Batman v. Superman Sneak Peek – All A Dream?


This past week, a new sneak peek was released for the upcoming superhero film Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice, and of course the Internet went wild with rumors and interpretations almost immediately. The sneak peek was actually followed quickly by a new full trailer, but it's the brief scene in the teaser that still has everybody talking. Basically, we're all trying to figure out if it represents a dream sequence or actual events in the upcoming film.

How to Overcome Loss With Only Your Fists, a Butler, and Billions of Dollars: The Bruce Wayne Story


Meet Bruce Wayne: industrialist, billionaire owner of Wayne Enterprises, philanthropist, Gotham’s favorite son, playboy, orphan. His success is a heartwarming example of American enterprise and ingenuity. It’s the stuff of folklore, really—a life we can all look to and feel inspired.

This is what I imagine most people picture when they think of Bruce Wayne. I mean, just look at how handsome and charming he is. He’s someone who overcomes a traumatic childhood and forgoes his own social advantages to fix the problems he sees in his own city. Surely, this character should be inspiring, right?

What would I tell my younger self about gaming today?


Recently, I am feeling pretty excited about the steps the gaming industry has made to transcend an all male demographic. This really shouldn’t come as any surprise, but there are still some people who are unable to understand why there is any reason for excitement at all. The attitude I most often encounter in open discussions about women in relation to gaming culture, as of late, is one of neutrality. More specifically, the notion that video game culture or nerd culture in and of itself is and always has been welcoming of women.

Tuesday Finds – My Halloween Costume Ideas


Halloween is just a few days away! Are any of you last minute costume buyers/makers? I know I am... It took me a while to decide on what I wanted to dress up as this year. I want to share through a list of ideas I had at the very beginning and what I decided to dress up as in the end. I didn't want to go buy anything that was too expensive so I decided to look for alternatives - I looked inside my closet. I already had a few things I could have easily dressed up as.  

Lydia of Beetlejuice

Beetlejuice! I loved it as a kid and I still it as an adult. Lydia is one of my favorite characters and I can see this as an easy costume. Not the red outfit version, but the version of her in very dark clothing with her camera. It could be pulled off if I can manage to mimic her hair and wear pale + dark make up. This was just an option though as I was watching Beetlejuice.
