‘Brian Regan On the Rocks’ Review: Hilarious Standup Break from Smug Politics

As far as I know, Brian Regan is the only standup comedian who can attract thousands of fans to his live shows even though he’s not a household name and has never starred in a sitcom. This large and faithful following comes from three decades on the road, countless television appearances, a seemingly endless supply of new material, and the fact that you know you’re going to laugh hard. Real hard.

Stepping into the world of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has a certain gravity. For those who have been following the decorated franchise since its NES inception, I can imagine a sense of homecoming. Still, this is not the MGS title of prior generations.

‘Sublevel Zero’ Review: A Rogue-Like ‘Descent’ into Classic Fun

Before I get too far into reviews where I’m “fanboy compromised,” I like to disclose that fact — I enjoyed 1995’s Descent a lot. So when I saw that Sigtrap Games had released a rogue-like Descent-like mine shooter titled Sublevel Zero, I put on my helmet, strapped into the cockpit, and dove in. I was not disappointed.

‘Mad Max’ Review: Running on Empty

Developed by Avalanche Studios, creators of the Just Cause series, and published by Warner Bros Interactive, Mad Max is an open world, third person-action game set in the iconic post apocalyptic wasteland of the Mad Max film franchise, in which insanity and savagery run free and jerry-rigged cars rule the landscape as the remnants of mankind struggle to survive.
