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!

Persona 5

I honestly haven’t been looking forward to writing this review because despite having beaten the game once and also already being a third of the way through the new game plus mode, I still don’t know how I feel about it. So I thought we would find out together, I’ll bitch about the game for 700 words or so and at the end we will find out if it’s a great game with a few flaws or a load of old bollo...[Read More]

Mantis Burn Racing DLC

A while ago I reviewed Mantis Burn Racing, a top-down racing game brought to us by VooFoo studios (check that review out here). Since then however, VooFoo Studios has released new DLC for Mantis Burn Racing, “Snowbound Pack” and “Elite Class”, well we were lucky enough to get sent a review code for the new DLC and here’s what we thought. Gameplay The Gameplay remains largely unchanged, it’s still ...[Read More]

5 Most Badass women in video games

For the most part, video games have you play as Johnny Testosterone Mc Big-Bollocks, gun in hand and foot in ass. But every now and again we get to play as, or partner with a kick ass lady. Granted those instances are few and far between, but never the less I have managed to cobble together a list of the 5 most badass women in video games! 5. Lara Croft (Tomb Raider) Well of course we can’t have a...[Read More]

Cosplay: The 10 Commandments

Cosplay I have been meaning to write an article on cosplay for some time now and after our adventures at GamerCon in March I have decided now is the time. While GamerCon wasn’t the first convention I attended as a member of the press, it did give me a better insight into the world of cosplay and the people who enjoy it.  Whether you’re a comic book fan dressing up as their favourite superhero, an ...[Read More]

5 Most awesome Video Games Bosses

5. Bowser “Bowser?”  I hear you scoff, “Bowser, has never won against Mario, in fact he gets beaten every time and even goes go-karting with his enemy”, well that’s where you’re wrong ass monkeys, because he is secretly a genius who manages to destabilise the mushroom kingdom by kidnapping their monarch and throwing there society into chaos, while allowing Bowser’s working class people to thrive. ...[Read More]

Horizon Zero Dawn

Well, I have since finished Horizon Zero Dawn and I absolutely loved it, unfortunately  there  is now a hole in my life were this game used to be, and what’s left to fill it? Mass Effect Andromeda? Eguh, no thank you. No, the least I can do is give this game the tongue bath of a review it deserves. Story Horizon Zero Dawn follows the story of Aloy, a huntress/archer/free-running badass, who, for a...[Read More]

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]

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]

Great!

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]

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]
