Uncharted Vs. Tomb Raider

I’m about to say the thing you’re not supposed to say. My nine-year-old self who would cut cardboard dual pistols out of cereal boxes and somersault off my bunk bed would feel betrayed. Current me, who looked high and low to find Croft Apple Larazade like it was bottled from the Fountain of Youth, doesn’t want to say it out loud. But here goes … I might actually prefer Uncharted to Tomb Raider. (&...[Read More]

Red Dead Redemption 2

As we know, Rockstar Studios love to surpass all our greatest expectations and bring nothing short of near perfection to our screens. Try and imagine if all the greatest Westerns were put into one game, times it by a thousand, and you have RDR2. It may have been released last year but I have taken my time in playing this game and enjoyed every waking moment of travelling around the expansive lands...[Read More]

Retroactive Microtransactions

I never thought I’d be on this side of the argument, the side that warns people to “be wary of games”, the side the cries “think of the children”, but here we are, I hope you’re happy AAA games industry! I love video games, hell; I co-founded a company dedicated to them. As a young child I enjoyed playing video games with my brother, something we still bond over to this day. As a teenager they pro...[Read More]

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice was the latest gift given to us from known developers FromSoftware. This is a third-person action RPG based in a re-imagined 16th century Sengoku period Japan, and it retains much of what made the other games in the series popular with a strong cult following, such as the Dark Souls trilogy. You are a shinobi with a name, face and backstory already laid out for you, rathe...[Read More]

5 of The Worst Underwater Levels in Video Games

Underwater levels have been in video games since before Mario’s face dawned a flavour saver, a game wasn’t worth its salt if it didn’t include at least one level where the hero must fight bedraggled baddies. Hell, even The Witcher 3, one of the greatest games ever made, has sunken sidequests to complete. And while most underwater levels look and play differently, they all have one thing in common,...[Read More]

5 Scariest Moments in Non Horror Games

I like to think I can handle my horror games; after all, the Resident Evil series are some of my favourite games. But that’s because I go in with the understanding that horror is on the cards and I will, in all likelihood, be jump-scared within an inch of my life. It’s the utter bastards that sneak horror into non horror games that make me question my life choices; here are 5 of the scariest momen...[Read More]

John Romero Interview

John Romero is the original Rock Star of gaming, the Godfather of the first person shooter, responsible for coining the now infamous term deathmatch. Need we say any more? Oh we will, John set the standard for first person shooter game play almost 20 years ago and simply put, every FPS you’ve ever played or heard of has been influenced by the work of this genius. We got the chance to interview the...[Read More]

Top 5 Boss Battles in Video Games

Video game bosses are meant to be a test of skill, an adversary we must best in order to prove just how far we have come. But there are some boss battles that are more than that, there are some bosses that stand apart from their peers. Perhaps it’s because it was particularly challenging and we felt such a sense of pride after finally besting them. Maybe it’s because the mechanics are so unique th...[Read More]

Dublin Comic Con 2019

  If you are anything like us (and if you’re reading this it’s a safe bet you are) you are a pundit of the poindextrous, a video game veteran and a connoisseur of comics. And as someone who ticks all three boxes I feel it only right to use my platform to let others know when the opportunity to indulge these pastimes arises.  I am of course talking about Dublin Comic Con 2019, taking place on ...[Read More]

Video Games to Look Forward to in 2019

Well it’s been 2019 for a few days now and nothing terrible has happened. But if 2018 is any indication on what’s to come we should be expecting the death of a beloved celebrity and the president of the USA to do something alarmingly racist. However it’s not all doom and gloom on the horizon, we still have video games and this year is shaping up to have some great ones, so here are some of the vid...[Read More]

Top 5 Video Games of 2018

With 2018 firmly in the rear-view mirror (and good fucking riddance to it) it’s about that time were we look back at all the awesome games we’ve enjoyed over the past year. Of course this list is personal and by no means definitive; these are just the games that I personally have had the most fun with in 2018.   5th Dead Cells I always seem to be late to the party when it comes to games like ...[Read More]

5 Video Game Heroes Who Aren’t That Heroic

Heroes come in all shapes and sizes, particularly video game heroes. They can be tall muscular badasses, mute marsupials with a penchant for denim shorts or even a winged fire breathing lizard. Whatever their outward appearance they are heroes one and all, but every now and then we get a video game protagonist that isn’t all that heroic, I know right? Shocking! Here are 5 such instances.   Kr...[Read More]
