3 Episode Rule – Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai

3 Episode Rule is a series in which I watch the first three episodes of a new anime and decide whether to stick with it or drop it based on those three episodes alone.

I tried to watch eight anime for the last series of 3 Episode Rule, although in the end I ran out of time and only managed to get to six. This season, I’m trying for eight again, only I’m changing my approach slightly and hope to manage to squeeze them all in. Even if they don’t end up making out in the most timely of manner. This third time I’m digging into a remake of a classic anime, to see if a lack of nostalgia for it can keep my attention in this packed couple of weeks.

GhostBusters: Afterlife – One more rant about Nostalgified remakes

This hot take will be a little out of date by the time it eventually goes up, but I’m sure that by the time it eventually does get posted, I’m sure some other nostalgically charged franchise will get a trailer for their surprise reboot or sequel.

Wooderon’s favourite Video Games of 2019 – #9

I’m most of the way through my top ten and I’m finding ever more games that I’d forgotten I’d missed. I honestly can’t understand people saying this was a weak year for video games. Next year is going to be the weird one, what with so many games not coming out till the very end of the year along with the new consoles.

I know I already rewrote my 2018 Game of the Year list a few weeks back and not much changed. I really want to get to the half dozen games I missed in the next six months and see how this list changes, because it’s going to be a much more difficult top ten to compile after I’ve gone back and done that I think. Which isn’t to say the games I’m talking about here are undeserving, I’m just some weird kind of completionist when it comes to making and compiling ordered lists.
