TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Bible Adventures’ proved the need for separation of church and video games

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Bible Adventures’ proved the need for separation of church and video games

I respect all religions, but it’s no secret that religion really doesn’t mesh with a lot of other things in this world, and I’m here to tell you, genuinely, from the bottom of my heart, that this is especially true of the world of video games, with today’s subject on Turn to Channel 3 serving […]

INFINITE IMPROBABILITY: ‘Daredevil’ is the superhero TV series with nothing to fear

INFINITE IMPROBABILITY: ‘Daredevil’ is the superhero TV series with nothing to fear

A few weeks ago, I was going to write a column about how “The Flash” is currently the best superhero show on television, but I hesitated because “Daredevil” was set to premiere on Friday, April 10 on Netflix.

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: Take Domino’s advice and avoid ‘Yo! Noid’ on the NES

WILDLY FRUSTRATED: The good, the unfunded, and the Paul Blarts of the movie business

Their story doesn’t have […]

Play ‘Pac-Man’ in the streets of Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, or anywhere with Google Maps

Pac-Man has had countless games and reinterpretations since his debut in 1980. He quickly moved from the arcades to the comfort of our own homes and handheld devices, but he’s never quite been this close to home before.

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: Sega Genesis’ ‘Golden Axe’ is still worth wielding

Everyone has their favorite systems and favorite games they grew up with, while at the same time, there are those systems and games we never got into, and even today we’re still overly critical of them. As some readers may know, I didn’t grow up with a Sega Genesis, and despite the fact that I […]

INFINITE IMPROBABILITY: Dear superhero films, embrace the spandex – it worked for Deadpool

In the original “X-Men” film, Wolverine questions the uniforms they’ve donned to fight Magneto and the Brotherhood just before their final confrontation. In response, Cyclops quips, “What would you prefer? Yellow spandex?” Actually, yes. Yes, I would. That was 15 years ago, which seems like a lifetime ago now, and for some young fans, it […]

WILDLY FRUSTRATED: ‘Genderbusters,’ or ‘Boys and girls living together – mass hysteria!’

It has been a few months since the all-female “Ghostbusters” reboot was announced. There is a certain camp of people who have shit all over this announcement based on the “all-female” theme alone, but that initial shock has worn off. The pitchforks have been placed back in their toolsheds and torches have been extinguished… for […]
