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!

John Wick: Chapter 2

I was worried after seeing the posters and trailer that John Wick: Chapter 2 would just be a rehash of the original, maybe someone else would steal his car and kill his new dog, I remember saying “if another fucking dog dies” I will walk out. Thankfully the plot is pretty original and does what all good sequels should, builds on the existing universe to tell a new story. The Plot The plot picks up...[Read More]

Another 5 Heartfelt Moments In Video Games

(This isn’t lazy, it’s a sequel) 1. The Last of Us – Joel’s Daughter dies The last of us is possibly one of my all-time favourite games, but holy fuck is the beginning of it sad, while most games let you...[Read More]

The Lego Batman Movie

I’ve just gotten back from seeing The Lego Batman movie and I have to say I really enjoyed the movie. As a long time Batman fan and Lego aficionado I was worried that this would be just a quick cash grab in the wake of the unprecedented success of the original Lego movie, but while it did make some nods to its predecessor it remains entirely its own thing. The Plot The plot is the standard Batman ...[Read More]

5 Most Heartfelt Moments In Video Games

Video Games have come under scrutiny quite a bit throughout the years; they’ve been called, stupid, childish, we’ve been told by our parents that they’re a waste of time or that they will rot our brains. These notions however, all stem from the idea that there is nothing to be gained or learned from video games, but honestly, I feel that some of the most heartfelt moments can be found in video gam...[Read More]

Great!

Watch Dogs 2

So I’ve just finished Watch Dogs 2 and I have to say I had a lot of fun with it. Full disclosure I never played the original because quite frankly it looked boring, a drab looking protagonist out for revenge, in a dark and gritty sandbox game? Like we don’t have enough of those. No, what drew me to Watch Dogs 2 was that it was the exact opposite, centred on a fun loving protagonist (Marcus Hollowa...[Read More]

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]

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]
