MCM Expo London Recap

Image result for mcm london expo

Apologies for the late posting about MCM London Comic Con May 2017, camera glitch which caused the loss of all my photos and videos, #Feelsbadman. I am working on recovering the photos, and will add them in the post if I manage to get some for the article.

Usually when we write these reviews, we stick to a tried and tested set of questions to answer and
gauge the con in that retrospect. This last MCM Expo I decided to make a change and let people know who were in a situation like myself, you're at the con but you're broke and feeling kinda low about it.

First off, just because you have no money doesn't mean you can't have a good time at MCM. The event organisers make sure there are lots of activities that you can partake in, and if you are that way inclined there are cosplay meetups and photo shoots arranged by third parties.

So, first off I will take you through my convention visit and then run through what else there was available. 

Nintendo E3 2017 Press Conference Recap


Nintendo capped off 2017's E3 with their 25 minute digital conference. Followed immediately after with their standard Nintendo Treehouse, their presentation offered some surprise reveals, and a greater look on some titles that we already knew were incoming. 

It was great to see Nintendo fully embracing the Switch, this time around. Whilst the Wii U sadly gathered some dust, the line-up and 3rd party support is larger for the Switch. 

Check out all of the reveals below!

E3: What We Want in Animal Crossing for Nintendo Switch


The above tweet is just one comment I saw today from an Animal Crossing fan. We've been crying out for a new console version of this popular series for ages, and with the Nintendo Switch out now, it seems like the perfect time. And no, we don't want another dreadful Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival! 

So, we've established at in this time of E3 announcements and Nintendo's upcoming E3 conference, that fans want a new Animal Crossing. But, what should Nintendo be featuring in their Switch version? Join me as I share some of the bits and bobs that I think they should include.

Dark Rose Valkyrie review

A rose, by any other name...


I'm going to start this review using a some what clunky simile. Dark rose Valkyrie is like a cool substitute teacher, they seem down with the kids as they casually swear, do interesting experiments involving fire and let the class take the lesson outside in the sun...but then the time comes to do the exams at the end of the year and it dawns on you that you don't understand a single thing that's being asked and then you gentle weep as you try and muddle your way though it all. What I ultimately mean is that DRV has some good stuff within in it, including plenty of enjoyable visual novel aspects and a fun combat system...but it's bogged down by poor explanations of in game mechanics, far too many different and useless systems within the combat system and deeply muddled menus....there's a fun game in there, but you'll really have to dig through the undergrowth to find it.

My top 5...Master System 2 games.



Oh hai, Jason here.


Ah the Master System II, the first console to recieve a sequel. Yet its origins can be traced back to Sega's Mark III console from 1985. Because that's not confusing as hell at all. The Mark III eventually gained enough EXP to evolve into the master system and once the system travelled to the European region it reached its final form...the Master system 2. Which also has the proud distinction of being my very first wander into console land.

The Master System had several memorable features including the sliding lid (good), the pause button located on the console itself (bad), Alex Kidd in miracle world being installed in every system (good), a relatively small catalogue of games (bad), and the maths text book paper box art that was on every game case (good if you needed to do long division but didn't have graph paper to hand). So lets get on with this shizz and find out what my 5 favourite Master System II games were. Oh and as always this list is based on the games I owned when I was a diddy kid, so if I didn't own it, then it can't be on the list.
