My Top 10 Favorite X-Files Episodes

The Truth is Out There

While I had originally planned to do a review this week, a bit of news had changed that.  Just recently, Fox Media had confirmed rumors and speculation about a new X-Files series.  While Carter had both planned to make another movie after the lackluster 2008 film, “I Want to Believe”, there hadn’t been much news outside of fan speculation.  Fast Forward a couple years and the series was officially continued through the limited-series of comic books aptly named “Season 10”.  But even then, this was more so a gift to the fans rather than continuing the ongoing series.  That said, we have at least 6 new episodes of the television show to look forward to.  However, I’m not here to focus on the upcoming series so much as look back at the classic series.  Or rather, I’m here to look at ten of my favorite episodes!  Some are amazing, some have been panned by critics, and some are just wonderfully weird.  As you’d expect, there is probably an amount of overlap with what other fans have said.  But hey, there’s plenty of episodes worth remembering by a large group of people.  One more thing!  While I tried to avoid a lot of spoilers, there are still quite a few ahead, so take heed if you haven’t finished the series yet.  More after the jump.

My New Internet Home: 1 Year Later

It’s hard to believe, but it’s already been a year since I jumped over to WordPress.  While transferring everything over has taken more time than I expected, I’ll still celebrate in my anniversary none the less.  And to everyone seeing this on Tumblr, I haven’t completely quit the site; despite the fact I said I would quit upon joining WordPress.  As I’ve mentioned time and again, I’ll sometimes log in to promote posts, answer questions, and interact with followers.

Anyway, see everyone tomorrow for more entries in the weird stuff I come across.

The Doc Speaks: Was I too harsh on Fallout 3?

Bye, Megaton

For those who remember, a couple of my reviews have had somewhat subtle digs at Fallout 3, Bethesda’s reboot of the Fallout series.  This game helped to bring the series back into public eye with a different setting, an advancement of the timeline, and new mechanics to play with.  Instead of continuing plotlines taking place on the west coast United States, focus was shifted towards developments on the east coast, particularly the “Capital Wasteland.” But, as I’ve mentioned, I have been rather critical about parts of it. And for a while, I even hated the game. Admittedly, it’s on the bottom of my Fallout list (next to those spin-off games shoved into the strictly non-canon section.) However, after returning the the game, I can’t say I really hate it anymore. Of course, there’s much more to it than just that.

Cult Game Review(s): Five Nights At Freddy’s Series.

FNaF

Harmless Fun For the Whole Family!

I can be said, it’s rare that I like to tackle things that are widely popular on this blog.  For one, a tidal wave of fandom backlash would wash me away into the internet depths.  For two, I’ve always felt that less popular content deserves some spotlight too, in hopes of elevating it to the more popular stuff already out there.  All that said and done, I’ve been interested in examining the Five Nights at Freddy’s series for a while, for better or worse!  Despite not being exceptionally invested toward the surprise franchise, it’s been an oddity I’ve none the less had an eye on to a degree.  Let’s start our night shift out of hell and spend Five Nights at Freddy’s!

NOTE:  Pardon the lateness.  I’ve been dealing with migraines and minor fever over the past couple days.

Cult Game Review – Papers Please

PAPERS PLEASE

Back in 2013, this sleeper hit was met with high praise and tons of examination from critics and games alike.  In Paper’s Please, you are a citizen chosen from a work lottery to maintain a border patrol agency for Arstotzka, a strict Communist country.  While on the job, you must choose between your own morality and doing your job as your state expects.  Will you fell pity and show mercy to potential citizens or will you maximize your own benefits while potentially leading the suffering of many others?  No matter the choice, you always address your next potential citizen with the same phrase, “Papers Please!”
