Editorial: A Raisin in L.A. Noire

By Larry Ragland

LANoirePic2.jpg

During my time in college one the courses I took was an English Literature class and part of our assigned reading was to analyze as a class Lorraine Hansberry’s “A Raisin in the sun.” Written as a play in 1959 (and later a film adaptation starring Sidney Poitier in 1961) the story takes place shortly after World War II and takes the reader/viewer into the life of the Younger family, a poor African-American family that has the opportunity to significantly change their lives. If you haven’t read it you really should. It is an excellent depiction of post war African-Americans trying to obtain a piece of that ever elusive slice of the American pie.

Halo 4 Review

By Larry Ragland

halo-4-game-cover.jpg

Halo fans freaked out like grunts without a leader when they found out that Bungie was handing over the Halo franchise to another developer. Many thought that justice could not be done. I wasn’t one of those people. Those people were wrong.

I won’t bother listing all the names of all the talented people and all the places from which they came to create this game. That road is far too long to go down and it’s been pointed out ad nauseam elsewhere. Besides the proof is always in the pudding, and this pudding is so good that armed with a needler and a spoon, Bill Cosby tried to jack some from an ODST in the mess hall.

Hidden blades, hooded robes, climbing structures and leaping across rooftops are the embodiment of the Assassin’s Creed franchise.  Assassins Creed has always been a game that focuses on a particular time period and recreates every single aspect of that era so perfectly from the streets of Jerusalem, to Italy and Istanbul.  Assassins Creed 3 is no different either with Boston and New York recreated faithfully in the latest instalment of the series.
