‘Spintires: MudRunner’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

When looking for a game to play, driving around in a truck isn’t really something that would seem appealing. If you try one of the truck simulator games though, you’ll know that hours can be spent on the road just driving to each destination. Now imagine a game like that, and add lots of mud, […]

‘Doomsday Clock #1′ Review

by Dan Clark

Written by Geoff Johns | Art by Gary Frank | Published by DC Comics For many comic book fans Watchmen should be an untouchable work of art that is not interfered with by anyone. So the simple concept of Doomsday Clock will be too much to get beyond. DC has already shown they do not […]

‘Tallowmere’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Matthew Smail

As many have said before, the sheer number of indie games that have made their way onto the Nintendo Switch is simply astonishingly and at the same time, hugely promising. For indie developers, the commonly used NVidia architecture of the Switch makes converting existing games an absolute doddle, which is exactly the case for Tallowmere, an […]

‘The Problem With Apu’ Review

by Phil Wheat

The Simpsons has been hailed as one of the greatest animated TV shows in US television history; and it’s safe to say, that as a white male, I’ve never really thought of the show as anything more than a once-funny sitcom that has long-since outstayed its welcome (29 seasons? Really?). However that’s not the case […]

‘The Gifted 1×07: eXtreme Measures’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

After all the action over the last few weeks, The Gifted slows down a little. Focusing on building tension in the mutant group, and showing how far Sentinel Services are willing to go, we are now seeing a build up to a possible war. This week Eclipse (Sean Teale) must do as promised and answer […]

Review: Let’s Sing 2018 vs. We Sing Pop (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

Seemingly revitalised by the likes of Now That’s What I Call Sing and the current-gen debut(s) of Rockband and Guitar Hero, the karoke game genre has, sadly, not found the success it once had. However things picked up at the beginning of this year when not one, but THREE new karaoke games were available in […]

by Paul Metcalf

Will it end in the way we expect, or will there be some random twist that makes everything make sense? When Kai’s (Evan Peters) world comes crashing down around him, Ally (Sarah Paulson) becomes […]

‘Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus’ Review (PS4)

by Matthew Smail

“Make America Nazi Free Again.” Just one of the highly emotive straplines used to promote Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus in the past few months and certainly, it feels, the most relevant. You see, whilst it has clearly been in development for some time, MachineGames seem to have captured the current state of world politics absolutely perfectly and […]

‘Heroes of the Monkey Tavern’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Rupert Harvey

What will gradually dawn on you about Heroes of the Monkey Tavern is what it doesn’t contain. No item wear; no exterior environments (in fact, very little variation in environments at all); no ammo counters; no gameplay variation; and no real story to speak of. It opens with a static painting of the titular tavern. […]
