On the most recent episode of The Entertainment Dome, I opened it up with a monologue about Masahiro Sakurai announcing that Piranha Plant would be a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It was just something silly I came up with and I figured I may as well upload it here as well for you to read since I’m kind of low-key proud of it. So enjoy a very over-dramatic interpretation of the announcement. Continue reading
This week on The Entertainment Dome, we actually get to talk about the first episode of RWBY Volume 6 this time, but not before going through all those juicy new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate details (apologies for the drilling sounds in the background).
WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Super Mario Odyssey
It’s been over a year since Mario made his debut on the Switch with what is easily not just one of, if not the, best Super Mario game ever made, but one of the best games ever period. You only have to take a cursory glance at Super Mario Odyssey‘s success to know this. It was a game stuffed with content – things to do, places to explore and challenges to complete, but never once did it feel bloated. It was brimming with imagination and just really fun to play. It was an adventure befitting its title of ‘odyssey,’ bursting with so many memorable moments. Continue reading
This week on the Entertainment Dome, James’ plans to talk about the first episode of RWBY Volume 6 are shot down due to me not watching it (oops) so we make up for it by sharing our opinions on the first four episodes of the new JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure series and the new season of Doctor Who (apologies for the audio peaking).
WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4
For those of you who are paying attention, yes, I AM being incredibly childish, but with this being the 69th VG Music Pick, I felt like I had to pick a fitting piece of music. And if you don’t know why, Google it. But keep Safe Search on, just in case. Though, despite its title, this music piece is anything but sexy. Continue reading
WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Gravity Falls
Here’s something that I’ve been meaning to write for a very long time. And with it being the week of Halloween, now is the perfect time to remind you all that Gravity Falls was a damn scary cartoon when it wanted to be. While the show saw twins Dipper and Mabel regularly dealing with all manner of paranormal phenomena during their summer vacation, they were usually just kind of weird and occasionally more humorous than threatening, like the surprisingly sophisticated Multi-Bear or the living videogame character Rumble McSkirmish.
But every once in a while, viewers would be subjected to something surprisingly and effectively creepy and/or terrifying. I’m still baffled that Disney allowed creator Alex Hirsch and the rest of the staff to include some of these monsters.
I’ve already praised the show in my review of it but let’s go deeper into the strange woods of this quiet Oregon town and get a good look at what I consider to be the scariest beings in Gravity Falls. Continue reading
Last week on The Entertainment Dome, we wrapped up our Attack on Titan recaps with the last two episodes before the season hiatus, and James wasn’t impressed with a certain casting choice for the Witcher Netflix show, which led to me going on a very weird soapbox rant.
WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for the following:
Pokémon Black & White
Pokémon Black 2 & White 2
While this track technically appeared in Pokémon Black & White first, I decided to focus on the version that appeared in the sequel games since 1. it’s the version that’s on the official OSTs and 2. I think this version’s way creepier, which is fitting given what month I’m writing this in. However, I will be writing about the context the music is used from the first games since, well, that’s where said context comes from and it isn’t really touched upon all that much in the sequels. Anyway, enough rambling, let’s move on. Continue reading
The announcement of a brand new, wholly original Spider-Man game being developed by Insomniac Games got a lot of people, including me, very excited. It had felt like it had been ages since we got something like this – a console super-hero game that wasn’t just a cash-grab tie-in to a new movie or TV show. Everything about it looked promising and I felt like this could herald in a new age of high-quality superhero games. And judging by this game’s success, I think it’s safe to say that might just be the case.
Unless you’ve just not been paying attention, it’s no secret that Spider-Man (or Marvel’s Spider-Man – they seriously needed a better name) has been positively received. What was expected to be a moderate success has become Sony’s fastest selling first-party game ever and its first month’s sales beat the likes of God of War and Uncharted 4. It’s a good game is what I’m saying.
Honestly, I probably don’t even need to write a review about it. I’ll tell you right now; all the positive reception you’ve heard is right. If you have a PS4, this is a must buy. But, you know what, this game is SO good that I need to gush about it regardless. So rather than posit the question “Is Spider-Man on PS4 a good game?,” let’s discuss WHY it’s good. Continue reading
Last week on The Entertainment Dome, James lets me ramble about some of the newest Kingdom Hearts III info before he gets excited over that leaked Harry Potter game and we share our thoughts on the latest Into the Spider-Verse trailer (sorry for the audio peaking).
