‘Hannibal 3×11: …And the Beast From the Sea’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“I don’t know what will happen in the house.” Motion and stillness are one, life and death are mirrors of each other, and to oppose your enemy is to be united with him. Hannibal has always been interested in blurring the boundaries between concepts, and between people, both in the minds of its addled characters and for […]

‘Dobble’ Review

by Phil Wheat

Everyone loves a good board game right? Although these days it seems more are likely to play board games on their tablets – myself included. After all who doesn’t love a good game of Carcassone on the iPad? It’s great time-filler and it’s a lot easier than cracking out all the pieces for ‘one quick […]

‘iBeani’ Review

by Phil Wheat

The tablet, a wonderous invention that has – at least in my household – become de rigueur for the bedroom. Neither myself or my other half go to sleep without either reading a book or, especially in my case, watching the odd online video. But you know what sucks about tablets, especially when your lying […]

‘Monster Truck Destruction’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Maybe I’ve been spoilt by the choice of games I play on my PC, but I tend to expect a certain quality. I’ve played games on the platform for years, all the way back to the pre-DirectX days. This may be why I took such a disinterest to Monster Truck Destruction. When I started to […]

‘Review 2×03: Falsely Accused, Sleep With Your Teacher, Little Person’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“The farther you go, the smaller you get.” There can be no question as to whether or not Forrest’s journey to review life’s wonders and horrors is one of attrition. Piece by piece, bite by bite, Thursday by Thursday, Forrest MacNeil is dying before our eyes. The episode’s third act literally diminishes Forrest, first placing him […]
