With the calendar having officially rolled over to 2018 it's only appropriate that we look back at some of the best games of the previous year. Julian, Daniel and Jeremy discuss some of their favourite games of 2017, including Horizon: Zero Dawn, Middle Earth: Shadow of War, Mario Odyssey and much more. The guys then turn their gaze toward the future and look forward to some of the big games coming down the pike in 2018. All this and so much more on another episode of ToB Games!
Once the holidays are over things move quickly into awards season. Often considered the precursor to The Oscars, The Golden Globes are one of the year's biggest award shows. The ToB Crew is here to break down the results from this year's ceremony as well as touch on a few news bits that have surfaced in the new year.
It's time again for one of our favourite shows of the year. The episode where we talk about the best shows and movies that we saw in 2017. Previously it would have simply been called the "Best of 2017" but this year we would like to introduce you to "The First Annual Tobie Awards!", or "The Tobies" for short. It's essentially the same thing, we discuss our favourite shows and movies of the last year, but now it has a more official name. Join Daniel, Julian and Jeremy as they discuss the best of the best in what was a great year for both film and television.
There appears to be one constant among those who’ve seen The Last Jedi. Whether you liked it or not people seem to agree that Benicio Del Toro’s character is terrible. Playing a character named DJ he doesn't have a huge role in the film, but with so much hate being thrown his way I wanted to offer him up some defense.
Feeling down? In a funk? Well you aren't alone and I have the perfect tonic to break you out of your slump. It's called The Good Place and it's a comedy with so much happiness and bliss that I guarantee you'll be smiling from ear to ear from minute one. Let me sell you on it.
Every cable network and streaming service seems to have a "must watch" show. With so much quality content out there how are you supposed to pick? This is the most important question facing TV lovers in this era of "peak TV", and with so many options it's easy to get overwhelmed and miss out on the best series. Here's a strategy that just might help you find your new favourite show.
Star Wars Battlefront II officially launches tomorrow. What should have been an overwhelmingly exciting day for gamers and Star Wars fans alike is instead mired in a controversy. Microtransactions, specifically loot boxes, have reportedly poisoned the games multiplayer and people aren't happy. I look at the reason why so many gamers are frustrated by EA's microtransaction strategy.
With the news that Disney could possibly buy 21st Century Fox a lot of the surrounding talk has been about what would happen with Fox's Marvel properties, specifically The X-Men. People get excited at the prospect of seeing Wolverine and the gang join up with The Avengers in the MCU but is it really a good idea?
Justice League is just around the corner and DC's massive superhero team-up will undoubtedly do just fine at the box office. The real question is whether it will actually be any good? It's too early to know for sure but there are definitely some signs and symptoms that might be pointing to another critical disappointment for DC and Warner Bros.
Tis' the season for spooks and scares. So with freights on my mind I put some thought (and some actual research) into why certain people are more inclined to enjoy horror movies. Personally, they scare the pants off of me, but what is it about those weirdos who love em?
This week EA announced that there would be major changes coming to their much anticipated action-adventure Star Wars game. Along with that news we learned that they would be closing Visceral Games, the studio who had been working on the game since 2013. I examine what their curt press release says about the future of the game, the publisher and the games industry as a whole.
The latest sci-fi blockbuster failed to impress at the box office this past weekend. This news shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone though. It's a phrase becoming far too common these days. So what caused Blade Runner 2049, a well made and well reviewed movie, to fail financially? The signs were staring us right in the face.
It’s that time of year; the temperature is dropping, the leaves are falling and new shows are hitting our TVs. Things are a bit more complicated this year however. It’s not as easy as it once was. You can't just set your PVR to record all the new hit series. Some things are on premium cable, others can only be found on streaming services. So which one’s are worth watching? I’ve taken a look at some of this fall’s biggest new series and give you the scoop on which one’s are worth your time and money.
