Dragon Ball Super Vol 2 Review

The second Dragon Ball Super volume covers chapters 10 through 15, with a ton of story covered. The “Champa saga” ends by chapter 13, leaving 14 and 15 to kick off the “Future Trunks saga” (otherwise known as “Goku Black saga”.

Review – The Walking Dead: A New Frontier (PS4)

The third season of Telltale’s eponymous series is possibly the most curious yet. Telltale’s approach to storytelling has become familiar over its various franchises. Potential outcomes have become more obvious through familiarity than merely being predictable. This latest Walking Dead installment attempts to skirt around such expectations and take it up a notch. Like the… Continue reading Review – The Walking Dead: A New Frontier (PS4)

Review – God of War: Ascension (PS3)

Japanese manga’s Western exposure is as prominent as it’s ever been, and not just in written media.

Review – Pac-Man Museum (Xbox 360)

I have a confession. I’m rubbish at the original Pac-Man, and always have been. But it’s a damn addictive game. While most gamers and even non-gamers will have sampled the original at some point in its now 34 years of existence, all would surely agree that Pac Man is one of the most iconic and… Continue reading Review – Pac-Man Museum (Xbox 360)
