This week on The Entertainment Dome, we wrap up our thoughts on this year’s E3 with a look at the announcements from Bethesda, Ubisoft, Sony and Nintendo.
A new Super Smash Bros. game is on the way, which means the Internet is rife once more with debates and theories as to which new characters will get the chance to duke it out with Nintendo’s greatest all-stars. Though now the discussion has changed slightly thanks to the introduction of Echo Fighters.
While it might just be a fancy new term for the long maligned clone characters, people seem to have accepted this idea with fondness. This feature means we can have new characters easily join the roster as glorified palette swaps while still retaining their original personalities. So far, we have Lucina, Dark Pit and newcomer Daisy acting as Echo Fighters for Marth, Pit and Peach respectively, and fans are already wondering if we’ll see any more show up.
Of course, I have some ideas of my own that I’d love to see. So even if we don’t get any new, original characters, here are ten Echo Fighters whose inclusion would make me more than happy to see. Continue reading
E3 may be long over but James and I still have our own opinions to share with you. Besides, it’s tradition. So relax and enjoy the first part of this year’s E3 recap, where we cover EA and Microsoft’s press conferences (apologies for the audio issues).

Fun fact – I was originally planning to write about the scene in Metroid: Other M where Ridley appears to tie-in with last week’s VG Music Pick but, after re-watching it, I realised it wasn’t as good as I remember it being. But I wanted to do something Ridley-related so let’s quickly talk about the time he got one-shotted by Pikachu. Continue reading
One thing we can always look forward to in a Metroid game is the inevitable fight with Ridley. No matter where Samus is or what she’s doing, chances are this big, purple, space dinosaur’s going to rear his ugly head and we get to enjoy putting him in the ground again. Hell, he’s so popular that they added him as an extra boss in the Metroid II remake for 3DS. And when Ridley shows up, he brings that famous theme music with him as well. Continue reading

Three weeks ago, I wrote a list of my ten favourite episodes of the Justice League cartoon. If you recall, in that article, I mentioned I would be giving its sequel show, Justice League Unlimited, it’s own list. This is that list.
JLU is a slightly different beast compared to the previous show. Stories were more self-contained, with most of them being wrapped up within a single episode. The cast was even larger, with the League having expanded to feature even more of DC’s impressive and eclectic cast of superheroes, introducing us to the likes of Green Arrow, Vixen, The Question and many more. But one thing didn’t change – the show’s dedication to tell interesting, dramatic and overall well-written stories with great character interactions and development, as well as on-going plot-lines that lasted throughout the show’s run and even continuing on ones from previous entries in the DC animated universe.
So let’s not waste any more time and jump right in with my ten favourite episodes from its three-season run. Continue reading
This week on the Entertainment Dome, James and I share are already outdated opinions on Team Sonic Racing, the new Pokémon games for Switch and some of the E3 leaks before the main event next week.
The title’s a slight lie since I’m solo again. This is more of a recording test for myself. Plus I wanted to give this demo a shot anyway and figured why not make a video out of it. Any feedback is greatly appreciated and I hope you enjoy.

Following on from last week’s VG Music Pick, I want to write about the scene where that music piece debuts – Ventus’ first fight with Vanitas. The music on it’s own is really good, but it takes on a whole new level of awesome when it’s combined with this scene. Continue reading
