Capcom is on a roll with the Street Fighter 5 announcement and the Resident Evil remake for current gen, and it should be no surprise that they are bringing their last two DMC games from last gen to this one. Press Release: “San Mateo, California.-Dec. 15th, 2014 Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today announced that DMC Devil May Cry:...

Ridley Scott’s recent filmography reeks of desperation. Efforts to top his Oscar-winning hit Gladiator continue to fall flat, whilst fans of Alien were left cold by 2012’s messy prequel, Prometheus. The fact that every trailer for an upcoming Scott feature never ceases to remind us that it comes ‘from the director of Gladiator’ speaks volumes. Nothing...

In the final instalment of Peter Jackson’s film adaptations of The Hobbit, The Battle of the Five Armies ends the viewers time in Middle Earth in an action-packed way and much like its predecessor, it jumps in with action from the very beginning.  You still have a little under three hours to sit through, but it’s definitely not a waste of time, at least if you’re there...

[FILM REVIEW] The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1

The Rebellion has begun
on Fri, Dec 12, 2014 | By Sean Previl

It may be another cash grab by filmmakers, splitting the final book in another young adult novel series into two films, but The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 delivers another spectacular return to Panem and although it doesn’t deliver as much action or bloody murders as the first two films, it develops the story and characters further with spurts of fighting in between. The...

Despite only being December, the awards season has very much been on the minds of those in the film business for the past few months. Christmas is an unwelcome distraction for film anoraks the world over, who await the real festivities of the the Academy Awards this coming February. The fact the attention of production companies, directors, producers and actors is captured...

[REVIEW] Far Cry 4

on Tue, Dec 9, 2014 | By Tom Lynch

Just when I thought I knew the definition of insanity, Pagan Min emerges on screen and proceeds to show me a very Joker esque magic trick. In that rather psychotic moment I knew this would be the ruthless antagonist that awaits me in my journey through Kyrat in Ubisoft’s Far Cry 4. But is that journey, however crazy, an enjoyable experience or an underlying disappointment? The...

We’ll be back with plenty more Hangout chats over the next few weeks as we deliberate our 2014 Game of the Year Awards, so be sure to check out our YouTube channel and don’t...

[REVIEW] Game of Thrones Episode 1: Iron From Ice

on Mon, Dec 8, 2014 | By Bryan Dull

There is a part of me that is a little spoiled. Telltale Games has not steered me in the wrong direction yet. Taking existing intellectual properties and adding their own kind of side stories to it give their games a fresh perspective while keeping elements of the original source. With games like The Walking Dead and Tales from the Borderlands, they managed to keep my attention...

[REVIEW] Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal

on Mon, Dec 8, 2014 | By Ryan Oehrli

Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal finds itself in an odd place.  Despite being a Sonic game, it isn’t meant for fans of the series.  Fast-paced platforming takes a step back in favor of exploration, familiar characters sport unfamiliar designs, and new developer Sanzaru Games is left in charge. It’s worth noting that both this version of Boom and its Wii U counterpart...

[REVIEW] Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
on Sat, Dec 6, 2014 | By Jason Hernandez

Coming back from the treacherous reaches of space and a friendly jaunt through the Sprixie Kingdom, Captain Toad is back in the puzzle game Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker and this time he’s center stage. In regular Super Mario Bros. fashion, Treasure Tracker has just enough of a plot to tie together a world and a reason to venture through it. The game opens up with...

on Fri, Dec 5, 2014 | By Bryan Dull

Update: The game will indeed only on PS4 and PC per the PlayStation Experience Conference. After multiple iterations of the fourth Street Fighter game on last generation consoles, it was only a matter of time until Capcom finally made the announcement that Street Fighter 5 will be released. What some might not have expected is that it will be exclusive to PS4 and PC only....

[REVIEW] BlazeRush

on Wed, Dec 3, 2014 | By Rob Volker

Whereas larger AAA games have no problems when it comes to building hype and anticipation, smaller games can often go by unnoticed by many. This is a shame, especially when you could be missing out on an addictive and fun little game that deserves some of your time. BlazeRush is exactly that. Whilst it is not perfect, the game provides what can only be described as an entertaining...

[REVIEW] Tales from the Borderlands Episode 1: Zer0 Sum

on Tue, Dec 2, 2014 | By Bryan Dull

It is well known that Telltale Games likes to take existing franchises and put their own personal spin on it, but in the case of Tales from the Borderlands, this is the first time they have taken a currently popular FPS and spun their own take on it. Does Tales from the Borderlands lend itself well to Telltales way of storytelling, or does it get lost in the translation? In...

[FILM REVIEW] Paddington

on Mon, Dec 1, 2014 | By Tom Acres

Forget the John Lewis advert and Santa Claus downing bottles of Coke, soon it’ll a BBC One screening of Paddington that marks the start of the Christmas season. Perhaps it should come as no surprise coming from the producer of the seasonal treats many of the earlier Harry Potter films were, but this big screen adaptation of Michael Bond’s red hatted, blue coat-wearing...
