Notice me, Senpai! Oh, ahem... please excuse me. I got a little sidetracked there for a moment. That’s what happens to you when you’re sucked into an idyllic high school setting, where your virtual animated avatar is a super popular cutie, who can date any guy because they are some kind of social chameleon. But to claw myself out of the sugary-sweetness for just a moment, I should probably explain what the heck I’m going on about!


If you have no idea what Tokimeki Memorial Girl’s Side is, then to wrap it up in a nutshell it’s a female orientated dating sim (a part of the Otome genre of gaming) that guides you through the high school life of a teenage girl – the heroine who you can name and shape her credentials as you so desire – in her quest to romance one or more eligible bachelors, in an attempt to get a love confession at the end of the game. The Tokimeki Memorial franchise was originally created around a mouldable male character trying to win the heart of one of many datable girls, though Konami, the creator of the franchise, decided they would branch out to their female audience and create the ‘Girl’s Side’ spin off.

Spanning over two decades, the Resident Evil saga has been a terrifying journey through viral-born zombie nightmare. Players have controlled beleaguered survivors, with only their sheer will and meagre ammo as their crutches of survival. Threats don’t always come in the likeliest of forms, but whatever the challenge, it has been faced with whatever determination that can be mustered. The horror may have grown to an incredulous scale as the series has progressed, pretty much touching all corners of the planet; but the true catalyst or all the terror that has ensued started simply within a lonely mansion in the woods.


So, let’s go to that mansion, right back to the beginning, to where a legacy of evil was born.


Welcome to the world of survival horror. Good luck.

A third foray for the CGI movies series brings Leon S. Kennedy back to our screens with Chris Redfield and Rebecca Chambers in tow to take on more virus-born nightmares.


It’s not often you get to see these types of movies turn up at a mainstream cinema chain, so I jumped at the chance to see a limited screening run by the Showcase Cinema on 14th June 2017. Having the cinema ambience just felt like an extra treat to go along with the viewing. It wasn’t a particularly packed out showing I attended, though having only discovered it was playing almost last minute myself, maybe it was a case that many people didn’t know it was on. Aside, it was nice not to have too full a cinema; it was a very chilled out atmosphere.

When filmmakers hit on a good thing, you can smell the sequels coming from a mile away. It’s exciting to have the prospect of further exploration of a movie’s universe, to build it into a franchise. The depths that creative film writers can go with such ventures can spawn successes like the Star Wars saga as a prime example, which branches out to create characters and worlds that become engrained in our consciousness. Moviemakers can be the champions of imaginative material, whose creations can charm and inspire viewers for generations to come...


... Or it can be a proverbial car crash where someone forgot to attach the brake pedals to stop the franchise taking a wrong turn right off the edge of Mt. What-Were-You-Thinking?!
