Stars: Rose McIver, Malcolm Goodwin, Rahul Kohli, Robert Buckley, David Anders | Created by Diane Ruggiero, Rob Thomas Season 5 got off to a great start last week but iZombie falters with its second episode where it feels like they’re trying to do too much, too soon.

‘Life is Strange 2 – Episode 3: Wastelands’ Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

It’s been over three months since the last Life is Strange 2 episode. The long wait times between episodes is guaranteed to test the patience of many gamers. The reasoning for these long breaks is to make each episode the best it possibly can be when it’s released. Episode 2 was fine but it’s debatable […]

Stars: Rose McIver, Malcolm Goodwin, Rahul Kohli, Robert Buckley, David Anders | Created by Diane Ruggiero, Rob Thomas iZombie has had an interesting evolution over the past four years.

‘Kingdom Hearts 3′ Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

I’m going to say the same thing every fan has said by now, but we’ve been waiting over a decade for Kingdom Hearts III. I doubt I’m the only one to have grown up in the time it has taken for this game to release. Sure, we’ve had story continuation since Kingdom Hearts II and […]

‘Resident Evil 2′ [Remake] Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

The Resident Evil series has an interesting history. It’s arguably the game that defined the survival horror genre but the previous decade for the series has had a few hit-or-miss entries. However, Resident Evil 7 took things back to their roots and ended up being the best game in the series in years. This remake […]

‘Life is Strange 2 – Episode 2: Rules’ Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

It’s been a long wait for Episode 2. After the amazing debut, the expectations were running high so did ‘Rules’ deliver and prove to be worth the wait or did the momentum come to a halt? Life is Strange 2 – Episode 2: Rules takes place one month after the events of Roads. Sean and Daniel have […]

‘Life is Strange 2 – Episode 1: Roads’ Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

If I had to sum up my experiences with the previous Life is Strange installments. I would say that I liked it but I didn’t love it. I went into the second main entry with the same expectations and by the end of Roads, I ended up thinking that this was the experience the internet […]

‘The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit’ Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

With the new episode of Life is Strange 2 ‘Rules’ getting closer to its release, it makes sense to review the prequel to it: The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit. This DLC came out long before we knew anything about Life is Strange 2 so playing it again after playing through the first episode of LiS2 […]

‘Punchline’ Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

Before we get to the meat of the review, I feel like I have to add that I have nothing against visual novels. I’ve watched visual novel animes. I have liked a few of them quite a lot but before Punchline, I had never played a proper visual novel game. Something tells me that this […]

‘Soul Calibur VI’ Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

Soul Calibur VI had a lot riding on its success. Soul Calibur 5 was blasted for its weak story and how it replaced popular characters with not so great successors (if you can call them that). There were some people ready to declare the series as dead after its long absence. The decision was made […]

Streamers Connected at MCM Comic Con London 2018

Who are Streamers Connected? The best way to describe them is they are an international community of streamers. It’s a community that has grown very quickly as it was founded in August 2017 and what they have achieved in over a year is impressive to say the least. Since their launch, their Discord now has […]

MCM London Oct 2018: Nolan North & Richard McGonagle Interview

by Xenia Grounds

What’s the hardest thing about playing an alien? Richard: Well, it depends on which show. The hardest part is going back to being a human again, I think, because we’re not an alien usually. Are you able to go back into your own voice easily? Richard: No, it’s pretty easy. A voice like that if […]

‘Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’ Review (PS4)

by Xenia Grounds

My experience with Assassin’s Creed is pretty limited. I’ve only played Syndicate in full but I have paid attention to reactions to the series. I’m aware that not every Assassin’s Creed game has been a hit but the same could be said for every series that runs for a long time. The question is: Is Assassin’s […]
