Remember Me – Untapped Potential

203300_frontRemember Me is an action-adventure sci-fi game from the incredible minds that brought us the universally adored Life is Strange. Yet their sophomore effort has totally eclipsed Dontnod’s ironically forgotten first foray into the world of gaming. So, as a look into Dontnod’s very brief history, I’ve decided to play through Remember Me to see whether this game actually deserves it’s titular request.

5 Sentence Review – The Hateful Eight

MV5BMjA1MTc1NTg5NV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwOTM2MDEzNzE@._V1_SX214_AL_The Hateful Eight is Quentin Tarantino’s imaginatively titled eighth installment in a filmography that just never fail to dish out high quality entertainment as well as lashings of blood and guts. The cast do a phenomenal job, with them all vying for prime position as the one we remember leaving theatre, however it is to the ever present Samuel L. Jackson and (at least to me) new name Jennifer Jason Leigh that keep me thinking back to that sweet (or not so sweet) stay at Minnie’s Haberdashery.

The Chronic Chronicler – 2015 in Review

Well 2015 is finally over and, in terms of this blog, it’s thankfully over. It hasn’t been much of an improvement over 2014 but I hope to get back into the swing of things next year! Thank you to everyone who’s read, commented and possibly even shared by ramblings, it means quite a lot.

I hope to do some  different stuff next year so I can keep up so I can be a bit more regular and maybe even get over the ten thousand views mark (so close this year though). So Happy New Year and I hope you all have a wonderful 2016!

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 9,800 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens -The Hype is Strong With This One

10013975_10151911107816237_2006838378_nI have now officially disembarked the hype train and have arrived in actually having seen the film station, where your destination is never guaranteed to be the one you want. The destinations have never been guaranteed for Star Wars fans and, after a few bad trips a decade ago, the Star Wars line has been resurrected and only fervent passengers have clambered aboard in hope that, this time,  their destinations will be like the ones of old where all was new and untainted.
