Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: The Pixcelation Review

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: The Pixcelation Review

riseapes2

So the alternate title for this review was “Why you should definitely be spending your money on one of the best movies of the year,” but since it is a sequel, I’ll do a brief synopsis of the plot and then get along with it. No spoilers, I promise!

Ten years have passed since the events of Rise of the Planet of Apes, in which Caesar and the rest of the primates that were tested on escaped from…

Recap/Review: True Blood 5x05: Lost Cause

Recap/Review: True Blood 5×05: Lost Cause

This was actually one of the happier episodes of this season, believe it or not. Especially with a title like “Lost Cause,” it might make one think we’d have a lot of loss this week. But surprisingly, no one died. Yeah, you heard it here. No one died. As surprising as that fact may be, would you like to know what ISN’T surprising? The staggering amount of relationship drama in this episode.

I will not be formally reviewing it in this piece, but I will be talking about the good and the bad that I’ve noticed thus far.

For those unfamiliar, Destinyis actually one of the first games of its kind…

#TBT: Pixcelation does a TBT review of Max Payne

In July of 2001, Remedy Entertainment brought a dark, noir-film inspired game with an appropriately action-oriented named main character with Max Payne. The game came out on PC, then, with the help of Grand Theft Autodeveloper Rockstar Games, the game was brought to the original Xbox, the Playstation 2, and (for some reason) the Gameboy Advance, and was met with a wide audience. This game came at…

Recap/Review: Free! Eternal Summer 2x03

Recap/Review: Free! Eternal Summer 2×03

Last time on Free! Eternal Summer! Pretty much nothing happened … it’s was kind of boring and oversaturated with bishie stare downs and face-palms prompted by Haru’s brain-damaged thoughts. Will this week’s episode “The Butterfly of Farewell” impress? Let’s all hope so.

We start off with little Nitori crying over Rin’s inevitable graduation into the senior dorms. Instead, he’ll have to deal…

An InuKai Retrospect: MegaMan Xtreme and MegaMan Xtreme 2 Review

megaman_xtreme_thumb

I am big into Mega Man. There is no denying it. Ever since I learned just how fun the Blue Bomber proved to be, I’ve been wanting more and more. Now, considering the dry spell CAPCOM has given us these days, I can’t help but look forward to when Mighty No. 9 comes out. Until then, I decided to take a look at my 3DS’s eShop to discover two MegaMan Xspinoffs that I played and enjoyed almost 13…

It’s crazy to think that the original PlayStation console was announced in Japan all the way back in 1994. That means the PlayStation is 20 years old this year. Let that sink in.

In celebration of the console that led the mainstream polygonal gaming revolution (the Nintendo 64 wasn’t releasedin Japan until 1996), here are the top ten PlayStation franchises that we believe were given the short end…

New Super Smash Bros. Character Reveals

robin and falcon

Today is a good day to be a Fire Emblem fan. I’ll be the first to admit that a lot of the past character reveals for the next Super Smash Bros. haven’t really wowed me, but this one did just that. Fire Emblem Awakening has turned out to be one of, if not the most, well received game in the entire series, I even gave the game a perfect score last year, and it seems Nintendo is aware of its…
