Pride in Video Games

With 2020 being the equivalent of a colonoscopy being performed by a rusted Edward Scissorhands with one eye, we have now entered the summer stages of the year, meaning that we have passed the halfway stage, and it will just be a bad dream, or a fond memory if the universe decides to be dick about 2021. In honour of Pride month this year, where we can still celebrate people being equal to one anot...[Read More]

Edna & Harvey: The Breakout – Anniversary Edition

Edna & Harvey: The Breakout is a story about a young girl who wakes up to find herself locked inside the padded cell of an asylum without any recollection of how she got there, and her journey to freedom. Which is fitting really, because as I failed to master the controls needed to break Edna and her stuffed rabbit Harvey away from the clutches of Dr. Marcel’s sanatorium during this point and ...[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]

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 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]

Animal Crossing: New Horizons

There are two excuses for the tardiness of this review. The first is that the world has been turned upside down so adapting to working from home means the novelty of writing about fun things from my home desk has been ruined by necessity. Second, is that Animal Crossing: New Horizons is so damn wonderful and soothing that for the first week after its release, every time I tried to squeeze in some ...[Read More]

Thoughts on the PS5 controller From The Perspective of a Troll

I’m sure you’re all aware that Sony recently revealed their design for the Playstation 5 controller, and I’m also sure you have formed an opinion one way or another about it. I’m not here to discuss whether it’s good or bad, no, what I’d like to do is take the piss, like I do with most things in life. And after reading some of the online comments I thought the best way to do that would be in the f...[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]

Psikyo Shooting Stars Bravo

Psikyo Shooting Stars Bravo is the second Psikyo collection to be released by NIS America in the same number of months with the former focused on the Strikers 1945 series alongside SOL DIVIDE, Dragon Blaze, and ZERO GUNNER 2. Psikyo Shooting Stars Bravo however, leans heavily on the Samurai Aces series with six classic titles: Samurai Aces Episode I, Samurai Aces Episode II: TENGAI, Samurai Aces E...[Read More]

5 Worst Video Games of 2019

Well you’ve heard Laura’s thoughts on Tetris 99 and how it’s a hidden gem of a game; we’ve had Jude discuss the many games he’s enjoyed throughout the year! And while that’s all well and good I think we can all agree there have been more than a few stinkers. And given that World War III will likely kick off any day now I think we’re all in need of catharsis, a good purge of ill will or to put it i...[Read More]
