Ever since its initial reveal at E3 2019, I have wanted desperately to like Square Enix and Crystal Dynamic’s Avengers game. Unfortunately, nearly everything about it seemed to be forcing me to be sceptical about it.
The plot was uninteresting and a culmination of some of my least favourite ‘event comic’ superhero tropes, the gameplay appeared average at best and monotonous at worst, the hyper realistic graphics made for a grey and bland-looking world, and its mere existence as a service title akin to something like Destiny meant that this was Square Enix attempting to capitalise on a trendy market by using already existing characters as the poster boys to help push it.
I wanted to give the game a chance, though, so when I was granted the opportunity to try out the game’s beta, I took it. Sometimes, you really do need a hands-on approach to better judge a product and I’ll be detailing my experiences and first impressions here. Continue reading
This week on The Entertainment Dome, we discuss the recent Shin Megami Tensei announcements, I’m forced to admit that I like the look of Watch Dogs: Legion, and James has good things to say about Ghost of Tsushima.

With everyone raving over the Final Fantasy 7 Remake demo, I figured I’d record my initial impressions as someone with no nostalgia for the original game.
This week on The Entertainment Dome, James unsurprisingly has opinions on the Final Fantasy VII Remake demo and he’s very excited for Baldur’s Gate 3.
This week on The Entertainment Dome, after a bit of a preamble, we share our thoughts on the somewhat decent Sonic the Hedgehog movie and James still has mixed feelings about Final Fantasy VII Remake.
I know I’m late in saying this but, damn, this really is a new decade, huh? I never even considered it until it was pointed out to me. A lot has happened in the last ten years, and after looking at some good-looking games that are coming in the future, I’d like to reminisce about all the awesome games from the past. And, boy, there were a lot.
So, since everyone else has done it and I apparently have as much originality as a live-action Disney remake, here’s a list of some of my all-time favourite games to have been released throughout the 2010s – one from each year (I’m using the European release dates BTW). Continue reading
Last week on The Entertainment Dome, we had a politically-charged episode of RWBY to discuss, and then we talked about the initially leaked Kingdom Hearts III DLC trailer.
WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Final Fantasy XIV
Because of how music from Final Fantasy XIV can only be uploaded to YouTube if it’s accompanying gameplay footage, I should mention that the video above shows off the final boss of the game’s Nier: Automata raid and it’s a big ol’ spoiler so if you play FFXIV and haven’t completed said raid yet, don’t click on the video. I won’t give away who it is in the text, though. Continue reading
Last week on The Entertainment Dome, we returned to RWBY with our weekly recaps, kicking off Volume 7 with praise, concerns, and theories.
