News: Xbox Series S & Series X

So it all started with a supposed leak on Monday night. Before we knew what was going on, we had the price for Xbox Series S, a console that had previously only been rumoured to exist. It sent shockwaves through the industry – clearly, with a price of $299/£249, Microsoft were not playing around. And mere minutes ago, we saw […]

Kickstarter: HoverGrease

I’m always impressed by the ingenuity, tenacity and general inventiveness of small indie teams. HoverGrease – which is currently seeking funds on Kickstarter – is, almost unbelievably, the work of a two person team, Altergaze. Having already been in development for two and a half years, the team need some assistance to get the game over the finish line. The […]

Music Review: Chromeo – Quarantine Casanova EP

I first became aware of cheeky retro-electro funk duo Chromeo in 2007 at a British festival called The Big Chill. For a number of years back then, I used to attend that particular festival with a group of close friends; it was small but grew to a decent enough size that it attracted some phenomenal acts – and it was […]

Kickstarter: BRZRKR

Keanu Reeves has undergone an absolutely incredible career renaissance in recent years, with the John Wick films shooting him into stratospheric heights of popularity that he hasn’t seen since the first Matrix movie way back in 1999. And why not? It’s about time; Reeves is reportedly one of the nicest and most down to earth people working in movies today, […]

Comic Book Review: 2000AD Regened

Regular readers of the blog – and my Twitter followers – can’t have failed to notice that I’ve been covering an awful lot of 2000AD-related material over the past few months. It started on my birthday, when I purchased a copy of the latest Judge Dredd Megazine as a treat to myself; it wasn’t long before thrill-power took over once […]

Board Game Review: Marvel Villainous: Infinite Power

It’s hard to believe that Ravensburger’s excellent Disney Villainous has only been around since 2018. A game in which players each take the role of a different Disney villain, it’s already seen numerous expansions which can be played without the base game or by combining any of the villains from any set to compete in a struggle to be the […]

Comic Book Review: The Ballad of Halo Jones: Volume 2

Having recently reviewed the first volume of Alan Moore and Ian Gibson’s classic series, it was only a matter of time before I reacquainted myself with the continuing chronicles of Halo Jones – and, as with the first volume, it’s been an absolute joy to rediscover the series and experience it all over again, several decades later. The second volume […]
