I am not a fan of jump scares. Jump scares are the refuge of the unimaginative. They are Vine fodder. They are the stuff […]

We ran this last year, too — but this time it can get us prepped a day before instead of laughing through exhaustion on Saturday. May your […]
Stealthily, almost like Batman himself, Telltale Games has changed the game. They were truly pioneering interactive entertainment with games like Bone: Out from Boneville, Sam & […]

Holy crap. I suspect this must be the most dangerous thing to do at Comic-Con, and that’s including The Walking Dead. Walk into the world of Rick and […]
We had fun at Silicon Valley Comic Con this year, not least because it was in our backyard. Steve Wozniak and friends brought a lot […]
We have many beloved comics shops. You can’t be a comics fan and not connect with the people that sell you your books. In the […]
The Fanboys ask all the questions you want answers for, like Star Wars – Rogue One, Marvel coming to Comic-Con, Hard Rock Hotel turning into Belle Reve, Sacha Baron Cohen turning into Mandrake the Magician, The Killing Joke, is Sharon Stone Firestar, do we need another Battlestar Galactica, Ghostbusters, the return of Transformers the Movie , Voltron, Bendis and Maleev’s Scarlet on Cinemax, Superman on Supergirl, Game of Thrones, Zombie Stormtroopers, and so much more!
Congratulations, Luke. This is the moment I officially decided I’m getting a Playstation 4. Warner Brothers Interactive has teamed with Rocksteady Studios — and they’ve […]

This concluding episode we’ll be looking at a couple of real-world examples of what you can come to expect from the future of digital media, and how to best prepare for it.
Of course like all modern trilogies, there’s the potential for sequels. If you have questions or if there are new developments in this area, Digital Fanboy is the friend who will either explain it or tell you you’re better off not knowing.
In Episode 1 we talked about the benefits and additional features we get from electronic media. The terms we hear and what they mean. This round we’ll be looking into how digital media works, and fails – What DRM is and means and how it creates opportunity and complicates “ownership” of digital works. (If you’re paying attention, there’s a little Rebels V. Empire here that you can try at home, but you didn’t hear that from me.)
Digital Fanboy is our exploration into digital media. How we use it, how it uses us, and how to get a better handle on everything. I hope that by breaking this down into small tastes I can help you understand what the present and future hold for us, just as I exorcise my own demons in this area. Come, take the red pill…
