WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Pokémon 3: The Movie: Entei – Spell of the Unown
In case you never listened to my friend James and I’s commentary on the third Pokémon movie, well, you should (I actually find it to be one of our better commentaries). But if you really don’t want to or don’t have the time, I’ll just quickly state that it’s easily my favourite of the many Pokémon anime films that have been made. Granted, I’ve not seen all of them but I very much doubt any of the later ones can top this.
It’s my favourite for a number of reasons – the atmosphere, the music, the sympathetic and interesting antagonist, the voice performances, the overall story itself – but the absolutely best scene in the whole film (in my opinion, at least) is easily the battle between Charizard and Entei. And considering they heavily advertised this fight (it’s on the frigging poster and VHS/DVD cover), those who worked on this movie knew how much of a draw it was. Continue reading
I remember when Super Mario 3D World was first announced and how very few people seemed impressed with it. Aside from the new Cat Mario power-up, there wasn’t really anything appealing about it until the second trailer dropped and showed a lot more cool, new stuff about it, which caused a lot of fans’ opinions to do a complete 180 (myself included).
And while it may have been a bit of a chaotic mess as a multiplayer game, I found it to be an enjoyable single-player romp. But one constant that I think a lot of people can agree was good from the very get-go was the first piece of music we heard from the game, which also acts as the music for the game’s first level.

To some, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze may just seem like another run-of-the-mill platformer, and I wouldn’t necessarily blame them for that. In fact, I remember when the game was first announced, a lot of people expressed major disappointment since Retro Studios were developing it and fans were hoping that they were doing another Metroid game.

This week on The Entertainment Dome, I express my unbridled glee about the latest RWBY Volume 6 episodes, before we move on to talking about some of the Game Awards announcements, including the Super Smash Bros/Persona 5 collab.
Last week was The Entertainment Dome’s 100th episode and James and I decided to spend it by discussing the Detective Pikachu trailer and how we’re weirdly excited for the movie, but not before I subject James to my dumb RWBY Volume 6 theories during the weekly recap.
Here’s to the next 100!
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 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
