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!

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]

Final Fantasy XV

So we have had our first taste of what Square Enix has in store for us on the current gen systems (Final Fantasy wise I mean) and I have to say I am pretty impressed, and I do not say that lightly because quite frankly I was not at all impressed by what I was seeing in the years leading up to this games release. To me it looked like four, identically dressed guys in a car, it didn’t have that spar...[Read More]

Brilliant!!

Persona 4 Golden

Persona 4 Golden is a Japanese role-playing game, and it happens to be one of the most engrossing games I have played in a long time. It’s a great story that surrounds fascinating characters, a combat system and an interesting time mechanic that adds a sense of urgency to proceedings. It also deals with some of the most complex issues in a video game that I’ve ever come across. Plot You play as a ...[Read More]

Meh

Star Wars Rogue One

This will probably be one of the more controversial reviews we’ve done in a while, I feel I need to explain just how big a fan of Star Wars I am. I am a huge Star Wars nerd; I love all the movies, the video games, the comics and the novels, hell I even enjoyed the prequel trilogy. So I hope that lets you know how bad this movie had to suck in order for me to dislike it. Plot The plot of Rogue One ...[Read More]

5 Video Games Bosses Who Kicked Our Asses First Time

Video game bosses are meant to be a test of skill, a test of all we have learnt in the game up to that point, but there are of course certain bosses who blindside us with their bastard hard difficulty that no non-Japanese person could have been prepared for first time around. 1. Seymour Guado (Mt. Gagazet) FFX Seymour was already a cock smuggler in my book before he pulled this bullshit, he had ki...[Read More]

Okay

Super Dungeon Bros

So I got my review code for Super Dungeon bros last week and I have to admit so far I have been under whelmed. I had a few issues with it when I first starting playing but once I got past the first few problems, I was hit in the face with more. Gameplay The gameplay in Super Dungeon Bros is pretty straight forward, you progress through a dungeon defeating enemies, and with each level you clear it ...[Read More]

Great!

Harmonquest

To anyone who has never played Dungeons and Dragons, watching a bunch of people essentially sitting at a table playing D&D might sound like one of the most boring things ever and anyone that has played it would probably agree. But HarmonQuest is much more entertaining than you’d think. Each episode is an hour-long session that has been cut down to 20-minutes, this heavy editing, some railroadi...[Read More]

PS Vita

So I recently bought a PS Vita slim, Sony’s current handheld gaming console, and I gotta say it is fast becoming my favourite system to game on. I’ve spoken to a few friends about how I’m loving it, but they all say they’ve never used one or they didn’t think it would be worth buying, but let me tell you, it is. So here are my 5 reasons why it’s worth owing a PS vita. (1) Raw gaming power The PS V...[Read More]

Great!

The Accountant

So I just got back from the press screening for The Accountant, and I have to say, that I was blown away by this film. I hadn’t heard much about it, hell; I didn’t even watch the trailer, so I didn’t know what to expect from it, I will however say I know what I didn’t expect. I did not expect Maths Batman. Plot So the plot surrounds Christian Wolff (played by Ben Affleck), who is a forensic accoun...[Read More]

Final Fantasy VII

So, with news of Final Fantasy VII finally getting a remake, I felt it was time to dust off the PlayStation One, dig out my old copy and replay it for the 20th time. But then I thought to myself, “bollocks to that, it’s the future!”, so I downloaded to my PSP, so I could play it on the go and quite frankly, it hasn’t been out of my hands. You see Final Fantasy games require a lot of your time, (we...[Read More]

Dr Strange

Dr Strange is Marvels latest block Buster, now; I freely admit that there is a gap in my Nerd Knowledge when it comes to the “Sorcerer Supreme”. I’m not completely unfamiliar with him, while I haven’t read any of the comics he stars in, I did see the 2007 animated movie, which I really enjoyed. On the bright side, this does allow me to review the movie as John Everyman. Without the bias that being...[Read More]
