Video Game Review: “DuckTales Remastered” Recaptures A Classic’s Charm

by Juu-kuchion August 23, 2013
If you’re a child of the 80s, you are well aware the city life in Duckberg’s like a hurricane.  What with its race cars, lasers, and aeroplanes, it is usually described to be, in a non-scientifically based term: a duck blur.  It’s a place where you might solve a mystery or rewrite history. DuckTales! Woo-oo. […]

“Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance” Video Game Review (PS3)

by Juu-kuchion March 28, 2013
   Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Publisher: Konami Developer: Platinum Games Poor Raiden.  Ever since he burst onto the video game scene with his surprise debut, he’s been the bête-noire of the Metal Gear Solid franchise.  Sure, he got a cybernetic upgrade in the last major title, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, but […]

Like it’s counterpart series The Transformers, G.I. Joe is renowned to have a massive roster of heroes and villains, each with their own defining traits in both aesthetics and personality.

My Little Pony – Can Alicorns be Magic?

by Juu-kuchion February 16, 2013
Well, it finally happened.  After months of speculation, leaks, then an official announcement, we’ve now witnessed Twilight Sparkle become an alicorn princess.  What did I think of how it was pulled off?  Aesthetically not too bad, story-wise exceptionally lifeless and didactic.  It was as if the whole “destiny” part was an afterthought compared to the […]

The Amazing Spider-Man Trailer Analysis

by Juu-kuchion February 12, 2012
Ah how I was unimpressed with the first The Amazing Spider-Man trailer. Despite the intriguing inclusion of Peter Parker’s parents, the melancholic tone, overly trying attempts at profundity , and the first person sequence which felt like a poor man’s version of Mirror’s Edge, did nothing to get me excited for the reboot.    Thankfully, the second […]

Captain America: Super Soldier (Wii) Review

by Juu-kuchion October 25, 2011
Captain America: Super Soldier (Wii) Publisher: Sega Developer: High Voltage Software Captain America: The First Avenger was a tale of triumph against adversity and how one must never lose their character in the face of chaos. However such flowery language is not really fit to describe the game based on the movie: Captain America: Super Soldier. Despite […]

Toonzone Transformers Week – Transformers Dark of the Moon Stealth Force Edition Review!

by Juu-kuchion June 30, 2011
Transformers: Dark of the Moon Stealth Force Edition (Wii) Two hours and twenty-three minutes. That is the duration of my playtime on Transformers: Dark of the Moon: Stealth Force Edition according to my Nintendo Wii. Within that period, I completed 100% of what the game had to offer.
