A Sturgeon Is Not Just A Fish A Sturgeon Is Not Just A Fish

[The Introductory Post Bibble-Babble: Hi! People have been expressing an interest in getting thursdaytales up and running again, and that is definitely (hopefully) happening! Entirely separately and coincidentally, Gaudy Mouse and I (mostly Gaudy) were playing around on Twitter with the idea of a series of posts…

The future is scary and, according to these 15 dystopias in video games, it’s going to get a lot stranger before things get better.

We Need To Talk About io9 We Need To Talk About io9

I, like many of the others around these parts, have been a member of the io9 community for many years now (I myself started back in the heady days of Spring 2011) and one of the things I always loved about the place was not only the friendly community atmosphere but also the willingness to talk about all kinds of…

The Top 11
Femme Fatales In Fiction The Top 11 Femme Fatales In Fiction

Femme Fatales have been in our fiction for decades and many have become pop culture icons for differing reasons. From the legendary roles of Lauren Bacall and Ava Gardner of the 40s, to more modern incarnations that appear in all forms of media. As such, let’s celebrate the best of the best.

Andrew Lincoln on The Walking Dead Finale - 'Sorry You Just Don't Get It' Andrew Lincoln on The Walking Dead Finale - 'Sorry You Just Don't Get It'

Andrew Lincoln, the actor who plays the lead character Rick Grimes on the show, has decided to join in on damage control over the anger towards the finale of the recent series of The Walking Dead where the episode ended with a shock cliffhanger regarding who was killed by Negan, forcing fans to wait six months for it…

Here Comes the Night: Thoughts on Batman v Superman Here Comes the Night: Thoughts on Batman v Superman

So I finally saw Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice today and I’ll like to put down my thoughts before reading any reviews. I mean, I’ve read the titles of reviews, which means I already went into the movie expecting something, but before I read other people’s opinions, I want to write down my own.

The Walking Dead: Killing In The Name Of The Walking Dead: Killing In The Name Of

The Walking Dead is known for its violence. It thrives on violence. As a comically disfigured mercenary would say, “life is an endless series of train-wrecks with only brief, commercial-like breaks of happiness.” Unfortunately for Rick and the gang, Hyundai paid a pretty penny to present this to us with limited…

The Best Maps Help You Get Lost

Loads of video games (and movies, and TV shows, and comics, and books) have maps in them. You might think they’re there to stop you getting lost, but no. They’ve got a much more important role than that.

Three Things Superheroes Should Learn from Netflix's Daredevil Three Things Superheroes Should Learn from Netflix's Daredevil

If you have Netflix and love comics (check and double-check), you probably don't need me to tell you how great Daredevil is because you're already watching it.

GTA IV's Story Is Better Than GTA V's GTA IV's Story Is Better Than GTA V's

The Grand Theft Auto series is the ultimate commentary on modern America. Greed, lust, money, and crime are wrapped together into a Las Vegas buffet of a game that is entertaining, insightful, and overwhelming in its sheer variety.

Some Reasons You Should Watch Danger Man Some Reasons You Should Watch Danger Man

In celebration of Spy Week over at io9, I'd like to engage in one of my favorite pastimes: trying to convince people to watch something I love. It should be easy in this case, as I have a wealth of reasons why Danger Man (known in the States as Secret Agent Man, yes, as in the song), starring Patrick McGoohan, is…

A Visual Novel Fan's Opinion on Eroge A Visual Novel Fan's Opinion on Eroge

It seems like that the west has rediscovered the Visual Novel Genre, commonly referred to as Dating Sim. Due to this, there is a lot of stereotyping and confusion about the genre (including what to even call them). Recently on Kotaku, Patrica Hernandez wrote an article about eroge, which tried to explain what is…

A Look Back: Where Do The First 10 Marvel Films Rate Up To Each Other? A Look Back: Where Do The First 10 Marvel Films Rate Up To Each Other?

2015 sees the end of Phase 2 of Marvel's grand cinematic universe scheme and so far it seems to be working well for them, with many financial successes. With the release of the (rather weak honestly) Ant-Man trailer and the up coming release of Age of Ultron, lets take a look back at the previous 10 Marvel films and…

The Blessing and Curse of Nostalgia The Blessing and Curse of Nostalgia

I ruffled a few feathers earlier this week with a post on how Doctor Who needs to stop mining its past so much - and there were a lot of great counter arguments. One repeated point of defense was that we all love the warmth of nostalgia, and it interested me. Can our Nostalgia be too much of a good thing sometimes?

Open Forum - your most "controversial" geek opinions? Open Forum - your most "controversial" geek opinions?

Opinions are like assh... umm, lovely brains. We all have them, but often we can't control them and they go against what we might actually want them to do.

What About the Dungeon Masters?

The release of the new 5th Edition of Dungeons & Dragons has been accompanied by a lot of positive buzz about the product, but under the surface another sound is starting to be heard. This is the sound of Dungeon Masters wondering when it's going to be their turn to benefit from the new edition.

I'm sick of saving the world: The case for smaller-scale stories I'm sick of saving the world: The case for smaller-scale stories

Sometimes it feels like the genre tales I love are in a storytelling arms race to constantly raise the stakes. We can't even just have the world under threat - it's the solar system, it's the galaxy, hell, throw in the whole damn universe while you're at it. What's happened to the small-scale hero in big entertainment?

When will the Marvel Cinematic Universe become more diverse? When will the Marvel Cinematic Universe become more diverse?

Marvel has been making waves this last week with the revelation of a new Female Thor, as well as the mantle of Captain America being taken up by black superhero Sam Wilson. It's great to see increased diversity from them - but when will we see this sort of thing in Marvel Movies?

Thoughts while driving cross-country...

So I had to go home to South Carolina the week before last to help my Mom start getting the house in order to sell after her husband passed away, and after scouring the barn, I stumbled across enough of my old books that I decided to drive back with it in the trunk instead of flying or having it shipped to me.

That Wizard Came From The Moon: A defence of Peter Dinklage in Destiny That Wizard Came From The Moon: A defence of Peter Dinklage in Destiny

You might have heard a few rumblings on the internet during Destiny's Alpha weekend recently that Peter Dinklage's performance in the game is... well, not exactly Tyrion Lannister. But, having spent some time playing the game myself, I think Dinklage is shaping up to be a cool companion on your Guardian's adventure.
