Tabletop Tuesday: ‘One Night Ultimate Werewolf’


Here’s a simple game that I was introduced to over the weekend, immediately went out and bought and played dozens of times since.

Why Every New ‘Terminator’ Movie Is Failing


So we got around to watching Terminator: Genisys and…well…it was not a good movie. It recycles chunks of the old films and the plot is a confused mess, with 90% of it being exposition.

8 Reasons Professor Xavier is a Goddamn Psychopath
