Chrono Trigger – Forgotten Childhood

Recently I’ve been craving an old-school Japanese role-playing game. I’m not completely sure why this crippling addiction has resurfaced or why my usual methadone of reminding myself that they’re all like 50 hours long has failed me, but here we are. I immediately turned to the final fantasy series, a sequence of games which held my […]

Shrek 2 – Forgotten Childhood

When thinking about what this week’s article should be about, Shrek 2 came to mind immediately. Mostly because I just watched it two weeks ago.

George’s Marvelous Medicine, the story of a perfectly normal boy who not quite inadvertently creates a magic potion and gives it unpleasant and cantankerous grandmother, is my favourite of them all. The only screen adaptation it has received was a five-part […]
