Opinionated: Filip-in Hell – Why the Miucin Debacle Makes IGN Necessary

by Rupert Harvey

Filip Miucin had an inauspicious start at IGN ten months ago. Plucked from relative obscurity, he was thrust into arguably the world’s foremost Nintendo podcast, Nintendo Voice Chat. Its hugely popular former presenter, Jose Otero, just finished his tenure by nailing a job at Nintendo itself. Miucin was visibly and verbally nervous for several weeks […]

by Nathan Favel

The following is an open letter to any-one and every-one: Dear People (…that includes all y’all, too) A veteran comedian and a current cast member of Saturday Night Live, Leslie Jones has always been in the peripheral of her profession, which often happens to any-one who is not a white man. Jones has been one […]

Opinionated: Octopath – Travelers’ Tales

by Rupert Harvey

Since its release a fortnight ago, one of the most consistent criticisms of Square Enix’s JRPG Octopath Traveler has been that its eight stories are almost entirely separate and don’t converge in any “meaningful” way. Having played around 40 hours of the game, I began to wonder why so many might feel this particular frustration. […]

Opinionated: Lethal Injection

by Nathan Favel

Sex crimes of any kind have existed in wrestling over the years, just as in any walk of life. From Roddy Piper’s story about a male wrestler who wanted him to grab his penis in public to Mel Philips orally raping an eleven year old at a WWE event, we’ve had these accusations before. What […]

Opinionated: Guardians of the Guy Who Hired Vin Diesel to Play a Talking Tree

by Nathan Favel

A few days ago, James Gunn, the director of the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, was fired from directing the third film in the series when a man named Mike Cernovich found old tweets of Gunn’s from around the 2008-2011 range that made risqué jokes about rape and pedophilia. One such joke was, to paraphrase, […]

Opinionated: A Shot in the Arm… Curt Hawkins, WWE Champion?

by Nathan Favel

I’ve had a bit of a thought in the past week or so, thanks in part to some-thing Brian Pillman Jr. proposed in an interview. Pillman Jr.’s idea was that Curt Hawkins, who has had a losing streak going which may very well become a legend in its own right, should break that streak by beating… […]

Opinionated: TNA Has All the Impact It Needs

by Nathan Favel

Total Non-Stop Action Wrestling was originally named Tits and Ass Wrestling. You might already know that but, for those of you who are still in the dark, TNA Wrestling was never meant to be any-thing more than a fun lark for Jeff Jarrett and Vince Russo. Based on pushing the WWE’s Attitude Era to its […]

Opinionated: Something… Something… Star Wars

by Nathan Favel

Star Wars is the ultimate introduction to the imagination, or, at least, that’s the way I feel about it. George Lucas shot for the stars, almost literally in fact, (if you consider blue screen to be reality), when he created this thick, simmering brew of knights, magic, pilots, pirates, gangsters, aliens and robots set in […]
