‘Doomwatch: Series 1-3 – The Remaining Episodes’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

If the BBC realised how beloved their old shows would become, they might have taken greater care of them. And while Doomwatch: Series 1-3 – The Remaining Episodes may not feature every episode of the show thanks to the BBC’s archiving issues, it still stands up as a very good boxset. For fans of the […]

‘Better Call Saul 2×08: Fifi’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Oh, and point me to your best copier.” Better Call Saul is a filmmaker’s delight, a showcase for more cinematic tricks and techniques than most major motion pictures. Director Larysa Kondracki brings us into ‘Fifi’ with a continuous four-minute shot following a smuggler across the Mexican border, through customs, and into the embrace of the […]

‘Vinyl 1×08: E.A.B.’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“That’s a skeleton. Everybody’s got one.” There’s a good show buried somewhere inside the increasingly clunky heap that is Vinyl, a program currently wasting what has to be the steeliest performance of Olivia Wilde’s career in between leaden celebrity lookalikes and unexceptional scenes of rock ‘n roll bravado. ‘E.A.B’ has moments of fun, from a great opening […]

‘Dark Age’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Don’t you want to come into the sunlight?” Julia Gfrörer’s Dark Age is an anxiously intimate comic. Bookended by starkly sexual images of cave formations, the slim pink volume follows two young lovers living in a pristine wilderness near the dawn of humanity. One day, frustrated by the antics of their peers, they descend into a cave […]

by Phil Wheat

You know there are times when a review code from a PR company or distributor just won’t do. You HAVE to have a physical copy of the game for your own. This is one of those times…. Having been exposed to the Senran Kagura franchise via the two Nintendo 3DS games, I was eagerly awaiting […]

‘Stikbold! A Dodgeball Adventure’ Review (PS4)

Dodgeball is a game that should work quite well as a video game but with games becoming more complex and offering more, is throwing a little ball at people going to catch people’s interest? Stikbold! A Dodgeball Adventure is an answer to that question and a pleasantly positive one… In the Story Mode you play […]

First Impressions: ‘Doom’ Closed Beta (PS4)

by Paul Metcalf

I’m probably showing my age when I remember the hype around the original Doom. While Wolfenstein 3D was the first-person shooter that made an impression, it was Doom that really made the genre explode – by not only throwing the blood around in a glorious explosion of brutality but brought multiplayer gaming into the mix […]

“It’s exactly what I would have done.” So that’s where his suits come from. Jimmy’s odious wardrobe, part of a calculated campaign of self-sabotage meant to force Cliff Main into firing him without cause so that he can keep his fat corporate signing bonus, are a master class in how to connect the dots between […]
