"WandaVision" Review

  It's crazy to think 2020 was the first full year where the Marvel Cinematic Universe didn't release a single piece of content since 2009. With the COVID-19 pandemic closing down theatre chains across the globe, and Marvel's production pipelines being halted mid production, the start of the MCU's Phase 4 didn't go according to the original plan. If things had gone differently, by now we would have already seen movies like "Black Widow" and "The Eternals", and we would have gotten the MCU's first TV show under the Marvel Studios umbrella, "Falcon and the Winter Soldier" with the fourth show in the schedule, "WandaVision" next in the pipeline. As we all know, the order of things ended up being way different. And to Marvel's credit, "WandaVision" works surprisingly well as the opening salvo for their new phase of content. If there is anything you can takeaway immediately from "WandaVision", is that th

2020 Year-In Review: Top 10 Games of 2020

Thankfully, Capcom was able to slightly satiate my hunger by releasing a remake of what I've learned is one of the more polarizing entries in the series, "Resident Evil 3". I'll be upfront and say this remake doesn't reach the highs from "Resident Evil 2", and in some ways it is a step backwards by being a game more focused on the action than the tension filled moments of the previous game. Despite this, the le

Best Games of 2020 - Honorable Mentions

2020. Where to even begin with this year. Coming into 2020, it was hard not to feel exuberant excitement. For all intents and purposes, we were in the endgame of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One generation that started all the way back in the ancient times of 2013. A new generation of consoles was on the horizon. The last big hurrahs of these systems were getting ready to ship. For many gamers out there, these are the most exciting of times. Then COVID-19 happened.  No matter which way to slice it, the COVID-19 pandemic that shrouded the entire world for the entirety of the year cast an unflattering pall over what should have been the victory lap of this past console generation. For a virus that ravaged and continues to ravage many different corners of the world, leaving lots of dead in its wake and hitting all sorts of working industries and economies hard, focusing on something relatively "unimportant" as videogames would seem like something a little irresponsible when lookin
