Ranking the Overwatch Shorts

Written by Shiggins

Four more years! Four more years!

With Overwatch turning two this month, and myself having played over 200 hours on the thing (which is pretty casual when compared to some other players), I wanted to devote my time to highlighting the love I feel for one of Overwatch's greatest assets; Their animated shorts! These amazing videos, usually consisting of just under 10 minutes, have been heavily praised and adored by fans all over, but which one is the best (so far)? And more importantly, which one features the most Tracer?

Digimon Adventure Tri Part 6; Future - No Hope for the Future

Written by Shiggins

Thank Homeostasis that's over!

Those who have read my previous reviews of Digimon Adventure Tri will know that I wasn't looking forward to this finale. I grew up with Digimon Adventure and Tamers, but I'm not the type of guy who is so nostalgia-blinded that sequels instantly make me vomit. I adored Dragon Ball Super, after all. Tri on the other hand has been a ride full of ups and downs, and I was concerned that they wouldn't be able to conclude it well. And...

Note: Spoilers for all six sections of Digimon Adventure Tri.

Deadpool 2 - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins

This review was brought to you by the writer of those Fairy Tail chapter reviews!

It was inevitable that the most successful adult movie of all time so far, 2016's Deadpool, would get a sequel as quickly as possible. Well-received and tons of fun, despite such a low budget, the movie was praised from the mountains by fans and foes alike. And while I didn't go that far, I still thought it was a fun film that gave me a nice relief from the serious drama of other superhero flicks. And after the raw drama of Infinity War, it was nice to have some warm fuzzy comedy covered in blood.

Note: This is a spoiler-free review.

Mikan School - Serious Art

Written by Shiggins

Well, this was a surprise!

As you all know from my reviews in the past, I'm not afraid to be blunt. It's one of the benefits of being Scottish. So when I was asked to take a look at this business, I didn't know how to take it at first. However, I quickly realised that they wanted me to be honest and blunt about what I thought of them of them. So I logged in, gave it a look, and now I can tell you all about Mikan School, what it is they do and how I felt going into it.

Avengers: Infinity War - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins

10 years, 19 movies, countless heroes!

In 2008, Iron Man crashed into cinemas. None of us predicted that in ten years time, we'd be able to sit down and watch as dozens of well-developed Marvel characters from an entire roster of bright and sparkling movies would be ganging up together in one of the biggest crossover movies of all time. And yet here we are, with the beginning of the climatic showdown that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been building up to for so long. So the big question is... Does it live up to the hype?

To Infinity War, and beyond!
NOTE: This is a spoiler-free review, however I will include spoilers at the bottom of the article. If you wish to avoid spoilers, then you may read until my score and do not go past the SPOILER STONE in the article. I warned you.

Top 10 Dragon Ball Super Fights

Top 10 Dragon Ball Super Fights
Written by: ClayDragon & Shiggins

Now that Dragon Ball Super has finished airing (for the moment) and we’ve had some time to come down off of the massive high that it gave us, we figured that we’d take a look at some of the best fights this sequel series had to offer. To be eligible for this list, the battle had to have been first shown in Super, so fights that were first shown in the Battle of Gods and Resurrection F movies will not be included here.

As is this the case with many of these lists, SPOILER ALERT. You have been warned.

What is the One Piece? - Theories

Written by Shiggins

900 chapters and we still don't know!

The fact that One Piece is still so supremely popular, despite not even revealing the secret behind its own title, is nothing short of a miracle. In fact, it just keeps adding story lines instead of concluding them! And so, it is time to celebrate the release of over 900 chapters of this series (seriously, that is impressive) by tossing my own straw hat in and giving some guesses as to what I think the mysterious treasure known only as "One Piece" could be!

I swear to God, if it turns out to be that damn hat...

Ready Player One - Movie Review

Written by Shiggins

Unleash the references of war!

When Wreck-It Ralph was first being announced, all the trailers made it look like it was going to be a festival of characters from other properties working off of each other. Many went to see the movie, expecting to see Ralph and Bowser hanging out together, but it was quickly revealed that the film wanted to focus on its own story and that the other characters were just icing on the cake. And that situation is what Ready Player One finds itself in.

So many references... and yet I didn't see one single Pikachu!

Ranking Every Adaptation of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Written by Shiggins


With Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles bringing the green quartet back to the 2D playing field, in supremely divisive fashion, I thought it might be fun to look back at the classics and see how many times the Turtles have been in the spotlight and which one was the best... and you'd be surprised how many of them aren't good.

Note: This list does not include the comics or video games.

This has the potential to be a masterpiece or a disaster. Either way, it's going to be epic.
