While Inception isn’t Christopher Nolan’s best film, it’s a taut psychological thriller that’s really only bogged down by its ambition to be all things to all summer moviegoers.
Time to check back in with Final Fantasy XIII (and model through it), after a hiatus of epic proportion. I’m at about hour 10 and Lightning’s still sassy, but I did spot an alt-lifestyle haircut. Onward and upward! Or downward. I think Pulse is down.
More zany stuff went down at San Diego Comic-Con 2010 than you can shake a stick at, but we’ll try to shake a stick anyway. Check out the new Scott Pilgrim movie, a queer comics panel, a Whedonite tidbit and (most importantly) our own Brandy Howard in an inexplicable chicken superhero costume!
Inspired by Sigourney Weaver’s bald head, we’ve managed to narrow down our picks for the Top 11 Sci-Fi Babes to the best of the best. These are the smartest, toughest, gun-totingest sexbombs around.
The HTC Droid Incredible is sure lucky it lives up to its name, because I think we can all admit it was a pretty dumb thing to call a phone. But hey, that’s water under the bridge. Because this phone is seriously amazing. Hear all about it from a recent dumbphone to smartphone convert, our very own Sarah.
New research indicates that video games relieve stress, making us less depressed and hostile. And all this time we’d been playing them because they made us sad and hateful. Hm. Also, Google debuted a feature that will help just about anyone make an app and how to teach yourself synesthesia in three easy steps. Well, maybe not three.
While you might be tired of hearing about the HTC EVO, I’m somehow not yet tired of writing about it. And it’s the only phone I have because no one sends me free shit and I’m a pauper. Since almost everything I’ve written about the phone has been glowing, here are some complaints. No phone is perfect, and while none of my complaints are a dealbreaker, these 6 things bug me.
The TedxOilSpill conference features a talk by notorious Twitter brand-hijacker, @BPGlobalPR, on the disaster in the Gulf. And how the little guy can piss people off in a big way — for the common good and stuff.
The iPhone 4 hits stores, and it’s ever, ever so shiny. But every rose has its thorns. Apple’s latest device has already suffered the slings and arrows of some serious signal problems, and it’s basically still Day 1. But don’t worry: Apple offers us a simple fix: just hold the phone different. No really, Steve Jobs wants to change how you hold your iPhone instead of admitting that he has a problem. Jobshole.
I’m still reeling, drunk on the freedom of Google’s Android OS. If you’re a gamer and you’ve got an Android device (or you’re considering one!), take heed of these 8 reasons to ditch the iPhone. Snesoid and Nesoid on the Android Market open up a whole world of retro-gaming, a world which I thoroughly explored this weekend for, er, research purposes. And because the Geekender is ostensibly for things I do on the weekend.
This project seems a little too ambitious, even for me, but I liked it too much to resist sharing it with you guys.
Apple introduces the iPhone 4, or should we say “re-introduces,” the iPhone 4. Meet the newest iPhone, its solid feature set and see just how shiny it is. But is shiny enough? Should it be? And oh yeah, Jane Lynch pops up to mock Apple and allude to a sex dungeon of some kind. Count me in.
Now that the HTC Evo is mine (all mine!), here are a few first impressions. So go on– live vicariously! Because I know what it feels like to obsessively watch unboxing videos of the Evo until you go blind with envy. I know just how that is.
Have you ever wanted to read comic books but found yourself a) overwhelmed, b) intimidated or c-g) five kinds of confused? We lay it all out for you, kind of like a railroad magnate would. But he’d be laying railroad track, and we’re layin’ knowledge and we’re a layin’ it about comic books. So check it out– get schooled about the comic book, the graphic novel, the comic strip and that wily beast the webcomic.
Here’s a few first impressions on Rockstar Games’ Western opus, Red Dead Redemption. Bucking broncos? Check. Six shooters? Check. Saloon shootouts? Check. So far, so good!
Who doesn’t love to kick ass? No one, that’s who! And what better way to do it than as a little green-clad elf? Your little green-clad elf costume/assault charges notwithstanding, here’s our guide to doing just that. Yes, it’s time for Kim’s fave Legend of Zelda boss fights!
The more I think about Microsoft’s newest Kin ad, the more sketched out I get: the video depicts a young woman, sponsored by Microsoft, heading out on a road trip to meet all of the sketchy weirdos she talks to online IN PERSON. And it’s fun, edgy and appealing, just like an Urban Outfitters catalog. So think about how creepy this vid is, then buy a bunch of great games that came out yesterday to feel better.
As our favorite tropical mindf*ck draws to an end, I take a look back at the (spoiler-strewn) highlights from six seasons of Lost’s emotionally resonant acid-tripping.
Pay what you can for a set of sweet indie games! Google changed ever-so slightly and now we’re all weeping and won’t leave our basements! And Stephen Hawking’s DIY time travel how-to.
I’m swooning for the HTC Evo 4G, but could Apple’s next iPhone change the game? Get your scorecards out- this is a veritable showdown between Sprint’s Evo 4G and the iPhone of the future (or the summer).
