This is hands down my favorite version of Thanatos in pop culture. His Picaro version in Persona 5 is pretty cool too.

This is my first Supergiant game, so I really didn’t know what I was walking into with Hades. The thing that really stood out starting out was how integral the soundtrack is to the experience, probably more than most games. It’s hard to describe, but the more you play, the more you begin to pick up the little hooks Read more

I have no idea why “Rise of the Shield Hero” and “That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime” weren’t even suggested. Read more

Not really, I’m half joking. It’s mostly Twitter if I make a comment that goes against the consensus or I throw out a hot take. Most of the comments around these parts tend to be more constructive. Even the last review I did for Tower of God, comments leaned towards the conversational variety. I did have one guy try Read more

I prefer physical (bonus if its slightly cheaper), but this might be the year I embrace digital with the virus going around. Recently, I bought Ghost of Tsushima digitally, and found it much more convenient than popping a disc open. While I don’t see myself dumping physical completely, I’m starting to see the appeal Read more

Back when this series aired, my knowledge of Re:Zero began and ended with the two maids and everyone seemingly dunking on Subaru. Not gonna lie, I held off on starting it for the longest time until word of a dub started flying around and I just took the plunge. For context, I wasn’t even aware of Emilia’s existence

My apologies, I literally just pulled up an image at the time of writing without thinking it. I went ahead and swapped out the cover.

Oh God, why does everything have to be so dramatic? This sucks. And I’m bored. Please don’t make me watch another one.” Read more

I was going to say either Horizon: Zero Dawn, as I was severely disappointed it was yet another generic, open world sandbox game or Astral Chain every time the action slowed down. But then I remember I tried Borderlands 2, which tested my patience at every opportunity. Aside from wanting to brutally murder Claptrack, Read more

On the one hand, it would be nice to be able to view “everything” under one banner similar to what we had in VRV. On the other, this would secure Sony as THE one stop shop for anime, and that could have all sorts of implications down the road. Read more

This is a valid take. My biggest takeaway from ToG is it’s paid advertisement for Crunchyroll to try and compete with their competitors rather than a passion project for them (excluding the team who actually worked on it, of course). New IPs are always a risk, especially since this is the first project coming from a Read more

As a non-sports person, this is really well detailed. This is one of those series that’s all the rage yet somehow has eluded my grasp for one reason or another, so this is an interesting dissection for someone with next to no knowledge. Read more
