‘Soul Calibur VI’ Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

Soul Calibur VI had a lot riding on its success. Soul Calibur 5 was blasted for its weak story and how it replaced popular characters with not so great successors (if you can call them that). There were some people ready to declare the series as dead after its long absence. The decision was made […]

Streamers Connected at MCM Comic Con London 2018

by Xenia Grounds

Who are Streamers Connected? The best way to describe them is they are an international community of streamers. It’s a community that has grown very quickly as it was founded in August 2017 and what they have achieved in over a year is impressive to say the least. Since their launch, their Discord now has […]

MCM London Oct 2018: Nolan North & Richard McGonagle Interview

by Xenia Grounds

What’s the hardest thing about playing an alien? Richard: Well, it depends on which show. The hardest part is going back to being a human again, I think, because we’re not an alien usually. Are you able to go back into your own voice easily? Richard: No, it’s pretty easy. A voice like that if […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’ Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

My experience with Assassin’s Creed is pretty limited. I’ve only played Syndicate in full but I have paid attention to reactions to the series. I’m aware that not every Assassin’s Creed game has been a hit but the same could be said for every series that runs for a long time. The question is: Is Assassin’s […]

‘Yuri!!! on Ice: The Complete Series’ Blu-ray Review

by Xenia Grounds

It’s hard to believe now considering how popular it is but Yuri!!! On Ice was a gamble as far as animes go. It was an original story, a same-sex relationship was a massive part of the plot and it had a large focus on figure skating (which isn’t the most popular sport in the world) […]

At the risk of losing some of my credibility as a nerd, I’ve never been to an MCM convention. Truth be told, I don’t really go to conventions. Not because I don’t want to but because I’ve never found the time for it. However, if all MCM conventions are like the one that happened this […]
