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!?

The Diary of River Song – Series 6 Episodes 1 and 2 Review

DORS S6 P1

The Sixth Series of the Diary of River Song is based around our titular character arriving in the middle of some classic adventures from the first four Doctors, with these first two being set just before the very first episode, and during the Second Doctor’s TV classic “The Web of Fear” respectively. Let’s see if this different format gets off to a good start or not, shall we?

Super Mario Maker 2 (Switch) Review

SMM2

During my turbulent summer this was the perfect game to get released for me, as it was easy to dip in and out of, be it handheld or full screen. It feels like a massive game, but in reality it’s a pretty simple level creator tool, but it lends itself to so many creative ideas that it will last a long, long time. So let’s take a look!
