When Titan offered The MacGuffin a chance to speak with Martin about the release, we naturally said ‘yes’ as loudly as possible. Luckily, Martin obliged us and provided us with some great material for our interview. Our review will be posted soon, so sit back and let Martin tell…

Playstation Plus in Review: April 2nd, 2014

To preface, I would like to apologize for my lateness in posting. I had created a draft for this article, but through the magic of idiocy, I never posted it. So, again, I apologize. Please don’t hate me forever. I bruise easily.

Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat Graphic Novel is coming July 2014!

Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat Graphic Novel is coming July 2014! @andreziffy

Here at The MacGuffin, we’re HUGE fans of indie publications and we do everything we can to get the word out about lesser-known or independent projects. After all, they are the gems of the industry (at least in my opinion). So it’s with great excitement that I let everyone know about an upcoming project from Andrez Bergen, known simply (and awesomely) as TOBACCO-STAINED MOUNTAIN GOAT! Check out…

Under-the-Radar Reviews: A Band Called Death

Under-the-Radar Reviews: A Band Called Death by @CainMillerFilms

I’m no Todd in the Shadows, but I consider myself to be a pretty big music guy. Whether it be the classic pop sounds of The Beatles or the smooth, soulful stylings of Jon Lajoie, I’ve always considered music to be a very big part of my life. That’s why it’s always interesting when I come across a documentary that recognizes one of the lesser known greats of the music industry. The underrated…

THE WALKING DEAD#124 give us part 10 of “All Out War” and it’s yet another great issue of this arc. But more than that, it leaves us with an important question: is Rock Grimes going to die? Take a second and think about that for a while:…

Playstation Plus in Review: March 25th, 2014

Hello there, friends. We have no idea what’s coming up in April as of yet, but I’m waiting for that one killer game that will break me out of my “I-can’t-afford-this-service-because-of-my-credit-card-debt-wah-wah-wah” phase. Who knows what the future holds, though. Moving on, here is your IGC Game Of The Week!
