A breathtaking near-future thriller. The new novel by the NY Times bestselling author whose books have been downloaded over a million times.When DARPA’s billion-dollar program to create Artificial Superintelligence is sabotaged, US operative Cameron Carr is tasked with finding the culprit….

A 2D Side Scrolling Platforming developed by Press Play / Flashbulb games for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS4 and PC. I’ll never forgive them for giving it a colon and not an “and” in the title.

The Land of Ooo is underwater, and it’s up to Finn and Jake to find out why. A pleasurable RPG-lite game with minimal story and some pretty bad optimization for the X-box. It was a fun quick play that overstayed it’s welcome by about an hour, and sometimes characters would freeze completely when loading areas, and at one point I lost the entire center channel of sound. Despite it’s rough edges though I enjoyed my time with the game. Buy On Amazon!

Directed by John Lee Hancock. With Kevin Costner, Woody Harrelson, Kathy Bates, John Carroll Lynch. A pair of Texas Rangers come out of retirement to catch the infamous outlaws Bonnie and Clyde. Beautiful looking movie with a soundtrack that pulled me right into it, both Costner and Harrelson are at their prime here, showing why they’re among the best actors out there. It’s ultimately a sad story about a pretty broken period of American history, but the movie is great. Buy On Amazon!
