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!

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]

Wonder Woman

As you all may have guessed (given the fact I co-founded a website dedicated to all things nerdy) I love comic books, especially superhero comics. As a former fat, ginger nerd who attended an all-boys catholic high school, I received my fair share of ass kicking’s from the “cool kids” and thus took solace in comics, there’s something comforting about picturing yourself as Batman, and beating the p...[Read More]

5 Video Game Sequels That Surpassed The Original

For the most part sequels are nothing more than hastily knocked together shite, made so that developers can make enough money to fill their golden yachts with so much cocaine that it would bring down Amy Winehouse’s Ghost. But every now and then the planets will align and we get a sequel that is not only good, but actually surpasses its predecessor, so with that in mind here are 5 Video Game seque...[Read More]

GameStop Special Offer

Gamers rejoice! I bring you glad tidings and savings, at least for video games, but then why else would you be here if not for all things video game related, my sparkling personality? If you’re like me, you spend the majority of your money on fast food, toys from the 90’s (you best believe I have the White Tiger Megazord!) and of course video games. The collection I have amassed throughout the yea...[Read More]

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]
