Retro Review: Scooby-Doo & The Cyber Chase{Playstation}

Released almost 13 years ago, I have fond memories of playing this for hours on end…I also have not so fond memories of anger and frustration from playing this for hours on end.

CyberChase_ps1

For what it was and for what it’s worth, for the past thirteen years I have consistently polished and placed this game on a pedestal and called it the best Scooby-Doo console game we’ve ever gotten. And in many ways, I still stand by that sentiment. From a very unfair and slanted view, it could be called one of the worst, mostly because it has no mystery solving elements.
But, again, based on what it is, that wouldn’t have made sense so it gets a pass.

I think it’s safe to say I loved this movie. I think my biggest peeve with the previous few movies is that they were not spooky enough{which is how I like my Scooby}. Frankencreepy, with it’s Frankenstien-inspired plot, makes up for that. The gang being “cursed” was fun. Fred being obsessed with the Mystery Machine blowing up got old real fast, but I liked that the explosion got worse each time. Now there has been some controversy over Daphne getting fat. The whole thing is overblown in my opinion. In fact, Fred says something along the lines of he doesn’t care what Daphne looks like. So wouldn’t that be sending a positive message that it doesn’t matter what you look like? I certainly don’t think it was fat shaming.

Retro Review: Hanna-Barbera Scooby-Doo…Where Are You! #13

Hanna-Barbera Scooby-Doo…Where Are You! #13 Review

This is by far the oldest comic I own, not to mention my oldest piece of Scooby merchandise. This is pretty cool for me, but! …is it any good?

ScoobyDoo_GoldKey

The Cover: Yikes! This cover is all over the place!
I guess the Scooby-Doo logo we all know, or even something close to it, hadn’t been established by 1972? The characters look pretty close to how they did in the original series, so that’s good. The background is pretty damn bland and uninteresting. Plain color and a shadow aren’t very eye catching. But overall for a comic based on a Saturday Morning Cartoon in the early 70′s I can’t complain to much.

Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #5 Review

TeamUp_5 (1) Story: Trouble in Paradise Writer: Sholly Fisch Artist: Dario Brizuela Plot: Wonder Woman invites Velma and Daphne to Paradise Island to solve a series of monster attacks where the a mythological creature attacks and then disappears without a trace. Teamup5_1

Okay, so I’m probably just being nitpicky since I did enjoy this issue, but I was slightly disappointed that Daphne and Velma would be the main focus of the book…which they were. But when I started reading this issue, I was half hoping it would be mostly Daphne, Velma, and Scooby and that Fred and Shaggy would have a small role to play. Alas they did find a way to bring the guys into the story. That’s not a bad thing, mind you. There are some nice moments with Shaggy driving Wonder Woman’s invisible jet. But since this is a Wonder Woman team-up, I just wanted to see some more girl power.

Is KISS Making Another Appearance On Scooby-Doo?

If you remember the halloween special from What’s New Scooby-Doo, rock band KISS made a cameo appearance in that episode. Now it appears KISS will be teaming up with Scooby & the gang once more. Mindy Cohn tweeted this on May 31st:

This could very well be Freak Out Scooby-Doo!, one of the DTVs coming in 2015{though the title comes from IMDB, so take that with a grain of salt}. This would also seem to indicate that it will be Rock & Roll themed, depending on how big a role they have in the movie.
