Missner’s Manifesto: Football? I’m Out

I am not an activist. In fact, I find other people’s efforts at activism confusing. Look, if you want to be a vegetarian or whatever else, that’s fine with me. Just don’t ask me to join you. I like to make up my own mind about things and don’t care to join bandwagons. All that […]

Madden NFL 10 Review

In honor of the start of hut hut season, I’ve been playing a lot of Madden NFL 10 for my PS3 (actually the main reason I’ve been playing it is because EA sent me a copy to review!). As usual, its a great game and just as fun as when I first played Madden back […]

Tiger Wood PGA Tour 10 Review

I suck at putting. Not real-life putting – I haven’t played real golf in over a decade, and I’m decent enough at the mini variety. No, I suck at virtual putting. And to add insult to my injury, the announce team in Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 like to remind me of this fact. My […]

Fight Night Round 4 Review

I stopped being a boxing fan quite a few years ago. I enjoyed the sport back in the days when every Mike Tyson PPV was an event due to his boxing, and not biting, skills. Plus when my hometown hero Lennox Lewis ruled the roost I obviously paid attention. But the million different title holders […]
