Oxenfree feels very nostalgic, like jumping into an old school supernatural thriller movie, the ones with a bunch of teenagers. The protagonist is going on an island trip with some friends and her new stepbrother. Everyone has their own issues, which start to culminate as the island begins revealing its eerie mystery.
Elsewhere High is a kinetic mystery novel about a special school and the bunch of kids going there. The first chapter is free, so all friends of visual novels should give it a go. Third chapter is coming out this summer. Continue reading →
Yet another high school comedy with a dreamy bishounen romantic interest? Well yes. Kaichou wa Maid-sama! delivers pretty much what it promises. It’s filled with funny characters, silly slice of life and high school cliches, and it’s very entertaining if one enjoys it as it is. Continue reading →
The last year. Sorry about being lazier the further I got with the decade. But aren’t we going out with a bang? So much good stuff that I just want to weep. Fight Club and The Matrix are in the IMDb top20. Sixth Sense, The Green Mile and American Beauty a bit further down. Even skipping all these, I have a lot of issues limiting things down to 5. And I shouldn’t skip them really, they’re all great psychological movies, albeit from very different angles. Continue reading →
Nearing the end… First I thought I’d only have a couple of movies for this year but looking into it a bit more I didn’t end up having hard time at all finding five (and more) suitable films for the year.
I won’t bring the boring categories back, but there’s at least Johnny Depp! I don’t remember enough about these movies, I’ve only watched Dark City in the recent years, but they were awesome back then, so I still believe them to be awesome today – and will eventually confirm this by watching them again. The movies are arranged according to their current IMDb popularity. Continue reading →
I have a friend that was born in late 80s and thus missed out on a lot of 90s movies, while it probably was the most active movie watching time for myself. So I figured I’d recommend some great films to her and it quickly ended up being a dozen. Then I figured, why not pick a movie or a few for each year and recommend it to others as well.
I ended up limiting this to 5 movies per year and even then I had serious troubles narrowing it down in certain years. Continue reading →
Life Is Strange is one of those games I knew right away I’d end up loving. And I was not disappointed. A lot of old school adventure fans complain about the new interactive movie type of gameplay with no pointing & clicking or puzzles but I never was stuck with the old school idea (even though I do love many old school adventures myself) and I’m really happy to see a game totally nailing the new play style instead of just throwing around some unintuitive QTE-sequences here and there. LIS plays great, it has a great atmosphere and an interesting plot. Continue reading →
