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 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]

Brilliant!!

Mantis Burn Racing: Battle Cars DLC

The fine folks over at VooFoo Studios are back with another round of DLC for their awesome racing game Mantis Burn Racing. But this time it seems their no longer content with new racing tracks and new vehicles, no this time they’ve decided they want to strap machine guns and mines to armoured cars and have players fight for victory, Mad Max style. Battle Cars is the brand-new combat racing DLC pac...[Read More]

Great!

Kingsman 2: The Golden Circle

Spy movies have never really been my thing, I watched the odd James Bond movie but never really got into them, something about them just made me switch off, I think it’s because they try so hard to be taken seriously, when their subject matter is so ridiculous. Not Kingsman though, it knows it’s premise is insane and it will happily revel in that fact. The plot of Kingsman 2 is set roughly a year ...[Read More]

Awesome!!!

IT

If you have read my review of Outlast or watched any of our Resident Evil 7 Let’s Plays, then you will know that I do not handle horror very well. I mean I love horror but sometimes it’s hard to tell if it loves me back or just wants to skin me and wear me to a barn dance, so obviously I was the perfect choice to attend the preview screening of IT. Derry, 1989, a town with many unresolved missing ...[Read More]

5 Video Games That Saved Their Franchises

  We all have our favourite video game franchises, it will come as no surprise to regular readers that one of my favourites is Final Fantasy. And just as Square Enix proved with Final Fantasy, just because a franchise is good doesn’t mean it will stay that way, so every now and then, games must take a car battery to the bollocks in order to bring some colour back to their cheeks, so with that...[Read More]

Awesome!!!

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice

I finished playing Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice last night and I sat watching the credits, taking it all in, the story, the characters and the gameplay and all I could think was “Wow”. There aren’t many games that can leave me speechless (mainly because I won’t shut up), but this one did, so let’s get on with the review so I can get back to it and earn the platinum trophy (I’m only one away!...[Read More]

Meh

Atomic Blonde

I remember watching the trailer for Atomic Blonde and thinking “man, this movie is going to be great, Charlize Theron was awesome in Mad Max, and now she’s a kick ass spy!”, but little did I know, that the trailer was the best the movie had to offer. Okay I’m being hyperbolic, but beyond a few good action scenes and a car chase there really wasn’t much of a film here, “fur coat and no knickersR...[Read More]

Good

Final Fantasy XII: Zodiac Age

I found myself in the pro camp when I heard about Final Fantasy XII: Zodiac Age, I had always liked the original as a kid and was eager to devote days of my life to it all over again as an adult, ready to grind enemies, beat hidden bosses and get lost in the well written story…..I said, get lost in the well written story….guys? Plot The plot of Final Fantasy XII takes place in the fictional land o...[Read More]

Dark Souls – The Vinyl Trilogy

Rejoice fellow nerds for it is here, the perfect gift for that one friend you have who happens to fall within the Venn diagram of loves Dark Souls, collects vinyl and loves to listen to music that reminds him/her of the time they fucked their controller at a loved one, because Ornstein and Smough kicked their ass for the 30th time. Yes, it’s the complete Dark Souls, Dark Souls II and Dark Souls II...[Read More]
