2020 was a weird year, but for games it was pretty much business as usual (if not bigger business than usual due to so many people staying at home!) and the same goes with my experience with them. I played quite a few 2020 games this year, but once again I lost a couple of months to a Super Robot Wars game, plus I played a lot of older games thanks to both the Games to Movie marathon and the “Scrolling Sundays” weekly feature. That’s not me complaining, for the record! Just explaining why some big releases are missing (with the exception of The Last of Us Part 2, which I didn’t end up getting due to having a bunch of things spoiled for me by whiny idiots… Stupid internet! *shakes fist*), and with that: let’s take a look!Continue reading
It’s time for one of the more unique yearly features on this blog: The Top 10 Doctor Who stories list! Again, taking in stories from the TV show and audio (plus two books this year… neither of them made the top 10, but they were in the running!) there is a surprising amount to shift through. So without further ado: Let’s… ado? (that doesn’t work… whatever.)Continue reading
Another year, another set of three Top 10s! This year saw a lot of films and a few TV series get delayed due to a certain global pandemic, but thankfully (for this list, it matters little compared to the death of over a million people, for the record…) there was enough that I can create another Top 10! Much like every year I’d like to point out that this is the Top 10 of the series I’ve watched, I don’t claim to have watched everything, or even a lot really… Still, fun to do, so let’s get on it!Continue reading
Well, after a few weeks of playing “catch up”, it’s finally time to rank all the Doctor Who Christmas specials that have appeared on TV and audio (I’d love to include some of the comics, but they don’t appear in collected Graphic Novels, seemingly…) To make one thing clear, this list takes into account how good of a Christmas story it is as much as how good of a story it is in general. Basically, “which Christmas story do I think is the best to stick on Christmas Day?” Let’s find out!Continue reading
So this is a big one… I mean literally, making the 30 thumbnails was a pain in the arse, but I just couldn’t nail it down to just 20, and when I did 25 I thought of five more I could easily talk about and went “screw it!”. Hell, I could have easily gone to 50. So with that all being said (and the usual “these are only game I’ve played so I’m sure there are many great games left off this list” message) let’s go!
While I’m one of those people who likes to remind people that there was no “0 AD” and therefore a decade is actually 1-10, I do also understand its far easier to say 1990 is the start of the 90s than to say the 1980s ends with 1990, so with that being said: Here are my picks for Top 20 TV Series of the 2010s! Hooray! A mix of genuine praise along with other things like nostalgia and influence, this list is, once again, just my opinion and therefore there are undoubtedly many, MANY shows I never watched that are therefore not on this list. Let’s begin, shall we?
Another year, another struggle to find 10 games released in 2019 I actually played. So once again look forward to wondering why I didn’t mention “Major game release X”, the answer of which is “I’m just one man, full-time employed, so I don’t have that much time to play loads of games”. Especially when non-2019 games Super Robot Wars V and Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey ate up so much of my gaming time this year… Anyway, enjoy!
2019 was a weird year for Doctor Who stories, as there was only a single, solitary episode on January 1st, meaning this list is pretty much entirely Big Finish (I’m always behind on the comics I’m afraid). Still, which Big Finish was best? Did their anniversary release come up big? Did the one TV episode place at all?! Let’s find out!
Another year gone, and time for another trio of Top 10s! It’s only December 30th as I upload these, but the reason for that will become clear tomorrow! So without further ado, here are my top 10 TV series (or seasons, if you like) of 2019, as always baring in mind there are plenty I missed out on (like the Mandalorian… Thanks for not launching Disney+ here yet, Disney! *grumble grumble*) so these lists are, fittingly given its my blog, just what I’ve actually seen…
Last year The War Master took the top spot, a story that didn’t even feature The Doctor at all… This year? Well… It may not be as different as I’d have hoped, especially given 10 new TV episodes and some good offerings from Big Finish that don’t feature Derek Jacobi, but….
