If you’re new to th...

Will Suicide Squad be more popular than the average superhero movie?

Will Suicide Squad be more popular than the average superhero movie? Like many others, I am very excited for Suicide Squad.

Review: Mirror’s Edge Catalyst

With scores of 34% on Metacritic and 34% on Rotten Tomatoes the skies are dark indeed. However, this fan was more than satisfied with the ‘popcorn chaos’ that ensued. Despite being far too back from the screen for my li...

Top Three Games That Will Always Stay with Me

Top Three Games That Will Always Stay with Me There are some games we cannot forget. Some games created like art, or a song that plays over and over in our head. For me, games are definitely a form of art, and like a book or movie they can make us cry, laugh and shrink beneath our duvet covers in horror. Ask any gamer, they will have a favourite, maybe even a top three that they will never forget ...
