Life is Strange 2: Awkward, Relatable and Open-Minded on Sexuality

by Xenia Grounds

WARNING: Spoilers ahead for Life is Strange 2 and Life is Strange. I’ll cut straight to the chase. I think Life is Strange 2 explores sexuality and sex incredibly well to an almost painfully relatable degree. It’s so honest with its approach but still manages to be very touching in the way it handles the subject […]

Retrospective: The Lion King (1994)

by Xenia Grounds

WARNING: I expect it’s unlikely but if you haven’t seen The Lion King then this retrospective contains massive spoilers. To say that The Lion King is a classic Disney movie feels like an understatement. It’s widely considered one of the best movies that Disney has ever made. When it comes to the films made during […]

Retrospective: 500 Days of Summer

by Xenia Grounds

Movies. Music. Television. Video Games. Animation. If there is one theme that all these mediums have explored, then it would be: Love. Many of us are brought up on this idea of ‘The One’. However, when we start to enter actual romantic relationships, we learn that romances are rarely like the movies and songs we’ve […]

The Retro Replay Live Experience @ MCM – May 2019

by Xenia Grounds

I remember watching the first episode of Retro Replay so clearly. I had just woken up at 7am on a Friday morning. Barely awake, I shuffled straight to the kitchen to make some coffee, grab breakfast, turned on a television and put on some Retro Replay. By the end of it, I was trying not […]

by Xenia Grounds

You know the first sign that you’re heading in the correct direction for Comic Con? It’s normally seeing a train full of cosplayers and it’s one of the only times where you can strike up a conversation with a group of strangers without that typical British awkwardness. I have missed Comic Con since October and […]

‘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 […]

‘Kingdom Hearts 3′ Review (PS4)

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 […]

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.

‘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 […]
