Editor’s note – This post refers to the long defunct website “London Topic”, which was a hyper local news site, pitched on the TV Show Dragon’s Den. The site has been out of commission since mid 2011. This site ranks high on a search for “London Topic”, because it’s one of the few articles written… Continue reading An Open Letter to London Topic
I’ll be doing some “Best of” lists over the holidays as I do every year when I look back on the year that was, best comic, best website, best gadget, and best movie are still to come, but this one is an absolute no-brainer. The best game for 2008 in my opinion totally ran away… Continue reading The best game of 2008
The MPAA is continuing to blame Canada for its piracy woes. This despite the fact that Hollywood had a pretty boffo year with movie ticket sales on par with last year’s.

I picked up a PS3 a few weeks ago, and I’ve been playing quite a bit of PS3 since then, but I recently installed the New Xbox Experience on my 360, and I have to say that…ummm, wow. The PS3 is a beautiful piece of hardware, but the 360 is a much better experience overall.
Almost a year ago Ryan and I built the Behemoth. It’s fully assembled (except for the darned doors which I just can’t seem to manage to build), so last weekend I decided to build a unit for Kaylin. It’s not nearly as big, just one 24′ wide by 8′ tall unit. This one’s built with… Continue reading I shall call it mini-behemoth
If you’re reading this post, then you’re reading it on Radical Hive’s new host… I’ve moved Radical Hive over to DreamHost where I am hosting a lot of other sites, and hope to one day move All New Comics over to as well. This new host is much faster, and I’m now trying out WordPress… Continue reading New host
I don’t know when it happened exactly, but at some point in the last 5 years, I stopped being a huge movie nut, and transferred some of that love over to video games. I used to read Premiere magazine, and Entertainment Weekly. I would surf Film Threat, and Cinematical, Rotten Tomatoes was a weekly pilgramige,… Continue reading How did games become my new movies?
