As this post goes up, I am most likely sprawled horizontally in some kind of food related coma, dreading the fact that I’m going to have to do it all again in an hour or so. Will I be playing any games at this point, it’s certainly possible, although the whole family obligation makes that a little difficult. Maybe I should just sneak the Switch with me wherever I go over Christmas.
This game is one I’ve already said a fair bit about in the past couple of months. It’s one I had been looking forward to most of the year for nostalgic reasons, and while my parting feelings with the game weren’t as glowing as they had been in the beginning, I can’t deny the quality of the game itself.
Before I get into it proper, let’s review where we are so far:

#9: Into the Breach
#8: Dragon Ball FighterZ
#7: Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age
#6: Forza Horizon 4

It’s not like Insomniac did something majorly wrong with the formula back in the day, rather, Year of the Dragon seems like simple iteration. Giving it shades of a game made of obligation rather than passion.

I used to be Power Rangers super fan #1 back when I was a kid. I was obsessed with them. I had the videos, I had mountains of toys and as much memorabilia as I could get my hands on. I used to pretend to be a Power Ranger. Before I really fell down the video games and anime well, Power Rangers was my life. So now a brand new Power Rangers movie, based on the original “Mighty Morphin” series of the show, is coming to theatres. How do I feel about it?
Well, strangely enough, up until yesterday I was totally indifferent. A fact that surprised even me. I’d seen the promotional stills floating around the internet, I’d caught bits of teasers before skipping them on Youtube. It wasn’t that I was disguised, or “triggered” that my childhood was being interfered with. I just didn’t care. Nothing about it interested me. It all just seemed so derivative, especially in this period of superhero overload in cinemas. Continue reading “The Power Rangers Movie looks Bad”
