‘Mulholland Drive’ Blu-ray Review

by Rupert Harvey

Stars: Naomi Watts, Laura Harring, Justin Theroux, Ann Miller | Written and Directed by David Lynch Re-released to coincide with the new Twin Peaks series, it’s apt that Mulholland Drive was originally conceived as a TV pilot. Perhaps it’s for the best it ended up in (relatively) short form. The film, weighing in at 2.5 […]

‘Anno Dracula 1895: Seven Days in Mayhem #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Kim Newman | Art by Paul McCaffrey | Published by Titan Comics This has been great fun so far, a nice blend of interesting story, familiar though slightly different literary characters, and a whole load of alternate universe world building. Hugely entertaining stuff. This series pretty much had me at Queen Victoria marrying […]

‘Portal Knights’ Review (PS4)

When games are inspired by others, they often fight to get out of their shadow. Portal Knights is a game that has two shadows to try to escape from, both Minecraft and Dark Souls. The question is, should it have to? Portal Knights is a new cooperative action RPG game where you pick to be […]

‘Seasons After Fall’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

To keep platform games fresh, many focus more on the puzzle element rather than killing the character with endless monsters looking for blood. Seasons After Fall is one of those games that uses the puzzle element more, and provides a nice relaxing walk through the seasons. The best way to go into the game is […]

‘Twin Peaks: Season 3 – Episodes 1 & 2′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Twin Peaks is finally back, and yes as almost every review is probably saying, it is worth the wait. What we have though is something a little different from the Twin Peaks we know. This is David Lynch giving us his full vision, and while special, don’t expect to understand everything you see. In many […]

‘Freeway Fighter #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Andi Ewington | Art by Simon Coleby | Published by Titan Comics I’m sure all of us of a certain age remember the Fighting Fantasy books series. I still have few on my nostalgia bookshelf in fact. Before the internet, social media, and online gaming, there weren’t that many avenues for escapism (I […]

‘Renowned Explorers’ & ‘The Emperor’s Challenge DLC’ Review (PC)

by Matthew Smail

Full disclosure: I’ve enjoyed my time with Renowned Explorers much more than I thought that I would. This charming, beautiful and deceptively detailed adventure game is everything that makes independently developed games such a rich and diverse source of engaging content. I say that because being a little bit frank, there’s a lot of goodness […]

‘Doctor Who 10×06: Extremis’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

If there is one problem with Doctor Who it is that things tend to stay the same, and we see nothing really that new. What we’ve needed is something to shake up the status quo. Extremis was promised to be a big episode, but the result was something of a refreshing surprise that many won’t […]

‘Syberia 3′ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

I remember the first two Syberia games for the fairly strong story and the fact that they were good point & click adventures when there seemed to be no others around. That was about thirteen years ago though, and now Syberia 3 has arrived to carry on the story, but is it worth the wait? […]

‘Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #3.5′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by James Peaty | Art by Warren Pleece | Published by Titan Comics All change from last issue as we have another of those ‘interlude’ issues, where a different creative team fill in on the book for an issue.
