SUPER MARIO MAKER 2 REVIEW ROUNDUP
I considered the first Super Mario Maker as the WiiU's killer app mostly because it made the best use of the Gamepad controller. Now we are getting the part 2 for the Switch long after the WiiU was taken out back and put to sleep. But will the sequel be as successful on the Switch especially without the Gamepad? Here's the round up:
The original Teen Titans that first aired on Cartoon Network back in 2003 was, In my opinion, a near masterpiece in storytelling, character development and animation. It also had arguably the best version of Slade Wilson/Deathstroke in any medium ever. The show's quality may have dipped in its final seasons but, I too like so many other super fan shed grown man tears when it was prematurely cancelled. Now DC/WB animation is bringing them back but with one big catch.
Next to UNITY, UNREAL ENGINE 4 is arguably the world's most popular and complete suite of development tools made for anyone working with real-time technology. This is especially so for the gaming industry where everything from the large triple-A mega blockbusters games to the small indie titles is powered by Unreal. So great news for us Blender lovers out there, we can now add a new add on to Blender 2.80 for Unreal Engine four.

Are you tired of the sweet, innocent, kiddy look of the current Pokemon animated series? Well Adi Shankar, the creator of Castlevania and Devil May Cry animated series on Netflix, shared his vision of a darker Pokemon world that may be up your alley. The short film displayed a dark world, blood and gore and a totally buffed Brock kicking ass. The only thing that seems familiar is Ash's routine Pokemon battle defeat. The short film can be viewed below:
TOY STORY 4 REVIEW ROUNDUP:
The Toy Story series had always held a special place in my heart. The first film was our introduction to the creative genius of Pixar Animation Studio, sparking a love for computer animation that helped lead to the creation of Blue Crescent Studio. This love also goes a little deeper than that. As a child, I loved playing with my toys with my imagination taking us on countless adventures, so this film series definitely spoke to me. Now, after twenty-five years, we have arrived at the end with the promise to expect a roller-coaster of emotions before the credits begin rolling. So...did Toy Story 4 delivered? Here are five of some of the top film critics review.
