February 3 has arrived and Bandai Namco has finally unleashed the PC/Steam version of Road to Boruto, which is an expansion for the 3D cel-shaded anime fighter Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 or a standalone purchase if you don’t have the base game yet, similar to how they did things with Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 Full Burst.

Last June 7th, Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty: The Complete Second Season debuted on Blu-Ray and DVD formats, giving fans of the animated sci-fi comedy series a chance to own the oddball show’s sophomore season and watch the episodes as many times as we want (roughly: way too much.)

The Loud House: Nick Takes a Loud Leap Forward (Review)

After completing all of my graduating college senior work, getting through capstones, etc., I’ve finally been able to sit down and actually watch a bit of what’s been released. I have now seen “The Sweet Spot” and “A Tale of Two Tables.” I’ve been excited for this show ever since the artwork was first being released, and now that I’ve seen a bit of it, I’ve got high hopes for ...

Good Dinosaur — Good Movie: “The Good Dinosaur” Review

After an amazing Thanksgiving dinner prepared by unofficial “chef of the century”, my mom, I took two old friends from out of town to the movies. We saw Pixar’s latest, The Good Dinosaur. This marks the first time that the studio has released two films in the same year. I’m happy to report that both films live up to the standards we’ve come to expect from the cutting-edge company. And ...

Pixar’s Return to Form: A Review of “Inside Out”

Inside Out was released in theaters this week to almost universal acclaim, something we have come to expect from Pixar.

Review: Dragonball Xenoverse Steam Version

A close look on Dragonball Xenoverse’s Steam port may be overdue at this point considering that the game has been released for a couple of weeks now, but we wanted to keep mum until the dust has settled because PC releases (these days) seem to be plagued with launch day hitches that make games look worse than they really are. After several weeks of playtime and a couple of patches, it seems ...

I mean, I’ve been stealing the guy’s content for years now and posting it on Toonbarn as news. I figured the content on the book is going to last me a while. So first things first, what’s this book ...

Review: Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart

Last October 7th, Shout! Factory released Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart for home video, via a Blu-Ray Combo pack that includes a DVD and a Digital copy as well. The French animated film might not be come with as much prestige as one would expect from CG animated features that came from the major studios, but its roots are by no means less impressive – Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart is based ...
