DVD Review: The Decline of Western Civilization - Complete Collection (1981, 1988, 1998)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Thursday, January 28, 2016 0 comments

The Decline of Western Civilization Collection is a collection containing all three parts of the music documentary film series, The Decline of Western Civilization. These films document the punk rock scene of the late-1970's and mid-1990's, it also covers the heavy metal and glam rock scene of the late-1980's. These films aren't your typical music documentaries, they don't just solely focus on the music itself, they also share focus on the fandom and takes a look at the music scene from all sides of the story. Will it be as expansive as it sounds? Or will it be a series that has poorly declined in quality over the years? (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

Blu-Ray Review: Christmas Evil (AKA: You Better Watch Out) (1980)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Wednesday, January 20, 2016 0 comments

You Better Watch Out (AKA Christmas Evil) is a Christmas themed black drama horror movie about a middle aged man named Harry, a man that is obsessed with wanting to become Santa Clause.  This movie opens up with a scene that takes place on Christmas Eve in the 1940's, where we see a young Harry with his mother and younger brother witnessing a Christmas miracle when they are visited by Santa Clause.  Shortly after that we see the kids are in bed talking about Christmas until Harry hears a noise downstairs and goes down to check it out.  Poor young Harry, what he saw is what no child should see and that's his mother getting her stocking stuffed with Santa's tongue...  Or to put it in an non-innuendo way, Harry walks down to see Santa performing oral sex on his mother.  All of this chimney sweeping sends Harry into shock, so he runs into the attic and smashes a snow globe and cuts himself with it (such an over reactor).  After that scene we cut to December of 1980 where we see a grown up Harry working at a toy factory (how ironic) and is looking forward to Christmas as he wants to become Santa Claus and keep the Christmas spirit alive, sadly his brother and co-workers don't share the same feelings, so Harry takes his Santa role too seriously and does something about it.  Whether they are on his naughty or nice list, they'll get what's coming to them where it'd be presents or  death.  (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

DVD Review: Forever Knight - Season One (1992 - 1993)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Tuesday, January 19, 2016 0 comments

Forever Knight might sound like a name of another crappy spin-off to the classic show, Knight Rider (1982 - 1986), it is actually a vampire themed cop show from the 1990's and from Canada.  This show is about a vampire named Nicholas Knight who is also a cop and a damned good one at that as his vampire abilities help him spot clues and criminals, he can also take a hit or two due to conventional weapons not being able to kill him.  Searching to stop crime is only a side quest, his real goal is to find the cure to his vampirism and make himself human once again as he is sick dining on blood and killing people, he also deeply regrets doing all the stuff he has done in the past.  This show might sound totally '90's but is it a show that should've stayed back in the 90's?  (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

PC Game Review: Camera Obscura (2015)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Monday, January 18, 2016 0 comments

Camera Obscura is a puzzling platformer game where you play as a female photographer that has decided to explore an old tower full of mystery and great dangers. This old tower is also in complete ruins, the tower is full of pits and platforms that make the tower darn near impossible to explore. Our heroine of this game has found a way to travel the tower as she has a magic camera that has the ability to capture an image of nearly any platform found in the game. Once you have captured an image you are free to move the image around for a short amount of time.  What you can do with the image is incredible, you can use the photographs to make all of the platforms you need to traverse deeper into the tower. Finally, we get to see a product of media that uses selfies in a way that's not pointless, annoying, or Kardashian... Or will it? (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

PC Game Review: Barbarian Brawl (2015)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Thursday, January 7, 2016 0 comments

Barbarian Brawl is a third-person online deathmatch combat game that has you playing one of six barbarians in an act of mortal combat. You will battle across a single battlefield full of traps, power-ups, meat, and a purple haze (hearing that makes me want to play my Jimi Hendrix albums) and the battle won't end until a warrior wins by gaining the most amount of kills. Characters you'll be playing in this game includes: Baabaar, the classic muscle bound warrior.  Crazy Eyes, a crazy looking bugger that runs around wearing animal skin.  Buttercup, the buxom beauty that will have all the guys go crazy.  Bryn Hildr, a woman that's fat but far from being lazy and she won't stop until she sings (hooray for bad puns).  Mr. Rotten, another crazy bugger that lives up to his name.  Lastly we have Klondike, a glutton for food, punishment, and raising hell. This game certainly has a basic concept but will it be too basic to enjoy? (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

PC Game Review: Mighty Switch Force: Hyper Drive Edition (2011,2015)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Tuesday, January 5, 2016 0 comments

Mighty Switch Force: Hyper Drive Edition (a very clever pun on HD edition) is an action platforming puzzle game (that's some combination) that has you playing as a hot, hotshot police officer named Patrica Wagon. Patricia Wagon is on the job to go out and capture a bunch of hot criminals named the Hooligan Sisters as they have escaped from a police van that was taking them to prison. To arrest these criminals, Patricia Wagon must travel across levels that are full of block puzzles and these puzzles will require you to use your brain to figure out how to get to the criminals, all while trying to beat the levels in a fast time. Hot girls, hot action, hot puzzles, all in one hot platformer? This game must be too good to be true... Right? (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

PC Game Review: N2O - Nitrous Oxide (1998)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Friday, January 1, 2016 0 comments

N2O (AKA N2O: Nitrous Oxide) is a Tempest-esk styled shmup (shoot 'em up) that has you playing as a lone space pilot that's on a mission to save the universe. What is he/she/other (could be a robot or an alien) saving the universe from? Well, the pilot is trying to save the universe from a giant alien that is filled with a legion of killer space bugs. The way the pilot must save the universe is by flying inside of the giant alien, blow it up from the inside and wipe out any space bug that they see. Does humanity even stand a chance?  Well, that'll depend on your skills but the real question is that is this game any good?  (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).
