Cities Skylines: Snowfall Expansion Review

Cities Skylines: Snowfall Expansion Review

Cities Skylines, or as I like to call it: Take That EAlines, is that kind of game you’ll find yourself wishing for more and more content to be added, so you can use it as an excuse to skip that wedding your sister’s having (again). Even though it released about a year ago, and I have an appetite for new and better games bigger than Trump’s wish for hate, Cities Skylines keeps, on a […]

The Minecraft Ending Has a Very Secret Message

The Minecraft Ending Has a Very Secret Message

Minecraft will always be known as a ‘quirky’ game – one look at the design of a creeper more than confirms that – however, it’s more than peculiar text-based ending – which sees two Godlike beings discussing life and dreams and just about everything else – baffled even the hardiest of fans. Given the truly endless nature of the gameplay, it seems strange that Minecraft creator Notch even decided to […]

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Review

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Review

WARNING: SPOILERS BELOW Finally, perhaps the most anticipated film of this century is upon us, and my oh my was it worth the wait. When the announcement that Disney were reviving the much-loved series first came, it was of course met with a rush of excitement, but also a severe twang of angst. Why? Because – as we saw with ill-recieved prequels – Star Wars is a franchise that’s easy […]

Krampus Review

Krampus Review

WARNING: SPOILERS BELOW Krampus is director Michael Dougherty’s horror/comedy attempt at Christmas gone wrong. Based on Alpine Folklore, the film has some stand out moments but, rather inopportunely, falls short in the long run. The opening scene, which features a Black Friday rush in a supermarket store, is arguably the best of the movie. Sardonically set to the sound of Andy Williams’ ‘It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year’, […]

Fallout 4 Review Roundup

Fallout 4 Review Roundup

Fallout 4 reviews are finally starting to surface, check out these opinions from all across the web. VideoGamer 9/10 “Whether it’s the moment-to-moment gameplay that you won’t see coming, or the occasional spectacular set piece designed to make your jaw slack, you’ll be desperate to discuss these with others (secretly hoping what you saw was for your eyes only) … The fact of the matter is, though, that this is […]

James Bond Spectre Review

James Bond Spectre Review

Following on from the beautiful Skyfall – perhaps the best film in James Bond’s entire history – was never going to be an easy task for director Sam Mendes. Nevertheless, while Spectre – his second attempt at the franchise – is certainly no masterpiece, it’s still a thrilling watch. Development of the film was marred by several controversies, first the release of Sam Smith’s whiney theme tune Writing’s On The […]

Everest (2015) Film Review

Everest (2015) Film Review

Everest is director Baltasar Kormákur’s (2 Guns, The Deep) beautiful yet lacking attempt at documenting the doomed 1996 Adventure Consultant’s mountain ascent – led by experienced New Zealand mountaineer Rob Hall (Jason Clarke) – which saw several climbers perish on the peaks. Partly based on the bestseller Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer, there’s no denying that the film does an admirable job of presenting one of the most stunning […]

This Book is a Dungeon Review

This Book is a Dungeon Review

This Review is a Book is a Dungeon is a Game! Oh my! Fear. Confusion. Lots and lots of death. A dark, uneasy atmosphere. I was bombarded by a flurry of emotions within the first few clicks in Nathan Meunier’s debut indie game, This Book is a Dungeon, a self-described “edgy interactive fiction with grisly pixel art and light RPG elements.” In layman’s terms, This Book is a Dungeon is […]

The Final Verdict: FIFA v PES

The Final Verdict: FIFA v PES

Another year, another pair of impressive soccer-sims. FIFA and PES have both came a long way since their conception back in the early 90’s but, with each of them excelling in certain areas and falling short in others, which is the right one for you? First of all, let’s get one thing straight. Despite the media clamor around the quite excellent gameplay of PES 2016, FIFA is the much more […]

With the European soccer season now well underway, FIFA returns for yet another year of action. Once again claiming to have refined their gameplay just that little bit more, EA are confident of another strong year and, while PES is seen as this years champion by many gaming outlets, FIFA will no doubt dominate the sales charts.  Below is a round-up of review scores from around the web, including some […]
