Devil May Cry (Game Series Review)

Last summer, I took on the daunting task of playing every Far Cry game that there is (aside from some ports and remakes) and write Progress Reviews; I’d do a slight pre-review, then write down my thoughts at 1, 5, 10, 15 etc hours of gameplay until completion, and end with a more polished review for eachContinue reading “Devil May Cry (Game Series Review)”

What Defined 2018 For You?

Obviously, this title refers to “entertainment” and not, well, actually meaningful occurrences. Also, I sort of made a “Best Of” post but it was largely unpolished and I still had a little bit of catching up to do. Finally, I hope this post is more of an open discussion than a lecture, which blogging seemsContinue reading “What Defined 2018 For You?”

Audience Experience May Vary

Books. Movies. Games. The three of those media each specialize in certain forms of narrative storytelling, forms based around presentation and audience participation. In this essay, I’m going to briefly go over how I interpret these three forms of storytelling and how each differ in their pros and cons. Books First, books: the classic formContinue reading “Audience Experience May Vary”

Adaptation Comparison: The BFG

The BFG is a 1982 young adult fantasy novel published by Roald Dahl about a young girl, Sophie, who gets taken away in the night by the titular Big Friendly Giant. The story is very simple and takes place all in one day: the Giant takes Sophie back to his cave, they learn about each other’sContinue reading “Adaptation Comparison: The BFG”

Adaptation Comparison: Silence

In this post, I will be reviewing the book, and then reviewing the movie as I would any other, but also review it as an adaptation of the book.
