Have a look at Nintendo’s Fire Emblem Direct

Well, well, well. It’s been quite a week for Nintendo. After months of radio silence, the Nintendo Switch was unveiled. While I’m still working out the words I want to convey, let’s turn our attention to Fire Emblem. As soon as the presentation was over last Thursday/Friday, the Big-N decided to announce that there will be a Nintendo direct on 18/01/2017 dedicated to their Strategic-RPG, Fire Emblem. Most assumed it would be to talk about either the newly announced Warriors & the up and coming mobile game. We certainly were not expecting this (I really tried not to be too clickbait-y here).

The Flash Rebirth #1

The Flash Rebirth #1 picks up directly where the main DC Universe Rebirth title left off. If you’ve not read that issue, you really should, it’s very good. Because of the events in the main title, I can’t go into too much detail with the story, but I will say that the relaunch of The Flash is a series that should be watched very carefully. Even by saying this, I’ve probably said too much already. Continue reading “The Flash Rebirth #1”

Wonder Woman Rebirth #1

Of all the Rebirth titles, I’ve been looking forward to Wonder Woman the most. When the main series kicks off, DC arc alternating between two story arcs, promising an interesting and complelling insight into the life of Diana Prince. I’m just not sure how I’ll find buying the collected editions – powering through 6 issues then having to wait months for the story to progress. I guess that’s for future me to worry about. Back to the present and Wonder Woman Rebirth #1. Continue reading “Wonder Woman Rebirth #1”

Look how cute Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World is!

Yoshi’s Woolly World was a delight on the Wii U. It wrapped our little green dinosaur into wool and presented the cutest 2D platformer since LittleBigPlanet. It is a charming, and peaceful game that allows players to just enjoy a video game. Since it was released on the Wii U, next to no-one played it which This is a damn shame, but Nintendo are rectifying this with the 3DS release of Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World. I can promise it will be incredible. Continue reading “Look how cute Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World is!”

Green Arrow Rebirth #1

Benjamin Percy is giving Oliver Queen the shave he deserves. Well, that and some other things. Percy has given our hero a change in personality. Green Arrow is more of a social warrior than playboy. Realising he cares more about his city and its civilians rather than himself, we have a more relateable human side to get on board with. It’s this driving force for Green Arrow Rebirth #1 that makes it such a good read. Continue reading “Green Arrow Rebirth #1”

Superman Rebirth #1

Superman. The Man of Steel. The Kyrptonian. He’s had a rough few years to say the least. The New 52! became convoluted and ended up with too many men wearing the symbol of hope. If you’ve missed the last few years of DC comics, it will take an age to catch you up. Let me say this though, Superman Rebirth #1 picks up from where the New 52! left off and without giving anything away, you should read this issue with an open mind. Continue reading “Superman Rebirth #1”

30th Anniversary The Transformers: The Movie

In 1986, and after 2 successful series of selling Transformers to kids all around the world, toy company Hasbro took the decision to refresh its line of plastic robots. The behemoth decided to create a motion picture to do this. Why? Because it’s the 1980s. Nothing makes sense. With one of the worst titles of a mainstream film, The Transformers: The Movie released to the world. It wasn’t the most successful, but the people that did see the film went crazy.
