Final Fantasy 7: Remake

To be honest I haven’t been looking forward to writing this review, never has the phrase “Be careful what you wish for” been more true. Ever since 2005 when Square Enix released a tech demo of Final Fantasy 7 I have been praying for a remake, and never have I been more disappointed to get what I asked for. All they had to do was remake Final Fantasy 7 in gorgeous modern graphics, hell, I would hav...[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]

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Vol. 1

Like most kids who grew up in the 90’s I loved The Power Rangers, I mean what wasn’t to love? It was about a group of badass teenagers with attitude who wore colourful outfits and rode around in robot dinosaurs kicking all kinds of ass. Of course as I grew up I realised how cheesy some of the dialogue was and yes, the writers may have gone a tad overboard with the whole “power of friendship” motif...[Read More]

Persona 5: Royal

This review has been a while coming because the majority of the new story content is at the end of the game (not that I’d know but we’ll get to that) and I didn’t want to plagiarise my Persona 5 (classic) review. But after 100 + hours and an R.S.I in my wrist I think I am finally ready to reveal my true self! I mean reveal my opinion, sorry, it’s been a long 100 hours. The plot remains largely unc...[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]

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]

The 5 Worst Irish Video Game Characters Ever

Tis the season to get wankered! Ah yes St. Patrick’s Day, the day when we proud Irish men and women venerate an agnostic English man who said “Out te fuck ye slithering bastards”! And while most of my country men will mark this occasion by getting rubbered, I choose to celebrate it by twisting it into an excuse to talk about video games. With that said here are 5 of The Worst Irish Video Game Char...[Read More]

Final Fantasy VII: Remake Demo

I haven’t exactly been silent about my concerns for the Final Fantasy VII remake. From the way Square Enix have decided to carve it up so they can sell us one game three times to the new combat system that is completely different from the original, I have made my displeasure known. So when I found out that Square Enix had released a demo I thought this was a perfect way to ease some of my concerns...[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]

Everything Wrong With The Rise of Skywalker: Part 2

This has got to be the first time in my writing career that a film has been so bad that I have been unable to quarantine my displeasure to a scathing review alone. Hell, by writing this two part blog post I have proved that one review and one article isn’t enough. But rest assured after this article The Rise of Skywalker will be safe from me, omitting one or two snarky comments in future reviews o...[Read More]

Everything Wrong With The Rise of Skywalker: Part 1

While my review of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker may be finished, it turns out I have more bile than I know what to do with, except I do know what to do with it, complain on the internet! That’s right, I had so many problems with  this film that for the first time ever I am doing a two part blog post to go along with a review just to hammer home how much of a balls up this film turn out to be. ...[Read More]
