Obi-Wan Kenobi Review

Well, it’s been teased for literally years but it finally arrived: Ewan McGregor reprising his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in a story set in between the Prequel and Original trilogies. It didn’t stop there though! Darth Vader / Anakin (played by Hayden Christensen no less), live action Inquisitors and even child versions of Luke and Leia.  Throw in some amazing scenes I can’t talk about until the Spoiler section and I was one pleased Star Wars fan!

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot (PS4) Review

While I finally do have a plan in place to cover the many Dragon Ball games in my collection on this blog including this game would mean reviewing it a good few years from now so I’d rather review it now after I’ve just played it, especially since there is still more than enough DB games to cover for that eventual plan as it is. So yeah, I finally played DBZ Kakarot at the start of the year after the complete collection was on sale for roughly £10 digitally. The combat didn’t look inspiring and the story was just the same-old so I didn’t get it at launch, despite free-roaming the Dragon Ball world sounding very fun. Were my instincts correct? Let’s find out!

Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 – Season 2 Review

After being less than impressed over Season 1 of this CG addition to the Stand Alone Complex series I wasn’t in a hurry to get round to Season 2, released nearly two years later. Still, looking back at the old review one of the things I did say was that the plot did pick up towards the end and I was interested in seeing where it was going, so did it end up going anywhere interesting? Let’s find out!

Doctor Who: Wink Review

The next, and final (for now…) release in the makeshift-titled “Out of Time” range sees the Tenth Doctor end up encountering his Sixth self, but unlike the previous two stories this was actually a great stand-alone Weeping Angels story that happens to feature two Doctors, where as the other two stories felt they were very much created just around the concept of it being a multi-Doctor story. Let’s take a look!

Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters Review

War of the Bounty Hunters was the big tie-in event of 2021 Star Wars comics and crossed over into all of their non-High Republic series, namely the main Star Wars comic, Darth Vader, Doctor Aphra and Bounty Hunters, plus it had its own five issue event series to top it off. This is a general look at the whole event, and I have to say that overall while it had its moments there were a hell of a lot of issues for what really was just one scene. Was it a good scene at least? Let’s find out!

Doctor Who: Battlegrounds – The Keeper of Light & Temmosus Review

The War Doctor Begins side-range continues with another trio of stories, the first two of which don’t feel very Time War-y, where as the third is very Time War-y, so it was an easy decision how to split this box into two! This doesn’t mean the stories in this half of the set’s review are bad per say, but more that given the setting it seemed like something of a waste. Let’s take a look!

Doctor Who: The Ravencliff Witch Review

Still trying to play catch-up with all the Big Finish releases since I took my break, and with a LOT coming out in June, I thought I’d double up some reviews in their paired boxsets just to “get them out of the way” without going too long without some variety of reviews going up.

While I really enjoyed Blood of the Time Lords sadly The Ravencliff Witch was quite the opposite, it was rather dull and predictable and the debut of future new companion Margaret was not well done (it’s very clear she wasn’t planned to be a recurring character at this point!) Throw in a really hard-on-the-eyes cover and it’s not a great outing for the Fourth Doctor, but let’s take a closer look anyway!

Doctor Who: Blood of the Time Lords Review

The Fourth Doctor Adventures for this year are set while The Doctor is travelling alone, which is a rare setting for this particular incarnation, and the first story is a really strong outing set entirely in a library on a moon of Gallifrey, which is also a unique and very fun setting but sadly it also features the cancelled-due-to-being-a-twat James Dreyfus incarnation of the Master… Oh well, let’s take a look!
