Much of the first episode of Bacanno! is spent discussing the nature of stories, with some pretty heavy meta commentary asking if the one it’s about to tell can have either a main character or a true beginning. This is spliced between a series of seemingly random (yet still totally awesome) scenes all focusing on different people from the show’s massive cast, and all presented in a non-chronological sequence. Confusing? Maybe a little at first. Good? Probably the best thing I’ve ever seen.
Persona 4 The Animation may have a relatively specific appeal, but for fans of the game it’s an easy recommendation. I mean who wouldn’t want an anime retelling of their favourite RPG? It’s an excellent example of Japan’s smart attitude towards transmedia, and whilst it’s essentially a retelling of the game’s story, it is an entertaining and well-crafted adaptation of its source material.
I love Fez. I loved Fez on the Xbox 360 and now I love it on PS4. I’ve got so many good things to say about this game that I’m worried it’s gunna sound sarcastic. I think Phil Fish is an exceptionally talented game designer and that Fez is an outright masterpiece. No sarcasm, no ‘but…’, I really mean it. I love Fez.
