‘Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

If there is one genre of game that has pulled me in now I review games, it has to be the JRPG. While they tend to consume a lot of time, they tend to be full of lore, and drag you into a zany story. While sometimes they may not deliver, when they do they […]

‘The Bureau: Complete Season Two’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

When I reviewed season one of The Bureau I enjoyed the shows more realistic feel when it came to the French intelligence services. Now with the release of The Bureau: Complete Season Two the story continues, with Guillaume Debailly (Mathieu Kassovitz) once again trying to pull the wool over his colleague’s eyes. Still connected with the […]

‘Doctor Who 10×01: The Pilot’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

With the knowledge that Peter Capaldi is set to leave, and we also have a new companion, I will admit I was worried about the latest series of Doctor Who. With a name like The Pilot though, that insinuates a brand-new start for this show, but is this the names only meaning? The Doctor (Peter […]
