Review: Super Tennis

Available: Now (US)/ TBC (EU) – Price: $5.99/£TBC You’d be forgiven for confusing this Super Tennis with the SNES game that has the exact same title. To add to the confusion, the SNES game is even available on the Switch via Nintendo’s retro game library (itself a bonus for subscribers to the Nintendo online service). The only thing this Super […]

My First Twitterversary

Today is a special occasion, being exactly a year since I set up and used my Twitter account for the very first time. I was always very hesitant to use social media – especially with all of the seemingly endless toxicity I’d heard about in the gaming community – but I’m pleased to say that my experience has, for the […]

Jurassic Park: The TL;DR Reviews

Since I started writing again last year, I’ve made a few attempts at going back to the beginning of a game or film series and reviewing each entry in turn; for whatever reason – usually issues with having a lack of time and/or interest – these attempts have always stalled. Reviewing an entire series felt a bit unattainable to me; […]

Film Review: Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979)

I was a huge fan of sci-fi as a kid, to the point where I’d watch just about anything featuring spaceships, aliens and lasers. Star Wars is to blame; coming out the same year that I was born, it was always just there – I seemed to be around and at my most impressionable when hype was building for the […]

Preview: Transformers TCG – Titan Masters Attack

I’ve covered the Transformers TCG (Trading Card Game) a few times before; reviewing the base game and taking a look at some of the excellent expansions, for example – so when I was given some details on the newest wave of cards, I was incredibly excited to share the details. One of the things I’ve been consistently impressed with in […]

Film Review: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018)

Note: My reviews of the other films in the series can be found at these links: Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park III and Jurassic World. It took 22 years for there to be a truly satisfying sequel to the brilliant, groundbreaking Jurassic Park. When Jurassic World arrived in 2015, it had been 14 years since Jurassic […]

Book Review: Dreamcast: Year One

Pre-order: £6 Digital/£10 Physical Having celebrated its 20th anniversary last year, Sega’s final (so far, at least!) console has been much discussed online, with many people sharing their memories of the beautiful machine – myself included. The Dreamcast was way ahead of its time and burned out far too quickly, but still occupies a special place in the hearts of […]

Film Review: Jurassic World (2015)

  Note: My reviews for the first three films in the Jurassic Park series can be found here, here and here. There were four years between Jurassic Park and its first sequel, the awkwardly titled The Lost World: Jurassic Park. Another four years elapsed between that film and Jurassic Park III, which was long believed to be the last we’d […]

Board Game Review Round Up

I’ve just managed to get hold of the board game version of classic Atari arcade/console game Centipede, and it occurred to me – when discussing the game on Twitter – that it might be useful to round up some of the excellent board games I’ve already covered. The Centipede review is on the way soon, but for now – let’s […]

Preview Update: Pecaminosa

I’ve covered Pecaminosa before, but wanted to spotlight it again; it’s a hugely promising indie title that’s coming to PC this year. Described as a pixel noir RPG, it’s got a wonderful sense of style, with a wide range of influences including LA Noire, Fallout and Grim Fandango. It looks like a great mix of noir, RPG mechanics and surrealism […]

Mobile Game Review: Lab Chaos

Available Now on iOS & Android – Free (in-app purchases available) There’s a real dismissal of mobile games as ‘not real games’ or as bottomless pits of monetisation, even among those in the gaming community who would usually be considered – or consider themselves – as very open minded. Though there is an awful lot of shovelware and titles designed […]

Review: OmoTomO

Version Played: Switch – Out Now (£8.99/$9.99) – Published by: Forever Entertainment Puzzle games can go one of two ways for me; they’re either extremely frustrating or incredibly compelling. I’m pleased to report that OmoTomO falls into the latter category. A puzzle game featuring two snake-like plant creatures trying to make their way to the pots filled with water in […]
