Avengers Academy Review

Avengers Academy is a beautiful game on mobile with lots of little details and references for fans of the series…but it is barely a game and has so little interactivity that its transparent they are hoping to hook a few whales on the F2P model based off the strength of the franchise. Don’t be one of their whales.

Firewatch Review

Emersion is important to Firewatch. If you only play the game to get to the next point on the map, you are missing the point. This is a stop and smell the roses experience – the journey is as important as the destination (and other clichés regarding travel describe the experience of Firewatch perfectly).

Kung Fu Panda 3 Review

The film is able to remain enjoyable throughout due to the charisma and likability of Po – even when is in the most precarious or powerful position he is geeking out over the absurdity of the world and the audience can’t help but get caught up in his dynamic charm.

Saturday Morning RPG: Review

Do you want to experience your 80’s nostalgia adventure with a sidequest of 80’s, plus 80’s dripping all over and then random 80’s quotes, factoids and callbacks thrown in for fun? If you responded with bodacious, righteous or schweet then you are the target audience for Saturday Morning RPG.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: Pilot Review

The first episode has the herculean feat of trying to setup 9 independent characters, the weight of the mission and the tone for the series – unfortunately it probably fails at all of these.

Beautiful Bones – Season 1: Review

If you like quirky characters or ever wanted to see the anime version of Bones than this show is worth trying - if you like the first episode, you’ll enjoy the rest of the season. If you prefer a season to have a clearly defined arc and progression, than this is one mystery not worth solving.

Star Wars Battlefront: Review

Star Wars Battlefront is a well designed, beautiful and meticulously crafted game that any fan of the franchise will be thrilled to play with…for a few hours. The lack of variety and repetitive nature of battles make this an easy rental, but a difficult game to recommend for purchase.

Xenoblade Chronicles X: Review

You might find Xenoblade Chronicles X in the JRPG section of most sites, but make no mistake this is truly an open world game. The land is massive, there are millions of nooks and crannies to explore, doodads and widgets line the land waiting for you to collect and you’ll go over the same spots with new equipment just to make sure you didn’t miss anything.

The Force Awakens: Review

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens is a return to form for the franchise - its exciting to reunite with old friends, bond with new heroes and lay the groundwork for the next great saga in a galaxy far, far away...even if parts of the story feel like a remixed version of what came before it.

Ant-Man Review

I want to love Ant-Man (maybe I’ve fallen to the Marvel brainwashing) but I don’t. It is a solidly good movie with great scenes but odd pacing, character choices and distracting MCU connections which drag it down.
