I am in a unique and wonderful position here at Stardock in that I genuinely enjoy spending time with my colleagues. Many of us spend time outside of work hours playing board games, slaying monsters in Dungeons & Dragons, or critiquing new and popular films out at the theater together.  Once in awhile, our amazing operations team plans an outing for us so we can all get out of the office and enjoy some teambuilding activities. Autumn is widely celebrated in Michigan as cider season, ...

Back in 2018, James Wan's Aquaman made a big splash (pun intended) at the box office. In early 2019, we learned about Warner Brothers' plan to develop a smaller-scale horror spinoff based on the creatures that appeared during the underwater trench sequence of that movie. Which seemed weird, sure, but also made sense as a next step in superhero films for the director of movies like Saw, Insidious, and Malignant.  The Trench movie was canceled earlier this year - b...

I am a lover of soups, stews, and chilis. The very second the weather dipped below 60 here in Michigan, I popped my head out the door and bellowed "SOUP SEASON!" ...you think I'm exaggerating or being dramatic, but I'm not. My friends (and my poor neighbors) will attest. Anyway, I'm not the only one who loves this time of year around here! Fall sees all sorts of fun activities popping up at Stardock, from visits to Cider Mills, to Halloween costume contests, and of course also...

On Monday, Disney announced that a slew of upcoming releases (most of which are Marvel superhero films) have been pushed back by a matter of months. Some eagle-eyed viewers noticed that some previously announced movies have been taken off the schedule all together - so what's going on? There are a couple of possible reasons. Disney could potentially be hoping that, by waiting a few extra months, people will start returning to the movie theaters with more frequency, thus upping box office gain...

If you know me, then you know that the idea of me writing about any form of organization is a ploy of comedy in and of itself. Still, as all over the place as I am with just about every aspect of my life, that doesn't stop me from trying to be more organized. I spend quite a lot of time at my computer, both for work and for leisure. Beyond a few very important things, I don't really have much of a system for where I put documents or shortcuts - they just sort of get lobbed...

While the games that maintain the top "popular" slots may not always be games that we agree with, we have to admit that they hold those slots for a reason. I will even confess to having played a little bit of Epic's Fortnite game, only to find myself pleasantly surprised with how enjoyable it was.  That doesn't mean I have any interest in watching a movie about it, but here we are. According to The Information, Epic Games is considering the idea of expanding into the entertainm...

If you're a Windows user, then you've definitely had this happen before. You're playing or working, deeply engrossed in whatever it is you're doing, and then suddenly your computer alerts you to a Windows update! Or, in some cases, just shuts down and decides to update right then and there. It's obnoxious, it's frustrating, and now it's hopefully a thing of the past. Windows 11 launched just a couple of days ago and Microsoft had been telling us quite a lot about their new OS leading up th...

Image Credit: TechCrunchOn Monday, Facebook and its other affiliate sites were down and out for the count for a number of hours in a rare lengthy outage. This led to some outcry, as well as some pretty hilarious memes - but that's neither here nor there! Facebook announced today that they are rolling out the co-streaming feature for all of their creators on their Facebook Gaming platform. The feature allows users to team up and stream with each other, while enabling viewers to navigate betw...
