Feeling a little under the weather or injured some part of your body? Well there are two ways to go about this situation you now find yourself in; the first is to try and get some rest and hope the flu simply fights itself off, or the second option for the more concerning injuries is to go and see the doctor to get their professional advice. In the real world there are some...

Well here we are again, coming to the end of another Phase of films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Starting from 2008’s Iron Man, there have been 10 movies all set in one continuity. Yes, a couple of them may not have been that great but none of them have been outright bad or bombed at the box office. So as days go by, many have wondered when the studio will produce a...

It truly is a retro kind of weekend here at HSR. Some of the staff are revisiting their childhood consoles, others are playing Shovel Knight. Whatever we may be playing, we’re just glad that you’re here. Tom Acres, Editor I’ll mostly be playing Cyprus Sunbathing Simulator 2015, although the micro transactions for poolside drinks and the long loading times...

[FEATURE] Throwback Thursday: Kingdom Hearts (2002)

on Thu, Apr 23, 2015 | By Jason Hernandez

I’m still not entirely sure how this series managed to become a reality. Before 2002, if you were to ask anyone what franchises they thought should do a crossover, no one would’ve said Final Fantasy and Disney. Turns out neither would Square, as the concept was loosely strung together in an unplanned meeting between Shinji Hashimoto, Hironobu Sakaguchi, and Tetsuya...

[REVIEW] State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition

on Wed, Apr 22, 2015 | By Bryan Dull

The term ‘zombie’, as of late, is sometimes met with an eye roll of two when mention of another game involving the undead comes around. While it probably can be argued that there is an overabundance of these games in the market right now, a major complaint could be that one game doesn’t do anything different than the other. Fortunately, developer Undead Labs went the...

Bryan start his venture into Ubisoft’s first 2D take on the Assassin’s Creed franchise and has an issue during one part of the first level that should have probably been obvious from at least the third try. Well…you’ll see*. *some bad language may have slipped out   ...

The video below is the 13 minute demo that Remedy made with the plans to create the sequel to Alan Wake. Unfortunately as of right now, there is no official word if this will become a reality someday, but all signs point to that it is probably still a possibility. However, Remedy needs to release Quantum Break before they can focus on anything else and even if they did decide...

[TV REVIEW] Daredevil

on Mon, Apr 20, 2015 | By Tom Acres

Every so often, something successful needs a jolt; something that keeps it on its toes and ensures that it stays fresh and relevant. Marvel did it to comic book movies with 2008’s Iron Man, which rewrote the rulebook on how such adaptations, and they’ve done it again to their own formula with Daredevil; a pleasingly grounded, ferocious, but also fun and addictive...

Superman, and our thoughts on Netflix’s Daredevil series. We’ve also played some games; Bloodborne, Borderlands 2, Mortal Kombat X, and the New Nintendo 3DS are...

It’s late, and your host is really, really tired. Honestly, we wouldn’t be surprised if he lulled off in the middle of writing this post. Sorry if this edition of OW lacks pizazz — we’re skipping the glamour and jumping straight into the games. Tom Acres, Editor I’ll be dabbling in an eclectic mix of Bloodborne, Destiny, and Mortal Kombat X. Once...
