The Last of Us Part II: Where did it go wrong?

Beware! Spoilers and opinions ahead.

A FAITHFUL NETFLIX ADAPTATION

Ever since HBO turned George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones into a worldwide phenomenon, every major small screen combatant has

Time to Slay Demons

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is one of the newest members of the notorious shonen category. Developed by Studio Ufotable, the show was released in Spring 2019. The macabre dark fantasy anime dramatically depicts the tragic fate of a happy family, whose heartfelt bond of love will one day be torn apart.

Sekiro: Player dies countless times

Given that it is a FromSoftware game, I was aware people would struggle with Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. What I didn't expect was that I, a disciple of Bloodborne, would struggle with it quite so much.

Best Spider-Man Animated Film to Date

If you're of the opinion that Spider-Man has been rebooted too many times in the last two decades, hold onto your hats. The animated adventure Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse introduces no less than seven new versions of the character within a single film.

Carve Your Odyssey

Set in 431 BCE in Ancient Greece during the Peloponnesian War between Athens and Sparta, Odyssey's island-hopping story sees you playing as the descendant of the legendary Spartan King Leonidas (This is Sparta!). Who you play as in Odyssey marks a first for the Assassin's Creed franchise, as you now have the choice of playing the game exclusively as a male or female character in the shape of siblings Alexios and Kassandra.

Your Definitive Neighbourhood Spidey

When Spider-Man 2: The Game came out on in 2004, it was a revelation. More often than not, video game developers hadn't been able to translate superhero stories to an interactive medium, but Spider-Man 2 was the exception.

Improving over perfection

Horizon Zero Dawn was an incredible surprise when it released last year. Coming from a developer who was only known for linear sci-fi first person shooter, Guerilla's first attempt at an open world, third-person action RPG exceeded all of my expectations with a wonderfully crafted world, interesting characters, meaningful quests and a fascinating story that continually answered questions that were burning in the back of my mind. It was near-perfect.

A Very Grim Action-Adventure Sci-Fi

Inuyashiki has a damn good crack at originality, creating a narrative that's bolstered by its sweet-natured titular hero, as his superhuman capabilities are explored from a stylish yet believable perspective. With an antagonist that very well serves the phrase 'total and complete scumbag', and a refreshingly harrowing interpretation of the superhero genre, Inuyashiki delivers an entertaining, albeit flawed, gratuitously gripping experience.
