The Entertainment Dome Episode 95 – How NOT To Sell An Online Service

Last week on The Entertainment Dome, James and I had a surprisingly brief recap of the last couple of Attack on Titan episodes (which were disgusting, BTW), before moving on to a bunch of the announcements from the latest Nintendo Direct.

WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for RWBY Volume 5

We may still have over a month until Volume 6 starts but I’m not leaving this year’s RWBY review until the last minute like previous years. Yep, it’s high time I got round to reviewing Volume 5, a season that my Entertainment Dome co-host and I didn’t exactly have the highest opinion of during its initial run.

But have those opinions changed? Is Volume 5 actually a lot better on its second viewing? Or is it still deserving of all the criticism we gave it? How about we just cut straight to chase and begin the review. Continue reading

Favourite Moments in Fiction #14 – The Deadpool Level (Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions)

WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions

The new Spider-Man game for PS4 has, at the time of writing, recently come out and has been a massive success, and for good reasons. It’s a fantastic game and possibly the best game to star Marvel’s web-slinging superhero. But for all the praise it’s getting, there’s still one other Spider-Man game that continues to hold a special place in my heart; one that I never see anyone else talk about – Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions.

My VG Music Picks #66 – Tomorrow Hill/Falling Off Tomorrow Hill (WarioWare: Smooth Moves)

There is a surprising amount of vocal tracks in the WarioWare series. I dunno, I just find that strange; I never would have pegged a series like this to get that kind of content. But, these lyrical pieces are not only quite fitting but are easily some of the most popular and memorable music tracks from the series (probably because they last more than five seconds).

And while there’s a certain little witch whose theme song reigns supreme above the rest, I want to shift the focus to another one for the time being – specifically Tomorrow Hill from the Wii title, Smooth Moves. Continue reading

Five Franchises That Should Get a Warriors/Musou Spin-Off

Koei Tecmo and Omega Force kind of struck gold when they first created the Dynasty Warriors series back in 1997. It was such a simple formula that, despite being criticised by some for being TOO simple, found itself a very devoted fan-base. Nowadays there are so many bloody spin-offs of not just the main series but also ones centered around other franchises like Fist of the North Star, The Legend of Zelda and Fire Emblem to name a few.

I personally don’t have much experience with the series but I’ve enjoyed what games I have played because they’re flashy, satisfying and just overall fun to play. So naturally I want to see other franchises get a similar treatment. Let’s run through five of them right now, shall we? Continue reading

My VG Music Picks #65 – Bomb Rush Blush/Tidal Rush (Splatoon 2)

WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Splatoon 2

I don’t know what I expected from Splatoon 2‘s single player mode. I guess I always figured it’d just be more of the same aside from one or two new additions. And, for the most part, that’s pretty much what I got. That being said, I was curious as to what the new final boss would be so I was initially disappointed that it was essentially the same boss from the first game. Fortunately, not only was this version much better in my opinion but it had even better music accompanying it. Continue reading

WarioWare Gold – Glorious, Gaming Goodness or Just Gross?

H2x1_3DS_WarioWareGold_image1600w

I never realised how much I missed playing WarioWare games until I tried out the demo for the latest entry – WarioWare Gold. It was like meeting up with an old friend you hadn’t seen in years and finding out that you’re still on the same wavelength and have a fun time together. And considering the last WarioWare game came out in 2013 (assuming you even count Game & Wario, that is), I feel that comparison is perfectly apt.

But is WarioWare Gold deserving of that name? Is it the game that long-time fans have been waiting for? Or is it just like Wario himself and full of hot air? How about I stop asking rhetorical questions and we get on with the review. Continue reading
