Show Review: Iron Fist

Iron_Fist_S1_Title_CardIt’s been a week since Iron Fist was first released on Netflix and so, like countless others, I finally finished watching the last Defender’s debut season. It wasn’t a perfect series to say the least but to be quite honest, it wasn’t a complete let-down as critics made it out to be. Iron Fist had its moments but it’s no Jessica Jones (or Daredevil? I can’t be entirely sure about that one since I – confession time – haven’t seen the Daredevil series).

In short, Iron Fist has potential. It has some stand-out characters but it was dragged down by its story and lacklustre visuals.

Game Review: The Walking Dead – A New Frontier – Episode One

twd_s3_coverWith episode three only a week away, I decided to finally get my hands on the latest installment of Telltale’s Walking Dead series and delve into the world once more. The first episode Ties That Bind Us: Part One sets up an entirely new story with a new cast of characters alongside some familiar faces. I was surprised at how fast the episode had progressed however, it’s a great addition to a rich, diverse universe.

Warning! There will be spoilers so dive in at your own risk.

Game Review: A King’s Tale – Final Fantasy XV

After putting it off for quite some time, I finally got around to playing A King’s Tale: Final Fantasy XV. It’s a nifty little 2D beat ’em up side scroller which is set 30 years prior to the main game. Even though it’s only been a day or so since I started playing, it’s a nice break from the open world of Final Fantasy XV and brings a sense of nostalgia for me playing in 2D again.

Parallels Between Film and Games: Logan, The Walking Dead: Season One and The Last of Us

logan-walking-dead-last-of-us

Running from the hype that is Logan, there are two other stories that come to mind after watching the movie. The games The Last of Us and The Walking Dead: Season One tell a similar story and one could argue that there are elements that these two games share with the final chapter of the Wolverine saga.

At its core, these stories revolve around a tough man with some issues forced to look after a young female child in a post-apocalyptic world and eventually become their father-figure. What I want to highlight is how Logan parallels to these games – even if it’s a stretch. Because why not.

Book Review: Neil Patrick Harris – Choose Your Own Autobiography

neil-patrick-harris

For the last year or so, Neil Patrick Harris’ autobiography had been on my must-read lists for various reasons. Firstly, Neil Patrick Harris is an absolute gem. He’s not only a talented actor but also a great singer and magician. Secondly, what attracted me most to his autobiography was that it claimed to be a “choose-your-own-adventure” book.
