Xbox One Backward Compatible Games: The Full, Final List Xbox One Backward Compatible Games: The Full, Final List

June: Well, here we are. The final twenty titles. And you know, it’s a weird collection of games, but it also... feels right, somehow. Classic original Xbox tiles (including all of the Splinter Cell titles from that era), one of my holdouts Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, the underrated Peter Jackson’s King Kong, the…

Endgame's resolution of Black Widow was a disservice to both her, and Hawkeye Endgame's resolution of Black Widow was a disservice to both her, and Hawkeye

Okay, it’s been nearly a month, so I’m not gonna dispense with a spoiler warning at this point. By now, you all should be on the same page with why some many are annoyed by how Avengers: Endgame killed one of the MCU’s staple characters: Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow. Yes, it was quick, it ended a character…

Netflix Announces Evangelion 4.44, Replaces Entire Previous Staff Netflix Announces Evangelion 4.44, Replaces Entire Previous Staff

In a surprise move that’s shocked the entire anime industry, Netflix today revealed not only did they secure the rights to the long, long, long awaited Evangelion 4.44, but the streaming service is also producing the movie as well, replacing not only the previous voice actors for the dub, but going so far as to using…

TGRIP's Top 10 Anime of 2018 TGRIP's Top 10 Anime of 2018

It feels like each year favors a specific medium, doesn’t it? 2017 had a seemingly never-ending slew of good movies, 2016 had a ton of great games, 2015 was a return to form for pop music, and 2012 was when all of those mediums somehow reached a zenith that we haven’t seen since. 2018 meanwhile will probably go down…

TGRIP's Top 5 Games of 2018 TGRIP's Top 5 Games of 2018

Alright, let’s get a few things out of the way: Monster Hunter World, Read Dead Redemption 2, and Smash Bros Ultimate won’t be on this list. Not because they’re undeserving, but rather it’s because I didn’t have as much spare time for a bunch of new games this year, at least for ones that are somewhat out of my usual…

The Best of What I Missed in 2017 The Best of What I Missed in 2017

Part of me is somewhat ashamed of how I’ve let my writing fall onto the backburner for most of this year, but in my defense 2018 has just been an utterly unforgiving year. The year-end lists are going to be especially depressing this time around, since we’re going to collectively say “wait, that was from this year?”…

SSSS Gridman's Character Designs are Referencing Obscure Transformers Characters SSSS Gridman's Character Designs are Referencing Obscure Transformers Characters

How can make a mecha series made by Studio Trigger even better? By leaving a crapton of easter eggs for diehard Transformers fans, that’s how.

The High Guardian Spice Backlash is Bullshit The High Guardian Spice Backlash is Bullshit

Stop me if you heard of this one before: a cutesy animated series is announced, people get just a look at it, and it’s declared to be a cancer that must be cancelled immediately.

Instant Classic: Megalobox's Incredible OST Instant Classic: Megalobox's Incredible OST

I’d be willing to bet just about anything that when the subject of “classic anime soundtrack” comes up, a single from Cowboy Bebop instantly comes to mind to the vast majority of anime viewers. What’d be less certain however is which track, but for good reason: Bebop’s soundtrack isn’t just a landmark for having a…

Medabots Reboot Confirmed Medabots Reboot Confirmed

In the current trend of old anime properties with a modicum of nostalgia being re-adapted into new series and movies (Pokemon Origins, Digimon Tri, Gundam the Origin), the time has come for the best ever Pokemon ripoff robot fighting series to be remade for the 2010s.

Fable 4 Confirmed, Being Developed by Playground Games Fable 4 Confirmed, Being Developed by Playground Games

In a bold move by Microsoft, a beloved series they own is actually being resurrected. In the wake of the shuttered Lionshead Stuios, Fable 4 is not only in the works, but is also being handled by the best team in the business: Playground Games. Yes, the team noted for its open world racing series, Forza Horizon, is…

TAY Theme Week: My Nintendo Switch, One Month Later

This isn’t my first Nintendo console, but so far it is getting much more use than my previous two encounters. When I got my Gamecube over a decade ago, my parents quickly forbade me from playing on it after seeing what it did to my grades (c’mon, I was a second grader back then), and my 2DS (yes, I bought a 2DS. Eat…

In This Corner of The World: One of The Best War Movies, Now on Netflix In This Corner of The World: One of The Best War Movies, Now on Netflix

When you think of a great war movie, what comes to your mind? Saving Private Ryan, probably. Maybe Dunkirk if you’re into more recent stuff. Perhaps even The Bridge on the River Kwai, if it’s a genre you’re really into. But if you’re an anime fan, there’s a very good chance Grave of the Fireflies is something you’re…

TGRIP's ConTAYct Info Page (Updated)

Alright, so; I got a Switch, and I’m back on Steam. So, update time I guess, since I could really use some Nintendo friends (but where could I possibly find any of those, here, on this site of all places...?)

So, how’s everyone’s winter anime season going?

TGRIP's Top 5 Games of 2017

Sometimes making a Best of Year list is easy, but this wasn’t one of those times. Between not getting a Nintendo Switch (yet) and it being a lackluster year for Xbox, I just didn’t play that many games this year. 2017 was a great year for movies, television, and anime, an average year for pop music, and I’d personally…

TGRIP's Top 5 Anime of 2017 TGRIP's Top 5 Anime of 2017

So as I said before, 2016 was a lackluster year for anime, but 2017 on the other hand, perhaps as a cosmic reward for how terrible the year was in general, was a great year for media and entertainment in multiple mediums. A bunch of good games, tons of great movies, pop music that... okay, pop was at best average that…
