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!

N For Nerds At GamerCon

So Marty and I attended GamerCon in Dublin last weekend, and I have to say, as a major gamer it was one of the best experiences of my life. Now, I know there were some issues surrounding GamerCon, people waiting in line for hours to get in and some people being turned away all together, but I want to set that aside for now and discuss the positive things to come from GamerCon. Such As… The Retro Z...[Read More]

Brilliant!!

Salt and Sanctuary

You know me, I like my beer cold, my TV loud and my video games harder than a priest in a playground, I loved the Dark Souls games, and I adored the lovecraftian horror that was Bloodborne. However it would seem that that love was completely one sided as each of these games beat my ass, and like the degenerate I am, I came crawling back for more. (Thank you sir, may I have another!) Salt and Sanct...[Read More]

Tarik

You may remember some time ago we did a comic book review of Tarik, published by “Back Pocket Comics”. Well it was more of a first impression really as it was only the first issue and it can be difficult to do a full review on just one issue. Anyway, our friends at Back Pocket Comics have written another issue to Tarik, not only that, they have redrawn, edited and coloured the original and made it...[Read More]

Torment: Tides of Numenera

Torment: Tides of Numenera is a classic western role-playing video game, a spiritual successor to the critically acclaimed 1999 game, Planescape: Torment. Tides of Numenera also happens to be a fully crowd funded game, in fact in was completely funded within the first six hours, proving that if nerds want something, they will throw money at it to get it. Now this may be a glowing red spot on my ne...[Read More]

Awesome!!!

Logan

So I have just gotten back from seeing Logan and I am putting it out there right now, this one may actually be the best X-men movie never mind wolverine movie. Now, the movie isn’t in the cinemas at time of writing and I know I would be pissed if someone spoiled any of it for me, so rest assured there will be no spoilers here. Other than it’s awesome. (Fuck Spoilers!) Plot The plot is set in the y...[Read More]

Crap

I Am Setsuna

I have just finished I Am Setsuna and all I can say is thank fuck for that! Never have I wanted a game to come to an end more in my life, in fact I immediately deleted it from my hard drive as soon as I finished it, so intense was my hatred for this arse of a game. Normally I like to over level in an RPG, do all the side quests and things like that, but in this case I rushed through the main story...[Read More]

John Wick: Chapter 2

I was worried after seeing the posters and trailer that John Wick: Chapter 2 would just be a rehash of the original, maybe someone else would steal his car and kill his new dog, I remember saying “if another fucking dog dies” I will walk out. Thankfully the plot is pretty original and does what all good sequels should, builds on the existing universe to tell a new story. The Plot The plot picks up...[Read More]

Another 5 Heartfelt Moments In Video Games

Well the last Top 5 most heartfelt moments did quite well, though we did have some feedback from fans about the selection, and with that in mind here is Another 5 Heartfelt moments in Video Games. (This isn’t lazy, it’s a sequel) 1. The Last of Us – Joel’s Daughter dies The last of us is possibly one of my all-time favourite games, but holy fuck is the beginning of it sad, while most games let you...[Read More]

The Lego Batman Movie

I’ve just gotten back from seeing The Lego Batman movie and I have to say I really enjoyed the movie. As a long time Batman fan and Lego aficionado I was worried that this would be just a quick cash grab in the wake of the unprecedented success of the original Lego movie, but while it did make some nods to its predecessor it remains entirely its own thing. The Plot The plot is the standard Batman ...[Read More]

5 Most Heartfelt Moments In Video Games

Video Games have come under scrutiny quite a bit throughout the years; they’ve been called, stupid, childish, we’ve been told by our parents that they’re a waste of time or that they will rot our brains. These notions however, all stem from the idea that there is nothing to be gained or learned from video games, but honestly, I feel that some of the most heartfelt moments can be found in video gam...[Read More]

Great!

Watch Dogs 2

So I’ve just finished Watch Dogs 2 and I have to say I had a lot of fun with it. Full disclosure I never played the original because quite frankly it looked boring, a drab looking protagonist out for revenge, in a dark and gritty sandbox game? Like we don’t have enough of those. No, what drew me to Watch Dogs 2 was that it was the exact opposite, centred on a fun loving protagonist (Marcus Hollowa...[Read More]

5 most annoying video game characters ever

Video games are the best, you can be a hardened soldier, a great dragon slayer or just a lunatic with a gun and a penchant for vehicular homicide, but every now and again we get a side character who fucks all that up, here are 5 such characters.   Emma Emmerich MGS2: Sons of Liberty While Emma is by no means the worst character, she is still a massive pain in the ass. She drags the plot to a ...[Read More]
