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!

Final Fantasy VII

So, with news of Final Fantasy VII finally getting a remake, I felt it was time to dust off the PlayStation One, dig out my old copy and replay it for the 20th time. But then I thought to myself, “bollocks to that, it’s the future!”, so I downloaded to my PSP, so I could play it on the go and quite frankly, it hasn’t been out of my hands. You see Final Fantasy games require a lot of your time, (we...[Read More]

Dr Strange

Dr Strange is Marvels latest block Buster, now; I freely admit that there is a gap in my Nerd Knowledge when it comes to the “Sorcerer Supreme”. I’m not completely unfamiliar with him, while I haven’t read any of the comics he stars in, I did see the 2007 animated movie, which I really enjoyed. On the bright side, this does allow me to review the movie as John Everyman. Without the bias that being...[Read More]

Jessica Jones

Be warned I’m going into spoiler territory here, but frankly if you haven’t watched Jessica Jones yet then I don’t care about your feelings and you can’t come to my birthday party.  Seriously go watch this show, even if you’re not a fan of the superhero genre. The plot Our story is about Jessica Jones played by Krysten Ritter, a female private eye with super strength and durability. Rather than da...[Read More]

Great!

Mantis Burn Racing

This change of direction really works for them, they’ve designed a fun little racing game featuring various tracks and challenges. Like most racing games you can choose from a selection of cars, but first you must unlock them by completing races or challenges. I liked this aspect of the game, mainly because it felt more satisfying to earn better vehicles rather than have them all available from th...[Read More]

Good

Tarik (Issue 1)

Thus far I have only had the pleasure of reading the first issue of Tarik so a full review is always difficult but like the professional I am (Fuck you, I am) I persevered . The Plot Tarik is set in “the Kingdom of Altair” and follows the story of a young boy named Tarik, a member of the iron district. He is left orphaned as a boy when his mother, “Grania” and his father (unnamed), are killed by m...[Read More]

Telltale’s Batman

I’ve  played the majority of video games starring Batman, the Arkham games being a particular favourite. So when Telltale announced that they would be doing a new game involving the caped crusader, I must admit I had a happy trouser moment. At present, there are only two episodes out, like most Telltale games “Batman” is episodic. I have nothing against episodic games as a whole; I just wish we ha...[Read More]

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

First of all I must state that I’m not a huge Tim Burton fan; other than his two Batman movies I haven’t seen much else of his work. Not because his stuff doesn’t appeal to me, I’ve just never really watched much of it. However, this film feels different; almost like a new direction for Tim Burton. The story follows Jacob “Jake” Portman, a 16 year old boy who has been brought up ...[Read More]

Okay

Lords of the Fallen

Lords of the Fallen is an action RPG set in a Viking style world that was developed by Deck13 Interactive and CI Games and follows the story of Harkyn. The opening cinematic shows him fighting a massive demon and trying to summon a god to fight with his giant hammer. Right I thought, this is the business, let me fight that bastard and smite the holy shite out of him. But no, apparently that would ...[Read More]

Modding

Modding is a funny thing, from Thomas the tank engine instead of dragons in Skyrim to naked people in Fallout 3; it was something I never really took seriously. That was until I found out that some people who mod games do it to make them run and look better. It was then I asked myself “Would it add anything to the experience?” or more accurately, “Could it add something new to an...[Read More]

Darth Vader Pt. 1-2

So we all know that when Disney bought over the Star Wars movies that they declared the whole extended universe non-cannon, yup say goodbye to the dark horse comics, the many novels and the excellent “knights of the old republic” video games/slash stories that came with it.

Brilliant!!

Outlast

Okay, so first off let me say I am new to horror games, I mean I played the original Resident Evil games but beyond that I’ve had no real experience with them. Well I recently upgraded my PC and was looking for something different and was recommended Outlast. I knew next to nothing about it and went in blind.
