Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark Review: Zero Sum

To say I enjoyed High Moon’s take on the Transformer’s franchise would be an understatement. Having played Fall of Cybertron in preparation for this game, my expectations were heightened by just how much I truly enjoyed that game. It looked good, played well, and told and interesting story. Edge of Reality’s Rise of the Dark Spark, on the other hand, tries to do everything Fall did, but does it much worse from every angle.

Real Steel: Review

Rocky with Robots… and an annoying little kid.

It will take a lot of courage to see this movie.

The people I’ve talked to about Real Steel constantly say it is Rock’em Sock’em Robots without the Mattel® license and in a way they are correct. Robot on robot action is the main draw in this boxing film, starring Hugh Jackman and directed by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum). Real Steel is based on a short story and Twilight Zone episode by Richard Matheson; although you probably wouldn’t think it from how heavily they’ve modified it. Real Steel attempts to be the Rocky movie no one really needed, only with a robot twist because I guess Transformers are pretty big right now. Real Steel: Rocky with robots.
