Xenoblade Chronicles X Review

I had never really played any of the Xenoblade games when I was growing up, or had any real idea of what they were all about. Mainly because, after the Super Nintendo, I never had another Nintendo console (Gameboy not included.) My focus after this was on other consoles, and I sunk my time into the realms of Sony and Microsoft almost exclusively. And then the WiiU came out, and I was older. I had disposable cash, and thought to myself “I won’t really play it much, but it’s a current gen console and I have the others, so...

It’s the end of an era. On Friday the 29th of April 2016, some special few of us lost a part of ourselves.

Time. Just think about it for a second. It’s the concept that humanity has created to measure the passage of the universe, and how we have made our mark. It is fundamental to our society, and is the basis for everything we do. The Past. The Present. The Future. Our Age. Time controls when we go to work, when we eat, when we sleep.

Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice

I’ve been a DC Comics fan for as long as I can remember. Not for any particular reason, really – It’s not like I hate Marvel. But if I could only buy a single comic, and had to choose between Marvel and DC, nine times out of ten it will be DC. It’s best to be honest about these things.
