Resident Evil 6 Announced

I have good news and bad news. Capcom has officially announced Resident Evil 6. That may be the good news–the truly good news, in my opinion, is that you once again get to play as Leon S. Kennedy (and Chris Redfield too). It is said to be released on November 20, 2012. Ok, now savor […]

Etsy Tuesday: A Song of Ice and Fire Geeks

My currently-reigning obsession is George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series (better known as Game of Thrones to the layman). So, since I am sick and not in the mood to do any political science tonight, I decided to go on etsy and post some of my favorite A Song of Ice […]

I’m expecting that they will be similar to the Star Wars collection (except for buildings instead of spaceships, naturally) rather than the […]

The Dark Knight Rises…Six Months Early

So the news on the internet is that there are already midnight showings of The Dark Knight Rises which are sold out in New York and LA. Apparently, Warner Bros. gives theaters discretion over when they begin to sell advanced tickets and these theaters began to sell them when the DKR prologue played during the […]
