Nowadays, the multiverse is all the rage among young people. And no, we are that talking about that boring mumbo jumbo multi realms of existence scientists have been yapping on about for years. But, the cool type that sees all of your favourite childhood memories somehow found a way to come together to beat the sh*t out of each other. From Spiderman to Doctor Strange, from Nintendo to Nickelodeon, it seems we witness a new multiverse brawl every two months. Now, it's Warner Brothers' turn with their new 'Smash like' game Multiversus.
Hey...If you only had been hanging around here in the past few weeks, you may had missed the big news that Netflix had cancelled a few of their big upcoming animated projects and studios. For that...we are sorry, but you could cut us some slack since there are only two of us remaining here at studio. Anyways...after all the much deserve backlash, Netflix responded with a host of animation related announcements and promo vid to remind us all that they are still our friendly lovable neighbours from down the street.
First off, we must apologise to Dreamworks. Their latest animated adventure had been baking in the oven for months, and exactly before its release, the majority of the media (including us) were blinded by the shining beacon, which was The Pus in Boots sequel announcement.

The Sea Beast! and early impressions have me excited.
This year, Nintendo Switch only gamers had to endure watching their multiplatform counterparts enjoy the open-world goodness of games like Elden Ring and Horizon Forbidden West with great envy. That envy was somewhat eased with the knowledge that the sequel to one of the best Switch games was on its way to the platform this year. Well...until it wasn't:
First of all, I have to get this off my chest. Kirby sucks! He really does! Now that I have gotten that overused pun out of the way let's gobble up the real meat of the matter. The Kirby series has been one of Nintendo's most cherished IPs, with all of the Big N's consoles hosting at least one game featuring the cute pink balloon with feet. However, fans haven't seen him move about in three dimensions since Kirby 64, so we are long overdue for such an adventure.
