So, there’s been a campaign in the Whoniverse (yes I call it the Whoniverse, get over it!) where Doctor Who fans recount their first experiences with Doctor Who. At first, I wasn’t going to do a #newtowho story because I felt it was quite silly, but I’ve finally succumb, so here’s the epic tale of how I became addicted to
crack Doctor Who.
Yeah, I’m doing another Top 10 list, I guess its Top 10 week or something. So, as any of you who know me at all know, I’m addicted to television. Of course, I’m addicted to a lot of things. Anyways, here are my top 10 favorite TV shows (and possibly some honorable mentions).
I haven’t done a post in forever, so I’m going to do a small post about stuff and things. More specifically, stuff and things that have to do with my personal top 10 video games of all time and some of my thoughts on them.
So I saw Men in Black 3 today and I have both good and bad news. The good news is that it’s not nearly as bad as MiB2; the bad news is that it’s still not that good, which is sad because it had the potential to be a lot better than it actually was. It’s not a bad movie by any means, it just feels a bit like a wasted opportunity to do something better. It’s a good watch and I’d recommend it if you don’t want to watch The Avengers for the umpteenth time. Also, anyone wondering why this isn’t a Digimon Adventure Part 2 review, it’s coming, so hold your ponies!)
So for the past two weeks, I’ve been going through the entire season of Digimon Adventure, the first season of Digimon. Why? Mostly as required reading for a Digimon RP that I’m in right now (click the link to check it out or check out the story version here. I wrote the seventh chapter which has yet to be posted) and party for nostalgic purposes, as I watched Adventure every day after school when I was a kid. I’m starting on Tamers at the moment, but I wanted to look back and review the season to see if it holds up as well as I remember.
Seriously, you guys don’t have any idea how long I’ve waited to write an article on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which happens to be my favorite TV show of all time. For those who don’t know, Buffy was a supernatural TV show about a teenage girl who was chosen to be a vampire Slayer. It was created by Joss Whedon and ran for 7 seasons from 1997-2003. There’s also a movie, but it sucked so bad that Joss Whedon did some retcon when he made the show to effectively cancel out the film. Also, since 2007, Buffy Season 8 and 9 comics have been released. These comics are the focus of tonight’s segment. You see, I absolutely adore Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the comics are great, however, I feel that something got lost in the transition between mediums.
Hello denizens of the interwebs, I am proud to present the very first installment of my new OoA (not Oracle of Ages!) segment Retcon: Retro Video Game Reviews. Since this is the first Retcon, I’m going to map out the general gist of things. I’m not going to give any of these games number or letter or star scores because opinions are more complicated than numbers and letters and don’t even get me started on stars. Pretty much, before I start writing the review, I’m going to play the game, in this case Super Metroid, again and write down my thoughts on things like controls, level design, music, and overall fun. So, see ya’ll in about five hours once I’m done with Super Metroid.
Hello denizens of the interwebs, I’m proud to announce in this short, but sweet, blog post a new segment. I call it Retcon: Retro Video Game Reviews. It’s pretty much where I review games from the 80s and 90s. So yeah, expect a Retcon review sometime in the next three days.
I know retcon means retroactive continuity,
EDIT: If you would like to request that I review a game, just send me a message and I’ll consider it. Remember, it has to be a RETRO game (and not Retro Studios, an actual retro game). I’ll say the cut-off is SNES era games, but I’ll welcome N64 and GBC games.
