Justice League: The Snyder Cut

I can remember when all this “Snyder Cut” business first started, it wasn’t long after the Joss Whedon’s version had hit theatres that phrases like “Release the Snyder Cut” began echoing within forums across the internet. And all I can remember thinking was “Why the fuck would anybody want that?”, it was as if the whole world collectively forgot how badly he had fucked up “Man of Steel” and ...[Read More]

5 Video Games We’re Supposed To Love But Just Don’t

We all have a video game (or two) that we absolutely love despite the general consensus that they are less than stellar! For me it’s the Fable series, while it has its fans, the majority’s opinion seems to be that they are a shallow experience not worth revisiting.  But bollocks to that! I love to run around in my pants twatting people with a frying pan….in Fable of course, I was found innocent at...[Read More]

5 Of The Best Souls-Borne Bosses

I haven’t always been a fan of the Souls-Borne games, in fact the first time I played one (Dark Souls 1) I bounced right off it. Maybe it was the way the game introduced combat, maybe it was the controls or (and I think this is the main reason) it’s because I took a right and ended up in skeletal buggery hell. As it turns out, this area was a late game area and I was supposed to go left, but after...[Read More]

We Need More Heterosexual Male Platonic Love

I have been meaning to discuss this topic for a while now. Ever since I saw a relationship between two characters in season four of My Hero Academia and the subsequent reaction the internet had to it, but more on that later. Fortunately for me, yet unfortunately for society as a whole, this is an ever green topic, but after watching the latest episode of “Supernatural” and seeing a certain scene (...[Read More]

The Suicide of Rachel Foster

I don’t often play “Walking Simulator” games, more accurately, I don’t complete many “Walking Simulators”, I have, in fact, started dozens, it’s just the majority of them  don’t really do anything to maintain my interest. Over the years there have been two exceptions, “Gone Home” and “Journey” but now that I have completed “The Suicide of Rachel Foster” I can proudly say…there are still only two. ...[Read More]

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]

Ubisoft Are Scum!

The other day I sat down to edit a review one of my colleagues had written, it was Ghost Recon Breakpoint, a dull shooter published by Ubisoft. As I read over the review, making notes and suggesting possible edits, I noticed that he hadn’t mentioned the recent allegations, which I refer to as such only for legal reasons, I 100% believe that these disgusting fucks are guilty! I assumed that perhaps...[Read More]

Mortal Shell

Ever since FromSoftware created the beloved Soulsborne series there have been many imitators, determined to replicate their success. And while some have been better than others, none have truly captured what made the Soulsborne games so great. But with the Dark Souls series wrapped up and no sign of a Bloodborne sequel, those of us hungry for another bollock buster of a video game are forced to lo...[Read More]

The Last of Us: Part II

This review isn’t exactly timely and there’s a good reason for that, and no, it’s not because I’m a lazy bastard…well, not just that. Simply put, I didn’t want to continue playing, which for a video game, is a big problem. Normally when I’m playing a game I’m hard pressed to drag myself away from it, hell, even if I don’t particularly like it, I have an “I’ve started, so I’ll finish” approach to v...[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]
