Netflix Castlevania Review

Castlevania Review

July 12, 2017 Conor 0

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. ¬†

Iron Fist Review: Inconsistent Characters, Interminable Fights

March 18, 2017 Conor 0

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.

The Walking Dead: The New Frontier Title

Geek Errant Reviews: The Walking Dead: The New Frontier

December 26, 2016 Conor 0

To put it bluntly, the opening episodes of Walking Dead Season 3 do not inspire confidence in the rest of the season. There’s structural problems, story issues, a really weird sense of camera direction and some odd graphical problems. By now, Telltale’s Walking Dead series has a reputation. There’s good parts, like the first season’s (for the time) excellent narrative and ability to tug on heartstrings with the choices system. There’s also terrible parts, like the second season’s reliance on unrelenting solemnity and shock, and the fact that by now, after using the choices system in so many other games, it’s transparent to the player. Season Three does very little to move on from this.

Geek Errant Reviews: Black Mirror Season 3

October 27, 2016 Conor 0

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.

The Nintendo Switch: What is it?

October 20, 2016 Conor 0

Nintendo seem to have learned their lesson from the announcement of the WiiU. Where that announcement was a bloated, feature filled exercise in justifying its own existence, and the Console suffered from a confusing brand name that didn’t help. The Switch looks different. The Switch is Different.
