‘Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty’ Review (Xbox One)

by Phil Wheat

It’s fair to say as a gamer I was VERY late to the joys of a Sony-made console. I didn’t own a Playstation until the release of the smaller form-factor PSOne, which coincided with the launch of the PS2. But that didn’t stop me from voraciously collecting and playing a whole heap of original Playstation […]

‘Scarlett Couture #1′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written and Drawn by Des Taylor | Published by Titan Comics | Format: Paperback, 32pp Although I am familiar with artist/ illustrator Des Taylor, mainly through his fantastic retro Superman illustrations, I have not seen his work in a honest-to-goodness sequential art comic book before so approached this offering from Titan Comics with some excitement. […]

‘Steven Universe S02E07: Love Letters’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

Garnet: “Start with the letter N.” Connie: “Huh, okay.  What next?” Garnet: “The letter O.” Steven Universe giving love at first sight the brushoff feels kind of shaky just a few weeks after the show waxed rhapsodical about it in ‘Story for Steven.’  Granted, Jaime the Mailman cuts an especially dismissable figure with his overblown confessions of […]

‘Chappelle’s Show: The Series Collection’ DVD Review

by Phil Wheat

When YouTube was created I’m sure the plan wasn’t for people to watch bite sized amounts of comedy picking up the best skits from television shows from all over the world, but this is one way that I tend to watch the funniest comedians, and it was the first time I’ve really seen any of […]

‘Fifty Shades of Erotica’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

When Fifty Shades of Erotica was announced it was obvious that the release was timed to gain some exposure from the release of Fifty Shades of Grey, maybe even gain some purchases from the fans looking to branch out into the world of the naughty.  There are other audiences for the DVD though, and not just those […]

‘Bloodsports.TV’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

I’ll admit that I’m not the most sociable of gamer, I’d rather play solo and concentrate on my own game, building up progress and enjoying things at my own pace.  There are games that push for co-operative play and create addictive chaos to push unsociable people like me into playing with friends.  Bloodsports.TV is one […]

‘Come Under My Spell / Lady Dynamite’ Review (Vinegar Syndrome)

by Mondo Squallido

COME UNDER MY SPELL (dir: Carlos Tobalina, 1979) “The film that will bring you up to a joy you’re paying for!” The film opens up in hip and swinging San Fransisco and instantly we are introduced to some heavy student action. Before the memories of university life get the better of me (yeah right!), we […]

WWE RAW: Results & Review (20.4.15)

by Chris Cummings

We are a couple of weeks removed, now, from WrestleMania, and we are heading towards WWE’s next PPV, Extreme Rules. The WWE product hasn’t really changed a great deal since a month ago, except for Brock Lesnar no longer being WWE Champion and taking time-off, and different feuds being underway. Mostly though, on television, it’s […]

‘Nekro’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

Early Access games can be a risky purchase, the gamer either has the chance to get a glimpse at an up and coming game, allowing them to give feedback to the developer on what can make it better or what doesn’t work, or it show them a glimpse at something destined to fail, at worst […]

‘Game of Thrones 5×02: The House of Black and White’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Now matter how many times you call her “mhysa,” she is nobody’s mother.” Being a woman in Westeros is a raw deal.  Whether you’re a lowly wildling or a queen you’re going to live under the constant threat of abuse, war, kidnapping, and worse.  No matter how high women climb, no matter how hard they […]

‘Mad Men 7×10: The Forecast’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“They love the lobby, but the emptiness is a problem.” Mad Men very nearly pipes in a cymbal crash after Don’s real estate broker delivers her withering assessment of his empty penthouse.  What she’s talking about, of course, is Don, and there’s no shortage of people lining up to inform him that he’s a smooth, good-looking huckster […]
