Game of Thrones: The Lion and The Rose Review

game-of-thrones-title-cardWhen you come into a season of Game of Thrones, you know that it’s the ninth episode of the season that everything is building up to. That’s where something big happens. But what happens when the writers and producers change things up on you and make it the second, rather than the second-to-last episode that changes everything. We’re about to find out this season after The Lion and The Rose.

Goat Simulator Review: G.O.A.T.Y.

goat-simulator-headerIs a comedy game that’s openly considered to be a joke by its own developer and much of the gaming press something that’s a meta joke that also happens to be a game or just a joke that isn’t worth the time and money to buy and play it?

If you’ve read other reviews of Goat Simulator, that’s what they all come down to, whether the reviewer says so or not. Should a game that the developer says is a…

Wednesday Link-Off: The More Things Change

michea-crawford-marksspencer14-01I know that technically this is a short week but I feel like it’s gone long already. Well, the return of winter to Canada isn’t helping matters. I know we’re all about winter up here but even we can have enough after six months.

Anyway, it’s Wednesday so it’s time for the links. Let’s start with Canadian model Michea Crawford.

The Yanks feel that Russia hasn’t learned their lesson about…

IndyCar – Long Beach GP: Where Legends are Born

indycar-2014-long-beach-conway-victoryLong Beach is the most historic road course race in America. It’s the one that everyone wants to win. Even Formula One wants to take it back from IndyCar and they’re only interested in big money and big extravagance which is something that Long Beach doesn’t do to nearly the extent that F1′s newest races.

While Long Beach has a long history of making heroes out of its winners, sometimes, it’s the…

Formula One: 2014 Bahrain In-Season Test Recap

f1-2014-bahrain-in-season-test-rosberg-mercedesAs part of the changes to all of the technical regulations, the 2014 Formula One World Championship season included a rules change that allows four two-day in-season test sessions for teams to work on their cars and gather data about new parts and Pirelli tyres.

The first of these test sessions was in Bahrain following last weekend’s Bahrain Grand Prix. If you include the pre-season testing, that…

Sunday Link-Off: Harper Strikes Back

jessica-pare-esquire14-02It’s the beginning of another week which means that it’s time for us to give you another set of links. I’d like to think of the start of this post as Canada-centric while it finishes a more nationally agnostic. That doesn’t mean that there won’t be something for everyone in here.

But let’s start off with something Canadian. Since Mad Men is back on Sunday, here’s Jessica Pare.

Entertainment Link-Off: Choose Your Destiny

shailene-woodley-instyleIn theatres this weekend are two films that didn’t quite live up to the hype. Draft Day and Rio 2 are going to battle each other out in North America. Meanwhile over in Aussieland, Divergent is finally out! Think of it as Hunger Games lite, but it’s still quite entertaining. So once again, I’ll use this as an excuse to kick it all off with the film’s leading lady Shailene Woodley.

After the jump,…

Game of Thrones: Two Swords Review

game-of-thrones-headerGame of Thrones came back with an epic episode on Sunday night to kick off its fourth season and the second of two seasons based on George R. R. Martin’s A Storm of Swords. After the mind-blowing (for people who didn’t read the books) conclusion to last season, there were a lot of plot threads that needed resolving. That’ll take the whole season and has some new storylines added in for good…

The Best of the Ultimate Warrior

the-ultimate-warrior-wwe-hall-of-fameI was planning to do a best of the interweb post today but I thought that I would use this space to pay tribute to The Ultimate Warrior instead. I had a few favourite wrestlers growing up. I was a Hulkamaniac like everyone else. Being Canadian, Bret Hart was one of my favourites. Then there were the heels, Mr. Perfect and Ted DiBiase, who were just too good to hate (and/or feuding with Virgil who…

Wednesday Link-Off: Eat, Sleep, Break the Streak

natalie-dormer-gq14-02Well, if you were looking for something to watch on Sunday night, you probably did fairly well for yourself. Between Game of Thrones and WrestleMania 30, it was a pretty backed night of TV. While we don’t have any GoT links, there are WrestleMania ones today.

So let’s kickoff this post with Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer.

TV has changed a lot over the last 40-some years since All in the…
