We now come to the last of my rest-of-year anticipation lists – this time, it’s games. For those who haven’t already, check out my similar lists of albums, TV shows and movies. We have plenty of games to look forward to in the coming months and here’s a look at what I’m anticipating for the rest of the year.
Thanks to events like San Diego Comic Con, we now have a lot more information about when your favourite television shows are returning and what new ones are coming this autumn/fall/cold times. So here’s a little list of what I’m anticipating in the 2015-16 season. (Note: I tried to choose shows that are premiering in 2015 so hopefully that justifies the absence of shows like Better Call Saul, The X-Files and Legends of Tomorrow.)
We’re officially halfway through 2015, so I’d like to go through my top three albums of the year so far. You can check out what I’m looking forward to for the rest of the year here (yes, that post is a bit out of date now), but without further ado, let’s see who made the list.
When people in the spotlight die, many people come out in their droves to mourn their passing. And while I always did feel a certain amount of grief, the death of a famous person never really affected me deeply. I always simply moved on. That was until today, when Satoru Iwata, CEO and President of Nintendo, passed away at age 55.
Hi, everybody. As some of you may or may not be aware, I’ve been a regular contributor to the Hip Hop Shelter Podcast. This was not something I was involved in the creation of, nor something I planned to have a major part in, but I’ve always wanted to do it at every opportunity. Chatting to Miller, Demaz, Derdy and Spaced about hip hop and other random stuff for an hour a week has been surprisingly fun. It is because of this that we’ve decided to take it to the next level by launching a Patreon campaign to help us expand our operations.
Community is a show that has managed to continue despite its creator being fired then rehired, the departure of main cast members at various points during the past two seasons and an full-on cancellation by NBC. This is in no small part thanks to its loyal fans and their uniting hashtag #sixseasonsandamovie. It’s no wonder then that Yahoo! (yes, the people who you used to have an email account with) decided to save the show from impending doom, and bring it to the internet, which is probably where most fans were watching it anyway. However, a show as volatile as Community, now free of network restrictions, was always going to be a risky prospect when released from its shackles. It’s easy to start thinking about whether bringing back the show was actually a good idea.
