The Entertainment Dome Episode 102 – We Never Saw It Coming

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.

The Entertainment Dome Episode 100 – We’re Still Doing This?

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!

The Day Dreams Died

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

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

My VG Music Picks #68 – N’s Room (Pokémon Black 2 & White 2)

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

Favourite Moments in Fiction #15 – The Ferris Wheel Chase (Professor Layton and the Curious Village)

WARNING: The following contains spoilers for Professor Layton and the Curious Village

Following on from last week’s VG Music Pick, let’s take a quick look at what could be argued as being one of the most iconic scenes from the first Professor Layton game. Hell, you could probably make an argument that it’s one of the most iconic scenes in the franchise and helped set an example for how action scenes in the series worked. Continue reading

My VG Music Picks #67 – Professor Layton’s Theme (Professor Layton and the Curious Village)

I’m actually kind of shocked that it’s taken me this long to write about some music from the Professor Layton series, especially the good old prof’s theme music itself. The series became an instant favourite of mine when it launched back in 2008 thanks to its range of interesting and brain-taxing puzzles, lovely visuals, wonderful characters, off-the-wall storytelling and, of course, atmospheric music. And while Layton’s theme has remained relatively unchanged throughout the series, there’s a very good reason for that – it’s perfect already. Continue reading
