‘Bioshock Infinite’ review

Gus Sevastos Editorials   I really wish there were words I could write to describe the overall experience of this game. However, this is one of the first games I have played in a very long time that has ever left me speechless. “Bioshock Infinite” is not only a narrative masterpiece, but a game that not only stands alongside its predecessor, and challenges everything about the original game as well. In “Bioshock Infinite,” set in 1912, the player takes on the role of Booker DeWitt, a war veteran and former…

Finals: One man’s tale of love, academia, and quest for sleep

Gus Sevastos Editorialist It is finally upon us; that one malicious week of the year that college students dread: finals week. For those who are concerned with their grade, it is a vicious cycle of constant studying and finishing up of last minute work that needs to be done. Sleep is a luxury that is rarely affordable to most students, some of them in danger of failing because they neglected projects until the last minute. For some students at Wilmington, this will be their first battle with the monster; for…

Pippin (played by Ely Bolitho) is looking to find his calling in life, or as he puts it, his own “corner of the sky.” However, Pippin is a scholar and a dreamer and is often overshadowed by his hyper-masculine step-brother,…

Flight: Denzel’s performance soars but Zemeckis’ grounds

Gus Sevastos Editorialist   Flight is a pretty good movie. It harbors an all star cast, an accolade laden director, and Denzel Washington’s best performance yet. The story of an heroic pilot’s attempt to end his self destructive ways is not only captivating, but it also hits the heartstrings on several occasions. The beginning of the film really sets the tone: Whip Whittaker (Denzel Washington) awakens in a hotel room after a long night of partying with a stewardess. After a few drinks and some cocaine, he is ready to…
