The Entertainment Dome Episode 107 – I Blame the Incest

This week on The Entertainment Dome, we decide to hold off on talking about Kingdom Hearts III for the time being so we can discuss the latest Nintendo Direct, where James gets excited over the new Fire Emblem and I completely derail the conversation by bringing up the series’ previous “problematic” relationships.

The Entertainment Dome Episode 106 – This Ship’s Canon Now, Right?

Last week on The Entertainment Dome, we spent the hour discussing the final two episodes of RWBY Volume 6, including Blake and Yang’s battle with Adam, THAT character reveal and what could potentially entail in Volume 7 (apologies for the slight audio issues).

Ten Anticipated Games of 2019

2018 was a very mixed year in terms of videogames. It was a year of stellar highs and abysmal lows. On one hand, the PS4 exclusive Spider-Man game proved that not only were single-player titles still in demand but licensed games could also be incredible, Octopath Traveler was a perfect throwback to SNES-era RPGs and showed how beloved turn-based RPGs still are and only last month we got Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which very much lived up to its name considering it’s a game where Princess Peach can beat up Cloud Strife in the middle of Dracula’s Castle.

On the other hand, however, gross mismanagement led to the closure of TellTale Games, resulting in several highly anticipated titles getting cancelled and its employees suddenly jobless, the lootbox craze became so bad that some countries have made them illegal, which sets a worrying precedent for the possibility of games becoming regulated, and do I even need to bring up the utter fuster-cluck that was Fallout 76?

As always, I prefer to not dwell on the past but focus on the future. We all have high expectations for 2019 and while I’m sure there’s a myriad of bullshit headed our way, there’re gonna be some amazing things too. So let me share with you the ten games I’m most looking forward to this year. Continue reading

Callout

Last week, I was able to attend the launch event for a new range of miniature arcade cabinets by Quarter Arcades, a subsidiary of Numskull Designs – a site dedicated to making officially licensed merchandise like shirts, mugs, wallets and more based around our favourite videogame, movie and TV franchises.
