managed […]

New Project Hate Album (Hopefully)

My favourite band of all time has material written for their next full-length and have begun their 5th donation experiment (read: crowd funding). You can get the details here, along with a lengthy history on the project which dates its origins back over 2 decades. I hope the goal is reached, because I really want […]

Aeon’s End: Buried Secrets

We picked up this new expansion, or add-on — I am honestly not sure what descriptor is correct — for Aeon’s End. We were somewhat disappointed that it didn’t include any new nemesis monsters to fight, and we’re pretty sure the new nemesis cards are just the contents of Aeon’s End: Legacy, but the new […]
