by Alain Elliott

Stars: Brock O’Hurn, Michelle Randolph, Bianca Haase, Michael Vlamis, Avery Pascual, Joaquin Veizaga | Written and Directed by Taylor Chien I’m sure I’m very wrong but it feels like there are about a dozen low budget horror movies with the title ‘The Resort’ and this one 2021 is the latest one.

‘The Mysterious Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde’ Review (Switch)

by Alain Elliott

One of the reasons I was most looking forward to playing The Mysterious Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde was because it is a genre of game I have never really played. Although I have my favourite genres I’m not the type of gamer that will just stick to a few. Platformers, racers, sports, […]

‘Future Aero Racing S Ultra’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

by Alain Elliott

As soon as you mention futuristic racer and video games a couple of franchises come straight to mind to many players. For some it will be Wipeout, which started out on Playstation but for those Nintendo lovers like myself, their minds will go straight to F-Zero. A franchise that hasn’t had a new game in […]
