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!

Awesome!!!

Black Panther

Long live the King, well, not the last king he died in an explosion, but the new King T’Challa aka The Black Panther, in his first of what I hope will be many standalone movies. I may have given my opinion away a little prematurely, but rest assured I have more gushing to do. Set immediately after the events of Civil War, T’Challa aka The Black Panther aka the richest mother fucker on ...[Read More]

5 of The Weirdest Video Game Romances Ever

Ah Valentines Day, a day where we celebrate the violent death of the patron saint of beekeepers, plagues and epilepsy…oh and love too, I guess. Yes, love is in the air, birds are singing, the sun is shining and it’s only a day away from discount chocolate, the real reason we all love Valentines Day, but while we wait for that delicious day to arrive I suppose we better acknowledge romance.

5 Times Cutscenes Screwed Us Over

Video games are great, you get to make believe that you’re a charming roguish adventurer like Nathan Drake from Uncharted, a badass archer/warrior Like Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn, or a powerful wizard from any number of RPGs. Playing as anyone of these badass characters makes us feel just as badass, but sometimes, video games decide that we’ve had enough of being awesome and that we need to be ta...[Read More]

5 Video Game Characters We Loved Killing

If you haven’t yet worked it out, I love video games, mostly because I get to hit stuff with a sword and shoot stuff with a gun, but also because they’re a great way to tell a story, and they happen to have some of the greatest fictional characters ever. Video game characters can be strong and brave, quiet and reserved, or so infuriating to be around that you can’t help but devise painful, yet ela...[Read More]

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]

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.

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]
