Star Wars: Thrawn – Alliances – Timothy Zahn

Fresh off the heels of my review for Star Wars: Most Wanted, I’m back again to share my thoughts on another Star Wars novel. This time I’m taking a look at the sequel to Timothy Zahn’s excellent reintroduction of Grand Admiral Thrawn, a book called Thrawn: Alliances. Just to recap a bit, in the last …

Dungeons & Dragons: Into the Borderlands (Official Reprint)

This is a post that I’ve been wanting to write for sometime. Now that I’m all caught up on my current D&D releases, this is a good time to take a look at some of the “deep cuts” that are floating around bookstore shelves. In the past, I’ve discussed two third-party D&D books; the Tome …

Record Shop: Red Hot Chili Peppers – Freaky Styley

The last time I wrote one of these Record Shop articles, I talked about the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ debut album. In this post, I’ve decided to stick with the trend and take a look at their sophomore release, Freaky Styley. If you’re familiar with the RHCP, you’ll know that their early music sounds nothing …

Nerd Fuel: Mystic Monk – Chocolate Cherry

It seems like every coffee company has a special brew for each season. Our friends at Mystic Monk are no exception. With the month of February coming to a close, I wanted to take a look at Mystic Monk’s February release, the Valentine’s Day themed Chocolate Cherry.

It Came From Japan: Ultraman

A while back, I shared my thoughts on a Japanese television show called Ultra Q. In that article, I discussed my childhood fascination with a character that’s somewhat related to that show, Ultraman. In case you are not familiar with the name, Ultraman is a giant robotic-looking alien who defends Earth against terrible monsters. My …

Review: Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball

Valentine’s Day is almost here! That means it’s time for another “questionable” game review… Last year, I turned up the heat with a (somewhat belated) review of Waifu Uncovered. But, this year I’m right on time with my thoughts on the Xbox classic; Dead or Alive: Xtreme Beach Volleyball! As you may have guessed by …

Star Wars: Most Wanted – Rae Carson

It’s been almost a year since I last posted a review for a Star Wars novel. If you want to know the truth, it’s because the last one I read was so terrible that it took me this long to build up the desire to read another. Now, when it comes to Star Wars novels …

Nerd Fuel: Mystic Monk – French Vanilla

Over the years I’ve talked about a handful of coffees made by the Mystic Monks (a real monastery of monks out in Wyoming). But for Christmas, my wife gifted me with a Mystic Monk coffee-of-the-month subscription. This means my Mystic Monk reviews should start coming with a little more frequency. My first delivery came in …

Review: Dead or Alive 3

Several months ago, I shared my thoughts on a game compilation called Dead or Alive Ultimate. This Xbox-exclusive release collected the first two games in the Dead or Alive series (a franchise originally popular on the Sony Playstation) and made them available on an entirely new system. But, even though this collection contained the first …

Dungeons & Dragons: Tasha’s Cauldon of Everything

Dungeons & Dragons is more popular than ever. As a result, fans are clamoring for more options than what can be found within the covers of the basic Player’s Handbook. Since the release of the 5th Edition of D&D, there’s been a handful of releases that provided a few new options here and there. But …
