The 50 Most Frustrating Moments In Video Games
Remind me again why we love video games.
Everything Wrong With The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug
Ah, The Hobbit 2. The almost-3-hour sequel to the almost-3-hour first film from last year. It’s pretty much more of the same, so if you liked the first one, you will… not enjoy this video.
Helpful reminders: We have read the books, they still don’t matter, & yes, we’re still angry about some of the sins from the last movie, like the eagles.
