I Am Gotham Review – Batman (2016) #1-6

This story doesn’t just introduce us to a new Batman run (well, I guess Batman: Rebirth did that) and a new Batman writer in Tom King (Grayson, The Vision). I Am Gotham also introduces two new superpowered superheroes, the flamboyant sounding duo of Gotham and Gotham Girl. For King this first story is all about setting up how he’s going to run the show, the sort of writing you can expect, and the tone of the book. Starting his run […]

Modern DC Films – Thoughts on Suicide Squad, The Killing Joke, Batman v Superman: Ultimate Edition, Assault on Arkham

Yeah, everyone knows that when it comes to films of comics Marvel has had more than just a little bit of an upperhand in recent years. Though it’s interesting to think that 2005’s Batman Begins ushered in perhaps a “new era” of superhero film. It’s also interesting to note that the oft though pinnacle of Nolan’s Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight, released in 2008, the same year Iron Man also kicked off the now mega successful Marvel Cinematic Universe. With […]

The Martian Review

I don’t really like films about space very much. Space, like the sea (a comparison which is also made in this film), is pretty scary. Generally a lot of “space films”, especially recently, like to play up that angle. And, when such a film is rooted in a lot of scientific fact, it makes it all the more chilling. This is how space really is and space is scary. I won’t say that The Martian completely eschews that angle — […]

DC: Universe Rebirth Review

I’m not the biggest fan of DC in the world. Heck, I’m not even sure I’d call myself a big comics fan. Sure, I do love many comic books, but as far as comic “universes” go? I don’t really care. I read runs people recommend me, I pick out specific graphic novels — I love the stories for what they are. DC: Universe Rebirth is the initial issue of DC’s new big crossover event, though it may not be the […]

Gaming Diary: Hitman Spectacular – Hitman 2016, Hitman: Blood Money, Hitman: Contracts, Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, and a Little Bit of Hitman Absolution

My, my, my, I’ve not updated this blog in a little while, but as you can tell, I’ve been a bit of a busy boy. Or should that be a busy MAN. A busy HITman, that is. My journey with the Hitman series started off with the PlayStation 2 version of Hitman: Blood Money. I made it to the fourth level, Flatline, and ended up stopping due to clunky controls and feeling like I didn’t know what was going on. […]

Gaming Diary: Firewatch, Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments, Earthbound, Twilight Princess HD, Yakuza

Whoa. Look at that title. Someone’s living on the cusp of video gaming entertainment, and that person is me. Kinda. Well, not at all, but I feel pretty good about experiencing so much new stuff. Well, new for me. And kinda new for everyone. Kinda sorta. Firewatch is legitimately new. I bought it not long after it came out in February, but only just got around to starting it this week. It’s been very much on my radar since seeing […]

Do I Like Racing Games Or Not? The DLC & Microtransaction Dilemna of the Modern Racer. Also Atelier Rorona Plus

I picked up Forza 5 in a recent sale after being greatly impressed by Forza Horizon 2. I didn’t shell out for the newer Forza 6, because while I like racing games, I don’t like them enough to pony up a large sum of money for them. They’re a smaller scale diversion for me, especially considering the growing issue I’ve had for them since last generation, which is their attachment to annoying DLC and microtransactions. It’s rare to pick up […]

Gaming Diary: Hitman Beta, Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator, Gears of War 2

This week was the kind of week that doesn’t end. So, I didn’t really have much time to play a whole load of stuff. But the stuff I did play was kinda intense, so that was good. I played the Hitman Beta. That’s the Beta for the new Hitman, which is just called Hitman. I’ve always kind of liked the Hitman games, but I’ve never been that good at them. I find the old ones a little tough to play […]

Gaming Diary: Naruto, The Witness, Hand of Fate, Gears of War, Persona 2

This a new thing I’m doing. If I barely do anything one week, or it’s really uninteresting, I might not write about it. I’ll skip over boring stuff or whatever. Though as I work in the gaming industry you’d hope I’d have some stuff to say now and then. Which is the point of this blog I suppose! I spent a lot of this week playing Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4. I lapsed on the Manga partway through the […]

Gears of War Ultimate Edition Review – A Bad Remaster

Besides a brief stint playing the opening of Gears of War 2 at a friend’s, and Gears of War 3 multiplayer for a bit at another friend’s (I was terrible at it), Gears of War Ultimate Edition is my first proper attempt at getting into the Gears of War series. After getting an Xbox One, it only seemed to make sense to get some Xbox exclusives under my belt, especially when buying it within the period in which I did […]
