What if A&E didn’t suspend Phil Robertson

I have talked before about why A&E was right to suspend Robertson, the Duck Dynasty patriarch who made comments about the homosexual and race communities. Ever since then, social media and newsrooms alike have been buzzing with whether or not he should have been removed from the show and where the show will go from here. But what would have happened if A&E didn’t suspend Robertson? How would the reaction be different?

When news first broke of this entire situation, the news was of the suspension – not Robertson’s interview comments directly. In fact, the interview itself never made major headlines. Not till A&E reacted to it, that is. If you think about what could have happened if the interview had been given time to come to national attention, you will begin to see why A&E did act as they did and why they were only protecting their own business interests.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty Review

We are told, when we’re young, that all we have to do is dream big, and if we work hard and persevere, we can truly be anything we want. Of course, that’s all crap, the kind of illegitimate lip service people pay to children (and teens) to keep them from feeling the eventual reality of defeat. Sure, some of us get what we want, earning enough and applying it appropriately so that something resembling the above-stated promise is the result. But for most of us, the regular life of Walter Mitty is where we’ll be mired: dead-end job, no real relationships, synced to our laptop with endless hours spent balancing checkbooks and organizing our ordinariness. Perhaps this is why the hero of Ben Stiller’s Generation Y Gospel spends so much time in fantasy. Without it, what would be the point of living?

Battlefield 4 Review

Battlefield 4 drops players into a sandbox and unhooks all tethers, loosing scores of soldiers to squad up and take down the opposition however they choose. The series’ trademark, free-form multiplayer is reinforced with some smart albeit incremental upgrades, giving players even more incentive to work together. That in itself isn’t terribly surprising; multiplayer has always been Battlefield’s bread and butter.

What is surprising is that developer DICE has crafted a competent campaign to go along with it. Continue reading Battlefield 4 Review

Batman Arkham Origins Review

Formats: Playstation 3 (version tested), Xbox 360, PC, Wii U

Developer: Warner Bros. Games Montreal, Splash Damage

Publisher: Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment

Age rating: PEGI 16

Released: Out now

I’m not a big fan of prequels. It takes a lot of effort to keep them interesting. After all, you know what comes next, there’s very little that can surprise, and all too often it simply feels like a case of extending a series following a major plot revelation. If you’ve played Arkham City, then it’s pretty easy to see why this concern could apply to Origins. And in some ways, it’s a fair one. In other ways, however, Origins is a narratively excellent addition to the Arkham canon, and one which fleshes out some of the characters exceptionally well.
