Resident Evil 7: Biohazard

Like many of the Indie or cancelled horror games of recent years (see Outlast, Amnesia, Silent Hills, SOMA, Penumbra, Layers of Fear, Alison Road etc etc), RE7 has switched to a first person perspective, a move that originally slightly worried me. It seemed like an attempt to take advantage of the cancellation of Silent Hills and given their track record of trying to force Resident Evil in to a st...[Read More]

Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency

Watching Dirk Gently, I found it… Odd. Odd but strangely alluring. Something about the show kept me watching and somehow inspired a sense of nostalgia. Dirk Gently is based on some of Douglas Adams’ (lesser known) work, of the same name but strangely, I felt nostalgia from the first time I read the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Because, unlike the Hitchhiker movie, Dirk Gentl...[Read More]

Dishonored 2

The  main story is pretty strong, it picks up fifteen years after the events of the first game, Emily is now the Empress of the Isles and Corvo is her bodyguard. The Empress is then attacked, some betrayal goes on and either Corvo or Emily has to flee the empire in order to find out who is behind the plot, and regain the throne.  It’s a similar progression to the original, as in its heavily ...[Read More]

Resident Evil: Zero HD Remaster

I still have vague memories of playing the original Resident Evil 1, mostly the memories are just me shitting myself like never before and loving it, kick starting what would blossom in to a love of horror. But Resident Evil Zero, I can still remember playing like it was yesterday, back when it was originally released for the GameCube in 2002. Oh how disgusted I was when I realized that was almost...[Read More]

The Exorcist (TV series)

The  Exorcist TV series is technically more of a sequel to the classic movie rather than a reboot or reimagining and continues the trend of movies being turned into TV shows, 12 Monkeys, Fargo, Hannibal, Bates Motel, Damien (The Omen) and Limitless to name a few. While a lot of these shows turn out well it can be a hit or miss move, as shown by Bad Teacher and School of Rock both having had terrib...[Read More]

Brilliant!!

Westworld

Yep, it’s another sci-fi robotics show. A classic genre that I’m always fond of and hopefully isn’t in danger of over-saturation yet even with the second season of Humans coming in the near future (Season one of which I’ve already reviewed). Westworld is a western show with a sci-fi twist. But it’s not set in space, this time it’s a theme park for the ludicrousl...[Read More]

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Even though this is more of a companion series to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles run, as a #1 issue I had hoped for a nice introduction to the universe, some character building, and some familiar faces. And that’s kind of what I got. But I also got a heavy reliance on the past comics and little to no actual introductions. There’s one section where the endings to a few past arcs are e...[Read More]

King’s Quest Chapter 3: Once Upon A Climb

Right from the start, this episode already seems like it will be better than the second, in the first scene we get a mini puzzle, this one involving time travel, nicely explained away by our framing device of Grandpa telling his stories and forgetting a bit of it. When we get to the present we’re now following a Graham in the prime of his life, again, a few years after the events of the last...[Read More]

South of Hell

In South of Hell, Maria Abascal is a demon hunter for hire. However, like those she hunts she is also possessed by her own demon, Abigail, who eats the evil that is exorcised from others. As Abigail becomes stronger she becomes more dominant and they start to fight for control. Unfortunately as promising as it sounds, South of Hell doesn’t really know what it wants to be and tries too hard t...[Read More]
