Kaiju Week: Godzilla Final Wars (Destroy All Monsters 2)

To this day Godzilla has starred in thirty films, four tv shows, and twenty five video games. When Toho created the monster in 1954 they had no way to know that it would take the world by storm. Many critics and fans of the series cried out for a spiritual successor to Godzilla Destroy All Monsters. Destroy All Monsters had been revolutionary when it came out for allowing so many fan favorites to appear in one film. A lot of monsters had been created since the films release and the fans had waited patiently to see another monster royal rumble. Fans would have to wait until the 50th anniversary of the original film to see their desire fulfilled.

Kaiju Week: Godzilla VS. Biollante

     If there is one thing that goes without saying it is that each Godzilla film is a product of the decade in which it was made. The original film came out during an era where Japan was having to deal with the real life effects of atomic war. This fear lead to the creation of one of the most iconic giant monster films of all time. While in the U.S. Godzilla is viewed as a joke and something to parody by making fun of the poor dubbing. In Japan the films at times have been used as cautionary tails.

Haunted House

Upon crossing the creaking and forbidding threshold of the mansion I lit a match and my heart sank. The darkness ahead seemed to swallow the meager light of the match as the long corridor that stretched out before me disappeared. It was like staring into an abyss lying on its side.

Meeting Of The Mines (Con)vention

Normally I try to let you all know about good news within the geek community. Unfortunately this time I have to cover something rather serious. Since it is becoming more and more popular to be a geek we are going to see more people attempt to take advantage of us for their own game. A couple in Florida (Danielle Rojas and Kevin Roman) attempted to defraud a couple of hundred parents with a fake Minecraft convention. This was brought to my attention the day that it occurred by a friend of AGGN in Orlando.

The couple that organized the Meeting of the Mines convention made promises that they never could have followed through on. These same promises were what stuck out to me about their website.
