Attack on Titan – The Final Season (Episodes 76 – 87) Review

Attack on Titan’s final sea- … oh, right, the second half of Attack on Titan’s final sea- … Oh, okay then. The second third of the Attack on Titan’s final season was full of fun plot twists and really delved deep into the lore of the series, so much so that despite me poking fun at the “Final Season” now being three seasons long I’m happy they didn’t have to rush anything. So after a delay of a month or so let’s finally get a review up!

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (PS2) / Grand Theft Auto: Vice City – Definitive Edition (PS4) Review

Continuing my nostalgic tour through my late teens with the PS2 era GTA games as well as playing through the recently released “Definitive Editions”, it’s time for Vice City! Steeped in 80s culture and films (especially Scarface…) Vice City also saw several firsts for the franchise, including a fully voiced main protagonist! Let’s take a look at both versions and see how they either stand up today, or if they’re actually any good to begin with…

Doctor Who: Back to Earth – Station to Station & The False Dimitry Review

Ignoring the obvious joke about having a boxset titled “Back to Earth” when most of the Ninth Doctor’s audio run so far has been entirely set ON Earth (including the previous two-part finale) let’s take a look at the first two stories of Mr. Eccleston’s second audio drama run, shall we?

Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai (Episodes 51 – 67) Review

I was going to open with a joke about it being nearly time to review another load of episodes (because yes, the series is somehow still going strong…) but thanks to a certain Toei Animation hacking incident the show went off the air for a month, so this review actually isn’t that far behind despite the delay of finishing it on my end. So, Adventure of Dai, eh? Yes, I really want to put “looks like its entered its final arc” but I’ve made that mistake before, so let’s just say “thinks have picked up” and leave it at that…

Doctor Who: Mind of the Hodiac Review

Mind of the Hodiac is an interesting curio, it’s not a “Lost Story” in any way that the sub series has explored before, instead it’s a piece of fan fiction that Russell T. Davies wrote as a teenager that he found in a drawer. Admittedly given RTD’s contributions to Doctor Who having what is essentially his first script turned into a story is a fun idea, but it’s still not exactly fitting in with the Lost Stories theme. Still, is it any good? Well erm… not really? Let’s take a look!

The Walking Dead – Vol. 7 & 8: “The Calm Before” and “Made to Suffer” Review

(Note: This was written a few months ago so it’s still in the old review format. Oh well, at least all of Omnibus 1 will match!) Never before has a title rang quite as true as Volume 7 “The Calm Before” because, yeah… Volume 8 is a hell of a thing, that’s for sure. It’s no wonder the comic fans at the time were so upset with how the finale of the Prison story arc was handled at the end of Season 3, and even when they tried to recoup it in 4. It’s nothing like the shocking sudden onslaught that happens here… So let’s take a look!

Moon Knight Review

Moon Knight is the latest MCU Disney Plus TV effort, and at only six parts with a top Hollywood name at its core in Oscar Isaac it really felt like an MCU film stretched to double the length (though with more talking / character development than you normally get in the movies, obviously!) It was actually really good, though it was definitely carried on the shoulders of its lead rather than the writing or anything being the stand-out. Let’s take a deeper look, anyway…

Doctor Who: Stranded 4 – The Keys of Baker Street & Best Year Ever Review

The Stranded run of Eighth Doctor stories reaches its conclusion… I was going to put “epic conclusion” but that wouldn’t be right, for better or worse. Without giving too much away the key plot point of Stranded gets resolved in the “The Keys of Baker Street” and what we have for a finale is a rather more tame epilogue that I’ll be honest didn’t really work for me. Want to know more? Read on!

Doctor Who: Stranded 4 – Crossed Lines & Get Andy Review

The often divisive Stranded sub-series reaches its final phase and with a set that is no less divisive, though most of that comes in the second half. As for these first two episodes? Well, they continue the time and alternate Earth shenanigans with The Doctor, his companions, his neighbours and a near-immortal time-travelling moody teenager / evil despot named Robin. Let’s take a look!
