Surprisingly Good TV – Riverdale

Have you ever gone through TV channels or through your Netflix account, looking at the many names of shows and just skipping over them, perhaps with a momentary judgement towards them? Maybe their names seem over the top or the logo seems silly, or perhaps even the genre is not your usual thing.

But then, one day, you’re extremely bored or you read or heard about some of those shows or films and decide, “yeah, I’ll watch the first episode,” and suddenly “how bad could it be?” turns into a day or binge-watching an entire season, or looking forward to the next week’s entry.

I rarely give Early Access titles a look, as I’m not a fan of the platform. But having played and done videos on ongoing episodic games such as The Slaughter and Steve Jackson’s Sorcery! I thought it would be a good idea to take a look at what the guys at The Game Kitchen have cooked up for this season!

I played through the first episode, I liked it, though I got stuck a couple of times because I didn’t realise an obvious clue as fast as I should’ve and then I forgot how to read roman numbers…yeah…

Review: Beautiful Bones – Sakurako’s Investigation

Over the past few weeks I’ve been catching up on series I missed in the past months, particularly with Anime. That’s how I found Sakurakosan no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru (translated as Beautiful Bones – Sakurako’s Investigaion). Many sites and forums described it as Bones the animation. As someone who enjoyed Bones until it got too tiresome, I decided to give it a shot.

I was pleasantly surprised. Continue reading Review: Beautiful Bones – Sakurako’s Investigation
