I managed to play a lot of Marvel’s Spider-Man over the past few days. Long story short: you Spider-Man fans are going to enjoy it. But instead of doing a conventional review (because everyone’s giving in 8s and 9s), how about I bring up my 8 favourite Spider Suits -in no particular order- in the game that you can unlock?
Why 8? Because spiders have 8 legs. Sounds rad? Let’s web swing!
Disclaimer: this post is spoiler-free. Unless you think Spider Suits are spoiler material, then I can’t help you out.
Adventure Time is an ambitious show that balances its fantastical absurdities with long-spanning narratives. In-between the 10-minute episodic adventures concerning (mis)adventures of Jake the dog and Finn the human lies a looming war between the Candy Kingdom and the nation of Gumbaldia.
Adaptations are a tricky thing to pull off. Steer too far from its source material and you get an alien product that may not gel with its target audience. Stay too close to the source word for word, and you’ll chase off people who want to see a different directorial take on the subject matter.
It’s been a while since we’ve done video games, eh?
Nintendo recently sold over 20 million units of the Switch; congratulations! That’s definitely a far cry from the sales numbers of the Wii U, which is probably the worst-selling console next to the Virtual Boy.
Disenchantment’s coming out this week on Netflix. Let’s hit them SEOs, shall we?
The Simpsons: what’s there to say apart from the fact that the show is a cultural juggernaut?
“Swimming with Men” stars Rob Brydon as accountant Eric Scott anguishing through a mid-life crisis. He fends off his daily misery by regularly escaping to swim at a public pool. There he meets the “Swim Club”, a group of middle-aged male synchronised swimmers. They coerce him into joining, which reinvigorates Eric to find happiness and meaning again. Directed by Oliver Parker, will it make a splash at the box-office or end up face down in the shallow end?Read More
It’s close to the middle of 2018, and there really isn’t a major JRPG release that wowed and challenged me since Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Yes, there was Ni no Kuni 2 which we reviewed a while back, but it isn’t as gripping and as challenging as I thought it would be despite its highlights.
Then Nintendo and Atlus (and Sega, technically) decide to release the English version of Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux without much fanfare. I honestly didn’t know about this until late last week.
That’s a crying shame because it’s the best JRPG right now and a perfect entry point for people who are too scared or daunted by the Shin Megami Tensei slew of JRPGs.
Thanks to Shaw Cinema for the free preview.
The best way to sum up the children’s movie Show Dogs is to recount what a couple said to each other once leaving the theatre. “This was a free movie, right?” Thankfully it was because spending money on this movie might be considered a criminal offence. It is the particular kind of bad that goes beyond merely being a lazy cash-grab. This movie is well and truly mindboggling.Read More
“Batman Ninja” is now available today in digital formats! Arriving stealthily under the shadow of the box-office juggernaut “Avengers: Infinity War”. This new animated feature is a wild departure from the usual caped crusader fare. Taking the Dark Knight back in time to feudal Japan, where battles The Joker, as well as other notable villains in the age of the samurai. All the while also looking for a way back home to the present time. This review contains minor spoilers.Read More
