MyM issue 28 Out now!

After last month's disappointing no-show, I'm pleased to report I'm back in the current issue of MyM (number 28) which you'll find in all good newsagents,(and probably some crap ones) as well at the App Store. My reviews are for Naruto Shippuden and Dragon Ball volume 2, so look out for it! Last month most of my online efforts were spent on continuing to write for my new blog AFA- so make sure you check it out, if you're an animation fan. Over on KSM I covered the E3 Games Show with the biggest reveals from Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo. I also produced another couple of editions of Bonus Stage. More stuff coming soon, so make sure you follow me on your social media network of choice to stay in the loop! Twitter FB G+

One Day late, Your May Monthly Update

With another month having whizzed by, it's time for your monthly update! The current issue of MyM (issue 26) is still available (in print and digital editions) featuring my reviews of the original Dragon Ball and the latest One Piece volume. Both reviews are pretty short, but you can read my extended thoughts on the former in the AFA review. Speaking of Animation For Adults, that new site has been where most of my attention has been lately, and it's ticking along quite nicely. As well as regular news updates, recent content include reviews of Princess Mononoke, Frozen and the Iron Man anime movie. To keep up with AFA, make sure to follow us on twitter and/or Facebook.

Also this (er..last?) month:  The Star Wars Games That Time Forgot,  Street Fighter Assassin's Fist- Best Fighting Game Movie So Far?   and yet more Bonus Stage.

Blog's Not Dead: April Update

OK, OK, first things first- sorry I have been so bad at updating the blog (I note with shame this is my first post of '14). I'm going to try and at least get back to my monthly updates. But as it's been so long I've got quite a few things to share with you. I've continued to appear in MyM, and the latest issue (25) is out now both in all good shops where magazines are sold, and the App store. I did unfortunately miss my first issue- no contribution from me in number 24! However, I did write an article that month, that unfortunately got bumped, so I hope to bring you news of that one shortly.
I'm still contributing to KSM, although not as frequently. New Editions Of Bonus Stage have gone up regularly over on NerdSpan too.

The big news however is I have launched a new site of my own- AFA: Animation For Adults. It's been up since the end of last year, and I started by reposting my old Screen Highway stuff, before gradually building up quite an archive of new content, including news, reviews and articles. Too many to list here so,  go check it out for find out more for yourself! It's very early days, but I'm quite pleased with how it's going so far. To make sure you stay in the loop with what I'm up to make sure to follow me on twitter and/or facebook. See you next month (I hope!).

Last Post (.......this year)

So, 2013 is nearly over and quite frankly I will be quite happy to see the back of it, personally. But there's still time for another Chronicles update before I stop writing for the festive season! MyM issue #21 is out now (in shops and app store). You'll find just one review from me this time, Shangri-la part 2. Secondly as alluded to in my previous post, I have started republishing my old Animation Avenue posts on a brand new blog. Currently, consider it in beta- design, format and even name are possibly temporary, but I will tell you more about it in 2014.

I have a few articles that will go up over Christmas week, keep an eye on my twitter for details. Starting with the Bonus Stage Christmas special! A very Merry Christmas to all my readers, and I'll see you next year.

Pardon the Interruption

It has been a while again, hasn't it. Yep I've been thoroughly slacking when it comes to updating the blog, but I have been writing in the meantime. Not as much as I'd like, as thanks to a combination of bad health and a sudden death in the family November was pretty much a write off. But here's a quick run-down of the latest:
  • Issue 19 and 20 of MyM have been released, featuring more reviews from me. Number 20 (currently on newstands) features my reviews of Guilty Crown, Shangri-La and Sengoku Basara.
  • I have a new feature on The Void called Downstream highlighting some of the best streaming TV and movies. First up Vampire Prosecutor!
  • My editing and writing at the site formelly known as Rebel Gaming has continued. We're now known as KillStreak Media. (Not a fan of the new name, but I still enjoy writing for the site all the same!)
  • It has come to my attention that Screen Highway is no longer online. Keep an eye out for exciting developments in the very near future though!

Issue 18 Out, Plus Plenty More

Well, yes its been rather too long since I updated, isn't it? The good news is that means I've got quite a lot of stuff to fill you in about. Firstly, issue number 18 of MyM magazine is now out in print and in App Store. In this issue I got to write an article I've wanted to write for a long time- a profile of the long running anime series Lupin III. It's a 3 page feature, and thanks to the designer it looks, super spiffy. You'll also find four reviews from me in this ish- Bleach series 11, One Piece volume 3, Rahxephon and Lady Death.

Things have really been picking up over on Rebel Gaming. We've taken on a load of new writers, which has meant I've had more editing to do. We've got some really talented folks there, old and new alike. I don't link to all the news I post there from here, but you can see all my work here.

New MyM Now Available (and other stuff...)

The newest issue of MyM (number 17) is out now on UK newstands and in the App store. Just one review from me this time Naruto Shippuden movie 3. I'm hoping to step up my content again in the near future.

What else is new from me? Plenty of stuff on Rebel Gaming, including The 3D platformers That Time Forgot, and the Fighting Games That Time Forgot. , two articles looking at some lesser know games from back in the day. Over on Japan Cinema I took a look at the classic anime flick Akira 25 years on. And on NerdSpan I've posted another two editions of my successful Bonus Stage series, the 21st and 22nd instalments no less!

Meanwhile, back from the dead, my former Rant Gaming article Rogue's Gallery, the 25 top Bad Guys In Gaming is back online, this time over on The Void!
