  1. I went with the Ugoos Cube X2 seems good the right balance between build quality and price.

    Got mine just over 50 euros locally went with 2gb ram version which is more than enough for coreelec etc...

    there is a pro version with 32gb storage and 4gb ram at about roughly 15 euros more but then it wasn't available locally

    then if you want something more premium there is also ugoos am6 although it is double the price

    other premium products vero 4k+ or odroid n2 (n2 does not seem to have optical spdif also its more diy)

    more basic products xiaomi mix box, mecool km3 or km9 (<--- but none had optical spdif and gigabit lan)

    then the real budget boxes would be one of the x96 ones...


    Again for me right balance between quality price features is the Ugoos cube x2




  2. Looking for something that has:

    That is a bit more powerful compared to cube mix plus M3 7Y30 intel hd 615

    8gb ram and 256gb ssd etc... (or an ssd etc... that is easy to upgrade)

    screen bigger than 10.6 and preferably but not 100% necessarily no more than 13.3

    its important to be reasonably light and compact so its easy to take around with me and so I can work on my projects


    I wouldnt mind to be able to play rocket league but outside of that Im not interested in pc gaming on the go


    I would like to be able to use emulators  up to dolphin for gamecube and possibly pcsx2 for ps2 games.

    Not interested in upping all the settings for the emulators resolution etc... I'm happy to keep things native for performance.


    I had cube mix plus it done me well played most gamecube games perfectly

    very few ps2 games a lot that i wanted to play came close but just not quite there to make it an enjoyable experience

    I did really like cube mix plus until... 

    So I had it for over a year tablet part still works very well but the keyboard many times acts up and it can get very frustrating when I'm working on work or projects and thats why I need to get something new and I initially was looking to buy a new keyboard but couldn't find one anywhere banggood seemed to be promoting to use a logitech one with it but one its does not have a touchpad and two it doesnt even fit right and doesnt feel secured that and wanting a slightly bigger screen and double the ram and hard drive space.


    I also had gpd win which was great especially for emulators like gamecube but felt too gaming specific and hard for other things like work and projects


    Budget up to 500 euros I originally spent about 250 euros for cube mix plus brand new (after cashback bonuses)

    I am willing to go near double of what I spent but it would be hard to go any higher because I feel like it wouldn't really be worth it for what I need


    Reason for posting here is I was searching a lot on aliexpress amazon and ebay but I find many new devices but other than the ram and hard drive upgrade it seems to be using weaker processors and graphics to what I have right now 

    Of course I need to change because of the keyboard but I want to feel like I'm getting something that is underpowered compared to the cube mix plus.


    Thanks for reading :D

  3. Hi I currently have a beelink gt1 but I want to get something better
    I used beelink gt1 that boots straight into coreelec from a micro sd and I stay similar to that (coreelec libreelec osmc etc...)
    But I am not sure what to get... For me its about a balance between quality and price.
    The requirements that I need to have
    - optical/spdif output so I can connect directly to and use my logitech z906 5.1 surround speakers. (as my screen does not have it)
    - at least 1 USB 3 Port (I have multiple portable hard drives from which I play my content)
    (and another usb 2 port for a controller)
    - Ability to duel boot coreelec libreelec etc... (something officially supported?) and android etc... or boot only into coreelec etc...
    - Something that is reasonably fast and responsive that can load the cover art etc... for my media quickly
    - Wifi Stable but speed does not matter as much

    The following would be more like bonuses not requirements as long as it does not add a huge extra cost
    - 4K HDR etc... (I may consider a 1080p instead one but it would have to be a great one at a much cheaper price)
    (Most content I watch is in 720p or 1080p but I do watch some 4K)
    - 1000 LAN port (Not a 100% requirement but would be a bonus)
    - Reasonably future proof / that I would use it for a good while hence the above two

    I have looked at various recommendations on various sites
    A lot of boxes sometimes does not have the optical spdif out which automatically rules them out.
    Was half considering the ugoos am6, rev a or b? Problem is a lot of sites dont mention what rev it is.
    Was conflicted with the price because the prices for it approach closer to 150 euros 
    whereas I would be more looking in between 50 and 100 (if its really good)

    I don't want something that is cheap cheap but I also may not necessarily need a premium product.

    Happy if anyone has suggestions that would be great

  4. Introduction






    Just like Second Son this game is beautiful, and all the affects sounds great, pretty good soundtrack. not much more to say





    Even though your limited to neon powers, it is still awesome.

    Especially considering neon was my favourite power from second son.

    It is simply fun to play and I believe the two infamous games for the ps4

    reached a new level on the ps4 with that polish compared to the previous ps3 titles which honestly i could not get into, but here in terms of graphics and gameplay is amazing.

    Again it is nothing new but that does not always mean a bad thing.





    Well, Fetch is a much more interesting character I was always more ingaged of Fetch's story compared to second son, storyline is very good although the game and story is 

    somewhat short but its not a full priced ps4 game which is nice.




    Even if it was limited it still improved on a few things compared to second son ie the story

    yeah its short but it was never a full priced game so therefor i can let that slide


    My Score: 9/10

  5. This drama aint perfect

    but the things that it done well it was really done well


    the emotions of the characters are amazing 

    look if i was giving a score only based on the actors and the cast

    it would be 10/10


    at times it feels a bit messy and there are flaws plus plot holes here and there.

    which for me keeps it from being among the legendary

    but its still a damn good kdrama 


    main issue for me is way of the eps were done

    1st half past 2nd half future


    like at the start i really enjoyed the past parts

    as it introduced the characters great chemistry between the brothers, interesting plot 

    but future kinda just threw a lot at the start and initially it was hard to understand whats what


    later once things were set in motion the future parts became a lot more better

    a lot exciting better everything


    but then creates another issue that the future parts start to spoil the following

    past parts which then slightly affected my enjoyment of the past parts 


    there were some amazing emotional scenes and other scenes which saved those past 

    parts but still best order of the eps or halves of eps couldve added an extra bit


    the overall story was great really interesting, great universe


    it felt high stakes too at times exciting which was great


    ending was strong but just has the drama was ending things then it kinda threw in a cliffhanger / possible season 2 which has not happened.... and for me that does affect the score

    a pity too because before that I was almost forgiving of any other flaw


    My Score is a 8.5/10

  6. AR is a great concept for a drama and with high production values it did get me excited


    There were pacing issues mainly in the early eps

    it over used the slow motion showing the face way

    too many times and felt like it took ages to move on at times.

    They must've known because they rarely do it later after ep 3


    When things get started it was a fun drama to watch

    from the funny moments to the exciting, nervous, intense, romantic moments

    as the drama progressed the tone was more serious as the stakes were higher

    understanably slow


    over use of flashbacks

    I like them when done right but every ep had some kind of a flashback at the very least

    but a lot and again epsecially earlier on

    it felt messy as if scenes were swapped around

    felt weird what is going on then next scene ah

    those i feel are 90% pointless unless if it was done as a twist


    I think the plot was decent


    Consistency They were watching Yoo Jin Woo playing the game in the first few eps

    then they just dropped it


    Plot holes


    The cast was fantastic, characters were great also


    Yoo Jin Woo

    Was fantastic, great performance especially him and he interacted well with all of the other characters


    I'm actually going to defend the character Jung Hee Joo

    she's fragile but not weak, lost both of her parents, suddenly had a lot of responsibility as being the eldest child

    giving up on her dream, working multiple jobs to support her family including running a hostel which is not easy.

    Not being in a relationship

    Then when certain things happen i think its okay to be emotional its okay to cry.


    I dont have issues with any of the characters although I will say some dont feature enough on screen with their own thing going on

    as it is very focused on Yoo Jin Woo


    Soundtrack was great never felt out of place

    The sets the scenery beautiful which combined with brilliant cinematroghy it makes a treat to watch many times.


    Romance was good but not at the elite level

    It doesn't help when the only time the camerman failed was the kiss scene its like the cameraman tried his best to

    not show the kiss!


    the drama almost felt like it was full of itself at times

    as if it knew it was something special and epic

    and in many ways it was and should've been.


    My Score is a 8.5/10



  7. Alan Wake

    This game is one of my favourites I would love to see a sequel for this

    as this + american nightmare still holds up today and runs great on my xbox one s.


    Mirror's Edge

    Even though I liked the reboot but the story meh it went in a very different direction compared to the original. i wish could take parts from each then make a new one.



    I have to admit I actually enjoyed this game, it was kinda like mirrors edge meet an online shooter. for me it was actually pretty good fun. sadly it had a huge lack of content. with more maps and maybe a proper story mode this game could have been much better.


    Binary Domain

    I would actually love to see a sequel plus a remaster, endings sort of hinted at a sequel

    and the game itself was really fun maybe sadly a fun bugs and repetitiveness kept it back a bit, but personally I still really enjoyed the game.


    Alice Madness Returns

    I really enjoyed the game and I am a fan of american mcgee and the art style in his games.

    Honestly I did not really have any complaints other than maybe wanting a bit more variation.

    Then some years after the release I saw some of the cut content.... It made me wanting more as I felt the cut content included levels set in London and underwater. It could have made the game perfect.


    Parasite Eve


    Digital Devil Saga 1 & 2

    What I would like: Remaster

    Both great games only thing I dislike in the 1st one was the odd level

    being a tad too long without anything much in it 2nd same except for the odd

    story element which I did not like


    Gameplay was great interesting combat system with a good leveling up with various

    abilites great character design i could go on and on


    It is something different compared to a lot of the other shin megami tensei

    games where it seemed to have a very high production value good voice acting

    the voice acting was especially needed to express the theme of the story

    you know to have more impact


    The games already look great but imagine some kind of double pack

    in 1080p with tropheys etc.... I would be down for that


    you can get it for ps3 on psn but no extras please note



    Red Steel

    this was my first wii game and also one of my favorites too


    why isnt this style of game is done more often

    asian gangsters, sword fights guns blazing

    there are so many great films with awesome scenes and with a deep story

    so why on earth has it never really been done much on videogames


    i wish that red steel would get the combat from red steel 2

    because it was really improved in the sequel but everything else was boring graphics, the story and characters who cares

    where as in red steel 1 despite it being simple i still cared about the characters more


    Deadly Premonition

    What I would like: Remaster / Remake

    I know this got a directors cut edition for the ps3

    but honestly it was a bit lacking and I would love to see a good proper remaster and for ps4

    i would like to see an improved map in the game rather than an app on a phone!

    a quick weapon select menu rather than just pressing down multiple times

    better ground textures well would like better everything but especially the ground and more polish

    this game would then be legendary as it got everything else right!


    Shadow hearts Covenant 

    What I would like: Remaster (Covenant), Remake (Shadow hearts 1), Prequel & Sequel

    Well I think number 1 was kinda obivous

    It was an incredibile looking game for ps2 yes the ps2 the graphics were amazing

    Imagine a wee bit of polish and adapting to 1080p properly and trophy

    support etc... it would be epic


    honestly i dont know why at least this is discussed maybe difficult for a shadow

    hearts 1 remake or prequel but this


    it would be a no brainer because of the lack of games of this kind

    and also that nowdays internet is different

    compared to before when shadow hearts came out

    it did not get enough publicity and a lot of its cult following came years

    after release so that is simply why it takes the number 1 spot

  8. Well what do I have to say about Mario Kart 8 it's almost perfect


    Biggest flaw is the battle mode is lame its just using the normal courses (which okay maybe is nice option to have)

    but as the only options and not to have the courses at all like the ones in mario kart 64 (which i still play from time to time even now) is sad

    i would've loved to see updated graphic ones of the mario kart 64 battle courses or any battle courses similiar to the previous games


    maybe they'll have it in dlc or updates i hope so but sad that they didnt have it for release which in some ways i think is lazy

    because to have battle mode online would be much better with proper battle courses


    next are more minor things


    like still same amount of courses its not im complaining but why? couldn't they have more courses this time?

    or why not more classic courses because some of them with updated graphics would be amazing

    since certain classic courses from mk wii you cant play online anymore

    again maybe dlc but sad not to have more courses


    courses are cool the new main ones are very cool i think they show off


    but i'm kinda dissapointed with the classic courses

    like in other mario kart games they more memorable or more lively

    some just feel a bit generic/plain and boring although there was a few that looked amazing


    graphics are amazing best looking mario game ever best looking wiiu game i'm very impressed with it

    its sad nintendo didnt start with 3d world or kart 8 because it couldve made things different for wiiu

    nintendo's recent games have shown what the wiiu can do


    Although I do wish that there was more customization

    Like it would've been cool to something like the mii editor but a special one in mario kart 8 so anyone could create more characters

    Because one of my favourite kart games Modnation Racers there was no limits i was able to make any character batman, teen titans, firefly characters like anything!



    My Score: 8.5/10


    I would put up this score for sure if they fix some of the things i've mentioned and no captain toad :(






    Just doing a follow up to my earlier review which I posted here now I focus more online and a few other things


    Online is good but could be better with a bit more



    I like the option to go into a race and you can play as many as you want until you want to quit after a race

    but I didn't like there was no quick option to do a quick grand prix where your locked in for 4 courses

    it would've been cool because it would show the most consistent player in 4 races rather than 1 separate race each time

    because I'm very good I usually get 3rd sometimes 2nd and 1st very rare times 5th and only once higher than 5th

    there's nothing to show for it other than your points tally which is okay but like I said could be better

    menu options should then be for example 1st option free to play 2nd quick grand prix 3rd tourament 4th battle mode etc...



    Although not online specific, battle mode still sucks come on nintendo

    to have battle mode and online would've been awesome IF you had battle arenas rather than the normal courses....



    Online Stats there's really no good interesting stats unless if I'm missing it would've been good for example

    how many times you finished each position wished for more detailed stats about race results

    there some stats in the menu via - but kinda sucks and doesn't represent how good you are


    4- A good side is that it is stable I played the sports club before and remember how I encountered many issues in that game

    although it has improve but still not great (went off topic) but anyways here in MK8 its grand never had issues


    5- one thing i can kinda pick on is that it can take a while to get into a race, it was quicker in mk7

    there hasnt been a time yet where i'm able to jump in and alot i have to wait sometimes a full race but good thing is after there is no long waiting or anything but it can take a small time to get into next race when its waiting more players or for people to decide


    6- Even though I'm happy about the dlc as it does add new characters & courses even though I did felt slightly that they could've done more before

    but I also feel that they can do much more like why stop at link or animal crossing (once it releases in may 2015)

    I like mario tanooki but wished he was already in the game, also where's the cat version of everyone ?

    why not captain toad... he's in a new recent nintendo game but they didnt give me a slot in mario kart 8 kinda weird because I would've released as an unlock or free dlc if you have bought captain toad wouldn't that have been a good idea

    I understand why they wouldn't do bayonetta but theres many more possibilites like sonic pokemon fire emblem

    characters from smash bros or other franchises as guests to promote games its just seems such a good idea which nintendo didnt do or even think of

    aiimbo support is cool but wished it gave you those characters rather than dress up


    7- One other thing that I noticed was not in MK8 but was in another earlier mk game apparently was  you can't make a custom emblem which is disappointing because it would've been cool to have the DU logo I understand why it's not in it probably because people abused it in the last game but still...


    My Review Score For Online is 7.5/10


    It works but I felt it could've been better

    Like I don't mean to be critical but I felt that these things just stop MK8 from being forever legendary

  9. Introduction

    Horizon Zero Dawn is an action role-playing game developed by Guerrilla Games and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment. It was released for the PlayStation 4 in early 2017. Made by Guerrilla Games who are known for the Killzone games and they try something really different here, but one thing that remains is the quality of their work.



    The graphics are amazing, really good. everything from the scenery, characters and the machines. I'm blown away by them many times throughout the game. Def. close to being (if not) the best on PS4.

    Everything is high detail. Nice range of characters and scenery which does and shows different things but all done really well.



    I really enjoyed the gameplay the combat it is excellent with different ways to approach. With various weapons many which are different to each other unique and fun. Also with the possibility to stealth or try to override machines is great also. Combining the great graphics and sound this game is for sure a treat to play. There is plenty of exloring to do in the vast world of Horizon Zero Dawn.
    One minor issue I had is sometimes it is hard to see what you can climb up on (not clearly visible)

    Which lead me wandering around and around getting a bit frustrated.



    Story is excellent although it did take me a bit to get into. Also I felt while the many side quests are great but I felt that some of the cutscenes during the side quests were not with the same care as other cut scenes. That would not be too bad but then adding that some scenes lasted why too long and it ended up feeling like a bit of mumbo jumbo and ended up slightly distracting from the main story.

    But please note that there are multiple side quests that have great side stories. Overall great but there parts it could have done without or just trimmed down a bit.


    Play Time/Replayability

    Fantastic game length I spent many many hours playing this game (50+).

    This is a game where you do not need a guide to 100% it which I really welcome and I always felt motivated to try and complete everything. Also the trophies are good as they are not awkward to get but simply need to complete the game. I believe there is a fantastic amount of play time value. Although it is not a game I would probably replay any time soon but do not let that distract from how great this game is.


    Final Recommendation

    If you can not tell by now i really enjoyed this game. Is it perfect? No but it is a pretty damn good game and a must play for the ps4.


    My Score for Horizon Zero Dawn is a 9/10

    After a slightly shaky start, this game really excels in many areas. It brings a new and unique experience with amazing visuals and gameplay with a pretty good story to back it up.

    If you have a ps4 seriously go buy it if you have not already ;)

  10. When this game was announced I got excited because I thought finally an online game for the wiiu

    But the first thing that kind of bothered me was the price was 9.99 $ but also 9.99 euro....

    So people in europe will have to pay 2 euros more per sport....

    So to consider that it'll take 50 to get them all (once they're out ofcourse) right now there's only bowling and tennis


    Anyways it came out recently so I downloaded it and decided to give it a try since there's a 24hr free try pass for first time users so I started the game


    By the way the 24hr countdown of your trail starts as soon as you enter the main menu so beware plus its 24hrs from when you start not 24 hr access so your gonna try it out make sure you do it for a free day


    So onto the games we have tennis and bowling which were probably my two favourites from the original wii sports


    I enjoyed both of them but that I was a bit disappointed about certain things


    Okay the graphics are HD and yes better than original but not by much, although I wasn't like expecting it to be


    Gameplay In tennis pretty much the same basics but except with every sport its now motionplus controls


    It does feel different at first but once you get adjusted to the motionplus you'll be doing the same shots like in the original


    Although one nice addition is the smash because you have to do a smash like movement or else you'll hit the net and that sort of goes


    for overall too you can't flick the controller like in the original here you have to do a bit more realistic movements


    Really enjoy playing tennis online had lots of fun but sadly there's connection issues at times random games seem to have 1 red bar signal and it lags so bad.... like really bad


    Cheating yes it exists.... 1 didnt like it when i was 4-1 up then my opponent didnt serve and forfeit the match and then i only gained 10 points and he only lost 10 points but if i won it it wouldve bee at least 60 so.....


    also played against a guy called nico twice he got disconnected both times which pissed me off because i was winning 5-1 playing my best wiiu sports tennis, i was even amazed at myself hitting them perfect but anyways i noticed something if you turn it off you dont loose points at all.....


    against a star 5 player who was really good but I'm just epic


    one other niggle is liked i said before motionplus its a requirement so if want to play multiplayer offline mmmm....


    so what would mean 4 player then you need 4 motionplus would've been nice if it allowed 4 normal controls even if its limited to offline play


    But overall I had fun the comment system is awesome miiverse too and liked i said about improvements before and the online play so I think this is one sport which will be a must have but just a bit sad about the connection problems kinda a let down


    In bowling there's no real difference just minors changes with getting used to the motionplus controls but then again afterwards you'll make the strikes or spares look easy like in wii sports


    One minus is that ofcourse there's no wii fit test or anything yet which was one of my favourite things in wii sports


    I'll probably buy the tennis fulltime pass but not sure about the others unless they drop in price


    My Score : 6.5 / 10


    + Having Wii Sports with some new improvements

    + Online Gaming

    - Online connection problems & lack of online game modes stuff like mini knock touraments wouldve been nice

    - Motionplus required

    - Price & Lack of new stuff other than online


    Its not like its a bad game, its a good game I enjoyed the tennis and bowling was fun too

    But the price and the issues the game / s has me sort of 50 / 50

    I probably end up getting the tennis but I may pass on the bowling since I haven't completed one game

    online with it during the 24hr free 1st try pass


    To be honest I think it should be all free for one to reward the people who bought a wiiu two to attract newcomers that they could download a free game

    but no.... you must pay 10 per sport when you can play the original wii game that isnt too different

  11. An amazing game!

    Been looking forward to this one for a while, was disappointed when microsoft got the time exclusive deal
    because I didnt have an xbox one but luckily they brought it out for the xbox 360 aswell
    I have to say quality was still great for xbox 360 and you get to enjoy the experience
    So its great for people who have a x360 and just not quite ready to commit
    or for people who have a x360 and a ps4 but just not willing to wait until the end of next year
    honestly i feel that its pointless for ps4 because by then the price will be next to nothing

    I'm relieved because we've all seen ports or the last gen versions of other games but poor or buggy
    This version for xbox 360 is good quality and not buggy at all
    only two very minor glitches in textures but nothing that disrupts the experience

    I'm glad to say the quality is good much like the first tomb raider game
    Overall it's more of the same with a few tweaks its hard to get into it because its very similiar to the predessor
    Story I think is fantastic, characters are good

    Combat I like it's different because if you focus on being too direct you could die easily
    instead look whats around you or around your enemies and use whatever you see to your advantage
    although bows seem to be more powerful than bullets
    when it takes 3 shoots of a gun when an arrow is instant kill
    Some animals seem to take many more hits than humans bears wolfs 20+ bullets / arrows

    I like Survival instint and finding maps because you can find pretty much everything within the game without a guide

    puzzles are great and rewarding experience

    Things I could criticize on would really be nitpicking because its minor things
    and no game is perfect but only can be perfect for what the game is and wants to be

    like story maybe goes at too fast of a pace and doesnt build up certain things
    for more impact

    combat is not the absolute best

    sidequests are great but gets repeative and a lot you cant do till later when you get certain gear
    then backtrack via fast travel

    quite a few cheap deaths

    Which in this game it is

    My Score: 10/10

    Amazing game, one that everyone should play for sure.
    I'm really glad that the xbox 360 is a good solid version for anyone without a xbox one

  12. I've already played the demo before playing this game


    My initial impressions were that it was better than Heavy Rain

    Its like more active in the gameplay


    Plus the way you have to control switching from Jodie to Adien and back

    There just seems to be more that you can interact with and you have to think how to progress through at times maybe sadly not enough

    (like in advanced experiments dlc because that was a great level)


    Because in Heavy Rain most of the time it was actions then the consequence of those that change the story

    In Beyond a bit different that how you got through and


    There's a bit more exploring to do in Beyond much more on a different level to Heavy Rain


    Menu is nice changes depending on which Chapter your on (You'll see Jodie's face at different ages in very high detail)


    I haven't encountered any major problems while playing Beyond which is great

    As when I played Heavy Rain there was a bug that it would wipe out the save i lost 4 hours of progress back then and it took them a while to fix

    But luckily in Beyond there are no such issues the only real issue I encountered was in a level (submarine) where a scene meant to happen but didnt

    i was walking around for ages until it happened and I walk over that specific spot many times


    Anyways ofcourse maybe the biggest thing in this game is that actress Ellen Page and actor Willan Dafoe are in the game

    Where you control Jodie for the whole game


    Graphics are amazinly beautiful


    One complaint is that In beyond there's only a white circle dot when you can interact with something (using the right analog stick)

    When in Heavy Rain its hightlighted by a square box because sometimes in Beyond its hard to see when it blends in the background

    But when you need to press other buttons during a sequence theyre highlighted but they dont when its a tiny white circle


    Had a lot of fun in an early level called the party where they'd made funny of Jodie for the gift she gave at a birthday party

    They locked her up, you can decide to leave or take revenge

    So I decided to take revenge like you can do anything you want


    Its changes back and fourth in the story from child to teenager to young woman to child vise versa a bit all other the place

    but I liked how it was because you understood scenes when you get along through the story


    My Review Score : 8.5+/10


    Even though its not really a proper game more like an interactive mini series

    But story soundtrack actors are all perfect in this game and overall they improved things from Heavy Rain


    + Ellen Page's best performance, to be honest I don't think this game would work without her and her performance throughout the game

    + You get to control Ellen Page in a bra and panties for a bit (ofcourse this is a plus)


    - Small white circle hard to see, One awkard time to progress through where a scene didnt happen when it shouldve

    - I liked how'd the story was layed out but there were a few times when i was confused when things weren't explained

    - Never really explained what the monsters were and throughout

  13. A few rules

    - Does not have to be the best kdramas it has to be kdramas that would make the best games.

    (so kdramas that i mention may have flaws)

    - I try to make a unique list with different game play ideas when possible as i think most kdramas could make great visual novels.

    - I have to have watched the kdrama so if i have not at least seen a few eps then the drama will not be listed here.

    - i may update the list in the future maybe i'll add Honorable mentions etc...


    - Forbidden Love

    You have your powers your healing sword fights etc... mythology of nine tail fox and possibilities to put choices in which would affect the outcome.


    - About Time

    Even though the drama ended up being average but i felt like it wasted the great concept it had with life clocks and being able to see how much time everyone has left that would work wonders in a game where you can make decisions that would affect people's lives.


    - Signal

    I have to say even though I think that Signal is a bit overrated but I do think that it would make an excellent video game with using the walkie talkie and the past and present scenarios and having to solve cases in both timelines could be very interesting.


    - City Hunter

    Good be a great game similar to hitman but with less killing but with the same kind of stealth and a bit more fighting. 


    - While You Were Sleeping

    Would go perfect with any quantum dream style games. Having dreams of bad events in the future then doing what you can to stop them. you have a prosecutor, news reporter and a cop so def. different game play style possibilities to mix in.


    - Fight My Way

    Imagine a mma fighting game but with a very good story, (well take out the whole mother mystery crap.) but that could be a great game and get people playing a mma game who probably would not normally.


    - Circle

    I always think about games like Deus ex, the style of those worlds decision making choices

    chance for stealth hacking, cop and more.


    - The K2

    It would make a great action stealth game, the action was top notch in this drama and a lot in. so it makes since, i sort of imagine a james bond type game but with a bit more hand to hand combat.


    - Healer

    I think gameplay from mirror's edge would fit perfectly with Healer then with fighting kinda like batman arkham games but with much less gadgets 


    - Drama world

    It would have been epic if it was a visual novel and you get to customise your character, so that you would be the protagonist. It would be every kdramas fan dream and it would fix the biggest problem of dramaworld that it could not represent everyone.


    Honorable Mentions:

    The Bride of Habaek

    Killer K 

    Come And Hug Me

  14. Intro

    "Kim Soo-hyun is a mother whose young daughter Han Saet-byul gets kidnapped and murdered. Discovering a miraculous ability to go back in time exactly two weeks before the event, Soo-hyun is determined to expose the kidnapping plot and save her daughter before she dies all over again. Helping her is Ki Dong-chan, a former cop turned private investigator out to prove the innocence of his mentally challenged brother, who is falsely accused of murdering Dong-chan's ex-girlfriend. As Soo-hyun and Dong-chan race against the clock in the allotted 14 days, new light is shed on the crimes, and they uncover secrets far more treacherous than Soo-hyun could have ever imagined."



    I have to say the 2nd ep was probably the best and one of the most heaviest episodes that I ever have seen

    It was really intense


    It was really good because it was convicing from all the cast

    and it was very important for this kind of drama


    The suspense was fantastic soundtrack brilliant fits very well in the different scenes


    I do say first ep was a bit slow/boring but it sort like had to introduce the main characters

    and to show how they are with each other

    Plus maybe the subplots were a bit confusing at the start as it didn't really explain who's who and why someone

    was here or there etc...


    Although after the second ep in the 3rd it was a bit slower which was sad

    because the pace espically when it got really intense and was what made the series fantastic


    Like after the 2nd ep every other ep pretty much felt like a 40 min build up to 10 mins of awesomeness


    i think they'd streched it out too much


    it would've been better as a mini series like 5 eps etc....


    and the ending was... ugh........ even with it sort of dying off it had the chance to redeem itself

    but sadly it did not, its still a decent series but not an amazing one

    at the very least watch the first few eps especially the 2nd


    My Score: 7/10

  15. This is the worst K-Drama that I have seen to date

    Before I go on I never like watch dramas that I know they're terribile
    I don't look into reviews for kdramas
    I only go to see what's recommended
    Basically came across this drama because of Yoon Eun Hye
    Same person from coffee prince or lie to me

    And... she's the only good thing in this drama her acting and the character that she plays

    Every other character is just boring

    day dream sequences were too many, too long and boring
    and there was also starts of scenes of her walking
    saying that i felt that every scene was too long for what it was

    like I feel it tries to be funny but it just fails to do so

    Okay so I began watching this drama because of course Yoon Eun-Hye
    And I have to say she was definitely the best thing in this drama
    I'm not saying this is a bad, its a good drama but it's ain't a fantastic one...

    I have quit when I was in the 4th ep

    It was a bit boring and most of the characters were annoying except for Yoon Eun-Hye

    Part of me wanted to continue but it was too tuff to do so

    My Score: 4/10

    Worth it to see for Yoon Eun-Hye performance but nothing else.

  16. WTF seriously wtf !

    there was already big issues within four seconds yes a matter of seconds

    Raven is a fantastic DARK character guess what is playing within a teddy pony and unicorn

    while watching tv of them at the same time

    your thinking no i've made a mistake and i meant to have said starface

    nope your wrong i repeat raven playing with teddy unicorn & pony

    ............................. facepalm seriously wtf i was actually sad in a matter of seconds which for me never ever happened before

    and i rarly felt sad watching a series or movie but this show is the closet thing to making me cry!

    moving on first of all lets talk about the graphics of the show as you most likely know its different from the old series

    like in the short previews for me i would've prefered for it to stay with the old graphics but the new ones

    aren't awful or anything that would've completely stopped me from watching

    Raven looks the best robin looks almost the same not extremely starfire aswell decent

    one minor issues i felt beast boy and cyborg looked very childish looking although liked i said its not a deal breaker

    opening tune... not really good but its only a matter of seconds rather than a minute so it goes away quickly compared to other series

    for me the aim of the show its not a bad a thing (dealing with situations that happen outside of saving the world) but IF

    they had continue on certain things were the old series left off

    BUT GUESS WHAT minor spoiler ahead

    they dont in any form since one of the early parts of ep 2 or 3 no one knew who raven's father was and raven had to explain to them

    this is one of a couple examples where it cleary shows that its disregarding everything that happened in big awesome eps of the old series

    lets read a line from the wiki page "The show is a follow-up"

    ............... no comment it isn't a follow up it acts like all the big events that happened in the old series never happened in the new series

    its a big slap in the face to all the fans

    why are cn doing this do they hate us ? probably

    also the old series is what 8 years old.... another mistake on why they made this new show tt go the way it is

    i was only early in my teen years when i first watch very first ep of the teen titans but ofcourse now im older

    but im saying that the fans huge audience of the old series wont be interested in this new one and those that did will quickly loose interest

    the best and only real good thing is series is that the main cast reprising their respective roles.

    i think thats what even maybe made it a bit addictive at the start even though i know its terribile

    they all do good decent jobs in the voice acting

    but sadly the other jobs are................. <---- not going to say anything about that

    other minor good thing was they way theyre doing the eps 2 stories in one ep

    i would've liked this alot if the eps werent as bad

    people a few parents were complaining about the old teen titans saying that the 3 episode arch of raven

    was too dark and scary...

    okay maybe they have a point fact is its on cartoon network but isnt the new series worse/ bigger problems ?

    minor spoilers ahead

    - cyborg gets his arm ripped off

    - beast boy get his teeth bashed in

    okay in the old series cyborg did get his leg ripped off but still....

    also in a later ep in teen titans go minor spoiler cyborg is headless........

    oh and probably the biggest one are the ready ?

    Robin in the laundry episode part is fully naked

    yes you see that right yes i say again fully NUDE

    okay not completely you cant see his thing but other thing which i thought was wrong

    is girls fans of teen titans taking of Robin naked but wait also

    the phones were aimed at his..... thing.....

    is this a kidz show ? liked i said for me thats worst and parents should complain more about that becuase thats just wrong

    okay im gonna rap this up now

    When i first heard about the show i was so excited

    i was smiling heck even jumping as one of my favourite shows when i was younger making a return


    it only took a matter of seconds for cn to give me a big slap on my face

    its a big disgrace to show a beloved show / franchise

    and i wish someday teen titans will make a return either on anime or a videogame

    so the score out of ten i give 3/10

    and its only 3 because of the main cast reprising their respective roles.

    without i probably would maybe even only give one out of 10

    although fans that had so much hope may get a bit addicted to the show despite well i was gonna say its flaws

    but shorter would be almost everything

    it doesnt compare to the old series which i would give a 9/10 and a must watch approval

    but this new teen titans go SUCKS

    note you've been warned

    SCORE: 3 / 10

    "A BIG Slap in the face from cartoon network"

    And I thought them cancelling scooby doo mystery incoporated was as bad they can do... well i guess im wrong now....

  17. Introduction

    Not really sure what to say this game kinda left me speechless.

    This game is certainly made by Suda 51. And I think this game tops any of their madness before! 



    Graphics are great nice anime look, good effects in the gameplay and cut scenes as well looks professional as if it was an actual anime



    I really liked the different game play elements at certain points of the game like usually during boss fights. "Most stages of the game involve Ranko running to the right of the stage, being chased. On the level's path are various enemies that can be defeated, which charges up Ranko's ammo in her sniper-violin, which can be used to shoot her pursuer if they get too close." There are different paths to take which is nice but other than affecting the difficulty it does not really do much else.



    Story started off really well it was about a girl named Ranko. Secretly she is an assassin who plans on killing her evil father to avenge her mother's death. Then she was being chased by a group and having to do a different job then it all kicked off from there. Like it really started promising 

    but then the story got really bizzare confusing and weird it is by suda51 afterall so you can always expect it to be a bit bizzare but this... this reaches a whole new level by miles) then it suddenly went on to the final boss, Far too short of a game and I wished the story continued how it started without that... not even sure what to call it. madness!

    Play Time/Replayability
    1hr and there isnt much replay value with previously mentioned alternative paths do nothing.

    Only real replay value is to try and get the trophies but even then aparently it would only take 5 hours and it was not worth it for me to try, especially with how the game ended.


    Final Recommendation

    At the start it showed promise but then.... it went.... a-wall


    My Score: 4/10

    Game was fun until it left your heading scratching....

  18. Introduction
    Natural Doctrine is a 2014 tactical role-playing game by Kadokawa Games for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.

    Life lesson folks sometimes it may be best to check reviews before jumping right into a game even though sometimes I got lucky with Shadow Hearts which is an amazing game, but then there are other times like Trappi which was shit and you should know where I'm heading with this one....

    Graphics are terrible, now I'm not one who tends to focus on graphics
    but I do believe in standards per console, 
    this... looks below par ps2 graphics they probably should have gone more anime 
    rather than more realisitic, even if this was a launch title it would still be bad but it is a 2014 game.

    Sound nothing to complain about and nothing to praise about.

    Game play was interesting but flawed and with the rest of the game is not great or worse then the game play does not really matter as it is certainly not amazing. It tried taking gameplay elements from likes of xcom and fire emblem series. I would much rather play any of those games rather than this. It is an alright strategy rpg game which of course you need to have good strategy to win but I just do not care.

    Story & characters are not interesting at all. In rpg games story it is kinda a must.

    Here it is almost non existent as the game seemed to be more focusing on getting you to the game play. Then its with characters that I feel like I don't really know them...


    The setting is within a universe where humans fight other races with magic and swords. Within a world of chaos, humans built the fortress city Feste as their home, and fought against other species. The protagonist, Geoff, is a guard soldier set out to clear out goblin dens to grant access to resources important for humankind.


    That sounds actually kinda interesting but it never gets into it and a wasted chance as it never build from it as it is just a short excuse for each battle and never goes in deep of what could have actually been a good story.

    Play Time/Replayability
    Does this really matter, do you want to suffer? I tried 2 hours but I just did not overly enjoy my time.

    Final Recommendation

    Battle system is interesting but not great and that alone is not enough.

    My Score for Natural Doctrine is a 3/10 
    there's much better strategy rpg games than this.

  19. When I was looking for a kdrama to watch,

    I saw signal on mydramalist which had a 9.2 rating score highest ranked kdrama

    and also it was is either a 9 or 10 on most other places so

    I had to watch this kdrama, so how was it?

    well it was good but not quite carling.


    The concept was fantastic really clever in my opinion the

    communcation between the past and present worked very well


    The first ep almost felt a movie it was very entertaining

    and most cases are like an ep and a half which works great

    when its a good case but then in others it felt dragged out and very repitive


    ep 4 was a masterpiece great emotional ep which built up lee jang really well


    It was well acted and also perfect picked cast, everyone suited their roles

    well and they all gave top class performances all round

    everyone showed good emotion


    Park Hae Young is one dimensional character other than him suffering from

    the loss of his brother what else is there who is Park Hae Young?

    There was a girl who was helping him deciding on which university to go to,

    she appeared in like 3 scenes then never to be seen again....


    I am not one who has to have romance in series etc... but I really feel that this k-drama needed it especially with cha because she just seems to be crazy ott over her crush


    It could have been a sad tragic story but waiting for that moment it never came


    Later eps lagged a bit one ep almost felt like nothing happened but luckily by then

    theres only 4 eps left


    This could have been the best kdrama ever but a couple of things really holds it


    The ending

    and the writer

    when I spend 16 hours watching something I want to have an ending

    Also even though a season 2 is possible


    In my opinion wait to least when season 2 is confirmed if not then only watch this when you have nothing to watch



  20. For what it is and how well it does it, It's a really good game


    This game & Mario games in general are games that you can play in any mood

    Always relaxing and enjoyable


    Ofcourse if you want an action game (or with a bit more) then you won't overly enjoy this


    This game is a more slow pace easy going game


    Captain Toad is so adorable,


    The graphics are great and its what to be expected,

    Soundtrack is great too and sets the mood for playing

    Has a good amount of unique levels too including bonus ones if you have a Super Mario 3D World save

    Also replay value with time trials and the Toad amiibo plus completing the secret objectives and getting all the stars

    So overall its a decent package


    The only real issue that I have is the camera view

    It didn't bother me when playing through the first time because I was taking my time completing the levels

    BUT for the speed runs it starts to become annoying where in a lot (but not all) courses require to do perfect movement straight to the star as you only have maybe 2 to 3 seconds tops to spare

    so at times it can be tuff to do some of those courses and getting the best time


    But overall its a great game that always have that mario style charm


    My Score: 9/10


    While I'm talking about sorry to go slightly off topic @Nintendo where is the captain toad amiibo mario kart 8 character and smash bros character? come on nintendo make them! :P:)

  21. before i begin my review i want to ask

    like Who is this guy? [point at cover]



    wait a minute let me check on my phone here....

    on wikipedia here... ah got it jack joyce

    okay then on with the review


    so it was meant to be the big one for the xbox one but it pissed me off

    its a real shame because for me the game sounded really promising


    it was a interesting concept a game + a tv show

    with decisions affecting both (or at least it meant to...)

    and it was from the creators of alan wake

    which is among my elite favourites of games


    so obliviously i was very exited...

    But this game sadly has some major flaws


    Biggest issue with the game is that even though it has an interesting universe

    BUT mostly with weak characters

    and none of them are developed properly throughout the game

    Like again... ah shit forgot his name [point at cover] eh does not matter

    never played such a forgettable main protagonist before...


    TV Show isnt bad its quite decent and i wished i couldve spent more time with them

    but the main character of the game or any other important character

    in the game barely features in the tv show

    its like almost 2 separate things that rarely connect with each other


    What worse is that there are no conclusions or endings

    to any of the characters in both and overall game and the tv show

    breaks the immersion to each other with what i have mentioned


    it would have been nice to have more background story on Joyce

    yes i remembered his name a prologue episode could have been great

    I did not care much for Joyce and honestly I cared little about the other characters too

    some of the tv characters were possibly interesting but not enough time with them

    to make me fully care.


    enough negatives lets go over some of the positives


    Its a decent 3rd person shooter with a twist with the time abilities

    sometimes a mixed bag but overall i did enjoy the game play


    - Pretty game despite it being only 720p

    It is a technical spectacle The time based abilities are cool

    but after the tutorials for each ability

    although i ended up just using the same power over and over again

    freezing / slowing down the enemies then shoot them


    that part of the gameplay kinda feels like

    a syfy edition of alan wake you know with the torch to slow down enemies

    but that is the only part that they resemble


    As things started to get interesting when i was really getting into

    the game and enjoying it but then it bothered me...


    choices are a great concept but sadly they never really grew into anything

    does not affect the game or the ending in any real way

    even though you can change the tv show part a bit a slight bit

    but you can not change joyce's journey throughout the game in any meaningful way

    its strange...


    then sequel baiting and a possible romance from out of nowhere


    last thing f*** the final boss


    words cannot explain probably one of the worst boss fights that i've ever faced

    especially when i was doing well and then it crashed twice

    then i had to try multiple times dying from frustration


    Overall great concept great universe and reasonably good game play it was enjoyable

    Graphics are absolutely incredible, the physics were simply amazing

    technical wise its outstanding but other than that its a bit of a let down

    and leaves me wanting to play alan wake more

    do not mean to say alan wake multiple times

    but this feels like a incomplete game and a tv show that got cancelled mid season

    it simply left me wanting more.



  22. I think the k2 is a fantastic kdrama very under rated

    Although for me it did not have the greatest of starts

    especially the first 2 episodes

    It was like the drama was trying to be cool

    with some beautiful scenery, really cool fights scenes and a sexy scene etc...

    but without providing any emotional context initially which made it all meaningless

    it didnt grab me at and it was a bit boring to be honest


    Im glad that I did not drop it because I was pretty close to doing so

    After when I learnt and understood Kim Je-ha & Go An-na character their motivation

    and the story behind them

    the drama then suddenly became more enjoyable because most scenes fights or situations

    then meant something to me because I felt for them


    even though episode 3 was not great but it showed promise then from episode 4

    i started to enjoy the drama and then I really got into it.


    So lets go over some of things that I really liked

    The acting is probably the best thing in the drama it was top notch

    everyone done a fantastic job

    Soundtrack was very solid and I really liked the instrumentals

    it added an extra emph to each situation very well

    I really liked in the drama that there were two revenges stories going on

    it was intersting once I knew what was what liked mentioned before.


    go anna appreciated kim je ha more when she saw him suffering a nightmare

    while he was sleeping in one of the episodes it made her feel like shes not the only one


    Now some minor issues that the drama had maybe was

    1st go anna's sudden personality change

    from being scared, seemingly uncapable of anything and a shut in

    to a very capable chatty and clever woman

    they didnt build up to Kim Je-ha & Go An-na relationship that much

    even though their chemistry was really

    good, their scenes were cute and enjoyable and they looked like a couple.

    in my opinion it maybe needed more time but then also they were both suffering

    and found comfort together so it is understanable


    And they didnt show enough of Jang Se-joon's humanity like they did with Choi Yoo-jin

    maybe there Jang Se-joon only

    im not saying i wished that there were loads of scenes

    but one here and there


    it then brings


    The drama had a really strong finish it kept up the quality of the fight scenes

    it had really high stakes, intense


    So my score for the k2 is a 9/10


    Now if you excuse me Im going to subway and get something to eat


    Actually I am back because I want to talk about so spoilers

    so if you want to stop here then do that right now

    your still watching? okay then


    anna did not need to go to 9

    then anna's father dying and her mothers name never cleared

    in part i wouldve understood if her father liked saved her

    life by taking a bullet or something else like that

    but he did not have to die, it was complete suicide

  23. Healer K-Drama

    story was simply epic, characters were good with great chemistry.

    some pretty awesome fight scenes here and there

    and a very nice memorable soundtrack aswell

    pacing was pretty good but at times i felt they could only focus on one thing

    at a time and didnt really blend things in here and there.

    like past but only the past romance then only the romance

    mission then only mission etc....

    Only other thing is even though it was not really bad

    the end game was kinda lackluster,

    I felt maybe they maybe have played it too safe and it didnt end as high

    as the drama felt throughout the series

    Which was disappointing because this drama was near perfect

    of being Legendary but regardless of a few minor things it still is legendary.


    My Score: 10/10


    I almost gave it a 9 or 9.5 because of the two minor issues I said

    but its still for 100% sure its legendary although not the best legendary

    everything else was fantastic

  24. Goblin probably had one of the best starts to a kdrama

    the 1st ep felt like a movie and the prodution values of it also felt like one

    whih helps getting hooked onto the main pragtagonist Kim Shin aka Goblin


    Best part of this drama is definitly the haraters

    espeially the bromance between the goblin and the grim reaper

    it was almost like a comedy act they were fantastic together

    best bromane in a kdrama hands down

    in some ways the bromane atually out does the romane

    Personally i never felt or saw Kim Shin & Ji Eun Tak as a ouple

    until very late on whih i do have to give redit to the drama for

    to hange my mind on them.


    all of the characters were also very solid aswell

    they managed to build great connections with eahover

    and i cared about all of them


    One weird thing about this drama is that despite really enjoying each ep

    there were quite a few times when i look back and i thought

    what actually happened sometimes not much

    its like two steps forward then two steps bak on oassions


    outside of the first ep whih was exiting thrilling movie like but then

    every other ep was a bit slow at times

    but yet nearly all eps were entertaining i was never bored so why is that?


    again the bromane and the haraters beause it was usually that i referene

    rather than the story


    i had maybe slight mixed feelings towards the end due

    to that the bromane had to die down a bit due to the plot

    but then plot piked up and finished really strong

    with not typial kdrama ending but a really good one

    something that is different but still good in my opinion


    There are more positive things than negative


    i havent even mentioned the senery and the soundtrak yet

    simply breathtaking

    with the senery there were different loations inluding Quebec City, Canada

    for me that adds something extra speial espeially when it was done well


    then the soundtrak was great too and some of the traks

    are very rememorabile espially the tune that played when they went through the tunnel


    well thats pretty muh everything that i had to say about Goblin

    so with that i will tell you that my sore for goblin is a 9/10


    so lose to being among my top favourites but doesnt quite make it

    although saying that it definitily has the best bromance


  25. Introduction

    Fairy Fencer F is a 2013 fantasy role-playing game under Compile Heart's Galapagos RPG brand for the PlayStation 3.


    Actually kinda surprised about this game it's very good.

    It's an easy game to get into, Story for the most part is good, gameplay and length is also good

    overall a very solid game, and one that you should probably try out

    It's not like other compile heart or NIS games where the voice is ott with a weird and confusing story

    (but ofcourse there's always those moments)

    It's a game that pretty much kept my attention from start to finish
