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!

Why Persona 5: Royal is worth the asking price

When Persona 5: Royal was first announced I was sceptical, don’t get me wrong, I loved the idea of more Persona 5 and was only too happy to pry open my wallet and pay a little extra for additional content. But my hype train halted in its tracks when I found out that rather than paying an extra £15 or £20 for a DLC pack, I would have to shell out £40 and re-purchase the game. To me it just seemed g...[Read More]

5 Video Games To Get You Through Quarantine

It’s been a difficult few weeks for everybody what with the Corona Virus forcing us all in to an indeterminate Quarantine. But like the eternal optimist that I am (stop laughing) I always try to look on the bright side. Okay, sure we can’t leave our homes to spend time with our loved ones and yes you can’t buy toilet paper to save your life, but at least we have video games! That’s a fair trade of...[Read More]

The 5 Worst Irish Video Game Characters Ever

Tis the season to get wankered! Ah yes St. Patrick’s Day, the day when we proud Irish men and women venerate an agnostic English man who said “Out te fuck ye slithering bastards”! And while most of my country men will mark this occasion by getting rubbered, I choose to celebrate it by twisting it into an excuse to talk about video games. With that said here are 5 of The Worst Irish Video Game Char...[Read More]

Final Fantasy VII: Remake Demo

I haven’t exactly been silent about my concerns for the Final Fantasy VII remake. From the way Square Enix have decided to carve it up so they can sell us one game three times to the new combat system that is completely different from the original, I have made my displeasure known. So when I found out that Square Enix had released a demo I thought this was a perfect way to ease some of my concerns...[Read More]

My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising

I can’t say that I’m a huge anime fan, that’s not to say I dislike all anime. Like most lovers of all things nerd related I tried Dragon Ball Z, but after waiting 3 episodes for one guy to charge up an attack only to miss, I decided it wasn’t for me. Occasionally I will dip my toe back in the waters of anime at the behest of a friend with the assurance that “this one is different from all the othe...[Read More]

Everything Wrong With The Rise of Skywalker: Part 2

This has got to be the first time in my writing career that a film has been so bad that I have been unable to quarantine my displeasure to a scathing review alone. Hell, by writing this two part blog post I have proved that one review and one article isn’t enough. But rest assured after this article The Rise of Skywalker will be safe from me, omitting one or two snarky comments in future reviews o...[Read More]

Everything Wrong With The Rise of Skywalker: Part 1

While my review of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker may be finished, it turns out I have more bile than I know what to do with, except I do know what to do with it, complain on the internet! That’s right, I had so many problems with  this film that for the first time ever I am doing a two part blog post to go along with a review just to hammer home how much of a balls up this film turn out to be. ...[Read More]

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

I’ve been putting off my review of the Rise of Skywalker for two reasons. Firstly I don’t relish the idea of picking a side in the online argument about whether this movie was good or bad (it’s shite btw, but we’ll get to that) and second, if I am going to shit all over a Star Wars film I’d prefer to do it with every weapon in my arsenal, which means spoilers. So consider this your warning, this r...[Read More]

5 Retro Games Still Worth Playing Today

In this mad world of insane world leaders and microtransaction ladened video games sometimes it’s fun (and indeed) necessary to retreat to the comfort of the familiar. And what better way to do that than by playing some classic video games. Now I know what you’re thinking, (and you should be ashamed Francis you sick bastard) but to the rest of you not thinking about pornography, yes it’s true a lo...[Read More]

5 Worst Video Games of 2019

Well you’ve heard Laura’s thoughts on Tetris 99 and how it’s a hidden gem of a game; we’ve had Jude discuss the many games he’s enjoyed throughout the year! And while that’s all well and good I think we can all agree there have been more than a few stinkers. And given that World War III will likely kick off any day now I think we’re all in need of catharsis, a good purge of ill will or to put it i...[Read More]

Top 5 Snow Levels in Video Games

It’s that time of year again folks, a time of over indulgence and frivolity, a time of family and friends. Of course what with an impeachment looming, Brexit being in its 56th year and the death of Peter “Chewbacca” Mayhew, I can understand if you’re not feeling festive. But fret ye not, I have the answer, and would you believe the answer is video games? That’s right, 5 snowy Levels that vaguely f...[Read More]

The Outer Worlds

I was apprehensive about this game right up until the day of purchase. I mean, on the surface it’s everything I want in a game. A story driven RPG that boasts the ability to play it anyway you chose, companion NPCs and a vast Sci-Fi universe to explore, brought to us by Obsidian; a proven talent. But never the less, over the years the AAA video game industry has eroded my trust to the point where ...[Read More]
