• Movie Review: Is ‘Mortal Kombat’ A Flawless Victory?

    
 Once upon a time it was a universal truth that, with little to no exceptions, movies based on video games were guaranteed to suck. And vice versa. Gradually, however, film adaptations of video game properties became at least watchable. Some might even say good. In recent years we’ve seen decent live-action films based on […]

  • Movie Review: ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ Might Surprise You

    
 Hollywood seems to be creatively bankrupt as of late. The entire movie landscape primarily consists of remakes, reboots, and sequels – with nary an original idea in sight. Which wouldn’t be too bad if the films themselves had any integrity or passion felt in them, but most of them seem more like shameless phoned-in […]

  • Review: Is Gnosia Really Worth The Hype?

    
 Since its localization announcement in a Nintendo Direct at the end of last year, I’ve been pumped to play a somewhat obscure Switch port of an offbeat Japanese visual novel-esque puzzle thriller set in space. Or rather, a ” Sci-Fi Social Deduction RPG”, according to its description on Nintendo’s official website. The game is […]

  • Review: Don’t Believe The Hype, ‘The Haunting Of Bly Manor’ Is As Lifeless As A Corpse

    
 When The Haunting of Hill House premiered on Netflix in 2018, I was one of many viewers shouting its praise from the rooftop. As a horror aficionado, I appreciated how it merged the genre with a thoughtful approach to family drama and social commentary, whilst still never losing sight of its horror roots. Created, […]

  • Review: ‘Crash Bandicoot 4’ Fails To Move The Series Forward

    
 The Crash Bandicoot series seems like it’s been warped into hyperdrive as of late. Not only did the original trilogy receive a massive makeover that was so successful it revived fellow platforming series Spyro, but it even led to somewhat of a renaissance of remakes including Crash’s own Team Racing game. Finally, with his […]

  • Review: ‘Kirby Fighters 2’ Is A Smash Bros. Clone, But Is That A Bad Thing?

    
 Everyone’s favorite pink puff, Kirby, is back on the Nintendo Switch! But if you’re expecting a proper follow-up to 2018’s Kirby Star Allies, you’ll need to temper your expectations. Kirby Fighters 2 is instead a follow-up to the 3DS downloadable title, Kirby Fighters Deluxe, which itself was an expansion on a mini-game from the […]

  • Review: ‘Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous’ Is A Boring Mess Of A Show

    
 When Michael Crichton first began writing the novel Jurassic Park, he probably knew it would be popular, but it’s hard to imagine even he would have predicted it becoming one of the most well-known and profitable media franchises in the world, rivaling even that of Star Wars and Marvel. But alas, in the immortal […]

  • Review: Is ‘Super Mario 3D All-Stars’ Everything We Hoped For?

    
 It’s finally here. After years of waiting and months of rumors, Super Mario 3D All-Stars has arrived. The moment Nintendo announced the surprise release of not one, not two, but three of the greatest 3D platformers of all time, and Mario titles no less, in one package, was a surreal moment. It felt both […]

  • Review: Does ‘Paper Mario: Origami King’ Take The Throne?

    
 Given his consistent choice in wardrobe, you could be forgiven for not knowing that Mario is a man who wears many different hats. Over the years he has starred in countless spin-offs, some of which, like Mario Kart, have gone on to become full-fledged series in their own rights. And others, like Mario Paint, […]
