  • I Am Wrath
    I didn’t really think I would like this film just based off of John Travolta’s wig on the cover but surprisingly you don’t notice it as much after a while. All jokes, aside I highly recommend this film if you like action and violence or John Travolta.

  • I Am Setsuna Game Review
    It’s been too long, and man… was this nostalgic. The game offers everything that I personally enjoy in traditional JRPGs, however, I did realize that a lot of the content seemed “recycled” from other JRPGs (story, battle system, etc). While it may not be a bad thing for some, I am Setsuna delivers with a well-crafted soundtrack, great visuals, and even revived traditional RPG elements that we enjoy, such as crafting and tech combos.
