In Honor of old Hallow's eve, it will be a horror film that gently blends Scream with Nightmare on Elm Street with just a PINCH of I Know What You Did Last Summer.
Martin, Cartoon Monsoon: Oh, Shoot!: Director's Cut

Pure Intellect Cave here. Not to brag, but while you were cat-assing that last test, I rewrote the collected works of... everything ever. If I gotta read this garbage for eternity, I might as well improve it. So next time you curl up with a time-honored classic and think to yourself "Man, I do not remember the Brothers Karamazov busting so many ghosts", you can thank yours truly.

The way I see it, he goes into a room with a stuffy TV executive who doesn't know his arse from his elbow and goes into great detail about the backstory, the rich setting, how the entire cast is made up of good actors portraying likeable characters. Then he went on to explain the witty well written script and suddenly his best show ever is stuck in TV scheduling hell and cancelled before the paint on the set could dry.

Mad Max on jet skis. Cool huh? Nah, not really.

Attractive ’90s punks struggling for water will be the driving force of the plot, such as it is, which led me to call this movie 'What If Dune starred the cast of Hackers?'
Chris Sims on Tank Girl

So, how does the actual game play? Imagine this: a sidescrolling action game, one that would involve precision platforming and the need for careful controls. All right, now imagine it uses more or less the exact same control setup as MK3. If you don't go run screaming from this article yet, you might be fit to play this. 'Might' being the key word here.

Tat Wood, in what may be the single most psychologically revealing moment in the whole of About Time, asks 'what other programme would give you a western in a swamp' as if this is some sort of mark of distinction or a reason to like this story, but for those of us who are not Tat Wood the fact remains that this is not a combination that really sells itself to us.
