‘Heroes of the Monkey Tavern’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Rupert Harvey

What will gradually dawn on you about Heroes of the Monkey Tavern is what it doesn’t contain. No item wear; no exterior environments (in fact, very little variation in environments at all); no ammo counters; no gameplay variation; and no real story to speak of. It opens with a static painting of the titular tavern. […]

by Phil Wheat

I’ve been playing WWE video games all my life – from the early days of the NES and the likes of Wrestlemania Challenge, through a myriad of consoles and handhelds, to as recently as WWE 2K16 on the PS4; and in that time the games have changed a LOT. So, after decades of change, why […]

‘Rogue Trooper Redux’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Phil Wheat

Originally released in 2006 and earning two BAFTA nominations for Best Character and Best Story, Rogue Trooper was one of the undiscovered gems of the PS2 – and for those gamers that played it, it still remains one of the best comic book, nay licensed, games on Sony’s console EVER. Technically (literally, from a technological […]

‘Cat Quest’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Paul Metcalf

If there is one thing that will get people’s attention on the Iinternet it’s cute cats. This is why when I loaded up Cat Quest I was a little worried about what I would find. To my surprise what I was presented with was a game that has the right level of nostalgia, and as […]

‘Dan Dare #2′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Peter Milligan | Art by Alberto Foche | Published by Titan Comics I always think Dan Dare, rather like Captain America and Superman, is a victim of his own iconic status. He’s great as a symbol, as a painted cover or on a poster, but when it comes to putting him in good […]

‘Offensive Combat Redux!’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

With the release of Call of Duty: WWII we spend a lot of time trying to stay alive, be a skillful player and grind our way up to better weapons and scorestreaks. That can be serious stuff, especially once ranked games begin. What about a first-person shooter that just wants to be funny, and just […]

‘American Horror Story – Cult 7×10: Charles (Manson) in Charge’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Charles Manson is a cult leader that is arguably the most entrenched in pop culture than the others. This is why American Horror Story: Cult probably saved him as the most influential on Kai (Evan Peters). The problem with this of course is that when Manson’s crimes are so well-known, American Horror Story struggles to […]
