Zavvi’s ‘Heist Collection’ – Launch Report

by Phil Wheat

It was a dark and stormy night on the crime-ridden streets of Gotham as we made our way… Actually it was more like a drizzly Monday evening on the streets of Manchester, where we made our way to a secret location a few minutes walk from Market Street to take part in a special preview […]

‘NXT UK’ Review (Oct 10th 2019)

Welcome to this week’s NXT UK review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we have the WWE’s rip-off version of Progress/OTT/World Of Sport (the good version)/Insane Championship Wrestling (if you squint real hard) stumbling along helplessly like Mark Wahlberg in San Francisco’s “Rainbow District”.

‘The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Chris Cummings

I grew up as a Sega kid, but always loved playing the Nintendo first-party original titles, and when I got a Gameboy at the end of the 80s I was immediately hooked. The Legend of Zelda is one of those Nintendo titles that just screams quality and has since 1987 when the very first Zelda […]

by Dean Fuller

Written by Warren Ellis | Art by Bryan Hitch, Kevin Nowlan | Published by DC Comics This was impossible to not pick up.

WWE Network Original: ‘The Bump S01E02′ Review

by Chris Cummings

The Bump debuted last week, a new TMZ/After Buzz feeling chat-show style program that goes out on YouTube, social-media and the WWE Network each week. I reviewed it here and spoke about how much I liked it, appreciated the fresh feel and new concept, and thought it worked well in an age where FOX is […]

Stars: Divine, Tab Hunter, Edith Massey, David Samson, Mary Garlington, Ken King | Written and Directed by John Waters After his prolific 1970s, enfant terrible John Waters directed only two films in the 1980s, at each end of the decade.

‘BurgerTime Party!’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Britt Roberts

A fun little game that is best played with friends in a ‘dip in and out’ way, if you are a fan of the original BurgerTime (Data East, 1982), this literally plays like a remastered version with multiplayer added. Good. For those not familiar with this niche food-related genre of gaming, the main gameplay loop […]

‘WWE NXT’ Review (Oct 9th 2019)

by Nathan Favel

Welcome to this week’s NXT review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and Chicken Kabobs are pretty damn good. On LA Law, a man eats his wife’s face…with hilarious consequences!

‘Ring of Honor’ Wrestling Review (Oct 6th 2019)

by Nathan Favel

Welcome to this week’s Ring Of Honor review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we have…no actual matches. What we have are extended clips from the lucha libre stars of CMLL, which means that the ROH TV editors didn’t listen to a word I said last week. Well, they probably don’t read these […]

‘King and Assassins’ Board Game Review

by Matthew Smail

When it comes to engaging strategic board games, some of the most exciting, intense experiences available can be found when two players face off head to head. Some games are able to accommodate multiple players and yet still appeal to a competitive pairing, but in general, the most satisfying duels are had when a game […]

‘Diablo 3′ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Chris Thomas

The PC / video games market is a strange beast. Once a game is released with huge fanfare, it immediately withers on the vine and as the lustre of those shiny treats dims, we can see significant price cuts after only a week or so on the market. There is always something new, something that […]
