Pokémon Black & White
Pokémon Black 2 & White 2

Well, this is a first – two VG Music Picks in one! Why is that? Well, since this is technically the 50th one of these I’ve done, I figured I’d do something a little special. Plus, I can’t really write about one of these music tracks without mentioning the other. So, let’s quickly look at the two themes belonging to the main villain of the 5th Generation of Pokémon games.

Last week, it was revealed that the upcoming Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon would mark the return of Team Rocket – now under the new guise of Team Rainbow Rocket – and will  consist of every main villain in the series thus far (at least in terms of the main games). Villainous team-ups are always great, so being able to see all these familiar antagonists return and getting another chance to kick their asses has got a lot of people excited, including me.

Battling the leaders of these diabolical organisations has always been the highlights of the series but, now that they’re all in a game together, how do they fare against each other? Which of them is as mighty as Mewtwo and who’s just as boring as Burmy? Let’s find out by subjecting them to a Random Ranking! Continue reading

The Truth About Kings Cross

Synopsis: A cleaner at King’s Cross has to deal with over-the-top Harry Potter fans all the time, unaware that their supposed magic is more real than he thinks.

Favourite Moments in Fiction #8 – Mabel Trusts Grunkle Stan (Gravity Falls)

WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Gravity Falls

‘Not What He Seems’ is undoubtedly one of Gravity Falls‘ best episodes; possibly the best. After spending so much time with the unscrupulous yet kindhearted Grunkle Stan, this episode managed to make myself and many others seriously question whether we really knew him. We’re essentially in the same positions as Dipper and Mabel. Continue reading

My VG Music Picks #49 – Footsteps of Time (Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth)

WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth

One of the many reasons why I struggled playing Persona Q was because of the labyrinths. Exploring them eventually became such a drag, even the music gradually became monotonous to listen to, even if they were suitably atmospheric. That’s why I was very pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the music for the final labyrinth. Continue reading
