8-Bit Armies

Ah the humble RTS, how I’ve missed you. It seems like only yesterday I was whiling away my Saturday nights trying to get past that God damn chopper mission from the first C&C or pouring days at a time into Red Alert 3, good times. But with EA determined to empty their bowels all over the Command & Conquer franchise it seemed that my RTS thirst was to go unquenched, that was until 8-Bit Arm...[Read More]

Blood Realm

Before I had even read one word of Blood Realm I was awe struck by the artwork. It is simple but at the same time intricate, beautiful yet disturbing, like something from a nightmare. In certain panels, particularly the ones that feature the outdoors/landscapes, it is evident that the artwork has a life of its own, at times it felt like it would leap right off of the page. I also found the use of ...[Read More]

Eden

Imagine strolling through a beautiful garden, adorned with colourful flowers, enchanting smells and the softest grass as far as the eye can see.  Well this comic is kind of like that, except that it’s filled with alien life, spaceships, intergalactic warriors and the suspension of any belief that you are safe. So, let’s take a walk. The first aspect that came to my attention even before I had made...[Read More]

Absolver

Absolver may have been released to the world in August 2017 but unfortunately we never got round to reviewing it. But given that it’s free on PS Plus and seeing how the summer video game drought has hit us hard, now seems like the perfect time to give it a whirl. In the world of Adal, young trainee warriors roam the land searching for opponents so they might prove their worth and join the peacekee...[Read More]

Invasion From Planet Wrestletopia: Issue 2

Issue number two of Invasion from planet wrestletopia starts of on a sombre note as it reveals a little about Rory’s childhood. It would appear that wrestling is the family business as we witness a dejected Terry Landell (Rory’s Father) having to admit to his girl that he has not returned with the belt they both desire.  Though when he slapped what can only be described as a wad of notes on the ta...[Read More]

State of Decay 2

The first thing that came to mind while playing this game was that it isn’t going to win any beauty contests, it’s not awful, it just seems to lack a certain polish. A perfect example of this is the vehicle design, while the cars themselves look great smaller details like the taillights or petrol caps look like they were an afterthought.  If this had been the only instance of graphically cut corne...[Read More]

Fortnite Battle Royale

  Fortnite: Battle Royale is a free-to-play (which immediately put it on my radar) battle royale game. It features up to 100 players, all with the same objective. Eliminate all other competitors on the battlefield and be the last player standing. And you must achieve this while staying within a continuously shrinking safe zone lest the unblinking eye of God turn his gaze upon you, burning you...[Read More]

NBA 2K18

I decided to test out my skills against the computer A.I in an exhibition match before I attempted anything as insane as online or local co-op. I was up against The Cleveland Cavaliers for my inaugural match and knowing essentially nothing about basketball I opted to play as The Boston Celtics because I have vague memories of them being quite good in previous NBA titles. While the Boston Celtics m...[Read More]

Into the Unknown: Part 3 Apocalypse Chow

In our last entry we left our heroes on the ragged edge of an ever-closing zone 4, now we return to the action, with each passing moment the odds stack higher, and not in Shannon or Kevin’s favour. After composing our-selves and proceeding into zone five, I am left with this sinking feeling that we are nearing the end of our long journey.  Consulting the map brings little joy, even collecting supp...[Read More]

Into the Unknown: Part 2 Out of The Frying Pan

Welcome to part deux of the Kevin and Crangle’s adventure blog series, for those of you that are unfamiliar with the happenings so far check out part one. We begin this chapter with a more cautious approach than before, to begin we have concealed our weapons and blended in to our surroundings like a fart in the wind.  I parachute from the plane and make my way to the old abandoned hospital where I...[Read More]
