‘The Vanishing of Ethan Carter’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Adventure games tend to have a set narrative, they like to guide you by the hand and lead you through the scenes to make sure you are doing things right and not deviating from the set path.  This has worked ever since the origins of computer games, right back to text-based adventures so why change […]

‘The Wind Rises’ Blu-ray Review

by Paul Metcalf

Knowing a film is to be Hayao Miyazaki’s last is something you don’t really want to hear, but The Wind Rises shows why he is such a master of his art.  Studio Ghibli is a company that I regard as being the best at what they do, and that is no small thing when you […]

‘WWE Battleground 2014′ DVD Review

by Nicky Johnson

As one of WWE’s B pay per views, you can’t really set expectations too high. Fortunately, Battleground delivered a mostly okay PPV, with some pretty awesome high points and equally disappointing lost points and bad booking.
