Bayonetta: Bloody Fate review

Bayonetta: Bloody Fate review
Bayonetta: Bloody Fate manages to retain the over-the-top nature of the videogame with a lot of action, crazy lines and fun references (yes, we do see her start up a motorcycle in that way). From Gonzo and director Fuminori Kizaki of Afro Samurai, Bloody Fate is a somewhat loose adaptation of Platinum Games’ videogame, which was released back in 2009, as the Umbran witch Bayonetta awakens after 500 years to retrieve her lost memories. Opening with... 

Living Through Literature: Classic Alice Brings Books To Life on Campus

Living Through Literature: Classic Alice Brings Books To Life on Campus
English major and aspiring writer Alice Rackham has “always been good”. A straight-A student with a Hermione Granger-esque dedication to her studies, her intelligence and hard work have earned her a place at the prestigious Valeton University. However, when an essay is returned to her marked B-, with comments accusing her of “sterile” writing and a lack of emotional connection to a poem, Alice resolves to follow in the footsteps of classic...

Grand Theft Auto V, Taking Mayhem to the Next Generation

Grand Theft Auto V, Taking Mayhem to the Next Generation
The characters look sharper than ever, and the backgrounds are masterpieces of their own. 13 months after the initial release of Grand Theft Auto V, which blew us away in our review, Rockstar have given violence and villainy enthusiasts the chance to return to sunny Los Santos in glorious 1080p for PS4 and Xbox One. The result is a beautifully polished version of an instant classic to next-gen that gives new players a definitive edition of the game... 

Yu-Gi-Oh! The Official First Season DVD Review

Yu-Gi-Oh! The Official First Season DVD Review
If you’re anything like us here at MCM Buzz, you probably grew up alongside a cavalcade of anime that made your childhood – Dragon Ball Z, Beyblade, Pokémon, and in particular for me at least, Yu-Gi-Oh! The card game based anime gave us so many memories that we still take with us today. So when I heard the first season of one of my favourite coming of age television shows was having its entire first season released on a box set, well, I sure... 

Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 12 Review: Death in Heaven

Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 12 Review: Death in Heaven
While last week’s episode, Dark Water – the part one of this two part series finale – felt like an agonising slow burn to get to a point we knew was coming after all the promotional material (that is to say, the fact that Cybermen play a big part in this finale), Death in Heaven, written by Steven Moffat yet again, leaps right into things with a rather witty cold open. Death in Heaven is a wonderfully strong series finale for Doctor... 

Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 11 Review: Dark Water

Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 11 Review: Dark Water
Showrunner Steven Moffat once again takes the writing reins for a two-part Doctor Who finale, and its first part certainly knows how to kick things off. Dark Water is the first in this dual-episode finale for Series 8, and from the first scene it’s already quite the mindbend. Needless to say, this episode is one fraught with spoilers, right from the word go that’s the case. By the first few minutes you’re hooked and confused, which... 

Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 10 Review: In the Forest of the Night

Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 10 Review: In the Forest of the Night
A great Doctor Who episode can always do with a good mystery, and this week’s is no exception. When you have a seasoned writer like Frank Cottrell Boyce take the reins of writing an episode of Doctor Who, you know you’re in for an interesting tale. In the Forest of the Night is a rather interesting tale that’s spun this week, with a mystery in contemporary London that baffles The Doctor (Peter Capaldi), Clara (Jenna Coleman), and... 

WWE: The Best of Sting DVD and Blu Ray Review

WWE: The Best of Sting DVD and Blu Ray Review
Before the united era of WWE, there wasn’t just one major wrestling company in America. WWE’s biggest rival through the ages was a company that had its roots in the NWA, but soon became a company of its own; WCW. Like any wrestling company, WCW needed a top face for its company, and this DVD/Blu-ray looks at the wrestler many feel was the company man for WCW, a man that has still not wrestled under the Vince McMahon banner… The... 

Robotics;Notes part 2 review

Robotics;Notes part 2 review
It was already made pretty clear from my review of Robotics;Notes part 1 that I was less than impressed with how the series set itself up. Just as a miniature recap to provide some context, I found the story to be a spider web of many different storylines that were hard to keep track of and understand. There were already plenty of unanswered questions and I feared that the plot holes would grow larger and larger. Despite my many disappointments,...
