EPIC MICKEY preview; BLOOD DRIVE in Review
So yeah, EPIC MICKEY looks pretty great. I sat in on a conference call/moderated interview with Warren Spector and the report is at Oh, and I also reviewed BLOOD DRIVE. Unfortunately.
LUCHA LIBRE in Revew (PS3/360)
This, my friends, is how you advertise a motion picture.  Unfortunately, the video game I'm reviewing here isn't nearly as amazing as this film.
Bill Abner let me send a couple of questions out to the guys behind the upcoming LUCHA LIBRE video game (all consoles) since I'm the only person on staff who could recognize the differences between luchadore masks.

Second is a review...
