Comments Off on “Can we have a do-over?!” Says Microsoft.

Today is the day where Microsoft asks the world for a do-over. Let’s get this straight, this is not a patch! This a complete system revamp! Sluggish sales, sloppy interface, and a dwindling list of exclusive titles has led up to the newest update for Xbox One. A very large patch, coming in a 1.2 GB! Xbox interviews all point to one thing, which is that this is the operating system they wanted to do from the start, but failed to do so. Many of us remember the rantings from Microsoft at E3 years ago. When gamers were promised these things from the start, and instead we received a Beta system. Well today is your day Microsoft fans. Included in the 1.2 GB complete system revamp is the new interface that is said to be much “snappier and responsive” for gamers. You also will have your first few titles of the […]

So, how did it go…you tell me: Noah is still trying to piece everything together which leads him to the hospital where he’s not greeted very warmly.

After taking a look at the security footage, Noah came to the realization that Hiro Nakamura was with him and may have some answers to his questions.

Comments Off on Sci Fi Review: Heroes Reborn Episode 1&2: Brave New World & Odessa

After five years of abandoning the faithful viewers with a promising cliffhanger, the critically acclaimed science fiction series, Heroes, makes it glorious comeback in a much needed spinoff, Heroes Reborn. Heroes Reborn is described as a 13-episode “event miniseries’ that picks up a year after the events of a terrorist attack in Odessa, Texas during the Odessa Peace Summit, a peaceful gathering between humans and evolved humans, now called Evos. And, if that wasn’t bad enough, this tragic event became the catalyst for the numerous events that shapes the stories of this new cast. It’s safe to say, the writers are getting back to their roots with this series. So, let’s dive right in: The two-part episode starts off with the death of a former Hero, Claire Bennet dubbed “The Cheerleader”, which was baffling to me since her power made it nearly impossible for her to die. As you can imagine, this put a […]
