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!

Brilliant!!

South Park: Fractured But Whole

This is a game I have been looking forward to for a long time, because I had such a great time with The Stick of Truth, probably one of the last comedy games that actually made me laugh. But my excitement came with a caveat as it’s been some time since I’ve watched and enjoyed the South Park TV Show and I was afraid I would end up having to endure that Mr. Garrison as Trump shite. As it turns out ...[Read More]

5 Video Game Bad Guys Who Weren’t That Bad

When a video game hands you a sword, a gun, or magical powers and points you in the vague direction of a nebulous foe, it’s usually a safe bet that they are the bad guy. But on rare occasions it turns out that they’re not 100% the villain of the story or maybe they’re just making tough decisions to fight a greater threat, so with that in mind here are five video game bad guys that turned out to be...[Read More]

Great!

Justice League

It’s finally here, after years of waiting and many nights spent chanting “please don’t suck” in front of my Superman shrine (not a creepy shrine, it’s very tasteful), the Justice League movie is here, and it would seem that all that time spent praying has paid off, because it doesn’t suck, in fact it’s awesome. Yes, while he may have been late to the game it seems that Joss Whedon is the Rumpelsti...[Read More]

5 Times Batman Has Killed

Ask any comic book fan to name something that makes Batman stand out from the cape and cowl crowd, and they will likely reply with something about his ability to complete his mission without resorting to taking a life. In fact, this principal is so ingrained in the minds of most comic book fans that it’s one of the many reasons Dawn of Justice got such a poor reception, but, dear nerds, Batman has...[Read More]

Horrendous

Batman and Harley Quinn

It’s no secret that DC are pretty, let’s be diplomatic and say hit & miss, with their movies, Wonder Woman of course kicked ass, Man of Steel was merely okay, and the less said about Dawn of Justice the better. However, this has never been an issue for most fans of DC because despite the lack lustre big screen adaptations we always had the animated movies and TV shows to fall back on, that was...[Read More]

The Five Worst Things The Joker Has Ever Done

As I have mentioned before, Superman is my all-time favourite superhero, he is the quintessential superhero, strong, inspiring and unwavering in his moral code, so it may surprise you to learn that my favourite supervillain is not Lex Luthor. Don’t get me wrong Lex Luthor is an awesome villain but he doesn’t really epitomise the word supervillain for me, no, for my money if you want an example of ...[Read More]

Brilliant!!

Thor: Ragnarok

Well, the god of thunder is back, sporting a new hairdo and sans his magic hammer, so now Thor must discover what he is without it, his “journey through the desert” if you will. You may be thinking this sounds like the first movie, where he lost Mjolnir and journeyed through an actual desert, but trust me it’s very different. The plot of Thor: Ragnarok is set roughly two years after “The Battle of...[Read More]

Superman’s 5 Weirdest Powers

Regular readers will, by now, have realised that I am a massive Superman fan, he is my favourite superhero and I love him in all his incarnations, well, except for Superman 64, but we don’t talk about Superman 64. But just because he’s my favourite doesn’t mean I won’t rip on him for having stupid powers and no, I’m not just talking about super speed reading, here are Superman’s 5 weirdest powers....[Read More]

5 Video Game Sequels That Surpassed The Original: Part 2

Who doesn’t love a good sequel, it is a chance to continue a good story, expand a universe or in the case of this article, an excuse to do as little work as possible. Regular readers (and those who understand what “Part 2” means) will know that this article is in fact a sequel itself, but will it surpass the original or simply be proof that I am too lazy to come up with a new idea. With that said,...[Read More]

Make A Wish

With all the terrible things that seem to be happening around the world today, war, mass shootings and Donald Trump, it would be easy to become jaded and cynical. But every now and then good things do happen, like the Make-A-Wish foundation, they have been granting the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions for years, not for personal or financial gain, but to bring sick child...[Read More]

5 Video Game Bosses We Didn’t Want to Kill

What video game is complete without a great villain, they drive us to become better at games so that when the time comes we can shove a broad sword right up their arse, all the way up to the hilt! But every once in a while, a video game villain will come along that we don’t want to kill, perhaps because they’re just too awesome or maybe because deep down they maybe, just maybe they weren’t s...[Read More]

Meh

Injustice 2

Dear me, it has been a while since I have made a game don the assless shame chaps and assume the position, so I would like to say thank you to Injustice 2 for that at least. Yes, never let it be said that Warner Bros. games won’t take a fun concept, make it dress like a horse, ride said horse until it’s dead and then proceed to beat it until it stops spewing money from every orifice.  Well that pr...[Read More]
