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!

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]

5 Most Badass Women in Video Games Part 2

Today is International Women’s Day, and you know what that means, that’s right, it means I don’t have to come up with an idea for a blog post. But for those of you who aren’t too lazy to do their jobs, International Women’s Day is a day for the celebration of women and all their accomplishments and contributions to the world. But who cares about Margaret Hamilton, the woman who wrote t...[Read More]

Shadow of The Colossus HD

I was a massive fan of the original Shadow of The Colossus when it first debuted on PlayStation 2, I have fond memories of performing lizard genocide to improve my grip meter, all so I could scale a massive monster and stab him up the urethra. So, when the PS4 version was announced I was overjoyed that I would get to return to that world and kill sentient mountains, while they try to shake off the...[Read More]

5 Worst Video Game Betrayals

Video Games have a great knack for tugging at your heart strings, they are fictional worlds that we spend hours exploring, saving, and are filled with awesome characters that we develop bonds with. And it is because of that fondness that we feel all the more betrayed when one of the back-stabbing buggers turns around and fucks us over, maybe it’s for money, maybe it’s for power or maybe it’s becau...[Read More]

Awesome!!!

Black Panther

Long live the King, well, not the last king he died in an explosion, but the new King T’Challa aka The Black Panther, in his first of what I hope will be many standalone movies. I may have given my opinion away a little prematurely, but rest assured I have more gushing to do. Set immediately after the events of Civil War, T’Challa aka The Black Panther aka the richest mother fucker on ...[Read More]

5 of The Weirdest Video Game Romances Ever

Ah Valentines Day, a day where we celebrate the violent death of the patron saint of beekeepers, plagues and epilepsy…oh and love too, I guess. Yes, love is in the air, birds are singing, the sun is shining and it’s only a day away from discount chocolate, the real reason we all love Valentines Day, but while we wait for that delicious day to arrive I suppose we better acknowledge romance. But eve...[Read More]
