Around the Web – 10/19/14

What it is Hulklings! Remember last week when I was all like I’m going to see these two movies and only one of them released near me? Same thing this. I was planning on seeing Fury and Birdman, only every movie site neglected to mention that Birdman was releasing on 4 screens. Maybe I’ll catch it later. Anywho, this week I’ve got a review of Fury, a comic book history post of the biggest death in comics since Superman, another SoA season review, and another infamous top 5 list. But enough about me, what about everyone else?

WHAT’S YOUR TAG? – Facebook / Twitter

With so much gaming news coming out daily, it’s easy to miss most of it. What’s Your Tag? has your back. From great reviews to all manner of gaming news, small and big, WYT? is smart and fun. Plus, their weekly comic strip is hilarious.

Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor – Just when I thought the guys and WYT? were all but dead, they prove me wrong. I haven’t heard anything negative about this game yet. Steam sale don’t fail me now!

SNES A DAY – Twitter / Tumblr

The SNES is one of, if not the best home consoles. Cory over at SNES a Day has made it his goal to play every game in the catalog in the order they released. The write-ups are fantastic, and honestly, I’m a little jealous I didn’t think of this first.

Day 134: The Magical Quest Starring Mickey Mouse – Looking at the other posts this week, there was a lot of garbage on the SNES. Magical Quest however, is most certainly not.

Random Thoughts of 210Darryl

Books is the one category I neglect the most, but not for lack of trying. Thankfully, 210Darryl has my back with reviews of books that pique my interest, or ones to avoid. It’s not all books though, as 210Darryl definitely lives up to the random part of his title page.

Negative Book Reviews of No Good Reason – I have this problem with reviews in general. Yes, something are that bad, but do you really need to put that much energy into expressing why?

THE TWO HEADED NERD COMICAST WITH JOE AND MATT – Facebook / Twitter 

THN is one of my favorite podcasts. I can’t wait for the new episode each week. Hosts Matt Baum and Joe Patrick have a great dynamic, as well as produce a quality product. I know how much work goes into making a podcast, and seeing how tightly scripted their show is, along with all the background music, puts me in awe. Even if your interest in comics is passing, give them a listen, you’ll be entertained. Full disclosure, I write the Saturday Morning Cartoon series for THN.

Flash

Answer of the Week 70: The Flash – I am loving this show! I can’t wait to hear what everyone else has to say!

THE NOSTALGIA BLOG – Facebook / Twitter

Who doesn’t love a good flashback? The Nostalgia Blog has everything you’d want from “hey, remember this?” to news of comeback from anything, 80s, 90s, or anything retro. Growing up across both decades, I constantly look forward to posts on this site.

Game Collection eBay Sale – Just, wow. There are no words.

Stay-At-Home Gaming – Facebook Twitter

It takes talent to add a different slant to video game writing, in addition to making it entertaining. Stay-At-Home Gaming has that in spades. While their reviews are solid, covering a wide variety of games old and new, I look forward to the random Gaming Fun posts. Everything at SAH is creative, and most importantly, fun.

NY Times Take on Gender Inequality in Games – First off, huge congrats to SAHG’s Andrew Shortall new positions as new editor at GambitCon! As for this post, I hope the rampant sexism that’s over taken video games rights itself soon. The way we treat other humans is deplorable.
