‘Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Before I start this review of Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide, I should probably say that I’m not a huge Warhammer fan though it always intrigues me, and I dip into many of its games. What I am though is a fan of trying out new experiences. This is why I took part in the beta, […]

‘Doctor Who: 9×07 – The Zygon Invasion’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

After The Woman Who Lived I was hoping that Doctor Who would bounce back with an interesting episode. Doctor Who: 9×07 – The Zygon Invasion is another beginning for a two parter, which holds a lot of promise, though a few plot holes manage to weaken its impact. With a fragile peace between the Humans […]

‘Gravity Falls 2×18: Weirdmageddon Part I’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Fighting children is boring. Fighting a Chaos God sounds fun!” I’d bet good money that the storyboard for ‘Weirdmageddon Part I’ just reads “take it to the wall.” It’s twenty jam-packed minutes of phantasmagorical horror and oddness with an extended Road Warrior homage, Louis C. K. as a hapless and ravenous giant head with an arm growing out the […]

Hell in a Cell is a pay per view that has spawned some classic WWE matches over the years. But since the end of the Attitude Era, and in particular the more “hardcore” style of wrestling, the idea of two men fighting in a cage seems to have lost steam within the company. Especially in […]
