Eastern Exorcist

2020 has been a pretty shit year all round, racial tension in America, Donald Trump…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 then CD Projekt Red!). ...[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]

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]
