All Points Bulletin: Thank You Iwata

July 19, 2015

Rare is the executive who is mourned by thousands. And maybe even more rare is one who remains so close to his audience. Mr. Iwata always made us feel the joy of gaming because he never lost it himself.

S.W.A.T. Reviews: Summer 2015 Pt. 1

July 15, 2015

Follow us directlyon Stitcher, or on iTunes

The premise of these reviews is simple: watch the first episode of a series and then immediately sit down to record a review mini-podcast. The reviews are five- to ten-minutes long and entirely off the cuff. As always we only review new shows (so no sequels or continuations) and try to avoid anything that just looks outright awful.

These are the first batch from the new season and now we’ve broken them into (helpful?) categories:

This is something new for 2015. We’ve decided to starting highlighting each anime season with a mini-version of our end of the year awards. We hope this helps cap-off the season with a splash (and helps us remember all of great things by the time the end of the year rolls around). So without further ado, our picks for the best of spring 2015 . . .
