This week we review Ori and the Will of the Wisps and Doom: Eternal, both sequels to critically acclaimed videogames. Moon Studios are back with the second chapter of the Ori series. Now with added combat mechanics and promising a world more extensive than it's predecessor. Ori and the Will of the Wisps guarantee more action-packed Metroidvania styled gaming with sprawling levels, new abilities and bosses. With the success of the first game, can Moon studios deliver a worthy if not improved upon sequel? And, in our main segment, a game we have been eagerly anticipating since 2016. Doom: Eternal finally arrives and has been winning perfect scores with other publications. Marty Stratton, one of the directors of Doom(2016) has taken a back seat this time around. With Hugo Martin now leading the project on his own, fans have been speculating a shift in the game's direction because of this, Does Doom: Eternal match the quality of the previous game? Or with rumoured production problems and delays spell the end of the doom slayer?

It's the Anniversary of one of the greatest videogames of the 16-bit Era. Chrono Trigger arrived on the Super Famicom (SNES) this very day exactly 25 years ago. From the "Dream Team" of Hironobu Sakaguchi, the creator of Final Fantasy, Yuji Horii of Enix's popular Dragon Quest series and Akira Toriyama, an acclaimed manga artist who most will know for Dragon Ball. Along with, Kazuhiko Aoki who produced the game, Masato Kato wrote most of the story, with music from Yasunori Mitsuda and Nobuo Uematsu. The game was a critical hit as well as an essential item for all lovers of JRPGS. It's an episode a quarter of a century in the making, so join us as we travel back in time to pay tribute to this masterpiece.
Parasite did the unthinkable and swept the Academy Awards bagging four Oscars. While we here all loved the film, we can't help but think if it deserved all those accolades, especially with strong contenders like Scorcese and Tarantino delivering some of their best work. Now that all the hype has died down, we reanalyze Bong Joon Ho's latest and ask the questions. Did it genuinely deserve the win or just the academy trying to stay relevant in light of falling ratings? The discussion will be a SPOILER filled analysis and review, so you've been warned if you're still intent on watching it. And if you haven't seen it, please do, it's a fantastic film.
