‘Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #3.7′ Review

by Dean Fuller

It’s one of those classic sci-fi tropes that never gets old. Rather like Dr Who itself really. […]

‘Splatoon 2′ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Rupert Harvey

It’s only been a couple of years since Splatoon washed up on Wii U and became an instant cult hit. A very, very Nintendo take on the arena shooter, it didn’t involve regular “killing”. Rather, the player controlled an Inkling: a humanoid creature with an arsenal of superpowered paintball weapons. The paint could destroy NPCs […]

‘Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age’ Review (PS4)

by Matthew Smail

When the re-release of Final Fantasy XII was announced, I really began to wonder if I had been living under a rock at the time of the original release, way back in 2006. I’ve always been a huge Final Fantasy fan, and I love FF VII, VIII, IX, X and X-2. What I really don’t know, upon reflection, is why I never played XII. There […]
