Book Review: Silent Hill 2, by Mike Drucker

Boss Fight Books’ latest, Silent Hill 2, officially releases on January 26th. But since I got in on the kickstarter, I got my copy early, so now I can be ahead of the curve, for once! And I even managed to sit down and get this review written, to boot! Fancy that. So yeah, if …

Book Review: Resident Evil, by Philip J Reed

Oh dang, it’s October already? As again, I’ve been reading– but not as much as I’d like. A bit ironic, given I’m home all the time, but I guess there are just a lot of other distractions available, y’know? Still! In at least a vague nod to the season, I figured I needed to read …

Book Review: Matt Margini’s Red Dead Redemption

Oh hey, Boss Fight Books is back! This ‘season’ of Boss Fight Books is looking to be a fun one. Previous runs have switched between interesting obscurities like Soft and Cuddly and pop culture phenomena like NBA Jam. However, this time around, Boss Fight Books is sticking to big franchises: Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Zelda, …

Book Review: NBA Jam by Reyan Ali

“He’s on fire!” Either you know exactly what that’s a reference to, or you’re gonna call 911. The latest from Boss Fight Books, NBA Jam centers on, well, NBA Jam. First hitting arcades in 1993, the basketball game was soon ported to pretty much every console of the time. It’s kind of a cliche to …

Book Review: Knights of the Old Republic, by Alex Kane.

So how ’bout that new Star Wars trailer? Personally, I’m just a bit leery. As on the one hand, I’m all for Rey and Co. having cool space adventures. On the other … I’m not sure if I have enough confidence in J.J. Abrams to put together a satisfying ending. But! That’s not what this …

Book Review: Ready Player One, by Ernest Cline

Whenever I read something outside my wheelhouse, like a romance novel, or a YA novel, or a YA romance or whatever, I try to step back and remember that some books (or heck, some whole genres) are Not For Me. As a result, it can be a fine line to walk between “this book sucks …

Book Review: Steve Perry’s Shadows of the Empire

I’m probably showing my age here, but I remember a time when every Wal-Mart didn’t have a whole “Star Wars” aisle. It was a simpler, nobler era, when you only had three Star Wars movies to keep track of (for better or worse). And so, if you wanted to see more adventures of Luke Skywalker …

The Twelve Days of Crimmus, Part 9: The Super Mario Bros Super Show!

Lest I be accused (rightfully) of pro-Nintendo bias, let’s look at a Christmas special from the other side of the Console Wars! The Super Mario Bros. Super Show was something I was tangentially aware of when it was first on the air in the late 80’s and early 90’s, but I never really made it …

The Twelve Days of Crimmus, Part 8: Sonic’s Christmas Blast

I chose my side during the great Console Wars of the 90’s, and I still maintain the SNES is the greatest console ever created. This said, my friend had a Genesis, and I will admit I spent many an hour playing it over at his place (even if he made me play always play Tails, …
