Typical nerd. Love comic books, video games and movies. My all-time favourite video games are the Final Fantasy series, my favourite Superhero is Superman but I prefer Marvel Comics. Controversial? I don't care!

My Hero Academia: Why Mineta Being Gay Would Be A Good Thing

As you may or may not have heard, depending on your awareness of manga/anime, there was a bit of a surprising “coming out” for a rather loathed character in a popular Manga and anime series called “My Hero Academia”. Regular readers will know of my fondness for this particular franchise, being one of the few animes that I follow religiously, and the fewer still of which I have read the manga for, ...[Read More]

5 Power Ranger Knock-offs You Forgot Existed

Like any self-respecting child of the 90’s I loved The “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers”, perhaps it was their incorruptible spirit, their unshakeable friendship, or maybe it was the fact that they got awesome colour coordinated-dinosaur themed mechs…. It was probably that last one. But like anything popular it wasn’t long before the imitators started pouring in. Some were better than others, I was p...[Read More]

F**K Activision-Blizzard

It’s been a difficult couple of years recently, a worldwide pandemic, the attempted destruction of western democracy, the shocking increase in stupid fucking idiots who, not only don’t believe in vaccines, but who now have decided that modern idiocy isn’t enough! NO! Now they have hurtled back in time a few centuries and have now decided that the earth is fucking flat! And the cherry on this shit ...[Read More]

Okay

King of Seas

I don’t normally play procedurally generate games as a rule, to be honest I find them a bit pointless and repetitive, the slog of replaying basically the same handful of missions over and over bores me. And I know that’s like saying “I don’t often drink orange juice because I hate the way it only tastes of orange” but it’s true. But when I read through the press material for “King of Seas” I was i...[Read More]

Justice League: The Snyder Cut

I can remember when all this “Snyder Cut” business first started, it wasn’t long after the Joss Whedon’s version had hit theatres that phrases like “Release the Snyder Cut” began echoing within forums across the internet. And all I can remember thinking was “Why the fuck would anybody want that?”, it was as if the whole world collectively forgot how badly he had fucked up “Man of Steel” and ...[Read More]

Resident Evil: Village – First Look

Well the Resident Evil Showcase has been and gone, and all I can say is “WoW”. I think most of us that tuned in were there for one reason, Resident Evil: Village. Capcom revealed key insights regarding the eagerly anticipated survival horror sequel, chief among them, that, yes, it is a continuation of Ethan’s story. But while it is picking up from where we left off in RESIDENT EVIL: 7, RESIDENT EV...[Read More]

5 Video Games We’re Supposed To Love But Just Don’t

We all have a video game (or two) that we absolutely love despite the general consensus that they are less than stellar! For me it’s the Fable series, while it has its fans, the majority’s opinion seems to be that they are a shallow experience not worth revisiting.  But bollocks to that! I love to run around in my pants twatting people with a frying pan….in Fable of course, I was found innocent at...[Read More]

5 Of The Best Souls-Borne Bosses

I haven’t always been a fan of the Souls-Borne games, in fact the first time I played one (Dark Souls 1) I bounced right off it. Maybe it was the way the game introduced combat, maybe it was the controls or (and I think this is the main reason) it’s because I took a right and ended up in skeletal buggery hell. As it turns out, this area was a late game area and I was supposed to go left, but after...[Read More]

We Need More Heterosexual Male Platonic Love

I have been meaning to discuss this topic for a while now. Ever since I saw a relationship between two characters in season four of My Hero Academia and the subsequent reaction the internet had to it, but more on that later. Fortunately for me, yet unfortunately for society as a whole, this is an ever green topic, but after watching the latest episode of “Supernatural” and seeing a certain scene (...[Read More]

Horrendous

The Suicide of Rachel Foster

I don’t often play “Walking Simulator” games, more accurately, I don’t complete many “Walking Simulators”, I have, in fact, started dozens, it’s just the majority of them  don’t really do anything to maintain my interest. Over the years there have been two exceptions, “Gone Home” and “Journey” but now that I have completed “The Suicide of Rachel Foster” I can proudly say…there are still only two. ...[Read More]

Awesome!!!

Eastern Exorcist

2020 has been a pretty shit year all round, racial tension in America, Donald Trump as President of America…well, just America in general really, the coronavirus wreaking havoc on the world and to top it all off the video games have been a bit of a let-down. I had all but resigned myself to the fact that I would just have to wait until November when Cyberpunk 2077 comes out (and it better come out...[Read More]
