Bladestorm: Nightmare

Saturday, 28 March 2015
I'm no expert on the Dynasty Warriors series. I've played around two of them, and though the hack-and-slash genre isn't exactly my go-to genre of choice, I've found them to be pretty fun. Dynasty Warriors was a spin-off of Romance of the Three Kingdoms, a game released for the Amiga and MSX in 1985. Originally starting as a pretty straight forward Beam 'em-up on the original Playstation back in 1997, Dynasty Warriors then expanded into the realm of having the player take on entire armies all at ...

Battlefield: Hardline

Thursday, 26 March 2015
I can't really sit here and pretend I'm some kind of fan of Battlefield. I know reviewers out there will tell you they played every game, expansion and DLC, but just being honest here- I haven't. It's not because I think it's a crap series, it isn't, but beyond Battlefield: Bad Company and Battlefield 4, I just haven't played any other entries in the series. For me (along with 99% of the population of the Earth) Battlefield kind of goes side-by-side with Modern Warfare, as both play and come ... Read More

Horns

Wednesday, 25 March 2015
Out now on Blu-Ray and DVD comes Horns,the tale of a young man who, after being accused of killing his childhood sweetheart, suddenly wakes up horns growing out of his forehead and rocking a devilishly persuasive attitude. Directed by schlock director Alexandre Aja of Piranha 3D and Mirrors fame, Horns is a surprisingly well made flick with a great central performance by Daniel Radcliffe as the hellish Ig Parish.The original source material for Horns was the novel of the name by Stephen ...

Nightcrawler

Tuesday, 24 March 2015
Everyone seems to love Nightcrawler, Dan Gilroy’s 2014 crime thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal. At the time of writing, it holds a 95% “Certified Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes, based on 223 reviews. Their summary says it “offers dark, thought-provoking thrills”. It was even nominated for the Best Original Screenplay Oscar. I feel like I have to mention all this, because I’m at a complete loss: the film I watched last night, on Blu-ray, didn’t offer me any thrills – least of ... Read More

The Scorpion King 4: Quest for Power

Sunday, 22 March 2015
The Scorpion King 4?! What? Hold on a second, there was a Scorpion King 2?Personally, there's nothing quite like an action adventure film, particularly those that either fall into the “swords-and-sandals” or historical fiction genres. From the likes of Conan the Barbarian, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jason and the Argonauts, Clash of the Titans and Solomon Kane just to name a few, it's a type of film I'm drawn to- a viewing experience packed with adventure, fun, action and mystery. In the late ... Read More

Halo: Nightfall

Saturday, 21 March 2015
I can't believe it's almost been 10 years since I played the first game in the Halo series, Halo: Combat Evolved. When I first played it I was working and living with my brother in Northern Ireland for around 5 months, and after days of working a long shift in a terrible, terrible job, I would get back to his place and play Halo all night. It was incredible. From “The Silent Cartographer” mission, first coming up against the Flood to hearing “Rock Anthem For Saving The World” blast ... Read More
