The Pipeline: Mercenary Life Gets Rough In 8Days

A reminder that old-school shooters can be hard!
Drop-down games are always a blast—and when they're shooters, it feels a little extra urgent. Something about these games always takes me back to titles like the original Metal Gear, where you have a clear understanding that your death is going to send you straight back to the start, and all your progress will have meant nothing.

A chat with the band from their show at Urban Lounge last Saturday.
As you may have read in last week's City Weekly, Hound Mystic released their latest album at Urban Lounge on Saturday night. Seeing as how the show looked to be pretty cool, I decided to pop in and check it out.

Dara Modern

Finding unique furniture along East Broadway.
The East Broadway District—better known as 300 South in downtown SLC between State Street and 400 East—seems to go through ups and downs. Some years it's extraordinary, like the years when it had Red Light Sound, Kayo Gallery and Slowtrain populating its many shops.

The Pipeline: Hacking The World To Freedom In Dex

The cyberpunk RPG finally makes its way to home console.
The Czech Republic-based Dreadlocks Ltd (teaming with developer Badland Indie) managed to do what few gaming companies have been able to pull off: launch a successful video game on Kickstarter. Where many failed before and after them, Dex succeeded, and has that top honor as proof that great things can be accomplished with crowdfunding.

Lavender Vinyl

Talking to the founders of Ogden's latest record shop.
Parts of Ogden are starting to see a business renaissance. For years, the city has had a lot of its real estate messed with in various ways, just looking at the last year of Mojo's before it closed down as a prime example.

July Gallery Stroll: Matthew Choberka

A look at the works currently at CUAC for July
It was a salty kind of weekend for many of us with the heat beating down. Nearly reaching 100° in SLC, Friday night wasn't exactly what you would call the ideal weather for Gallery Stroll, but art lovers pressed on as galleries offered cool water at nearly every stop.

Pale Horse Sound Studios

A chat with the founder of the Pleasant Grove studio.
Studios are branching out everywhere across the Wasatch Front—and with good reason, as our music scene has been seeing a steady rise in new bands looking to make quality albums. It's cool, yet very uncharacteristic of our scene, as a lot of musicians went the DIY route for so many years making music out of their basements, but now we're seeing people willing to spend their hard-earned cash on quality.

The Pipeline: Umbrella Corps, What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

A mercenary searching for zombie secrets in Capcom's latest shooter.
If you're any fan of the zombie-killing genre of video games, there's at least one Resident Evil title that has a special place in your heart. Mine goes all the way back to Resident Evil 2, being given a choice in having a strong woman character who wasn't afraid of anything.
