Why Is Destiny 2 Still Relevant In 2021? Why Is Destiny 2 Still Relevant In 2021?

(AfroGamers.com) Destiny 2 is developed and published by Bungie. It is an open world first person shooting game that has many MMO elements to it. The first Destiny was released in 2014 to pretty polarizing reviews. On one side, people loved the setting, story, and gameplay. However, on the other, people hated the loot circle, repetitive activities, and lack of constant content. Almost eight years later,... [Read more of this review]

(AfroGamers.com) The very first throwback video games article that I decided to write about is about my favorite first person shooting video game of all time in The Nintendo 64 version of Goldeneye 007. Playing this game was such an overwhelmingly amazing experience because you got to use a multitude of weapons from 007’s signature PP7 gun to the most powerful gun ever in The 007 Universe in The... [Read more of this review]

(AfroGamers.com) This year, we’re supposed to get Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2. With recent events as they were earlier in the year, that was pushed back along with a couple of other anticipated games. Needing my Vampire: The Masquerade fix now, I went ahead and played the first game which dropped November 2004. Needless to say, after you’ve played some of the original’s contemporaries... [Read more of this review]


The Venture Bros Is Still One Of Adult Swim’s Best Cartoons. The Venture Bros Is Still One Of Adult Swim’s Best Cartoons.

(AfroGamers.com) My favorite Adult Swim show ever is The Venture Bros. I grew up on launch-era Cartoon Network and most of the line-up was made up of older cartoons mixed in with a couple of new ones. As time went on, the older cartoons started to take a back seat before being phased out and moved to Boomerang. What Counts As Super Science? One of my favorite old school cartoons was Jonny Quest. While... [Read more of this review]


How the Avengers Went From B-Team to A-Team. How the Avengers Went From B-Team to A-Team.

(AfroGamers.com) The ascension of Marvel’s The Avengers into an A-tier team is actually pretty straight-forward. It all goes back to the late 1990s—1995 to be exact—when Marvel took its first earning loss. A long-running entity such as Marvel should’ve been able to tank the hit and rebound but not only did the comics giant’s knees buckle, it went face down to the mat. It would declare bankruptcy... [Read more of this review]

(AfroGamers.com) I love martial arts manga and manhua as we’ve established. While there are a lot of manga out there about martial arts, the South Korea and Chinese martial arts manhua/manhwa are a different beast. Let’s look at seven more martial arts manga (or manhua/manhwa) to check out!

5 Things To Love About X-Men Vol. 2. 5 Things To Love About X-Men Vol. 2.

(AfroGamers.com) Between Judge Dredd and random manga, I’ve been reading the 90s X-Men or X-Men Vol. 2. It’s the first leg of the X-Men Legacy run starting in 1991. It also happened to be the series closest to the popular 90s cartoon. Let’s look at five things that stand out about X-Men Legacy. 5. Story Pacing I’m big on the pace of everything: stories, episodes, films, wrestling matches—pace... [Read more of this review]


Judge Dredd vs. Judge Death: Round 1. Judge Dredd vs. Judge Death: Round 1.

(AfroGamers.com) It’s been a while since we actually looked at some stories from Judge Dredd. While enjoying 2000 A.D, I like to check out the previous stories. Unlike the major American publishers’ best monthly offerings, Britain’s best weekly offering has a long-running story where previous cases often feed into current stories. One such case is the Judge Death three-parter. We’re going... [Read more of this review]


Ranking the Skywalker Saga of Star Wars. Ranking the Skywalker Saga of Star Wars.

(AfroGamers.com) Star Wars is a long-running space opera that I didn’t fully appreciate until high school. It was this franchise that was extremely popular, always on movie weekends, and just always around…just like Star Trek, actually. So, I’m going to rank the current trilogies or the “Skywalker Saga”. Let’s see where your favorite falls. 3. The Original Trilogy (Star Wars, The Empire... [Read more of this review]


Black Voice Actor Appreciation: Cree Summer. Black Voice Actor Appreciation: Cree Summer.

(AfroGamers.com) For many of us—including a 90s kid like myself—Cree Summer was one of the voices of our childhood. Many voice actors have voices that can sound many different characters of different ages or backgrounds. In that same pool are vice actors who have stock voices. Nothing about their voice really stand out at all and you wouldn’t be able to pull them out from background rabble if... [Read more of this review]


Comic Book Revamps Are A Mixed Bag. Comic Book Revamps Are A Mixed Bag.

(AfroGamers.com) Ah yes, comic book revamps. DC and Marvel are known for revamping their comic book lines when things are starting to get a little stale. It also happens when sales across the board suffer. This often takes the form of starting from the beginning and just going forward with the series. With the internet and social media, fans usually get a heads up about big story events or comic universe... [Read more of this review]


Manga Showdown: Lone Wolf & Cub vs. Astro Boy. Manga Showdown: Lone Wolf & Cub vs. Astro Boy.

(AfroGamers.com) We’ve got a showdown of two influential manga series! Osamu Tezuka’s iconic shonen series Astro Boy will take on the Golden Duo of Goseki Kojima and Kazuo Koike’s samurai series Lone Wolf and Cub! Both series are ones that heavily influenced my love of manga but which one wins? Astro Boy (1952-1968) Astro Boy came out in 1952 and ran until 1968. It is one of those early series... [Read more of this review]
