Gerard Kennedy

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!

IT

If you have read my review of Outlast or watched any of our Resident Evil 7 Let’s Plays, then you will know that I do not handle horror very well. I mean I love horror but sometimes it’s hard to tell if it loves me back or just wants to skin me and wear me to a barn dance, so obviously I was the perfect choice to attend the preview screening of IT. Derry, 1989, a town with many unresolved missing ...[Read More]

5 Video Games That Saved Their Franchises

  We all have our favourite video game franchises, it will come as no surprise to regular readers that one of my favourites is Final Fantasy. And just as Square Enix proved with Final Fantasy, just because a franchise is good doesn’t mean it will stay that way, so every now and then, games must take a car battery to the bollocks in order to bring some colour back to their cheeks, so with that...[Read More]

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice

I finished playing Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice last night and I sat watching the credits, taking it all in, the story, the characters and the gameplay and all I could think was “Wow”. There aren’t many games that can leave me speechless (mainly because I won’t shut up), but this one did, so let’s get on with the review so I can get back to it and earn the platinum trophy (I’m only one away!...[Read More]

Meh

Atomic Blonde

I remember watching the trailer for Atomic Blonde and thinking “man, this movie is going to be great, Charlize Theron was awesome in Mad Max, and now she’s a kick ass spy!”, but little did I know, that the trailer was the best the movie had to offer. Okay I’m being hyperbolic, but beyond a few good action scenes and a car chase there really wasn’t much of a film here, “fur coat and no knickersR...[Read More]

Final Fantasy XII: Zodiac Age

I found myself in the pro camp when I heard about Final Fantasy XII: Zodiac Age, I had always liked the original as a kid and was eager to devote days of my life to it all over again as an adult, ready to grind enemies, beat hidden bosses and get lost in the well written story…..I said, get lost in the well written story….guys? Plot The plot of Final Fantasy XII takes place in the fictional land o...[Read More]

Dark Souls – The Vinyl Trilogy

Rejoice fellow nerds for it is here, the perfect gift for that one friend you have who happens to fall within the Venn diagram of loves Dark Souls, collects vinyl and loves to listen to music that reminds him/her of the time they fucked their controller at a loved one, because Ornstein and Smough kicked their ass for the 30th time. Yes, it’s the complete Dark Souls, Dark Souls II and Dark Souls II...[Read More]

5 Reasons Why Nintendo Is The Worst

We all have our favourite gaming platforms PlayStation, Xbox, PC and for others there is Nintendo. We all have our reasons for selecting our favourites, I personally love PlayStation because of fond childhood memories of playing Final Fantasy VII while off school pretending to be sick (that’s right mother, all a ruse!), others say they pick the console with the best exclusives or whichever their f...[Read More]

Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom Delayed

So, it looks like it’s bad news for fans of Ni no Kuni, not to mention JRPG fans in general as it was revealed today that Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom will be postponed until 19th January 2018. While I’m sure this will disappoint some fans, they can take comfort in the fact that, according to Akihiro Hino (CEO and President of LEVEL-5 Inc), more development time is required in order to deliver ...[Read More]

5 Top LGBT Characters in Video Games

What with gay pride just around the corner and me being the unimaginative bastard that I am, I thought now would be a good time to look at some of the best LGBT characters in video games. Now, it would be very easy just to name all the LGBT characters from Bioware games for this blog post, hell, even if I was restricted to the Dragon age games I could fill this list and knock off early for lunch, ...[Read More]

Power Rangers

When I first heard there would be a new Power Rangers movie based on the original characters, with the original story and the original Dino Zords I passed out because all the blood needed to remain conscious had rushed to my pants. Then came the first glimpse of the costumes and everything became underwhelming and flaccid, but I decided I would give it a chance because it’s still Power Rangers dam...[Read More]

5 Reasons Superman is The Greatest Hero

I take a lot of crap for how much I love Superman, from friends, family, co-workers and that priest I got into a fist fight with because he wouldn’t admit that “Comet” (the time traveling super horse) was awesome! But it’s just that they don’t understand how truly awesome he is, and since I have a website and an ego problem I am going to gush about “The Man of Tomorrow” for a while. Here are 5 rea...[Read More]

5 Comic Book Heroes Who Aren’t Heroes At All

There are some Comic Book Superheroes that are so clean cut, good and pure that it would make your teeth itch. Your Captain Americas, your Spidermans and of course the big blue boy scout, Superman. Then you have your darker heroes that do questionable things in the name of good, like Batman or Punisher, but then you have the others. So called Superheroes that are as far from heroes that they are s...[Read More]
