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!

5 Great Movies Based On Video Games

Try as they might those Hollywood guys just can’t get this whole “Video Game Movie” thing right, well that’s only if you’re one of those people that doesn’t know how to have fun. While it’s true there hasn’t been a video game movie that’s Oscar worthy, that doesn’t mean they’re all terrible. Don’t get me wrong, most of them are complete garbage, but every now and then one will come along that exce...[Read More]

5 Times Superman Has Killed

I was re-watching Man of Steel recently with a friend and he asked me if, as a huge Superman fan, it bothered me that they had him kill in his latest incarnation. And like the insane nerd I am I took this opportunity to unleash all the pent up Superman knowledge I had upon this poor misguided soul, for you see, Superman has and does kill. While he absolutely abhors killing, he is not so arrogant t...[Read More]

Vampyr

I have to admit, it’s been a while since a review has given me this much trouble. Normally I find it pretty straight forward, game good here’s why, or game bad insert self-important wankey rant here. But in Vampyr’s case it’s hard to give a simple yay or nay, so why don’t I just put it all down on digital paper and by the end, hopefully, we’ll have our answer. Set in London in the year 1918 in the...[Read More]

Sony E3 2018

  Well E3 is winding down and the major Consoles have all had their day in the sun and we gamers now know what we have to look forward to for the next few years, or perhaps longer if Square-Enix decide to push back Kingdom Hearts 3….again. In any case, Sony have showed us what they have instore for us and for the most part it’s a host of great games, and whatever that thing Hideo Kojima is ma...[Read More]

5 Games You’ll Want to Replay For Years To Come – Part 2

Brilliant!!

God of War

You would have a hard time convincing people that the way Kratos goes about things in the previous God of War games resembles anything close to reasonable. But I got the feeling, we weren’t meant to take him seriously and simply enjoy the cathartic violence. So, when this new God of War sauntered onto our screens with a new family and a more reserved attitude I was somewhat puzzled. You’ve killed ...[Read More]

Awesome!!!

Avengers: Infinity War

The original plan was to review Avengers Infinity War as soon as I’d seen it, but that was before I was bombarded with emotions. Having seen it twice since then, I now feel like I can write a review without bursting into tears at the thought of having to wait a whole fucking year for the sequel! Avengers Infinity War is set not long after the events of Thor: Ragnarok, and it would appear that inte...[Read More]

Into the Unknown: Part 3 Apocalypse Chow

In our last entry we left our heroes on the ragged edge of an ever-closing zone 4, now we return to the action, with each passing moment the odds stack higher, and not in Shannon or Kevin’s favour. After composing our-selves and proceeding into zone five, I am left with this sinking feeling that we are nearing the end of our long journey.  Consulting the map brings little joy, even collecting supp...[Read More]

5 Games You’ll Want to Replay For Years To Come

We asked you, the readers, to participate in this blog post because we wanted to know what games you enjoy playing. And also, because I am a monumentally lazy person, and this means less work for me. Well the response has been great, so great in fact that I’m going to have to split this one in to two parts, so don’t worry if you don’t see your game mentioned this time around. Here are 5 games you’...[Read More]

Resident Evil: HD Remastered

I have been pouring over my list of video games, agonising over what to play and, God willing, review. I could play Far Cry 5 or I could wander around a mostly empty field, punching myself in the bollocks, achieving largely the same experience. But then I thought, “stuff my reviewer integrity, I’m going to review Resident Evil, one of my all-time favourite games and arses to anyone who objects!”. ...[Read More]

5 Video Games That Almost Destroyed Their Franchises

We’ve talked in a previous list about games that have saved their respective franchises, but what about when the opposite happens? What if a video game is such an awful pile of fucked shite that to even associate them with their predecessors would be like pissing in the face of Santa Claus while clumsily attempting to flirt with Mrs Claus. Well for starters, you’ll end up in a blog post written by...[Read More]

Great!

Ready Player One

I may take a hit by admitting this, but I have never actually read the novel Ready Player One, I know I know, it’s a huge glowing red weak spot on my geek cred. But it also puts me in a unique position as someone who loves the subject matter but won’t be comparing it to the book. For better or worse, that affords me the opportunity to review Ready Player One as a movie rather than a movie adaptati...[Read More]
