Vortex Effect Returns to

April 24, 2014 // 2 Comments

Back in January, I announced that we would be moving away from and would be venturing off on our own to the world of self-hosting.

February 17, 2014 // 0 Comments

We’re known mostly for reviewing games and movies, and maybe some wrestling content, but the site actually covers a lot of ground. Occasionally, I like to review stuff outside of our usual focus.

Attempting to stick to a deadline like this reminded me of why I quit writing wrestling columns for Lords of Pain (well one of the reasons): When the hobby becomes a chore and ceases to be fun, it’s time [...]

May 1, 2011 // 1 Comment
