Firefly Cargo Crate 009: Going Mad

by xdustineflxon 11/08/2017
Hey, everyone (all zero of you). I’m back with another review in the Firefly Cargo Crate series. This time, the theme is “Going Mad”, with a focus on Serenity’s resident doctor, Simon Tam. As always, let’s take care of the sticker first.   Londinium, as you can see by the sticker, is the capital of […]

Firefly Cargo Crate 008: No Power in the ‘Verse

by xdustineflxon 06/06/2017
I’m back with another review for the oh-so-good Firefly Cargo Crate series. As I said last month, this month’s theme is “No Power in the ‘Verse”, dedicated to River Tam. River is one of the best sci-fi characters ever created (in my opinion, at least), so I’m looking forward to what’s in store this time […]

Firefly Cargo Crate 007: The Worthier Part

by xdustineflxon 01/04/2017
Alright, I’m back with the latest edition of the Firefly Cargo Crate from Loot Crate and Quantum Mechanix. This time, the theme is “The Worthier Part”, dedicated to everyone’s favourite preacher-man, Shepher Derrial Book (played by the late, great Ron Glass. We miss you, Ron.). Let’s start with a graphic novel, dedicated to the man […]

Firefly Cargo Crate 006: YoSaffBridge

by xdustineflxon 01/02/2017
For the first time since Loot Crate and QMx started doing these, this month’s Firefly Cargo Crate is actually themed after a supporting character from the show instead of one of the main cast. And, they’ve got a crowd favourite, that being YoSaffBridge (a mash-up of her three aliases, Yolanda, Saffron and Bridgette), most commonly known as […]

Firefly Cargo Crate 005: Serenity

by xdustineflxon 09/12/2016
This is the fifth box in the Firefly Cargo Crate series, and this time, it’s dedicated to the ship herself, Serenity. Essentially the tenth member of the crew (and probably even more iconic), it’s fitting she’d get her own box. I’m excited to see what Loot Crate and QMx have put together this time around, […]

Firefly Cargo Crate 004: A Leaf on the Wind

by xdustineflxon 20/10/2016
We are up to the fourth round in the Cargo Crates, courtesy of a joint effort between Loot Crate and Quantum Mechanix, and this time, the theme is “A Leaf on the Wind”. If you couldn’t surmise by the theme name, that means a heavy emphasis on the best gorramn pilot in the galaxy, Hoban […]

by xdustineflxon 26/09/2016
For those that don’t know, “Can’t Stop the Serenity”, or CSTS for short, is a worldwide event that takes place every single year. Several cities around the world are chosen for special screenings of the film Serenity the follow up to Joss Whedon’s beloved Firefly television show, with all of the money going to Equality Now, Joss’ favourite […]

Firefly Cargo Crate 003: Big Damn Heroes

by xdustineflxon 03/08/2016
Although I am no longer a regular Loot Crate subscriber, I am continuing on with their Firefly Cargo Crates, having been a subscriber since the first one. Thanks to a deal with Quantum Mechanix, the official merchandiser of Firefly replica items and collectibles, the quality of these boxes is top-notch, and I have yet to […]

Denver Comic-Con 2016, Part 1: The First Day

by xdustineflxon 27/06/2016
This past Father’s Day weekend in the US also marked the fifth annual Denver Comic-Con in Denver, CO. I have attended this event every year since its inception, and each year, the event has grown exponentially bigger than the last. This year was no exception. DCC has quickly become one of the biggest events of […]

The Heartbreak of Half-Life

by redshirtjamieon 21/02/2016
The air is acrid, thick with the vapour trails of stinger missiles and gunpowder. Spent shell casings litter the forest floor and the roar of my buggy engine is the only sound that perforates the post battle silence. Moments ago, determined screams of the Resistance echoed through the trees as Striders fell hard through the forest […]
