On the first “Special” episode of Crit or Miss, Tanner discusses a dark cloud that follows around one of the greatest RPGs ever made, GURPS.

5 Deaths that Devastated Fandoms

It is a sad fact of life, but where there is a fandom of fervent fans who absolutely love a TV show, movie series, or video game… There is going to be deaths so tragic that it just brings a tear to your eye at the mere sound or sight of their name. Those characters that will always be remembered tragically and with contempt for the creators for taking our beloved treasures away from us. This list is to commemorate 5 of those characters who left us with a void in our heart that simply could not be replaced.

So here are the Rules
One character per franchise. Harry Potter has a plethora of tragic deaths… But only one can be chosen.
The character has to stay dead or have a complete character redesign.
There is no rhyme or reason to this list. It is just ten characters whose deaths hurt the most.
If I missed someone from your favorite fandom, I’ll be honest it might just be because I missed it… Or I just don’t care about that particular fandom.
There are spoilers from this point on. So if you get upset… Oh well, not my problem. Continue reading “5 Deaths that Devastated Fandoms”

Batman: Arkham Knight Side Missions Ranked from Worst to Best

I think many people can remember my long rant about Batman: Arkham Knight and the fact that the game did not live up to my expectations. Well, here is the thing. I still love playing the game. I have been playing it the past couple of days. I don’t dislike the game, I just think it could have been substantially better then what it was. But, I do still enjoy it and I also enjoy the side quests that the game has to offer. Considering the game gives mountains of opportunities, I have decided to list them from worst to best. Now, I should add that just because a mission is at the bottom or the top of this list doesn’t mean that the game sucks for it or has changed the game forever. It is just the worst or best of the series that connects to a good game. I should also like to add that I am including the Season of Infamy Expansion on it as well. That being said, let’s start with our weak links. Continue reading “Batman: Arkham Knight Side Missions Ranked from Worst to Best”

Top Four Most Underrated Batman Villains

When it comes to superheroes, I doubt that you will find a more colorful cast of super villains than the set that battles the caped crusader, Batman! Out of all the superheroes out there, I do not think there is a better cast of villains than Batman’s. They are colorful, maniacal, represent different styles of crime from mob bosses to deranged clowns. It is easy to see, with such a massive collection of villains, that a couple would begin to slip through the cracks and forgotten to the Penguins, Harley Quinns, and Jokers of the world. So I decided to dedicate a list to some of the Batman villains who do not get the due credit that they deserve. This is the Top Four Most Underrated Batman Villains!

Once again, setting a few parameters for this list. This list is not going to include any MAJOR main stream Batman villains. If you think Harley Quinn doesn’t get due credit or that Harvey Two Face is a better primary antagonist to Batman than Joker, so sorry! This list isn’t for you! This list is meant to shed some light on the Batman villains who do not typically get the spotlight. Also, these villains are meant to encompass a serious challenge to the Batman over time. So you won’t see any of the Quilt King or some of the more silly villains Batman encounter in the Silver Age. With that being said, let’s get to number 4.

Tanner Reviews Firefly

FireflyopeninglogoSo guess whose birthday is tomorrow?… Of course it would be this guy! Yep, my birthday is tomorrow and in honor of it I thought I would take it a little easy this Tuesday and review one of my favorite all be it short-lived television shows of all time, Firefly. Yes, once again I let my nerd flag fly high and proud as I will freely admit to my extreme admiration for the 2001 Science Fiction show produced and written by a young Joss Whedon. The fourteen episode long cult classic had the misfortune of falling into the black pit of despair that is the Fox Line Up and has since found quite a cult following from fans that have led to many calling for a revival of the series and the creation of the feature-length movie Serenity.

Tanner Reviews Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog

Doctor_Horrible_BannerWith only seven more days until my trip to Origins Game Fair… I thought it would be appropriate to review something that seems to be nerd incarnate. A 45 minute string of videos made by Joss Whedon with the assistance of his family members Zack and Jed. The film starred Nathan Fillion, Felicia Day, and fucking Neil Patrick Harris himself, this film is the  definition of awesome personified! NPH from How I Met Your Mother has become a walking talking internet meme, Nathan Fillion none other than Mal Reynolds himself from Firefly, and Felica Day from Supernatural and Buffy the Vampire Slayer not to mention Whedon whose credentials speak for themselves… Sweet Jesus the nerdery is glorious.
