The Entertainment Dome Episode 120 – They’re Just Movies

This week on The Entertainment Dome, we finally get round to sharing some of our thoughts on the most recent JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure series, we discuss the newest The Rise of Skywalker trailer, and I can’t help but rant about the Disney/Sony fiasco regarding Spider-Man (apologies for the audio issues for the first half of the episode).

Favourite Moments in Fiction #23 – “My Friends Are My Power” (Kingdom Hearts)

WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Kingdom Hearts

kingdom-hearts_00353171

It sounds a little weird to say this but there was a time when Kingdom Hearts was oddly simple. While the series is notorious nowadays for its convoluted story-line, the first game is actually pretty easy to follow (for the most part – there are still some nonsensical moments). And while it may not seem as grandiose or have presentation on the same level as its superior sequels, the first game is responsible for some of the series’ most iconic traits and moments. Case in point – this scene. Continue reading

My Ten Favourite Steven Universe Songs

WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Steven Universe

Steven Universe is arguably one of the best cartoons ever made. Or, at the very least, one of the most popular modern ones. Whether it be because of its soft and cosy atmosphere, it’s large and lovable cast, or the stories and messages it presents, a lot of people love this show, myself included. Today, I want to highlight one of the show’s most notable aspects – its songs.

You can tell just by watching the show that the crew LOVE making music and song numbers. I can’t quite describe it but every song has the same level of heart and passion put into it, resulting in a unified yet varied soundtrack, with some of them sounding like they’d fit in a stage musical. So, with the Steven Universe movie almost upon us and it being a musical as well, I’m sharing my ten favourite songs from the show so far, in order of when they appeared in the show. And let me tell you, there were a lot to pick from. Continue reading

My VG Music Picks #82 – Sweatshop (Persona 5)

WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Persona 5

How have I gone this long without doing a VG Music Pick on Persona 5? It’s the newest main entry in the series, one of my favourite games of 2017, and undeniably has one of the best soundtracks of this generation, so it’s about time I wrote about at least one of it’s pieces. But, and this may surprise a lot of you, I’m not writing about one of the really popular tracks. In fact, this week’s subject is a track that, from what I understand, most people actually hate and consider one of the worst pieces of music from the game. So why is it here? Because I actually kind of like it. Continue reading

Ten Things You Might’ve Not Known About Pokémon Red & Blue

How about we try something new this week? You may not know this but I love me some trivia. Whether it be early concepts, connections between actors or just neat, little easter eggs, I get a weird thrill from learning and memorising this kind of stuff from all kinds of media (which did not help me during my school years when I should’ve been memorising maths). But one thing I love more than discovering trivia is sharing it with others, so I figured why not try my hand at actually writing up some fun articles all about that?

So let’s start things off with ten things you may not have known from a classic set of games that defined a lot of peoples’ childhoods – the first generation of Pokémon games, Red & Blue – courtesy of Bulbapedia and Serebii (just so you know I’m not making all this up). Continue reading

Favourite Moments in Fiction #22 – The Epilogue (Steins;Gate)

WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Steins;Gate

I was originally planning on writing about the entire climax of Steins;Gate because I love it so much, but the whole point of these articles is that they’re short and get to the point, and breaking down why said climax is so great would take a lot of explaining, especially since I’d want those who haven’t played it to fully understand it. So, instead, I’m just gonna skip ahead to the game’s epilogue. Continue reading

My VG Music Picks #81 – Re-awake (Steins;Gate 0)

WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Steins;Gate 0

When it comes to the two Steins;Gate titles, I don’t find either of their soundtracks to be particularly amazing. They’re perfectly fine and atmospheric but not the kind that I could find myself listening to over and over again, with the exception of a few tracks. I’ve written about my favourite music piece from the first game before, so it’s only fitting that I do the same for my favourite piece from Steins;Gate 0. Continue reading
