‘Star Trek: Discovery 1×14 – The War Without, The War Within’ Review

Now that the Discovery is back from the Mirrorverse I’m sure I’m not the only one that wanted to see the return of Lorca (Jason Isaacs). It seems if that is going to happen we’ll have to wait, as this week’s Star Trek: Discovery decides to focus on the small issue of taking on the […]

by Jason Brigger

Stars: Cress Williams, China Anne McClain, Nafessa Williams, Christine Adams | Developed by Salim Akil Black Lightning’s third episode is more focused on character building than it is world building, resulting in an episode that doesn’t stand out as much as the first two episodes in the series.

‘Sol: Last Days of a Star’ Board Game Review

by Matthew Smail

As far as board games are concerned, I am a real sucker for a strong theme, particularly when the mechanical elements of the game – however strange – feel well integrated with the overarching game world. A great theme can be spoiled by poorly aligned rules, whilst a standalone set of mechanics is rarely going […]

‘InnerSpace’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Matthew Smail

With the still-painful memory of No Man’s Sky still firmly embedded in the cerebral cortex of many gamers, InnerSpace seems destined for a rough ride and possibly, a hard landing. Billed as the latest flight-exploration game and produced by relative newcomers PolyKnight Games, Innerspace has at the very least avoided the same kind of ridiculous […]
