The Walking Dead – Season 9 Part 2 Review

TWD S9 P2

How does The Walking Dead function without Rick Grimes? Well, not too badly, as it turns out. While the series certainly feels like its missing a central character to focus on, there are enough interesting characters and plot left that when combined with an interesting new enemy to face, it’s led to a good few episodes of TV. Not perfect by any means, but good. Let’s take a closer look.

DW: The Star Beast (Audio Version) Review

DW Star Beast

Well, this is odd! Only a few months ago I wrote a review for the original comic version of this story as part of the Audio/Comic Companion Debut Marathon, and now here I am reviewing the audio adaptation! Well, some of this review, particularly the look at the story itself, are copied and pasted from that, but with some extra thoughts on the audio side of things, obviously. So let’s once again take a look at “and the Star Beast”, or just “The Star Beast” for simplicities sake…

Mobile Suit Gundam: MS IGLOO 2 – The Gravity Front Review

Gundam MS IGLOO 2

Here we go then, let’s get this out of the w- … hang on, this is really good?! The first of the three episodes was actually great?! Well blow me down, this MS IGLOO OVA series is actually worth watching. I don’t know if it was worth sitting through the other two OVAs to get to it, but at least I feel I got something good out of the whole thing. Want to know more? Read on!

WCW vs. The World (PS1) Review

WCW vs The World

Here we are, the next entry of the Wrestling Game Rundown and it’s the game I mentioned in the previous entry as a game I was looking forward to, but a long delay led to much anger and impatience. Was it worth the wait, and what’s it like now? Let’s find out in what is the first of the later Godly AKI games, even if it’s very barebones, comparatively…

DW: The Iron Legion (Audio Version) Review

DW Iron Legion

Thought I was done with new Doctor Who releases this month? Ha! There is one more audio box to go through, and that starts with The Iron Legion (or “Doctor Who and The Iron Legion”, but that’s a bit of a mouthful…) Unlike the next story in the set, I haven’t gotten around to reviewing the comic this is adapted from on this site, but I know I will some day, so I’ve future proofed the title! Anyway, The Iron Legion is a crazy and very cartoony story in comic form, and I’m happy to say it’s just as crazy and cartoony in audio form as well! Let’s take a closer look, shall we?

DW: The Macra Terror Review

DW The Macra Terror

A week after the Season 18 Blu-ray release and we get an even more anticipated HD release for Doctor Who: another fully animated missing story, in this case The Macra Terror! Yes, I never thought I’d see the day… would be an understatement, even after the release of Power. So how does the animated version stack up, and how is the story overall? Well…

Mobile Suit Gundam: MS IGLOO OVA 2 – Apocalypse 0079 Review

MS Gundam IGLOO OVA2

Here we go again… *sigh*, and I mean that far more literally than I’d like, as for the most part these three episodes follow the exact same story as the three previous. More of the same cast of uninteresting characters, more prototype weaponry and more test pilots dying. Oh, and of course, more cheapo looking CGI! Hooray?! Let’s take a look at the second IGLOO OVA then, at least there’s only one left to go!

DW: Meglos Review

DW Meglos

Season 18 made its way to blu-ray this week, so as per usual I thought I’d review a story from the season to “celebrate”, so to speak. The big draw of the set is the new Special Edition of Logopolis, but given I’ve reviewed that already, I decided to go with the story I haven’t seen in the longest, which in this case was Meglos. Nearly 10 years since I last watched it and mentally wrote it off as “boring”, I actually enjoyed it more than that memory would‘ve had me believe. By how much? Well, let’s find out!

DW: The Kamelion Empire Review

DW Kamelion Empire

The Kamelion Empire is a story of two very clear halves, one is a moody tale going into the unique and interesting history of Kamelion’s people, and the second half a generic run-around with a very one-note sneering villain. The problem comes from the fact that this is supposed to be one story, not two like last month! Still, does the good outweigh the predictable? Let’s find out!
