    This is it! The moment you've been waiting for. Nay, the moment you've been demanding! It is time for my review of Battle: Los Angeles. And we all know that when it comes to cinematic sci-fi, my review is the only one that counts.

    Let's cut to the chase. As a movie, Battle: Los Angeles is....

    IS....

    Hold on a second.

    Did I ever tell you that XCOM is one of my favorite games of all time? Yeah, it is. I *loved* that game. XCOM, or for you Brits, UFO: Enemy Unknown, was the first

    [Hurray! Back to Chess! ]

    Things are coming up Chess, and in a big way. Chess is clearly experiencing a second golden era, largely due to the arrival of the affordable PC and internet. Contrary to the warnings of certain pundits who forecasted that Chess would soon be “played out” due to extensive computer analysis and information sharing via the internet, Chess has actually become the stronger for it, with new and ever more daring lines of play being explored in countless online games and over the board tournaments.

  5. History on the Telly

    Hey everyone, this started out as a rant and kind of turned into something else as I continued writting this frustration out.
