Pride in Video Games

With 2020 being the equivalent of a colonoscopy being performed by a rusted Edward Scissorhands with one eye, we have now entered the summer stages of the year, meaning that we have passed the halfway stage, and it will just be a bad dream, or a fond memory if the universe decides to be dick about 2021. In honour of Pride month this year, where we can still celebrate people being equal to one anot...[Read More]

The Last of Us Part II – Violence Isn’t The Answer

So The Last of Us Part II is finally out and it’s received much critical and commercial success, with good reason. It is a fantastically well-polished game that plays tightly, looks gorgeous and has some interesting gameplay mechanics. Unfortunately all of that is tainted by the borderline grotesque amounts of violence it contains. Now before you go assuming I’m just some violence denouncing SJW l...[Read More]

Why the variety of trailers at the “Future of Gaming Event” is a good thing

So Sony has revealed the PS5 for the world to see and the reception has been, for the most part, positive, obviously you can’t please everyone. But it wasn’t just the new console Sony unveiled, they also revealed a whole heap of new video games, most of which look as if they are going to be a lot of fun.  And as one trailer after another played I remember thinking, “wow, this is an eclectic bunch ...[Read More]

Top 5 Most Intriguing Games Revealed For PS5

Well Sony’s PlayStation 5 has finally been revealed and we’ve all had a chance to ooh and ahh, and while it’s great to finally know what it looks like, for me (like most things in life), it’s all about the video games. We got a sneak peek of some of what PlayStation has in store for us video game wise and let me tell you I am siked. Of course not everyone saw this as a good thing, some were angry ...[Read More]

PlayStation 5 – First Impressions

I’ve never spent too much time on the notion before but I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m a bit of a Sony loyalist. The original PlayStation was my first console so I suppose nostalgia has a lot to do with it, but the only times I’ve ever been properly lured by Microsoft were for Fable II on the Xbox 360 and a timed exclusive Tomb Raider collector’s edition (yes I know, I’m a sucker). Suffice t...[Read More]

Our Most Anticipated Games of 2020

This year hasn’t been kind to us, with Australia burning, threats of a new world war, a virus that has claimed thousands of lives, and now every social media site is plagued with those fucking TikTok videos. The only solace can be found in gaming, and lots of it. But, due to the pandemic there has been a severe reduction in productivity, which is understandable considering the circumstances. Still...[Read More]

Top 5 Boss Battles in Video Games – Part 2

We have discussed video game boss battles before in “Top 5 Boss Battles in Video Games”, but like many of the video game bosses in our last entry, we are back for round two. Our previous blog post about boss battles was one that you guys filled with your choices, and they were some great bosses. This one however is filled with all of my favourites, meaning it is completely subjective and if you do...[Read More]

Top 5 Easter Eggs In Video Games

Today is the day when some people celebrate the resurrection of a messianic figure, but for most people it is an excuse to eat chocolate for breakfast without the world judging us. Yes it is Easter and that means Easter Eggs, but if you’re like me (and of course you are because we are in the midst of a global Pandemic) you’re trapped in doors with a laughably low supply of Easter chocolate. So if ...[Read More]

Thoughts on the PS5 controller From The Perspective of a Troll

I’m sure you’re all aware that Sony recently revealed their design for the Playstation 5 controller, and I’m also sure you have formed an opinion one way or another about it. I’m not here to discuss whether it’s good or bad, no, what I’d like to do is take the piss, like I do with most things in life. And after reading some of the online comments I thought the best way to do that would be in the f...[Read More]

Why Persona 5: Royal is worth the asking price

When Persona 5: Royal was first announced I was sceptical, don’t get me wrong, I loved the idea of more Persona 5 and was only too happy to pry open my wallet and pay a little extra for additional content. But my hype train halted in its tracks when I found out that rather than paying an extra £15 or £20 for a DLC pack, I would have to shell out £40 and re-purchase the game. To me it just seemed g...[Read More]

5 Video Games To Get You Through Quarantine

It’s been a difficult few weeks for everybody what with the Corona Virus forcing us all in to an indeterminate Quarantine. But like the eternal optimist that I am (stop laughing) I always try to look on the bright side. Okay, sure we can’t leave our homes to spend time with our loved ones and yes you can’t buy toilet paper to save your life, but at least we have video games! That’s a fair trade of...[Read More]
