Film Review: Star Trek III: The Search For Spock (1984)

Though the Star Trek movies got off to a shaky start with the first film – The Motion Picture, which I reviewed here – the second film was an absolutely spectacular romp, full of high stakes action, superb writing and excellent character development. It ended on a pseudo-cliffhanger too, with the death of Spock. Despite Leonard Nimoy’s apparent desire for […]

Review: Ski Sniper

Version Played: Switch – Out Now (£4.49/$4.99) Imagine Sniper Elite, only instead of sniping the testicles of German soldiers you’re shooting at skiers. And instead of being able to roam expansive levels, sniping at targets in whatever order you choose, generally at your own pace, instead you’re in a fixed position with only a few seconds to hit a fast […]

Version Played: Switch – Price: $7.99/£TBC I first played and reviewed Depixtion last year, albeit on PC. I’m pleased to say that it’s as good on Switch as it was […]

Oivo Switch VR Headset

I was asked to check out Oivo’s Switch VR Headset (disclaimer: they provided me with a unit to review) and I’m pleased to say that it’s a robust and comfortable alternative to Nintendo’s cardboard Labo headset, with the added advantage of the user not being required to hold it in place. The only thing that lets it down is something […]

Review: Dungeon Adventure

Price: Free – Available via Amazon Alexa-enabled devices – Website Though there’s a lot of privacy-related concerns surrounding voice activated, always connected tech (which are more than justified, I might add), there’s some incredibly cool features that few people may know about, let alone even try. I’m not sure where or how I stumbled upon the idea of playing RPGs […]

Board Game Review: Exit: The Haunted Rollercoaster

I’ve written about the Exit games before, but never about a specific game from the rather extensive range that’s currently available. There’s a reason for that; as Escape Room-esque experiences that you can only play once, they rely on players knowing as little as possible before they start the game. This makes it extremely difficult to talk about each one […]

Review: Wanderlust Travel Stories

Version Played: Switch – Price: £13.49/$14.99 – Published by Forever Entertainment – Release Date: 27th Feb 2020 Even if you’ve played visual novels before, it’s probably fair to say that you’re unlikely to have played anything quite like Wanderlust: Travel Stories.   The narrative – or narratives, given that you’ll encounter the stories of more than one character as you […]

Film Review: Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982)

Note: My review of the first film in the Star Trek series (Star Trek: The Motion Picture) can be found here. There’s an absolutely fascinating history behind the second Star Trek movie (it’s far too long to recount at length here, but I’d urge you to check out the film’s Wikipedia page even if you’re not a Trek fan – […]
