[FILM REVIEW] Kingsman: The Secret Service

on Sat, Jan 24, 2015 | By Tom Acres

Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman seem like a match made in heaven. From reviving the X-Men franchise with First Class to riffing on fantastical romance with the brilliant Stardust, the pair have shown serious aptitude for creating consistently enjoyable cinema experiences. Arguably the crème de la crème of their filmography, though, is Kick-Ass; a sharp-witted, perfectly...

[REVIEW] Saints Row IV: Gat Out of Hell

on Thu, Jan 22, 2015 | By Tom Lynch

To sum up the nature of this standalone Saints Row expansion is easy: you get to punch Satan in the face. Having said that, by Saints Row standards that’s actually fairly tame. And here lies the main issue: Gat Out of Hell suffers from feeling significantly inferior to the ludicrousness and content of Saints Row IV, even if it does hold up as a reasonably ample experience...

[FEATURE] Snow Early Access Impressions

Early access games are difficult things to assess. They are, by their very nature, incomplete, and so you cannot give a definitive judgement on them. Often they contain glitches and bugs that wouldn’t be seen in a live release outside of Assassin’s Creed Unity, but are not unexpected in Alpha and Beta versions of games. As a result I tend to look for that moment...

[REVIEW] Warhammer Quest

It was 1995 when Games Workshop first released Warhammer Quest. Now, almost 20 years later, an adaptation of the popular board game has been released on both iOS and on PC.  Unfortunately the transition from board to screen hasn’t proved to be particularly beneficial, as the end product feels uninspired and lacklustre. The game’s premise is a simple one. Lead your...

[FILM REVIEW] Foxcatcher

on Tue, Jan 13, 2015 | By Jack Crutcher

Some stories were always meant to be told. Foxcatcher is certainly one of them. A dark and unapologetically cold recount of the events surrounding the relationship between the American Olympic wrestling team and the heir to the Du Pont family fortune John Eleuthère du Pont, Foxcatcher is a film made great by career defining individual performances and some exceptional directing...

[NEWS] Name Changes Coming to Minecraft

It’s official! Mojang has finally announced that starting Feb. 4th, Minecraft players on PC will have the ability to change their usernames. Previously the only way to obtain new names in the blocky sandbox phenomenon was to buy a new account, so this new addition is a saviour for many users who made an input mistake years ago. For those worried about having their...
