Eastern Exorcist

2020 has been a pretty shit year all round, racial tension in America, Donald Trump as President of America…well, just America in general really, the coronavirus wreaking havoc on the world and to top it all off the video games have been a bit of a let-down. I had all but resigned myself to the fact that I would just have to wait until November when Cyberpunk 2077 comes out (and it better come out...[Read More]

My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising

I can’t say that I’m a huge anime fan, that’s not to say I dislike all anime. Like most lovers of all things nerd related I tried Dragon Ball Z, but after waiting 3 episodes for one guy to charge up an attack only to miss, I decided it wasn’t for me. Occasionally I will dip my toe back in the waters of anime at the behest of a friend with the assurance that “this one is different from all the othe...[Read More]

The Predator

To be honest I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I heard about this movie, it seems to be the Hollywood norm at the minute to take an established franchise and either reboot it or make a quasi-sequel. Either way for the most part they aren’t great (cough) Robocop 2014, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Terminator Genisys (cough), you get my point. So believe me when I say I certainly wasn’t expect...[Read More]

Ready Player One

I may take a hit by admitting this, but I have never actually read the novel Ready Player One, I know I know, it’s a huge glowing red weak spot on my geek cred. But it also puts me in a unique position as someone who loves the subject matter but won’t be comparing it to the book. For better or worse, that affords me the opportunity to review Ready Player One as a movie rather than a movie adaptati...[Read More]

Tiny Troopers Joint Ops XL

The game starts off with a Tutorial mode which is mildly annoying, due to the repetitive music and noises from npcs, before throwing you into the main menu where you can choose from Soldier, Special Ops (which are essentially the same), Zombie campaign or Zombie Horde. The non-zombie related missions were quite dull and very samey with an odd difficulty curve for some missions, all of which start ...[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]

King Arthur: Legend of The Sword

But seriously, it’s the standard hack Arthurian tale, King Uther (Bana) has been murdered by an evil bastard named Vortigern (Jude law) and the masses decided that, “that is jolly well enough of that, but rather than elect a strong and fair leader why don’t we pin all our futures on that tosser Arthur (Hunnam) who pulled a sword from a stone, and possesses none of the qualifications necessar...[Read More]

Logan

So I have just gotten back from seeing Logan and I am putting it out there right now, this one may actually be the best X-men movie never mind wolverine movie. Now, the movie isn’t in the cinemas at time of writing and I know I would be pissed if someone spoiled any of it for me, so rest assured there will be no spoilers here. Other than it’s awesome. (Fuck Spoilers!) Plot The plot is set in the y...[Read More]

John Wick: Chapter 2

I was worried after seeing the posters and trailer that John Wick: Chapter 2 would just be a rehash of the original, maybe someone else would steal his car and kill his new dog, I remember saying “if another fucking dog dies” I will walk out. Thankfully the plot is pretty original and does what all good sequels should, builds on the existing universe to tell a new story. The Plot The plot picks up...[Read More]

Batman: The Black Mirror

Black Mirror is a story set in an interesting time at DC, Bruce Wayne effectively died during the events of Final Crisis which lead to Dick Grayson taking up the mantle of Batman, a decision he struggled with many times with other writers at the helm. Scott Snyder has a different take, Dick Grayson is much more comfortable and experienced in the role of being Gotham’s Dark Knight and more im...[Read More]

Assassin’s creed

Assassin’s Creed, based on the video game series of the same name, follows Callum Lynch (Fassbender) as he experiences the adventures of his Assassin ancestor, Aguilar (Also Fassbender), in 15th Century Spain. Forced by the Templars and through the power of the Animus, Cal searches for the Apple of Eden, a mysterious and powerful artefact that can control free will. (an apple a day keeps the Dr fr...[Read More]

Dishonored 2

The  main story is pretty strong, it picks up fifteen years after the events of the first game, Emily is now the Empress of the Isles and Corvo is her bodyguard. The Empress is then attacked, some betrayal goes on and either Corvo or Emily has to flee the empire in order to find out who is behind the plot, and regain the throne.  It’s a similar progression to the original, as in its heavily ...[Read More]
