Movie Friday Review - Iron Man 3
So you’re wondering how Marvel will come back after the smash success of The Avenger’s movie of last year. Their response: Iron Man 3. I had a chance to watch the newest iteration to the Marvel Cinematic Experience last Wednesday and I’d like to offer up my brief review of the film.

Sunday Afternoon Time Waster - Interactive Music...
Banner image courtesy Gizmodo This week’s Time Waster is a little different than usual. It is an interactive music video by the band Light Light. What happens is the music video records your mouse movements and then saves them to the video. Not quite a game and not quite a movie, Light Light has done something quite unique in the social space by gathering everyone on the internets to...
"What is it Wednesday?" - April 24, 2013
This week’s “What is it Wednesday?” is a little tricky. It does have to do with video games but it’s not something a lot of people have seen before. As a hint I’ll say that I recieved it 2 years ago today. So take a stab at guessing the object in the pic and once you have… Check your answer here! P.S.

BrNN Game Review - Tomb Raider (Xbox 360 & PS3)
Does the new Tomb Raider game bring the series back to life or does this new entry fall flat into a pit of spikes? Watch the review to find out!
Sunday Afternoon Time Waster - Patton Oswalt's...
I’m slowly gaining more respect for Patton Oswalt as an actor nerd. This filibuster was brought to you by Parks and Recs, a show that I’ve never watched, but from my understanding they asked Patton to fill up time with a made up filibuster. Everything you see here was improved from his own mind. Nerd respect.
Bioshock Infinite Review (PS3/Xbox360)
It’s been a long time since we’ve had an original Bioshock game and Irrational Games has come to take back their franchise. Bioshock Infinite takes place on the floating city of Colombia and you take control of Booker DeWitt, a man with a lot of debt on his hands. He is given his final task. “Bring back the girl, wipe away the debt.” So as Booker travels to the world of Colombia, you’ll be...

What is it Wednesday? - February 20, 2013
Hello and welcome to something new I wanted to introduce to the site! No more HumpDay Humours (at least for now); some weeks it’s just tough to find something funny (even though the interweb is full of pics) and I wanted to bring something fresh to the site. So now you’ll get What is it Wednesdays a guessing game of sorts where we post a picture of something,...

Final Fantasy XIII (Xbox 360 & PS3) Trying something new today, enjoy the video! (It’s also a test for future fun times, thus some oddities in the video).
Letter From an Editor
Hello Good People of the Internet, Nick here reporting to you for BrNN. We’ve had some questions as of late as to why we haven’t been posting as we used to and I’m here to answer that question! Tony and I have entered out final semester of university and are crazy busy. Because of said crazy busy school schedule we are on a bit of a hiatus until further notice. That...

Video Game Review: Assassin's Creed 3
This week I switch gears a bit with a Video Game review. Assassins Creed 3, the fifth game in the Assassin’s Creed series, introduces a brand new character and a brand new local. For those waiting for a proper sequel to Ezio’s prolonged story you might not be fully impressed with Ubisoft Montreal’s latest creation. Even though Assassin’s Creed is a well-known franchise in the gaming...
Game Review: ZombiU (Wii U)
Okay finals are over and it’s time to get my game on. First up on the list is ZombiU (a game that will have the oddest sequel title ever). I’m not a huge fan of recent zombie games (minus The Walking Dead Game), so much ammo and just shooting the heck out of everything in sight. Well I was in for a pleasant surprise, keep reading to find out more… The game opens with you...
First Impressions: Wii U Review
Wii U Review It’s here, the new Nintendo console is here! And on top of that I got mine so I have actually got to play around with one and try all of it’s features for myself. Other (bigger) game sites got their systems a couple weeks ago, but now you get to hear my opinion! I know you’re excited. So is the Wii U worth picking up or should it remain on store shelves during...
Movie Friday Review: Skyfall
There was a lot of talk of Bond 22 not getting off the ground since MGM issue a few years back. Not to sound clique or anything but Bond is back. Skyfall, the newest James Bond iteration, has something for both Bond fans and action movie fans. What makes Skyfall so unique and why do I give it my personal favorite Bond since his revival in Goldeneye? Find out below! Skyfall begins with...
Sunday Afternoon Time Waster - Desert Bus 6
Watch live video from db_high on www.twitch.tv Well it’s that time of year again. The guys over at Loading Ready Run get together once a year to play one of the worst games of all time for charity. Have fun watching them struggle to play it hours upon hours on end. While you’re at it donate some money, it’s all going to Child’s Play. Have fun you guys and best of luck...
Game Review - Harvest Moon: A New Beginning (3DS)
Harvest Moon, what a wonderfully addictive game you can be. I’ve reviewed other games in the series before last up was the disappointing Tale of Two Towns that was just a port of the disappointing DS game. So is this game really a new beginning for the series or is it just another dud. Story As per usual you are a young man who inherits a farm, but this time it’s a gift from your...
Sunday Afternoon Time Waster - Alphagames
Alphagames from Evan Seitz on Vimeo. I might teach my kids the alphabet using this week’s Time Waster Video. What score did you get?
Movie Friday Review: Wreck-it Ralph
No Netflix movie this week because there was another mammoth movie that came out that I was obliged to see. I speak of Wreck-it Ralph, the Disney video game hybrid that mixes in Disney style story telling with real life video game references. With all the advertising for the movie from word of mouth alone, you would have to be living under a rock if you haven’t heard of this movie. Let’s...
Sunday Afternoon Time Waster - Meet the Dumpster...
I hope this guy entered his video into the Second Annual Saxxy Awards. I’m totally going to vote on his entry this year.
Netflix Movie Friday: The Crazies
A bit thin on the movie review this week. The Crazies is my choice of movie this week. I know I know, it’s a pretty generic action horror movie. While this movie might not be the greatest film of all time (some might say it’s actually pretty bad), it’s not too terrible. With lackluster special effects and a forgettable story, The Crazies is a very weak recreation of the 1973 recreation of...
Sunday Afternoon Time Waster - Whedon On Romney
Thanks to Joss Whedon for clarifying what Romney’s position is. I for one am ready for the Zombie Apocalypse.
Movie Friday Review: Ghost Rider: Spirit of...
This week is a movie that some people thought would’ve been good though I had my doubts when it came out. Thankfully I’m not wrong in my concerns. Of course I’m talking about Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. Don’t be fooled by the look and release of this movie. It is in no way shape or form a sequel/prequel/related to the other Ghost Rider movie staring Nicolas Cage. Why is this a bad...
Game Review - Dishonored (Xbox 360 & PS3)
Well folks it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything and for that I apologize. Sickness and school have had a grasp on me, but now I’m back and with a great game to review to boot! So what makes this game worth buying? Read on to find out! Story The story revolves around Corvo Attano, head bodyguard (Royal Protector) to Empress Jessamine Kaldwin of Dunwall. Corvo has been...

Netflix Movie Friday: Mission Impossible: Ghost...
This week’s movie review comes from last year’s action movie Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. Tom Cruise and director Brad Bird (The Incredibles) brings the high-octane action of the popular action series back. The IMF is on its last legs and it’s up to Ethan Hunt and his team to save what’s left of the organization. The IMF has been framed by a bombing of the Kremlin in Russia. ...
Sunday Afternoon Time Waster - Siri Duet
Quite possibly one of the best uses of Siri since her/his/it’s inception, such a catchy little tune. John, avid YouTuber, has been making a song a day. Follow his channel here.
