'Middle-earth: Shadow of War' expands and improves on its predecessor in almost every way from longer story, deeper character interaction and development between them, abilities, loot and upgrades and the Nemesis System. Despite these great features and fun gameplay, it can feel cheap at times when Talion doesn’t seem to react to the player’s button presses or goes after the wrong target in a huge mob, wasting the momentum built by executing combos.

'Fire Emblem Warriors', for all its faults in trying to tell a decent story, still manages to create a satisfying gaming experience. History mode and other extra challenges keep the fun from running out too quickly, and the power of the game’s audiovisuals simply can't be denied.
Packing in some decent social commentary and a few laughs, “Franchise Prequel” is a good episode that will never make anyone’s “Top 10 South Park Episodes” list. While it won’t win any awards, it’s still better than the majority of season 20.
I have taken three immersive learning classes so far during my time at Ball State. This number includes the two classes that I am currently in. If you don’t know what an immersive learning class is, it is blank.
By showing off a literal world-class roster of interview subjects and amazingly streamlined graphics, ‘The New Fire’ pulls off what decades of nuclear power advocates have not been able to do: bring people out of the Cold War era mindsets to support sustainable, carbon-neutral energy sources.
I pile as many dishes as I can on top of one another. My hands become covered with gravy, Frank’s Red Hot sauce and pancake syrup. I grab cups and coffee mugs that aren’t emptied yet and I feel apple juice, milk, and cold coffee on my fingertips.
The Lost Girls by Heather Young is the type of book where you tell yourself, "Oh, I'll go to bed after this, just one more chapter," and then you can't sleep because you can't stop thinking about it.
Our nation is in trouble. Wildfires have ravaged our lands in the hills of California. Hurricanes have come knocking at our shores. Our capitol spins like a top every day as the investigation to possible Russian collusion continues. But here’s something that may surprise you; none of these are our nation’s most pressing issue.
Cheap effects, poor writing, and uninspired action sequences prevent this season premiere from being anything more than a reminder that nothing of too much importance will likely happen until the mid-season finale.
‘Dealt’ is an informative, multifaceted, and incredibly entertaining documentary. A snapshot of the life of renowned card magician Richard Turner, it is a story of individuality that is exactly as magical as its subject.
Heartland Film Festival: ‘The Best of All Worlds’ strikes a perfect balance between tragedy and hope
‘The Best of All Worlds’ tells an incredible true story just about as well as it could have been told. It looks great, it’s well acted, and most importantly, it shares valuable inside perspective on the battle between love and addiction.
For those who don’t know, the lootbox is a digital box with randomly selected items that can be used in the game. This can be as simple as a new voice line to a whole new character in some games and the value of what’s in the box can fluctuate wildly. It’s sort of like getting a box of chocolates.
Best unheard of Halloween movies: 'The Invitation' is the best slow-burn thriller you have never seen
This film is going to sit you down and make you reconsider everything you know and love. If you’re looking for a horror film that won’t necessarily scare you, but make you feel despair throughout your whole body, The Invitation is right up your alley.
Best unheard of Halloween movies: ‘Stitches’ is the quintessential slasher flick, now with more clowns
The word to describe this movie is “fun.” It’s hard to go into most slasher movies expecting actual quality, but that’s because slasher movies aren’t trying to be anything Oscar-worthy.
Heartland Film Festival: ‘Laddie: The Man Behind the Movies’ – The story of the man who saved ‘Star Wars’
"Laddie: The Man Behind the Movies" gives an in-depth look at the life and career of Alan Ladd Jr. that has not previously been explored. While the subject is certainly interesting, the notion of a daughter learning to appreciate and accept her father's career is the film's real strength.
‘Instrument of War’ is an emotional rollercoaster that brings a rare hopeful story to the war film genre. Despite a couple of head-scratching deus ex machina moments, it’s a wonderful true story that proves that where there’s a will, there’s always a way.
A great execution of a play-to-film adaptation, ‘The Drawer Boy’ is a quaint film that nonetheless packs no shortage of emotional power. It impresses through simple storytelling coupled with incredible performances from its three main actors.
The fence is 200 feet away, grass green and dirt a grayish brown from the rain that came down earlier. A man on a riding lawn mower does his work on the baseball field behind me. I’m sure he’s wondering what a girl is doing sitting in an empty dugout of a recreation softball field on a Monday afternoon.
I’m taking pictures of Homecoming on a Saturday morning, and I see these two grown women dressed up with a mustache and a sombrero. They are walking with a group of girls, possibly between the ages of 8 and 9. These little girls are wearing sombreros too.
When it comes to Ball State’s decision to not allow 13 fraternities to have alcohol at their events, I am relieved that some action is being taken by the university but I am still concerned about the well being of women on this campus.
