Project CARS

Thursday, 28 May 2015
During my time with CeX I've really enjoyed being forced to play a few racing games. Don't get me wrong, the lads and ladies at CeX don't tie me to a chair, put a gun to my head and make me play these games (*wink* wink* they do, send help please), but there have been a few times in which I've decided to review racings games, a genre I previously never enjoyed that much. So here I am again with another high profile racing game on my desk, fresh after pumping a good few hours into it. So, with ... Read More

I’m not a big fan of sports films. Hell, I’m not a big fan of sports. And I’m especially not a fan of wrestling. So, when I first heard about an ‘untitled Channing Tatum wrestling film’ in production, I put my head in my hands and expected Magic Mike 2: The Wrestling Years. I thought it was just a vehicle for Tatum to parade around topless for a couple of hours and flex his guns for the ladies. I then noticed Steve Carell was to play a part. Oh great, I thought. Tatum parading around ... Read More

The Rewrite

Tuesday, 26 May 2015
Imagine if you made a documentary about protecting endangered species, and then gave away a FREE giant panda skull with every DVD! Or if you wrote a book about saving the rainforests, and printed it on paper made entirely from Amazonian trees. You’d look, it has to be said, like a bit of a dick. Which is why it’s strange that The Rewrite, Marc Lawrence’s cliché-ridden, mediocre rom-com starring Hugh Grant, openly scoffs at other mediocre, cliché-ridden movies.Directed by Marc Lawrence ...

Puzzle & Dragons Z + Super Mario Bros. Edition

Monday, 25 May 2015
I never really got into puzzle games. Aside from a classic like Tetris, which itself I find a little boring now (I know, I suck), I've always avoided them, especially when it comes to the ones on Facebook. Whether it's Candy Crush or Bejeweled or whatever, I just don't have the time, attention or interest in them. But sometimes games pop up on this blog that pushes me to try genres I otherwise wouldn't have gotten into. When pushed to review genres I generally don't like, I've been pretty ... Read More

Get On Up

Sunday, 24 May 2015
I love biopics. You may have seen my ‘Top 5 Biopics’ article I did – that was a struggle for me, as it’s one of my favourite genres. As a music fan at heart, I’m particularly fond of ones about musicians. They can be brilliant – Control, about Ian Curtis, and Walk the Line, about Johnny Cash, are absolutely brilliant films. But for every good one, you get a shit one. Jimi: All Is By My Side, the Hendrix biopic, was dreadful. As was The Doors, about, well…do I really need to say? ... Read More

Tropico 5

Saturday, 23 May 2015
I've never played a Tropico game and this is the fifth one. In fact, I've never really heard of the franchise until back in 2011 to be perfectly honest. When Tropico 4 was released I heard about the various issues with its DLC some gamers were having. Basically, the DLC for Tropico 4 was mostly down through micro-transactions, which together became more expensive than the actual game itself. From buying a building here, quick drying cement there, to purchasing an island, it sounded like a ... Read More

Exodus: Gods and Kings

Friday, 22 May 2015
There seems to be an influx of Biblical films coming out of Hollywood recently. I thought Hollywood picked that carcass clean, but here we are. Don't get me wrong, there are some stellar Biblical films out there, namely the likes of Prince of Egypt, The Passion of the Christ and The Ten Commandments. They were films despite heavily rooted in belief, but didn't demand that you believed in the authenticity of their stories in order to enjoy them. They were just great films in their own right. ...

As a reviewer I'm always open to every game that needs to be reviewed. I mean, I have to be because that's my job. Coming to reviews with a preconceived notion of a game or genre is generally a bad idea, as at the end of the day I want to give you guys and gals an unbiased perspective of a game. I'm not here to screw you around, and whether and game is great or complete shit, I'll let you know about it. Sure there are certain genres I don't really enjoy, but I always do my best to play those ... Read More

Directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu and out now on Blu-Ray and DVD comes Birdman, a strange film in many ways. The way its shot, the way it seems to jump from psychological thriller to drama to comedy all within a minute, and in general – it’s strange. But that’s not to say strange is a bad thing.Alejandro González Iñárritu has a fairly small back catalogue, so to score four Oscars, including Best Pictureand Best Director would have been surprising, had it not been for Birdman: ...
