• Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore Review: Fire Emblem Meets Persona In Nintendo Switch Crossover

    The Nintendo Switch is a hybrid in more ways than one. So is Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore, which combines gameplay elements of Atlus’ Shin Megami Tensei with characters from Nintendo’s Fire Emblem series (particularly the original Fire Emblem and Awakening). The recently released Encore edition of the game is a slightly enhanced port of […]

  • ‘The Mandalorian’ Episode 8 Review: Disappointingly Satisfying Finale To First Season

    The first season of The Mandalorian has finally aired to completion. That’s right, the show that almost singlehandedly carried Disney’s streaming service during its launch is over for the time being. Sure, the second season is already underway, but for now, this is it. I’ve been a champion of the series since its debut, but […]

  • Netflix’s ‘Witcher’ Series Brings Dark European Folklore To Life

    Netflix is approaching a critical juncture. The streaming company is facing more competition than ever, not only from the likes of Hulu and Amazon Prime, but also Disney Plus. Not to mention data that shows a rollercoaster of extreme highs and lows in both subscription rate and stock growth, it’s no secret that the once-dominant […]

  • ‘The Mandalorian’ Episode 7 Review: Disney’s Breakout Hit Starts Breaking Bad

    At the end of my review for the previous episode of The Mandalorian, I speculated about how the show would handle wrapping up this season. So far, it’s seemed content to give us a steady flow of essentially self-contained stories. Past the third episode, you could probably watch a lot of the season out of […]

  • ‘Rise of Skywalker’ Review: Star Wars Finale Suffers From A Great Disturbance In The Force

    It wasn’t supposed to be like this. Disney could do no wrong when it acquired Lucasfilm back in 2012. The House of Mouse had led Marvel Studios to dominate the box office and was on a roll with animated hits both out of Pixar and its own in-house animation studies; logic would dictate that Star […]

  • ‘The Mandalorian’ Episode 6 Review: Bill Burr In Space

    The sixth episode of The Mandalorian is another self-contained story chronicling the adventures of everyone’s favorite bounty hunter on the run. Directed by Rick Famuyiwa, this latest installment of the Star Wars spin-off series spins a good yarn. Baby Yoda plays an even smaller role here than it did in the previous episode, but once […]

  • ‘The Mandalorian’ Episode 5 Review: Star Wars Is Dewback, Baby!

    There are so many beautiful scenes that will tug on your nostalgic strings in the fifth episode of The Mandalorian, it would almost be considered gratuitous if it wasn’t done so organically well. None of it feels extra, it just feels right. Warning: There are spoilers past this point. As soon as Mando steps foot […]

  • ‘Dusk Diver’ Review: Taiwan Takes The Spotlight In Anime-Themed Brawler

    Having lived and worked in Taiwan for over half a decade, I was very excited for the release of Dusk Diver on Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PC. The hack-and-slash title from JFI Games looked promising, and video game developers based in Taiwan have surprised the gaming community with recent gems like Detention, Devotion, and OPUS: […]

  • ‘Loserthink’ Review: Scott Adams Returns With Another Non-Dilbert Book

    Growing up in the 90s, I was all too familiar with the famous comic strip Dilbert. However, being an elementary school student at the time, its workplace humor wasn’t as appealing to me as, say, Garfield‘s lasagna-loving antics. It wasn’t until my teenage years that I begin to appreciate Dilbert creator Scott Adams’ humor, mostly […]

  • ‘The Mandalorian’ Episode 4 Review: Return Of The World-Building

    Another week, another satisfying episode of The Mandalorian goes by. The fourth chapter of Disney’s popular Star Wars spin-off is directed by none other than Jurassic World and Black Mirror actress Bryce Dallas Howard. Luckily, she was given a better script to work with than her father Ron Howard was when he directed the ill-fated […]
