Can Berserk Ever Be Properly Adapted?

Oh Berserk. The most beloved dark-fantasy manga to come out of Japan. It perfectly balances incredible characters and storytelling with absolutely gorgeous artwork! The tone is perfectly balanced, delivering more than a few gut twisting, horrifying moments while balancing them with happy moments of brevity. Sure, there are some long gaps between manga chapters. But the wait… Continue reading Can Berserk Ever Be Properly Adapted?

Pokemon Sword/Shield: Getting Angry Over Nothing

All of you people who spent their energy screaming at the devs about a game that hadn't even come out could have done so much more with your time. You could have gone out and planted a tree. You could've played a game that didn't make you upset. You could have gone for a nice… Continue reading Pokemon Sword/Shield: Getting Angry Over Nothing

Best of the Beastiary, D&D

Demons Part 5: Dretch (Best of the Bestiary)

These things are just fucking millennials. But stupid and worthless. And demonic. No seriously, just look at the flavor text! They're hideous, self-loathing creatures who are, and I quote, 'doomed to spend eternity in a state of perpetual discontent' (which may be the single funniest thing I have ever read in my entire life). They… Continue reading Demons Part 5: Dretch (Best of the Bestiary)

Should We Be Excited For a Hideo Kojima Movie?

There are few creators as bizarre as Hideo Kojima. He has made a ton of classic games, including the Metal Gear Solid franchise, and lots of underappreciated gems like Snatcher (look it up, it's great). And just recently, he's released the much anticipated and... divisively received Death Stranding! Which I don't want to talk about. I like… Continue reading Should We Be Excited For a Hideo Kojima Movie?
