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]

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]

5 Great Movies Based On Video Games

Try as they might those Hollywood guys just can’t get this whole “Video Game Movie” thing right, well that’s only if you’re one of those people that doesn’t know how to have fun. While it’s true there hasn’t been a video game movie that’s Oscar worthy, that doesn’t mean they’re all terrible. Don’t get me wrong, most of them are complete garbage, but every now and then one will come along that exce...[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]

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood (Nintendo Switch)

Max and the Curse of Wonderwall revolves around the titular Max, who comes home to find his dick of a younger brother smashing up his toys. And like any reasonable prepubescent, Max proceeds to look up a spell online to rid himself of his terminal case of younger brother. After succeeding Max decides that it might be a bit difficult explaining to his mother that he opened a Lovecraftian horror por...[Read More]

God of War

You would have a hard time convincing people that the way Kratos goes about things in the previous God of War games resembles anything close to reasonable. But I got the feeling, we weren’t meant to take him seriously and simply enjoy the cathartic violence. So, when this new God of War sauntered onto our screens with a new family and a more reserved attitude I was somewhat puzzled. You’ve killed ...[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]
