DC Takes TV
BY WADE NAZIRI ON OCTOBER 10
For years the two big comic book companies, DC and Marvel, have been competing. In recent years it seems that Marvel has been winning due to all their successful movies.
About two years ago DC decided to make a TV show called “Arrow,” which is about their hero, Green Arrow. The show was a large success for DC. Sensing that they had finally found a way to strike back at Marvel, DC had decided to capitalize on their television success.This fall DC Studios released two shows, “Gotham” and “Flash,” based off of their popular comics.

I get home, overloaded with my year-long anticipation, knowing it's about to be satisfied. As I slide the recently purchased cartridge into my console, images flash through my mind of all the articles, images and videos I've seen, building my hype for months.

As southern food-loving North Carolinians, we'd all be lying if we said we didn't like Chick-fil-a. Something about their chicken is inexplicably good and keeps us coming back. I don't think it's humanly possible to be tired of Chick-fil-a, but one day last summer, I pondered the possibilities of delicious meals that could be made if Chick-fil-a offered more than just chicken. This sparked the idea of a lifetime. If you're an avid Chick-fil-a lover as I am, prepare to have your mind blown.

I spent a large amount of my childhood playing video games and ever since I’ve gotten older, it’s not often that I get that same sense of wonder and excitement at what lies ahead in a game. The feeling of not wanting to go to bed because there’s something new to experience, and waking up the next day, immediately wanting to continue on your adventure. It’s rare getting that feeling, but Destiny is able to accomplish just that.
