Review: Unspottable

Local multiplayer games are nowhere near as prevalent these days as they were in the era before online gaming. When big publishers realised that taking multiplayer gaming online meant a […]

TV Review: M.O.D.O.K.

The Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing (or M.O.D.O.K. to his friends, family and enemies) was always one of the more far out bad guys in Marvel’s comic book universe. […]

Produced by Friday the 13th’s Sean S. Cunningham for Roger Corman’s New World Pictures, written by The Monster Squad’s Fred Dekker and directed by underappreciated horror director Steve Miner (who […]

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 […]

Review: Bombfest

Available on: PC, PS4, Switch & Xbox One Though I’ve seen many gamers in recent years lament the decline of couch multiplayer titles in the last few console generations – growing up, as we did, with games such as Bomberman, Mario Kart, Goldeneye and more – it’s clear that they’re missing out on some fantastic experiences that have been available […]

Review: Donut County

I find myself increasingly bored by big scale, so-called triple-A open world collectathons in which the entire experience is diluted by endless icons dotted around gargantuan, intimidating maps. Most of […]

TV Review: Floor is Lava

I’ve always had a soft spot for sports shows where non-professional athletes get to test their prowess against outlandishly designed courses. It probably started way back in the 80s with TV shows such as The Krypton Factor, which admittedly had a fairly bog standard assault course for its contestants to overcome, but progressed with shows such as American Gladiators and […]

Preview: Unspottable

I played quite a few demos as part of the Xbox Summer Game Fest, many of which were games that I’m very keen to get my hands on when they’re released. One that had flown under the radar for me until I tried the demo was Unspottable, which is honestly one of the best local multiplayer games I’ve played in […]

Review: Totally Reliable Delivery Service

Version Played: Xbox One – Also available on: Switch, PS4, PC Though not a new phenomenon, I’ve certainly noticed the rise of chaotic, physics based sandbox games since the release – and success – of Goat Simulator. Hilariously bonkers games such as Octodad, I Am Bread and Human Fall Flat immediately spring to mind when thinking of this type of […]

Review: Pooplers

Version Played: Switch (also available on Steam) – $8.99/£8.09 – Art Games Studio SA Multiplayer party games aren’t in short supply on Switch, with lots of great titles to choose from. Pooplers is a game that had – until release – flown entirely under my radar, but it’s a surprisingly engaging experience. In the main versus mode of Pooplers, players […]

Review: Hot Date

Out now (Windows, macOS & Linux) – Price: Pay What You Want (Drop the developer a *insert local currency here* or two – it’s worth it!) Speed dating is something that has never appealed to me. I have enough awkwardness and anxiety when meeting a single person, let alone several in quick succession. So I can’t say how realistic speed […]
