Shrek Extra Large Review

Babbling

Let me take you back to 2001, gaming wise. It was the rise of the sixth generation of gaming. The first year the GameCube was released, the time the PS2 was gaining more traction, the year the original XBOX (greatest console ever) came out, a time of… so-so launch titles that weren’t by the companies marketing the systems. What I mean by that is that developers were still accustomed to the standards of the fifth generation of gaming, hence why we had titles on the PlayStation up to 2002 (and I’m drawing the line there because only those with no shame would ever release PlayStation titles in, say 2004 or 2005 (seriously, one of each exists). There was a window for improvement, and it gradually grew overtime.

Now let’s take a look at Shrek. A name that was once synonymous with a decent children’s film, and is now best associated with memes, memes galore, and that’s about it.

Now I know what you’re thinking, why did I start off with nothing but drivel? Well, this ties in to my experience with the following game. Read more

Nancy Drew Retrospective: Top 10 Culprits

Hello, everyone! Mediaman here, with what will hopefully not be my last Nancy Drew related blog this year (I heard that Midnight in Salem might be released sometime in 2017). There’s one element I haven’t covered from this game series: the culprits. Over the course of these 32 games, we’ve had culprits in every conceivable form. They were smart, sympathetic, dull, sinister, and even scary at times. So today, I’m counting down the top 10 Nancy Drew culprits. Now, keep in mind that just because I think these culprits are good doesn’t mean that the games themselves are good. Sometimes, the best bad guys can come from the worst games. Also, MAJOR spoilers ahead! But before we start the list, let’s get some honorable mentions out of the way.

  • Shorty (Secret of Shadow Ranch): Sometimes, it can be downright spooky just how easily nice characters can just rid themselves of their emotions when they’re revealed to be the culprits. And with Shorty, I feel his reveal is the most jarring.
  • Mike and Pua (Creature of Kapu Cave): I’m trying to limit this list to culprits who don’t end up repenting when they get caught. But these two deserve a mention due to the sheer scale of their plan.
  • Victor Lossett (The Deadly Device): Here’s a villain who’s smarter than the rest. It’s too bad his motivation was just to make money. I was hoping for something deeper after they made it a point to discuss what drives someone to murder.
  • Lori Girard (Last Train to Blue Moon Canyon): Admit it, she took you by surprise. Who would’ve guessed that someone that filled every blonde stereotype in the book had such a devious mind?
