I've just done a pretty damn quick remodelling of the website. Please let me know what you think about it, what you like/what you don't, yada yada yada. 
I have also just rejigged my Patreon page, and am in the process of sorting out YouTube as well, so if you're feeling generous and want to support me on Patreon, then click here!
If you'd like to support us in another way, then there's always the good ol' Amazon Wishlist (in case you feel like sending us something for review) - ignore the first page though. Went on a little clothes-adding spree haha, or you could show support by just leaving a comment, a like or sharing this page - it's all appreciated!
And as I said above, tell me what you think about the new look site.

It's that time again! Time for a new Entries to the Asylum post :)

Somehow managed to forget the three The Raid/The Raid II items that I got recently from my last post despite posting about them on Insta and mentioning that I'd be doing an "Entries..." post *facepalm*

So Little Time.

I've done quick posts like this before, and I'm sure I'll no doubt do them again in the future. But holy crap, it is so frustrating to realise how little time I have to do things these days.
Between finishing up my last job as Deputy Team Leader, and starting my new job (which is gonna be a whole lot more work!), and the kids, I barely get any time to play any games or watch any movies, etc., let alone find the time to review them.

That's not the fault of the show, or the other guests, it was purely because it was a short 15-20 minute segment of a radio broadcast, and there simply wasn't enough time for everyone to go into great detail. You can listen to it if you like here (from about 38 minutes in). So, since I didn't get to say everything I wanted to, I thought, where better to say it all than right here?

So if you haven't already heard, and I'd imagine that even if you're not a fan of Pewds' you will have, but PewDiePie has been dropped by Disney's Maker Studios, amid drama surrounding some "anti-Semitic" comments in his most recent videos. Wall Street Jo…
