Mortal Kombat (Film) Review

Mortal Kombat M

Mortal Kombat has a lot in common with our previous entry (as in being so bad it’s enjoyable), but with one key difference: it actually sticks to its source material pretty accurately! I mean… given MK’s early storyline, I’m not entirely sure if that’s a good thing or not, but it is the first game to movie in this marathon that’s done it, so… hooray I guess! Let’s take a look…

Mortal Kombat (Mega Drive) Review

Mortal Kombat

Also known as “The game with the Blood Cheat”, at least in my school playground, Mortal Kombat was quite the noteworthy release, being the first console game that I’m aware of that was so blatantly violent and gory, even if that gore was hidden behind a (very easy to find and spread to friends) cheat code. Ignoring the impact it had, I remember not really enjoying it too much as an actual fighter, preferring the visuals of a Street Fighter II, but still… there’s a scene where someone removes their opponent’s heart! SO COOL. etc. etc. Simpler times, but how does it hold out today, where it’s relatively tame? (much like a certain film adaptation…) let’s find out!

DW: Facing Fate – Breakfast at Tyranny’s Review

DW Breakfast at Tyranny's

It’s time to resume our look at the Year Three Titan Doctor Who comics proper with the 10th Doctor, a run with the subtitle “Facing Fate” (a subtitle seems to be a theme with the three core Titan Doctors last year…) Volume 1 of this year has the frankly fantastic subtitle of “Breakfast at Tyranny’s” and sees our lead trio being manipulated by powerful forces, as they tend to do…

Mega Man 9 (PS3) Review

Mega Man 9

Mega Man 9 was a weird experience for me, given I’ve been playing through the series from MM1 in the last year and a bit, therefore the nostalgia was wasted on me because it felt like the games I played a few months ago, rather than years ago! While I have some issues with just how far they rolled the game system back, not to mention how unfairly difficult it was at times, I still had more fun with this than the previous entry, that’s for sure! Let’s take a closer look, then, shall we?

The War Master: Rage of the Time Lords Review

WM Rage of the Time Lords

Rage of the Time Lords was actually released a few months back, but due to all the crazy nonsense in my life, I decided to save it for when I was better able to settle down and listen to it… and here we are! Admittedly, after all that, Rage of the Time Lords is good, but fails to live up to the hype of the previous two War Master sets, which have been among my favourite Who related material each year they were released. That’s not to say this is bad though! Let’s take a closer look…

One Punch Man – Season 2 Overall Review

OPM Season 2

It’s (a reasonably late look at) the return of One Punch Man, a series parodying Shonen action shows that really took off a few years ago thanks to its sense of humour and frankly jaw-dropping animation. Season 2 continues… the humour, though some of it is getting old, but drops the ball with a new animation studio. Is it still worth a watch though?

Street Fighter Film Review

Street Fighter Film

Remember in Street Fighter II, when Guile dodged missiles in a stealth boat while talking like Jean-Claude Van Damme? Nor do I… How about when Ryu and Ken were smuggling guns into Asia… No, I don’t seem to remember that in the original Street Fighter either… Welcome to the world of the Street Fighter movie, where barely anything resembles the game it’s based on, but what the hell, let’s make the film anyway! Sounds a lot like the other two films I’ve reviewed in the this series so far, actually… *sigh*, let’s take a look!

Street Fighter (Arcade) Review

Street Fighter

Now I know what you’re thinking, “Street Fighter the movie was clearly based on Street Fighter II!”, well I’ll say… it’s barely that, but yes reviewing SFII here would make more sense, but I already reviewed it! So why not review the game simply called “Street Fighter” alongside the film of the same name? Oh wait, I see why now… the first Street Fighter is crap. Oh well, so was the movie! Hooray!?
