I Am Street Fighter

Of all the video game genres, fighting is the one I tend to steer clear of, but I’m still fascinated by the culture that surrounds fighting games – EVO and the like – and this is a fantastic portrayal of the community that exists around the Street Fighter franchise (and fighting games in general). I […]

Do the Right Thing

Still feeling a lot of emotions from watching this. Thirty years on, and this film still feels just as vital as it did back then. I loved the energy of Spike Lee’s early films, and it’s something I don’t really feel anymore from his recent output — I loved BlacKkKlansman, it’s a very well made […]

Recent TV (April 2019)

In recent years, the majority of my TV watching has been of the streaming variety, mostly binged from Netflix. I did notice that I’m watching a few series on a weekly basis this month, and here they are. Doom Patrol. I thought the Titans series was pretty good, and my favorite episode from its first […]

Who Am I?

At work I produce a weekly newsletter for our team (we’re over 300, with the majority in Montreal, but with a few satellite groupings around the world) that’s meant to be a fun, social update on what’s going on within the team. I do it because I like the exercise of producing it each week […]

They Live

I kicked off my 1988 movie marathon with this, and I’m glad I did. I really enjoy re-watching all these John Carpenter movies — I was a pretty big fan of his movies after all — and this one is another enjoyable visit. Yes, that 10-minute fight scene (between the two buddies) is still as […]

Game Boy 009 – GameStruck4

“Game Boy” is a weekly column in which I write about being a game developer working in Montreal. You’ll find them all under this category, and it starts here. After keeping my weekly rhythm constant for the first eight editions, it’s now been over a month since the last one, which was never my intention. It started […]

Rainbow Six Siege

I joked recently that I was Clancy’s bitch, and it really does feel like that. So yes, on top of recently revisiting Ghost Recon Wildlands, and then currently playing The Division, I’ve also started getting into Rainbow Six Siege. My history with the Rainbow games is that I was a huge fan of the two […]

Yakuza Kiwami

I love this game so damn much. After playing through Yakuza 0 (which I adored), I told myself I’d take a little break before starting Kiwami (a remaster of the first Yakuza game), but I just couldn’t wait and dived in the following week. I’ve played 7-8 hours so far I think — took a […]

Atomic Blonde

This movie is so ridiculously my jam that it’s, well, ridiculous. I already had high hopes for it after hearing good stuff when it was released in theaters and loving the trailer, and my expectations were surpassed. I got all the brilliant action I was expecting — including that truly brilliant chaotic/messy fight scene in […]
