Castlevania is a game series based around the troubles of the Belmont family, as they tackle the monsters sent by Dracula to torment the people. The animated series brought to us from Netflix and written by Warren Ellis has been adapted from that core concept. With only four episodes, Castlevania is more of a proof of concept than anything else. Saying that, It’s compelling, hideous and leaves you wanting more.
Squirrel Girl is getting a TV Show in 2018 thanks to Marvel and ABC. Okay. Gotta keep the hype in control.
Not everything made by Marvel can be great. Iron Fist is a show that has serious problems in just trying to find a point. It is incredibly hard to enjoy Iron Fist. Most of the series is spent actively trying to prevent the audience from caring about anything that’s going on.

I know the move to Netflix is great. And I know you have your habits. But Do Not binge watch Black Mirror. Don’t do it. It’s amazing, I get that. You want to watch more. It is wonderful, but pick an episode, watch it, take a break. It deserves it. Netflix has mostly got it’s original programming series designed to be watched in a sequence, sometimes not even paying attention properly. Black Mirror is worth considering. Pore over it. I’m going to go through the episodes for commenting, but I’ll be avoiding spoilers for the most part where I can.

Sony have confirmed that their Playstation Now subscription network will be expanding to Windows PCs, initially in Europe and then moving to North America. The System allows users with compatible devices to stream whole games, Netflix style, to their PC or laptop. This offers a new opportunity for many people to play PS3 and Vita games which they may have missed out on in the last console generation, without having to deal with emulation or any of the associated issues.
