‘Maid of Sker’ Review (PS4)

by Chris Cummings

Developed and published by Wales Interactive who have previously worked on games I’ve reviewed here on Nerdly such as The Complex and Soul Axiom, Maid of Sker is not unlike those games in the sense that there’s a strong story at the core of it, and everything else is secondary to a degree. This game, […]

Second Opinion: ‘The Last of Us Part 2’ Review (PS4) *SPOILERS*

by Chris Cummings

I’m not sure there’s been many more highly anticipated games in the recent history of gaming than The Last of Us Part 2. The first game was a triumph, blending horror and character-based drama to tell a story of hope, redemption, loyalty and pain. It was incredible, and it became one of the most beloved […]

Opinionated: Who is the Greatest Manager in WWE history?

Oh, wrestling manager, how I miss thee. Remember the 80s? Remember pro-wrestling during the “golden era” and the sheer amount of managers we had on our screens?

Ten Best: WrestleMania Matches of the 1980’s

by Chris Cummings

Following my list of the Ten Best WrestleMania Matches of the 1990s, I was sent down a rabbit-hole of watching every WrestleMania again and figured it might be cool to do the same for the 80s (and so-on, and so-forth). Now, the 80s doesn’t have as many matches to choose from like the 90s did, […]
