Ride

Thursday, 21 May 2015
As a reviewer I'm always open to every game that needs to be reviewed. I mean, I have to be because that's my job. Coming to reviews with a preconceived notion of a game or genre is generally a bad idea, as at the end of the day I want to give you guys and gals an unbiased perspective of a game. I'm not here to screw you around, and whether and game is great or complete shit, I'll let you know about it. Sure there are certain genres I don't really enjoy, but I always do my best to play those ... Read More

Birdman

Wednesday, 20 May 2015
Directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu and out now on Blu-Ray and DVD comes Birdman, a strange film in many ways. The way its shot, the way it seems to jump from psychological thriller to drama to comedy all within a minute, and in general – it’s strange. But that’s not to say strange is a bad thing.Alejandro González Iñárritu has a fairly small back catalogue, so to score four Oscars, including Best Pictureand Best Director would have been surprising, had it not been for Birdman: ...

Omega Quintet

Tuesday, 19 May 2015
You can't go a week without Compile Heart releasing a JRPG for a Sony console. Some of them are good, some are not so good, but I genuinely like being overwhelmed with choice. Sure, as it was with the Playstation 2 era, we may look back at a lot of Playstation 4 titles as shovelware someday, but for now Sony seem to be dishing out some pretty decent content. This latest game up for review looks, sounds and plays like 99% of the other JRPGs on the market, and while not exactly being very ... Read More

Cobain: Montage of Heck

Monday, 18 May 2015
I feel like I need to preface this review by saying that I'm not a huge Nirvana fan. That doesn't mean I don't like them though. “Smells like teen spirit” is a pretty awesome song, as is “Come as you are” and “Heart shaped box”. But beyond enjoying a few of their songs, I just don't put them up on the pedestal that a lot of people tend to do. I knew a bit about Kurt Cobain, but most of that surrounded his death. This latest documentary on Nirvana's leading man pulls the focus back ... Read More

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb

Sunday, 17 May 2015
Like the titles, this series of films just doesn’t know when to stop. As happens so frequently with franchises, what started as a great concept quickly becomes over used and boring. Transformers did it, Jaws did it, hell, even Indiana Jones managed to do it. Not to say that Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian was terrible, it just wasn’t as good as the first. And now, the third isn’t as good as the second. Directed by Shawn Levy and out now on Blu-Ray and DVD comes Night ... Read More

Horrible Bosses 2

Saturday, 16 May 2015
Comedy sequels can be great. But they can also be terrible. Warner Bros’ other three-man tale of inappropriate behaviour is of course The Hangover trilogy. The first film in said trilogy was fresh and original, and a huge success. Then came The Hangover Part II and Part III. Part II was basically just a remake of the first, where Part III was like something out of a completely different trilogy. The first Hangover still has a lot of fans, but the sequels disappointed on almost every level. ... Read More

The Top 5 Playstation 3 Platformers

Friday, 15 May 2015
With the life cycle of the Playstation 3 winding down after almost 10 years on the market, lets go back and check out some titles you may not have played when they were released. The beauty about discovering these classics is that you'll no doubt nab them at a pretty cheap price at your local CeX store. So, sit back and enjoy as I take you through the best platformers on the Playstation 3. Three of these games are technically re-releases from a previous generation. However, while some of you ...

State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition

Thursday, 14 May 2015
Since the TV series of The Walking Dead started zombies are everywhere, so much so that it already feels tired, overused and boring. I stopped watching The Walking Dead because of this. I forget which season I stopped at, but it was just after the point in which the Governor died. It was still a decent series, but the gigantic influx of zombie related films, games and TV series was just too much. Zombies just don't have their scare factor anymore, and have been relegated to the same place as ... Read More
