5 Worst Video Game Endings

What is a Video Game without a good story? Well…it’s a video game with a crap story but shut up I’m trying to make a point here, that point being, that a great story is only as good as it’s ending. So, when a game comes along with an ending so bad that it pretty much ruins the entire game we of course should take to the internet and complain, with that in mind here are 5 of the Worst video g...[Read More]

Great!

Darkest Hour

Darkest Hour is set in the beginning of World War 2, the Nazis are in the process of conquering Europe and things are looking bleak for the allies. Luckily, they have a secret weapon, a drunken, elderly secret weapon who yells at women and scolds Kings, yes, it’s Winston Churchill to the rescue, a man with a wit so sharp you could use it to cut the tension he causes by speaking. The story begins w...[Read More]

5 Video Games To Get Excited For In 2018

2017 may have been a shit year for politics and world affairs, but at least we had some kick ass video games to play while the world around us was going to hell, let it never be said that I can’t find the silver lining in the ever-looming apocalypse.  But can 2018 deliver the same level of excellence or would we all be better off with Trump hitting the button a few months early, so we don’t have t...[Read More]

Top 5 Video Games of 2017

Well it’s getting to that time of year again, Christmas has ended, and we’ve eaten and drank so much that we hate ourselves enough to make vain resolutions about self-improvement that we have no intention of keeping. But it is also the time when us video game bloggers, who think people give a shit about our opinion, make lists of our favourite yearly games. And I, being the loud mouth tosser that ...[Read More]

5 Best Video Games For PS1

We all had our favourite gaming consoles growing up, N64, any of the Sega systems and of course Atari (for some reason). But for my money, or should I say my parent’s money, you couldn’t beat the original PlayStation, it had it all, amazing 3D graphics, a CD player so you could listen to your Spice Girls CD’s and to top it off, it had the best library of video games of that generation. Dozens of g...[Read More]

Brilliant!!

South Park: Fractured But Whole

This is a game I have been looking forward to for a long time, because I had such a great time with The Stick of Truth, probably one of the last comedy games that actually made me laugh. But my excitement came with a caveat as it’s been some time since I’ve watched and enjoyed the South Park TV Show and I was afraid I would end up having to endure that Mr. Garrison as Trump shite. As it turns out ...[Read More]

5 Video Game Bad Guys Who Weren’t That Bad

When a video game hands you a sword, a gun, or magical powers and points you in the vague direction of a nebulous foe, it’s usually a safe bet that they are the bad guy. But on rare occasions it turns out that they’re not 100% the villain of the story or maybe they’re just making tough decisions to fight a greater threat, so with that in mind here are five video game bad guys that turned out to be...[Read More]

Great!

Justice League

It’s finally here, after years of waiting and many nights spent chanting “please don’t suck” in front of my Superman shrine (not a creepy shrine, it’s very tasteful), the Justice League movie is here, and it would seem that all that time spent praying has paid off, because it doesn’t suck, in fact it’s awesome. Yes, while he may have been late to the game it seems that Joss Whedon is the Rumpelsti...[Read More]

5 Times Batman Has Killed

Ask any comic book fan to name something that makes Batman stand out from the cape and cowl crowd, and they will likely reply with something about his ability to complete his mission without resorting to taking a life. In fact, this principal is so ingrained in the minds of most comic book fans that it’s one of the many reasons Dawn of Justice got such a poor reception, but, dear nerds, Batman has...[Read More]

Horrendous

Batman and Harley Quinn

It’s no secret that DC are pretty, let’s be diplomatic and say hit & miss, with their movies, Wonder Woman of course kicked ass, Man of Steel was merely okay, and the less said about Dawn of Justice the better. However, this has never been an issue for most fans of DC because despite the lack lustre big screen adaptations we always had the animated movies and TV shows to fall back on, that was...[Read More]

The Five Worst Things The Joker Has Ever Done

As I have mentioned before, Superman is my all-time favourite superhero, he is the quintessential superhero, strong, inspiring and unwavering in his moral code, so it may surprise you to learn that my favourite supervillain is not Lex Luthor. Don’t get me wrong Lex Luthor is an awesome villain but he doesn’t really epitomise the word supervillain for me, no, for my money if you want an example of ...[Read More]

Brilliant!!

Thor: Ragnarok

Well, the god of thunder is back, sporting a new hairdo and sans his magic hammer, so now Thor must discover what he is without it, his “journey through the desert” if you will. You may be thinking this sounds like the first movie, where he lost Mjolnir and journeyed through an actual desert, but trust me it’s very different. The plot of Thor: Ragnarok is set roughly two years after “The Battle of...[Read More]
