Overlord – Anime Watch

Visiting the world of Overlord we are introduced to Momonga, our skeletal protagonist, master of the empty halls of Nazarik within a game called Yggdrasil. The story begins on the day the Yggdrasil servers are to be shut down. Instead of being ejected back into the real world, our protagonist finds himself trapped, transported into a living game world with his domain and subjects.

The Force Awakens – Impressions

Star Wars The Force Awakens has been a long awaited installment in the series, and I certainly have looked forward to it. The day before its release I booked myself a ticket for a viewing at 12:00am on the 16th of December 2015, to be among the first to see it in Bahrain.

Armed with popcorn, a ticket and a pack of Maltesers I made my way to the cinema hall.

Attack on Titan – Anime Watch

Attack on Titan is a series I’ve been watching a load of recently so I thought I’d summarize my impressions of it.

  • Attack on Titan boasts an amazing sense of scale.
  • Top notch music, (for the sake of staying spoiler free) my personal favorite track being in an awesome scene of Captain Levi in the forest.
  • Great collection of characters.
  • Questions proposed by the story leaves you wondering.
  • Like the art style with its cannons and ‘Tudor-esque’ housing styles.

Attack on Titan is an anime well worth your time, so check out the anime’s first season. Season 2 is in the works, and rumor has it, has unfortunately been delayed to 2016. Meanwhile check out the live action movie instead! For additional information check out the wiki page, and its own wiki.

Jim Sterling’s Jimquisition

Are you looking for an insightful perspective into issues regarding the game industry?

Are your capable of listening to someone who probably does not share your opinion?

Are you capable of assimilating potentially provocative thoughts in-order to further your own understanding?

Then the entertaining, often outspoken non-journalist Jim Sterling is the man to see. Here’s the latest episode of The Jimquisition from his channel:

Smooth McGroove

Have you ever relaxed into your chair, listening to a song that takes you somewhere far away? Somewhere simpler; carefree. A place before you knew shades of grey.

Video Game Music does this for me. It’s my music therapy.

So on my travels surfing the vast expanse of the internet I sometimes encounter music practitioners, people who give my dose. Smooth McGroove is one such person. With his all original a-capella arrangements of primarily video game music I can fly away; if only for a moment.

Thank you Smooth McGroove.

Check out his work. You wont be disappointed.
