Kickstarter Spotlight: RalphGame

Kickstarter Link here Currently seeking backers on Kickstarter, action RPG RalphGame is looking very promising indeed. Despite old school pixel art visuals, the gameplay is very modern in its design, with an open ended nature that allows you to play however you decide to. I found it very intriguing that no non-story based battles are obligatory, meaning that most battles […]

Review Roundup – Gears of War

I’ve threatened/promised to cover a series of films or games from beginning to end on a number of occasions, but as of now the only complete (so far at least) film series I’ve managed to complete is Jurassic Park/World – but I’ve also recently completed my series of Gears of War game reviews too (aside from Judgment, which isn’t a […]

Review: Gears of War 4

Note: as with my other Gears of War reviews, I’ve not checked out the vast and popular suite of multiplayer options; my thoughts here are based on the campaign alone. As the first post-Epic Games, post-Xbox 360 and post-original trilogy Gears of War entry, Gears of War 4 had an awful lot to prove. Could it work without Cliffy B’s […]

TV Review: The Mandalorian

When I first heard about The Mandalorian, I have to say I was concerned that a live action series simply wouldn’t be able to pull off a convincing dive into the Star Wars universe on a TV show budget. Not only that, but I felt that the focus on a Bona Fett-esque character would simply be looking to capitalise on […]

Review: Gears of War 3

Despite the fact that I played through the original Gears of War back when it was first released in 2006, I was never a fan. The gameplay felt way too linear and predictable, the story was full of unintentionally hilarious moments that were supposed to be badass (not to mention the smirk inducing, accidental homoeroticism), the visuals – while technically […]

Review: Gears of War 2

When I reviewed Gears of War: Ultimate Edition last year, I mentioned that I was going to try and work my way through the Gears series in order, though due to a number of different reasons it’s taken me a lot longer than I anticipated to continue the journey. One of those reasons – which you’ll know if you read […]

Review: Panzer Dragoon: Remake

Available Now on Switch – £22.49 – Developed by: Megapixel Studio SA – Published by: Forever Entertainment The original Panzer Dragoon was a launch title (in the West, at least) for the Saturn, Sega’s ultimately ill-fated 32-bit console. It was lauded upon release for it’s impressive presentation, with some very impressive (for the time) pre-rendered cinematic sequences and fast-paced on-rails […]

Pecaminosa – Crowdfunding Campaign Launch

Though I’ve shone a spotlight on Pecaminosa a few times before, the game’s Indiegogo campaign is live as of today – so it’s a great opportunity to spread the word of this wonderful looking game once more. Billed as a ‘Pixel Noir’ game, Pecaminosa is a game that has definitely had my attention for a long time now. Dripping in […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]
