TV Review: The Toys That Made Us

I reviewed a single episode of Netflix series The Toys That Made Us recently (the one covering Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) and found it to be full of interesting details about how the turtles became such a phenomenon. What I found most intriguing was just how much of what we know about the franchise – what we perhaps take as […]

Review: Stars Rush

Available on itch.io (works in browser and on mobile) There’s nothing groundbreaking or revolutionary about Stars Rush. It’s a cute little game – that’ll work in your browser or just […]

Weekly Round-Up

Just as yesterday was the first time in a long time that I’ve looked at my recent Game Pass Adventures, I’ve not done a round up of my articles for quite a while either. It’s always useful for me to take a look back at what I’ve covered too, because I seem to be able to cover quite a bit […]

Board Game Review: Star Wars: Empire vs Rebellion

I’m a few days late with this one, considering that Star Wars Day was on Monday – but I thought it was well worth covering anyway. A small card game with a surprising amount of theme and playability, Star Wars: Empire vs Rebellion is a relatively straightforward battle between two players for control of events that have occurred throughout the […]

Weekly Round-Up

It’s been a while since I’ve done a round up of articles, but I’ve covered quite a bit of ground this week and even managed to finish off the original Gears of War trilogy too. Thanks COVID-19!

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 […]

Film Review: Solo – A Star Wars Story (2018)

The risk of making huge budget movies can sometimes be a gamble worthy of beloved Corellian chancer Han Solo himself. However, there were – until recently – not many franchises more set for success than Star Wars, so a prequel movie covering the early years of Han Solo was seen as the closest thing there is in Hollywood to a […]

Bad Lip Reading: Star Wars Edition

As a bonus to pick you up after all yesterday’s disappointing gaming news, how about checking out Bad Lip Reading on YouTube? I am so late to the party for this. Though I’d seen a Bad Lip Reading video before – Redneck Avengers – and thought it was both clever and hilarious, I hadn’t stumbled upon their songs; one of […]

Happy Star Wars Day!

Star Wars is one of those pop culture franchises that, for me, has always been around. My birth was perfectly timed for this; I arrived in the world just a few weeks after Star Wars did – though it didn’t arrive in the UK until I was a little over six months old. Pictured below is the queue around the […]
