Dying Light - 2nd Look

Sunday, 01 March 2015
I'm a huge fan of anything zombie related, and when footage of Dying Light was shown at E3 2013, I was fangirling like shit. However, this was another promising game that was delayed, pretty much summing up 2014 for "next-gen" gaming. Physical copies in every region bar North/South America were also delayed, but the digital versions were available, and I couldn't resist the higher RRP to wait any longer. It's been heavily compared to Dead Island, but is it much different? Personally, Dying ... Read More

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Saturday, 28 February 2015
I grew up watching and loving the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the original cartoon TV series that started in 1987 and ran for a total of 10 seasons. Alongside Transformers, Thundercats and Return to the Planet of the Apes (I know, I was a boring kid, alright?), the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was a cartoon I'd watch every Saturday morning with a bowl of Sugar Puffs. Of course, the Turtles didn't originate from this TV show, but rather from the Kevin Eastman and  Peter Laird 1984 comic ... Read More

Dying Light

Thursday, 26 February 2015
A while ago I reviewed the travesty that was Escape Dead Island. Generic in every way imaginable and genuinely awful to boot, the game is a complete mess. Escape Dead Island was a spin-off from the Dead Island series, which after developing the first game and its expansion, developer Techland left the franchise behind. However, while that may lead you to the assumption that Techland wanted to try something new, you'd be completely wrong in thinking so. Instead, after leaving a franchise that ... Read More

Evolve

Tuesday, 24 February 2015
More and more of the games that were delayed in 2014 that I couldn’t wait to play are all coming out in the next few months, and Evolve is next on my list of games to play. I was all aboard the hype train with this, and a few of my friends couldn’t see why. When you look at it, you might think “Four hunters vs. one monster constantly, won’t it get boring?” In the words of Di Caprio in The Wolf of Wall Street: “Absolutely f*cking not.” Will the game with over 60 awards live up to ...

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

Monday, 23 February 2015
Over the past year or so, there have been a few titles released for the PS Vita that are obviously doing they're best to replicate the success Capcom is having with Monster Hunter. The one that sticks out in my mind recently is Freedom Wars, a fun futuristic game that was essentially Monster Hunter with a sci-fi twist. But all of the imitators are just that- imitations. Since the first Monster Hunter game on the Playstation 2 was released just over a decade ago, the series has been a massive ... Read More

The Babadook

Sunday, 22 February 2015
“Ba...Baaaaa...Dook...Dooook...DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOK!”When this line was said during the movie I almost wet myself.I've always been a fan of horror, but if you've read some of my past reviews of horror movies you probably wouldn't think so. You see, compared to every other genre out there, I'm at my most picky when it comes to horror movies. Why? Because good, interesting and original horror is slowly getting pushed out of the way in place for run-of-the-mill horror that overuses both ... Read More

Futurama Volume 8

Saturday, 21 February 2015
Out now on Blu-Ray and DVD comes Futurama Volume 8 (also confusingly referred to as the 10th broadcast season, season 8 or the second half of season 7) and contains the last ever episodes of Futurama, and boy does the show go out on a high note.  Containing the usual mix of humour, obscure pop culture and scientific references, and heartfelt emotion this final volume of Futurama sums up why the show was such a big cult hit.The boxset contains 13 episodes and unlike a lot of other long ...

Gone Girl

Friday, 20 February 2015
Out now on DVD and Blu-ray, Gone Girl is the latest film from director David Fincher. It got rave reviews and a huge amount of hype on its release, but looking at it now is it that good? Is it another stand-out film from Fincher à la Seven or Fight Club? Or is it another The Curious Case of Benjamin Button?Based on Gillian Flynn’s novel of the same name (Flynn also wrote the screenplay for the film) Gone Girl shows what happens when a marriage falls to pieces and a divorce just isn’t ...
