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!

GRIP: Combat Racing

You could be forgiven for thinking that the world of GRIP: Combat Racing is nothing but a post-apocalyptic future where only cars and explosions have survived. But I looked it up and to my surprise there is a story buried somewhere amidst all the vehicular carnage. Something about illegal street racing, black market TV subscriptions and corruption, but we’re not here for story. No, we’re here to r...[Read More]

Great!

8-Bit Armies

Ah the humble RTS, how I’ve missed you. It seems like only yesterday I was whiling away my Saturday nights trying to get past that God damn chopper mission from the first C&C or pouring days at a time into Red Alert 3, good times. But with EA determined to empty their bowels all over the Command & Conquer franchise it seemed that my RTS thirst was to go unquenched, that was until 8-Bit Arm...[Read More]

Brilliant!!

The Predator

To be honest I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I heard about this movie, it seems to be the Hollywood norm at the minute to take an established franchise and either reboot it or make a quasi-sequel. Either way for the most part they aren’t great (cough) Robocop 2014, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Terminator Genisys (cough), you get my point. So believe me when I say I certainly wasn’t expect...[Read More]

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

The response was so great that we decided to split the blog in two. So, four weeks and a shit ton of procrastination later, here is part two of 5 games you’ll want to replay for years to come.   Tekken 3 We humans are a simple species, ever since we discovere...[Read More]

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]
