My Thoughts on The Monster Hunter World Iceborne Beta

Well the weekend has once again come and gone, and like any gamer I spent it playing a metric fuck tonne of video games. Both Crash Team Racing and Bloodstained: Ritual of The Night came out at the same time, two games I have been eagerly anticipating. But in the end I ended up spending a huge chunk of my time playing the beta for the Monster Hunter World expansion “Iceborne”. I did play the core ...[Read More]

John Romero Interview

John Romero is the original Rock Star of gaming, the Godfather of the first person shooter, responsible for coining the now infamous term deathmatch. Need we say any more? Oh we will, John set the standard for first person shooter game play almost 20 years ago and simply put, every FPS you’ve ever played or heard of has been influenced by the work of this genius. We got the chance to interview the...[Read More]

Dublin Comic Con 2019

  If you are anything like us (and if you’re reading this it’s a safe bet you are) you are a pundit of the poindextrous, a video game veteran and a connoisseur of comics. And as someone who ticks all three boxes I feel it only right to use my platform to let others know when the opportunity to indulge these pastimes arises.  I am of course talking about Dublin Comic Con 2019, taking place on ...[Read More]

Video Games to Look Forward to in 2019

Well it’s been 2019 for a few days now and nothing terrible has happened. But if 2018 is any indication on what’s to come we should be expecting the death of a beloved celebrity and the president of the USA to do something alarmingly racist. However it’s not all doom and gloom on the horizon, we still have video games and this year is shaping up to have some great ones, so here are some of the vid...[Read More]

Top 5 Video Games of 2018

With 2018 firmly in the rear-view mirror (and good fucking riddance to it) it’s about that time were we look back at all the awesome games we’ve enjoyed over the past year. Of course this list is personal and by no means definitive; these are just the games that I personally have had the most fun with in 2018.   5th Dead Cells I always seem to be late to the party when it comes to games like ...[Read More]

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 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]

5 Times Batman Has Killed

Ask any comic book fan to name something that makes Batman stand out from the cape and cowl crowd, and they will likely reply with something about his ability to complete his mission without resorting to taking a life. In fact, this principal is so ingrained in the minds of most comic book fans that it’s one of the many reasons Dawn of Justice got such a poor reception, but, dear nerds, Batman has...[Read More]
