Book Review: ‘My Best Friend’s Exorcism’

by Chris Cummings

Written by Grady Hendrix | Published by Quirk Books I was a huge fan of Grady Hendrix’s previous novel, Horrorstor, a ghost story set in an Ikea-like superstore. It took a genre and spun it on its head, changed things and made something fresh out of a well-trodden genre. I was very excited about his […]

‘WWE Extreme Rules 2016′ Review

by Chris Cummings

WWE’s annual Extreme Rules PPV always finds itself full of gimmick matches such as table matches, ladder matches, street fights and things of that nature, so it’s no surprise that the 2016 version of Extreme Rules is also full of these types of matches. Sometimes it can result in overkill, other times it can result […]

‘Game of Thrones 6×06: Blood of My Blood’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“It’s not an easy thing, admitting to yourself who you really are.” Fanatics, dragonriders, face-peeling assassins, and the walking dead. ‘Blood of My Blood’, the sixth episode of Game of Thrones‘ riveting sixth season, spent its hour marrying intimate moments of introspection to towering spectacle as deftly as the High Sparrow facilitated his erasure of the […]

‘Dark Souls #2′ Review (Titan Comics)

by Dean Fuller

Written by George Mann | Art by Alan Quah | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp The first issue of this book was something of a curiosity to me.

‘Overwatch’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

Overwatch is a game that I feel I am somewhat obsessed with right now. I’ve had my eye on it for a while, becoming jealous of the people lucky enough to be in the Closed Beta. Then when the Open Beta came around I played it on both PC and PlayStation 4 finding it fun […]

‘Total War: Warhammer’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

I’ve always been a fan of the Total War games, but found myself drifting away from them after Empire: Total War. As a fantasy fan though, Total War: Warhammer pulled me back in somewhat, especially with the trailers which showed the epic battles of humanity and the creatures of the Old World. Was this a […]

‘Game of Thrones 6×05: The Door’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Hodor.” It feels strange to learn something so grave and so terrible in a scene less than a minute long. The Children of the Forest made their own destroyers, sacrificing men on the roots of their heart trees and giving them a new and awful life as the White Walkers, a bitter sword forged to […]

‘Doom’ Review (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

There are probably people in the gaming world that don’t understand the importance of Doom and the way it changed the face of shooting games. Sure, Wolfenstein 3D may have been the first, but it was merely a prototype of what was to come. With this in mind, does the new Doom live up to […]
