‘Ni No Kuni II’ is an absolutely incredible JRPG. It doesn’t revolutionize the genre, but does it so well that few other games can come close. The world is beautiful, the characters are likable, and the combat is some of the best in the genre. This is easily one of the best JRPGs of the past decade and, if it wasn't for Persona 5, it might be the best. If you loved the first game, love JRPGs, or even just love fun action-based gameplay, this game is highly recommended.

"Still Gotta Mean Something" holds tight to the tried and true recipe of the series by creating interesting plots and disappointing everyone with a lackluster payoff. Despite a great opening and a fantastic scene with Rick and Morgan, nothing happens. Nothing ever happens. This series is starting to get on my nerves.
Our generation, the Millennials, is at its peak. We are pushing for change, rallying behind each other, standing together. Our voice is a united front against those who doubt, mock and threaten us.
'Pacific Rim: Uprising' is a step down when compared to its predecessor. The story has major plot problems, and some of the new Jaeger pilots need more fleshing out. However, the movie more than makes up for this with fantastic performances from the lead actors, interesting and awesome new Jaeger designs, and great action scenes.
'Ready Player One' is a movie that has redeeming qualities. It visually looks amazing, and the performances put in are all incredibly solid. Its story is bland and inoffensive. The major problems lie in cringy writing, a really embarrassing romance subplot, and sound design that fails to match its stellar visuals. And of course, it’s loaded with pop culture references that may be good for some, but made the movie just unbearable to watch. It reminds of me something… but I can’t come up with a reference that fits this movie.
The only alarming thing to come out of 'Vessel' is the realization of just what the band could do next within their genre. Instrumentally, the record is an indie pop masterpiece, a gorgeous fusion of sonic innovation and contextual efficiency. As one of the most personality-driven acts around, Frankie Cosmos had a tall order replicating the mood and temperament of past releases. Fortunately they evolved yet again, throwing more complex, but still realistic subjects onto the audience. Finally, the emerging talent of Bailey, Martin, and Pyenson takes center stage, an emergence that simply states that future Frankie Cosmos conquests may further employ the capabilities of these underrated musicians.
We're back witches, with another magical episode of the Coven Podcast. This week, we're looking at the toxic masculinity. What is toxic masculinity, who is affected, who is helping, what is going on with defense on either side? All of these will be answered and more will be discussed on this episode of The Coven.
The smell of cigarettes and cheap bar food cling to my clothes as I sip my flat diet coke while sitting in the middle of a sports bar somewhere in small-town Indiana on Sunday evening.
The night before the results of the 2016 election came out, I watched the news and anxiously bit my nails, hoping it was all a bad dream as Trump won electoral votes.
Derek “Daddy Derek” Savage is an author and filmmaker most known for his kids’ safety public service announcement: Cool Cat Saves the Kids. And soon he’ll be directing his next film Cool Cat Stops a School Shooting.
This week’s episode is absolute garbage and none of it should’ve been given the okay to air on television. Poor acting, poor writing, and poor lighting plagued "Do Not Send Us Astray." Everything was mishandled and there are no true redeeming qualities in this episode. Don’t waste your time. Watch 'The Flash' or something that isn’t this show.
Pew Research Center defines “Millennials” as those aged 22-35, and also says that as of April 2016, Millennials made up 31 percent of the voter pool with a population of 69.2 million.
'A Way Out' will keep your attention for the entirely of its story. Leo and Vincent are both fascinating characters with relatable motivations, even if the story has some cliche plot points and wooden dialogue. Most of the minigames are somewhat out of place for the game’s story with their weird mechanics, but provide some fun distractions for you and your co-op partner. I would recommend this game to anyone that is looking to have some enjoyment with friends, and if they are looking for some action and a suspenseful story. You will definitely not want to miss this prison-break friendship that creates a stomach-punching finale.
In the end, 'O,FN II' is absolutely worth checking out. If you aren’t familiar with the band, I would recommend listening to this EP first before moving onto 'Okay, For Now.' While the sound is certainly different, it isn’t bad by any means. If you like to listen to music when working on other things or just want a mellow tune to calm you down, this is easily the EP for you. It’ll be interesting to see where Stay Outside goes from here.
“Hir and Now” explores the long-standing relationships between queerness and the theatre. It brings in such disparate evidence as Will Cather’s short story “Paul’s Case” and Kinky Boots. The discussion takes on queer stereotypes as well as the welcoming outlet for queer performers that theatre in America has long represented.
I had a Facebook memory pop up the other day that almost made me cry.
The quarterfinals this year were quite historic, for once. Every single team who previously won an LCS split has now been knocked out, leaving an empty banner for either a new team fresh into the split or a team who has been competing for the banner for a while now. How did this happen?
