My new Love/Hate Relationship with Dist::Zilla

Dist::Zilla is a great release tool, code generator, and it just plain takes the boring part of doing a release away from you.That having been said, it does, imo, horrible things to your source repository. “But, Caleb, it cleans up your source repository you can remove a lot of excess stuff you don’t really need to be storing there”. Well… I disagree, to the point that I’ve used every explicative in the book to express my displeasure. Read more →

Dawn of War: Soulstorm

To start I just got this game so I will be expanding this review throughout the next few days. First the Bad. The intro movie (to the game) feels more cartoony than the previous ones, I don’t like the style. I don’t feel that it is on par with Relic’s previous movies. This is a trivial complaint and perhaps merely artistic preference. There doesn’t seem to be a race intro movie like there was in Dark Crusade. Read more →

10,000 B.C

First, I enjoyed this movie. I’d give it a B grade as far as movies go. However, it can’t possibly survive it’s own hype. The CGI in the movie is awesome. The story is so, so. Historically it’s wildly inaccurate, but you should have known that from the trailer. I won’t be buying this one, nore probably watching it again. However, I think it is worth seeing at least once, and probably on the big screen just for the graphics. Read more →

The Eye (movie)

imdb entry I went to see this the other night. Because NCG was having problem’s with Cloverfield… and we were already there. I didn’t find it scary at all. A little creepy. The blurry vision and screaming death shadows were just annoying. I did think that it might be an interesting concept for a Mage Awakening in Mage the Awakening RPG. Not as is of course.– This work by Caleb Cushing is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3. Read more →

Jumper (movie)

IMDB entry) Saw this movie yesterday. It was Ok. It wasn’t great, it wasn’t horrible. I can’t really say anything, good about it. But I can’t say anything bad either. I enjoyed it, I won’t be buying it, or seeing it again though.– This work by Caleb Cushing is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License. Read more →
