2% Of The Way To The Year 3000, How Does Futurama Hold Up?

When people talk about humour being dated, they’re usually talking about social sensibilities. Dated humour normally refers to jokes which revolve around racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia or some other discrimination; if you think humour is dated, it probably means you now feel guilty about jokes which punch down on minorities. They’re no more or less funny than they used to […]

Trying To Teach In Fire Emblem: Three Houses

You might have seen the videos like ‘We Showed A Bank Robber GTA V’, ‘We Showed A Lawyer The Bird Law Scene From IASIP’ and, my personal favourite ‘We Showed A Priest ‘God Is A Woman’ By Ariana Grande’. Playing Fire Emblem: Three Houses was a similar experience for me. I used to be a teacher; it feels like it […]

Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla Might Finally Be The Sequel Black Flag Deserves

The Assassin’s Creed continuity is… spotty at best. Early entries into the series still took an alternate view of history and featured some magical elements, but were firmly grounded in their era. Origins and Odyssey, the two most recent instalments, have swung for the fences with suspension of disbelief, and have opened the world up so much more, refreshing the […]

Harley Quinn’s Show Highlights The Importance Of Taking Risks

Harley Quinn’s new animated show arrived with all the chaotic energy of Harleen Quinzel herself, full of stunts, hyper stylised violence and more curse words per square inch than a sailor who just caught himself in his zipper. It’s managed to capture Harley’s frenetic personality and channel that into its momentum, with Season 2 premiering just seven weeks after Season […]

The History Of The AI Sex Mommy

Overwatch’s latest hero, Echo, is an AI sex mommy. She’s far from the only one, and she even challenges some of the typical tropes of what makes a sex mommy, but she is a sex mommy nonetheless. Sex mommies are feminine robots, designed primarily to be subservient to man’s desires, but with the added angle that people want to have […]

Best Girls – Louise Belcher, Bob’s Burgers

Bob’s Burgers is one of the best cartoons out there, but Louise Belcher deserves a special kind of praise. That she’s my favourite is largely irrelevant here; all of the family are great in their own way and it’s their dynamic which elevates Bob’s Burgers out of being simply and copy and paste of The Simpsons, Family Guy or American […]

Inside Slavic Time Travel Game The End Of The Sun

Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla isn’t the only time travelling Northern European adventure game coming this year. The End Of The Sun, built off Slavic imagery and built by a core team of just three developers, has been in the works for the past three years and next week its Kickstarter is going to officially launch. Over at Indie Game Website, I’ve […]

Why South Park Is The Ultimate Safe Space

South Park says things other shows won’t. That’s always been its schtick. 300 episodes in, it’s still able to shock, as the most recent season showed through Band In China and Board Girls, which tackled Chinese censorship and trans women in sport. Both important issues of our time, and South Park handled then in a typical South Park way. We’ll […]

Animal Crossing Is A Westworld Hellscape

If you’ve had Animal Crossing since launch, you’ll likely have played it long enough to have made your island your own. That might mean creating mazes, building football stadiums, or re-enacting horror flicks. It’s even reached the level of popularity for Business Insider to harvest hate clicks by explaining how it’s a dumb game for babies, you dumb baby. It’s […]

Sonic Forces And The Unifying Power Of Bad Games

Sonic Forces is not a good game. Even by Sonic’s erratic standards, the levels are very hit and miss. It combines classic 2D speed platforming, 2.5D mazes and not-quite-fully-open 3D levels, letting you play as classic chubby Sonic, modern charismatic Sonic and a character of your own creation. The gameplay in all three options have glaring flaws, but together they […]
