The Walking Dead: A Telltale Game Series – A New Frontier Episode 2: Ties That Bind Part 2 Review


A New Frontier Episode 2: Ties That Bind Part 2

Welcome back survivors!

I’m carrying on with my review of The Walking Dead: A Telltale Game Series – A New Frontier with episode 2 titled Ties That Bind Part 2, so I’m gonna jump straight into it.

The second episode in A New Frontier picks up pretty much where part 1 of Ties That Bind ended, picking up the pace that was set in the season opener. I did feel like this episode was closely more linked to what I love about The Walking Dead and does a solid job of solidifying the brilliant story plots that Telltale have formulated in their games since the first game. It does a great job of building on the foundation set in the season premiere and also what occurred in the first two seasons of The Walking Dead, one thing for sure is that the ending of this two part episode has really set the scene and is setting up what could be an amazing season for the game. More so than ever with these games, I do feel like the choices I will make throughout the story really will matter and I will have to tread carefully as the plot develops. As a gamer, I like to think strategically and in these games I think my choices will be more important than the previous two games.

The Walking Dead: A Telltale Series – A New Frontier Episode 1: Ties That Bind Part 1 Review


A New Frontier Episode 1: Ties That Bind Part 1 Review

So episode 1 kick starts the new season of The Walking Dead with what I thought was a really great pilot episode, that really got me stoked for what’s in store for the season as a whole. “Ties That Bind Part 1” is a great start to the season taking elements from the previous seasons and building on this walker infested world with this new assortment of characters.

We get to take control of and meet the new protagonist in this season, Javi, in what I think is one of the best sequences I have seen in the Telltale games so far. It takes place during the beginning of the zombie outbreak and the opening sequence does feel like something straight out of a horror film, with the way the lighting has been used and how the scene has been edited together making a very strong and memorable opening to the new story.

The Walking Dead: A Telltale Game Series – A New Frontier


Telltale Games have done it again!

I have been a massive fan of the Telltale Games: The Walking Dead series as I thought it was such a new and immersive gaming experience. It really got you to step into the shoes of characters from the post-apocalyptic world and the decisions you make really impact the story, giving different outcomes to other players. I thought that the first two seasons of The Walking Dead were brilliant, so when I stumbled across The Walking Dead: A New Frontier I knew that I had to jump on this game as I absolutely loved the first two.

Into The Badlands S02 E10 – “Wolf’s Breath, Dragon Fire” Review


I freaking love Into the Badlands!!!!!!

Whoa….not sure where that little outburst came from, but yeah….Into the Badlands is seriously one of my favourite shows on TV right now! I remember back in 2015 when AMC announced their slate of upcoming shows this was one on the list and when I saw the teaser trailer, I knew I would be jumping straight on this show! I am a massive fans of martial arts and some of my favourite actors/martial artists are Donnie Yen, Tony Jaa and leading man in Into the Badlands Daniel Wu. So when I heard about a martial arts action show set in a post-apocalyptic world it was just something I had to check out.

This year we got a full 10 episode second season for Into the Badlands and holy shit has it been a very consistent and awesome season. I just never get tired of this show as it has everything in it that for me personally, has the makings of a brilliant show! This week’s Season 2 finale titled “Wolf’s Breath, Dragon Fire” is a culmination leading up to Sonny taking on Quinn, the Baron that trained him as a clipper, and saving his son and his love interest Vale from the crazy Baron played by Marton Csokas.

No Game No Life and the struggles of social anxiety

Today I wanted to talk a little about Social Anxiety using the anime No Game No Life as an example. This is a topic close to my heart as someone who is recently going through something similar and after watching No Game No Life I couldn’t help but think about my personal situation and how others in this position might feel.

No Game No Life touched on many aspects of anxiety and the concept of escaping from ones reality. The anime centers around a brother and sister gaming duo who go by the anonymous handle, “Blank”. They are notorious for displaying beyond exceptional skills when it comes to gaming of all forms.

Hikikomori and NEET

Our protagonists Sora and Shiro are certified Hikikomori. The idea of social interaction in the busy and bustling working society fills them with absolute dread, as is made obvious at various points throughout the anime…

What’s next for The Flash going into Season 4?


It’s been almost a month now since The Flash’s Season 3 finale aired and we saw that Barry paid the ultimate price for creating the Flashpoint timeline, as well as the evil speedster Savitar. We saw our hero retreating to the Speed Force, paying for his actions which raises the question, who will protect Central City without the Scarlet Speedster?! With the way Season 3 ended, I began to think that the show may be starting to really draw from the comic books moving forward into next season. It could even result in Wally West stepping up and be the driving force with the absence of Barry Allen.

The Art of the Brick: DC Heroes


So last week I got to attend a pretty awesome exhibition in London, it is a temporary display called The Art of the Brick: DC Super Heroes! It mixes two of my favourite things growing up as a kid Lego and Superheroes, I mean what more could you ask for? Plus I’m an artist myself and always enjoying seeing art in different mediums and this was an opportunity to see something really cool and different.

What is The Art of the Brick: DC Superheroes you ask?

I was unaware of this exhibit and remember seeing it through a sponsored advertisement on Facebook and it peaked my interest! The exhibit itself is the work of artist Nathan Sawaya who has combined two of his own passions together Lego and comic books, to create some incredible works of art in an excess of well over two million individual bricks throughout the exhibit.

The Flash S03 E23 – “Finish Line” Review


Dammit Barry, what did you do?!

So it’s been a few weeks now since The Flash’s Season 3 finale aired and I’m still trying to process what happened in the episode. I think that the third season of The Flash has been solid, with the continuing theme of Flashpoint running throughout the course of the season. I do think that these last few episodes in particular have been strong leading up until the finale. It has done a solid job in Barry and Team Flash fighting back against the darkness in the conflict with Savitar, helping us to understand Barry’s new foe and why he is a very understandable and relatable character. “Finish Line” was the dramatic ending we needed for Season 3, which is going to be a massive game-changer leading into the next season of the show.

Arrow S05 E23 – “Lian Yu” Review


Oh holy shit on a stick!!!

It’s been a week now since the Arrow Season 5 finale and I’m still trying to process it, I mean shit son! For me personally it was probably the greatest episode in the history of the show so far! As Oliver’s 5 year journey came full circle in this episode and finally learnt about his final year away before returning to Star City (or Starling City as it was called at the time)

The season finale is the one episode each year that is a culmination of what has occurred in the build up to this final episode, creating that final showdown, that will have ramifications leading into the next season. I thought the season 1 and 2 finales were just amazing, especially the season 2 one with the Arrow vs Deathstroke fight both in the present and the past. I did think that the season 4 finale lacked the elements that made the previous season finales so awesome and epic, but based on how season 5 has gone down I had really high hopes for this final episode. I was not wrong at all as episode 23 in Season 5 was so worth the wait and was the most spectacular way to end the final moments of Oliver’s final year away from Star City. “Lian Yu” was such an amazing season finale, but for me personally it is quite possibly the greatest episode in the history of Arrow.
