Remnants & Relics. Buttonhole *Special* Feature

Welcome dear reader to Remnants & Relics, the first in an ongoing series of features looking back at various aspects of yesterday's video games. This series is one that I'd hoped to kick off many months ago, but I just haven't had the time to do it justice, until now. So consider this your opportunity to put on your best pair or rose-tinted glasses, open up a luke-warm can of clichés and prepare to hop aboard the way-back-machine.... It came from beyond two dimensions! -A Look Back at Isometric Gaming-

ACMI Day Tripper

Welcome Buttonhole readers to another feature that is so choc-full of goodness that I've divided it into several sections. The top half is about the Indy video games showcased at ACMI. The bottom half is about the Pixar exhibit. It's ridiculously long and all terribly interesting to read, so you may as well read it in two halves, or just the parts that interest you. After reading about the ACMI exhibits on their website and getting more than a little excited, I decided to make the perilous trek to inner Melbourne. With time on my side and money stuffed in my pocket I ventured forth to the train station. Once on board I passed the time by staring out the window, reading a volume of Dark Horse's Concrete and snacking on tasty fruit. Arriving at Flinders St, I wandered around until inevitably finding my way out of the rat-maze like station.

Classic Comic-book Review. Kraven's Last Hunt

"Here lies Spider-Man - Slain by the Hunter" So reads the grave of one of histories greatest superheros. "But he's not dead, is he? What happened to everyone's favourite web-slinger? Spidey seems to be alive and well now, what with his three movie deal and a string of monthly Marvel comic-book titles to his name, so why was he buried six feet under? The year is 1987. The company is Marvel. The character is Sergei Kravinov also known as 'Kraven the Hunter.' Back in the 60's Stan and Steve (Lee and Ditko, respectively) churned out a heap of cool villains for the title "Amazing Spider-Man." Doctor Octopus, The Cham

It has been a rough week, to put it mildly. Firstly, my PC totally died on me. I don't think you need me to tell you that it's difficult to run a website without a computer. So, funnily enough, I wasn't too happy about that. It has been fixed and is running again now, but it was certainly down for long enough to ensure I fell even further behind with things than I already was. There's no use sitting around worrying about that though; I'll just move along and try to catch up, as well as I can.

That kind of thing really isn't the end of the world. Unfortunately, however, something else happened (on the very same day my PC started impersonating an odourless, rectangular turd) that was even worse. Much, much worse. I won't be going into that, because it is a private issue and one that is not really mine to discuss. Besides, this is not an appropriate place to talk about such things.

Don't worry though; Buttonhole is not going to stop rocking. Never! We are unstoppable. The good news is still rolling in, on a nearly daily basis. Our continued growth and success is fully assured. For instance, I will soon be posting a DVD review from our newest support publisher. It is a very cool Russian flick called Night Watch. I reckon all you Buffy and Angel fans (I know full well that there are many of you amongst our readers) would love this one.

Guess what? You have the chance to win a free copy of Night Watch for yourself. Buttonhole will have five copies of the DVDs to give away. Stay tuned in to planet Buttonhole and make sure you check out my upcoming review of the film, where I shall present you with a few questions. The first five people to respond with the correct answers will score themselves a copy. That's pretty sweet; after all, everyone loves free shit, right?

I have the majority of the second parts written for both my "in depth look" at Bret Hart's career (and the DVD dedicated to it) and Part 2 of my new "Old Games That Sure Don't Suck" column. Both of those should be up soon, along with all of the other reviews I've been working on (there are many of them too, believe me!). Also, as usual, you can also expect a nice variety of tasty content, courtesy of Buttonhole's other sexy contributors.

Well, that's it from me, for now. Over and out.

Don't damn me, when I speak a piece of mind
Sometimes you kick
Friends will arrive, friends will disappear
Tell me tell me tell me the answer
And time goes by so slowly

Which of these topics would you like Buttonhole to focus on?

Only Yesterday. Anime Review

The problem with having favourite films is that every time I watch another Studio Ghibli film it becomes my new favourite. It kind of renders the word 'favourite' meaningless when every Studio Ghibli film takes my breath away. Still, I can't complain about being thoroughly entertained by this whimsical and insightful film, "Only Yesterday". This gem was directed by Isao Takahata, well known for his anime film Grave of the Fireflies. Although Only Yesterday is a light hearted film that ambles along at a leisurely pace, it still manages to explore themes such as love, work, family relationship struggles, following your dreams and country versus city living. In the film, the main character Taeko decides to take a working vacation in the country, getting away from her office bound job and unexpectedly starts t

Speed Grapher V1. Anime Review

Well, "I don't like it" was my initial feeling when viewing this Anime for the first time. Subsequent viewings haven't changed my views a great deal. Nothing really stands out as being absolute shit but it seems that this series tries too hard. It's almost like they were more interested in creating something 'edgy' and confronting but sadly forgot to include an even remotely palatable story. The hero of this particular piece is a bloke called Tatsumi Saiga. Tatsumi is a photographer and a veteran war journalist for whom taking photos has become somewhat of a fetish. Although he seems to have become jaded - nothing is worth wasting his film on - that is, at least until he stumbles across an exclusive club for the mega rich
