Return to A.G.E.





A.G.E 2016

Anime.Games.Entertainment.

Ladies And Gentlemen. It's that time again. The time when we recognize everything that made 2015 a special year. From the glorious return to the galaxy far far away to exploring the outskirts of the post-apocalyptic Boston. To witness a tragic fall of Snow in a heartless winter to celebrate the life of some of pop-culture icons the land of the rising sun has to offer. Everyone, it's time to return to A.G.E.



I'm not gonna waste everyone's time. The award season is upon us and it looks like anything goes. Creed, the Rocky spin-off, surprises everyone (hell, even me) with Ryan Coogler's fantastic direction and Casts' knockout performance. Carol had a rough time sending a message that it deserves to be a front runner but an Oscar-worthy performances in forms of Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara and a confident film making by Todd Hanyes, it doesn't need to be. Because it may be, clearly, a best picture. 



Hideo Kojima and Konami are in a bit of a...tied knot but that doesn't stop Kojima-san to make his swan song to the Metal Gear Series one to remember for many years to come with The Phantom Pain. We remember the good ol' days with original Super Mario on SNES and now we can create your own special memory with Mario as well with Super Mario Maker. 


And You don't even need a PC to mod your own levels anymore. LOL. Bethesda makes an astonishing return of Fallout with the fourth installment and the famous adaptation of Andrizej Sapkowski's story comes to a close with Garalt Of Rivia's legendary finale in The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt! 

Anime doesn't get any bigger this year but could be a GIANT one! 

Psycho-Pass the Movie marks a brilliant return to the dark, dystopian future of what's right and what's wrong. Masashi Kishimoto's ninja phenomenon continues with, SPOILER FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN'T ACCUSTOMED WITH THE FINALE SO IF YOU'RE ONE OF THEM SKIP NOW!!!, Boruto, son of Naruto, taking the spotlight in a big way with his own movie. Game Of Thrones and Mad Men thrills audiences with endless twists and turns, not to mention the amazing performances from Jon Hamm, Peter Dinkage and Emilia Clarke.
Superheroes are tending to be the mainstay of entertainment be it the big screen or silver. And after watching flash, arrow and Marvel's new Daredevil and Jessica Jones courtesy of Netflix, We're all convinced. 

Trust me with so many crap going on, I can't begin to think a few more because there are so many heavy blockbusters and AAA games to name. 

Maria The Virgin Witch, Tales Of The Borderlands, Halo 5, Fargo Season 2, Better Call Saul, Beasts With No Nation, My Love Story, Gintama, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Her Story, hell...even Call Of Duty Black Ops III and Assassin's Creed: Syndicate. All filmmakers, TV Front runners, Game Developers and Anime Creators have all gave it they absolute best and delivered with some of the most memorable moments that won't escape our minds for a very very long time. But only some can be achieve the greatest achievement for overall entertainment and rule the pop culture and mark themselves in history for A.G.Es to come. And when we nominate them? Here's a hint:
