on Fri, May 29, 2015 | By Tom Acres

Summer is edging ever closer and so free time is becoming all the more prevalent in the lives of the HSR team, which means more gaming! What are we up to this weekend?

Infinite Undiscovery combat
on Wed, May 27, 2015 | By Jason Hernandez

Change can often be good. In a genre like JRPG – a genre drowning in constant re-releases, shoddy mobile games, and reiterations of turn-based systems with no substance – a change of pace is welcomed with openly desperate arms. It is because of this hunger for innovation that several JRPGs reached critical acclaim. Chrono Trigger, Shin Megami Tensei, Tales of...

[REVIEW] Destiny: House of Wolves

on Tue, May 26, 2015 | By Tyler Robertson

Let’s get one thing out of the way right at the start: House of Wolves is awesome. If you have been into Destiny since the beginning, it is a new and refreshing piece of downloadable content, and if you were disappointed by the Dark Below DLC, House of Wolves is its redeemer. The House of Wolves narrative takes place in the Reef, which is located within the asteroid...

So without further ado let’s take a look at what some of the team will be knuckling down with this weekend.

[TV REVIEW] The Flash: Season One

on Fri, May 22, 2015 | By Thomas Coast

Writing a review for the first season of a television show can be difficult. A lot of the time, the first season is used to help the show find its place in the ever expanding world of the small screen. Take Breaking Bad for example. Hailed as one of the greatest television series of all time, Vince Gilligan’s masterpiece was a slow burner. Some people even gave up after...

Three months later for my 7th birthday I unwrapped it as my very first PlayStation 2 game that was actually mine and not one I had to beg my older brother to play, and to this day it remains my favourite of the series. The plot follows the adventures of the...
