Film Review: Jurassic Park III (2001)

Note: My reviews of Jurassic Park and The Lost World: Jurassic Park can be found here and here respectively. The original Jurassic Park was a revelation when it first released. The special effects were nothing short of astonishing and it really did push boundaries, breaking new ground in visual effects technology that unquestionably changed the way that films were made, […]

Review: Colin Thiele's Storm Boy – The Game

Version Played: Xbox One – Also available on: Android, iOS, PS4, Switch, PC, Mac I hadn’t heard of Storm Boy before coming across the video game adaptation in an Xbox One sale, but the Australian novel it’s based on has been a perenially popular childrens book since its publication in 1966. It’s been adapted into a film twice – once […]

Game Pass Adventures

Readers, this week has been a monumental week for me on Game Pass. Why is that? Well, let’s find out… The Witcher III Yep, this is exactly why. Having been made available on Game Pass a short while ago – and with the Henry Cavill-starring Netflix series causing serious thirst around the world – I finally got a chance to […]

O Stadia, Where Art Thou?

Hands up if you remembered that Google launched a console-less video game streaming service last year? I’d forgive you if you weren’t able to recall that; it seems that those responsible for Stadia’s muted launch weren’t interested in promoting it either, even on launch day. There’s been the odd snippet of news here and there, as well as the update […]

Board Game Review: Duelosaur Island

My dinosaur obsession – or, perhaps more specifically, my dinosaur theme park obsession, thanks to Jurassic World: Evolution – has spilled over from the TV screen to the tabletop, with two player board game Duelosaur Island being the latest way I’ve discovered to scratch that very particular itch. The little brother of critical and commercial darling, Dinosaur Island – a […]

Bad Lip Reading: Star Wars Edition

As a bonus to pick you up after all yesterday’s disappointing gaming news, how about checking out Bad Lip Reading on YouTube? I am so late to the party for this. Though I’d seen a Bad Lip Reading video before – Redneck Avengers – and thought it was both clever and hilarious, I hadn’t stumbled upon their songs; one of […]

Review: Roll’d

Out: Now – Price: £1.79/$1.99 – Nintendo Switch A strange but oddly compelling little game, Roll’d dumps you into proceedings without telling you anything at all – your little character running along a pathway for…reasons. It takes a few seconds – and a few failures – to truly grasp what’s going on. You don’t control the character at all; in […]

Board Game Review: Little Battle

As regular readers will know – particularly those of you who read the blog over the Christmas period – I’m a big fan of board games, especially those that come in small packages with playing time to match. Little Battle is another very small game with very few components – suitable for players of all ages – that has a […]

Weekly Round Up

I seemed to cover an awful lot of ground this week; though it was at my usual pace of an article a day, it certainly felt as if I covered more than usual. So I wouldn’t blame you if you missed anything; it seems to me that it’s a good idea take a look at what I wrote about over […]
