The Fiend Behind the Mirror – Why The Necromancer Was the Best Written Villain of Season 1

  As season 2 of Legacies begins I feel it’s pertinent and absolutely necessary to reflect upon season 1 first. After all, it has a ton of issues, one of the bigger ones being the monster of the week formula. Most of the monsters that appeared were one-dimensional, bland and do nothing but screech and …

The Hurricane Inside the Stoic – Analysing Sten From Dragon Age Origins

  One of the most interesting things about the Dragon Age video game series is that the writers just love laying things out in the open from the start. It’s not just foreshadowing, it’s laying all of their cards on the table immediately because they know that they can make a royal flush. But because …

Big Ffing Schedule Change

Dearest audience, It is time to, momentarily, take our silly confetti spewing hats off and put our serious top hats on.

  As I was playing another round of Dragon Age Origins I came across a helpful young Tranquil lad in Ostagar. A magey lad who was kind enough to explain to me what tranquility and enchantments are all about. One line in particular was striking: “Enchantment provides the circle its wealth. Certainly, we would not …

When The Make-Over Drains Your Soul – A Further Criticism of 2019 Jasmine

  Now I know what you’re thinking. Didn’t I already discuss why Jasmine was bad in the last CG? Yes. Yes, I did. But to my everlasting shame and eternal regret I did not manage to effectively communicate my humongously big buggaboo for the 2019 Jasmine. You see, poor Analyze fell asleep during my five …

  Dear diary, Today was a momentous day in a whole life of fun days. It has been the day where Analyze and I took our friendship to the next level. We became real roommates! Besties who spend every waking moment with each other! I can only hope that Analyze loves this almost as much …

The Cute Elf’s Dark Story – Analysing Merrill’s Psychology in Dragon Age II

  If you’ve read any of my other articles you may have noticed that I’ve got a thing for sweet, cuddly, adorable and adorkable girls. Merrill from Dragon Age II is therefore my bae.

When Does the Cycle End? – Discussing the Main Issue With The Walking Dead

  Note: This article was written after the mid-finale of the first half of season 9. Therefore it doesn’t keep the second half in mind, nor is that necessary. I know what happens in the second half and nothing really argues against the smackdown I’m about to lay down. The best things of that half …

More Than Just Bullies With Guns – Re-imagining the Saviors

  I like The Walking Dead. I really do. There is something about zombie shows that I really enjoy and I find it a fascinating venue to explore human nature. This is something that The Walking Dead explores thoroughly and it’s one of its better thematic points. With this in mind we should take a …
