indexHalloween was weeks ago, but I’m always in the mood for monsters! So is Paizo, the Seattle game company that publishes the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. Pathfinder is probably one of the best fantasy role-playing system on the market right now, partially due to its near-infinite potential for customization. This can be credited to the game’s expansive line of consistently high quality sourcebooks, the newest of which is Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Bestiary 4.

Review: Star Wars Black Series Six-Inch Figures


star-wars-6-inch-hasbro-black-series-wave-1-sandtrooper-368-pI went on a little bit of an action figure spree this weekend and bought (among other things) two of the new Star Wars “Black” series action figures. They’ve got two lines, one 3.75″ and the other 6″. I went for the big guys, specifically the Sandtrooper and R2-D2, both part of the first wave of figures.I was momentarily possessed with the impulse that I should keep these guys in their boxes, but what fun is that? After deciding that I’d probably never sell them anyway, I broke my new buddies out of their cardboard and plastic prisons.

Thirty years later, people are still asking the comedian to do “the voice”, even as he continues to build a prestigious career as a director of independent films.

‘World War Z’ is the Zombie Epic You’ve Been Waiting For


World_War_Z_posterUntil this week you could have counted me among the many who had written off World War Z as the probable bomb of the decade. There were the signs of a troubled production: Reports of rewrites and reshoots trickling through to the press, and rumors that star Brad Pitt was dissatisfied with the film even as it was being completed. Fans of the book were grumbling that its structure had been abandoned completely, and response to early footage of twitching, running zombies had not been well-received by some. Even as the initial batch of mostly positive reviews rolled in I still had my doubts.
