DC’s Oversight: Batman’s Ends Piss Off Everyone

There are certain characters and stories that never translate well to the silver screen, and the sad fact is that most studios will continue to repeatedly make horrible films simply to keep their copyrights or because false-positives showed that an audience was out there somewhere. You know the names. Tomb Raider, all items Frankenstein (I, Frankenstein,…

Character Assasination: Tohru Adachi

Massive Spoilers Ahead Tohru Adachi. Oh I love Adachi. Persona 4 is full of colourful characters that have real ‘life’ injected into each of them. Each character’s corresponding social link arcana reflects their character’s surface personality. Kanji adopts the ‘emperor’ Persona- that shows his surface values. Before you get to know him, he seems pretty…

But if you’re still reading we’re going to take a look at the pirates; Anne Bonny and Mary Read, both of whom appear as characters alongside other historical seafarers in Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag.…

Character Assassination: Yuna

In the interests of full disclosure: I adore Yuna. I think Yuna is one of, if not the single greatest female character in video gaming. There. I said it. Female characters often suffer greatly in gaming; frequently varying between so incredibly hard ass there is no room for flaws or so weak and fragile they…

TimeSplitters Rewind Update: New Gun Render Shown

Cast your mind back to the days of Golden Eye on the N64. Classic, fantastic gameplay that is designed entirely with couch multiplayer in mind. Hell, just multiplayer in general because online wasn’t even a thing. Now look a bit less back to TimeSplitters and more notably- TimeSplitters 2. TimeSplitters 2 is a classic and is…

Character Assassination: Liquid Snake

It’s pretty difficult for us to admit this, having devoted so much of our time to them, but video games are a lot like television.  A videogame without a set storyline can be great, but it will always amount to being something that you can dip in and out of without getting too invested in,…

Why you Should be Looking Forward to Persona 5

The recent Persona 5 trailer that was shown a few weeks ago has left me in utter awe of what’s to come. The trailer is beautifully presented. The fantastic jazzy soundtrack, the striking art style, the small snippets of gameplay; even the menu screens look exciting. If you have watched the trailer, you will know…

Android Virtual Reality is here

When I first laid my hands on the Oculus Rift, I was stunned. Finally, the childhood dream of ‘proper’ virtual reality was tangible and within reach! Sure, you could count each pixel. The audio required separate headphones and the peripheral vision could be better. There was also a problem with the refresh rate, which made…

Pokken Tournament: Can’t Catch ‘em All. Because Nintendo.

An unspeakable amazeballs in Japan has given birth to a new team-up that has created quite the stir in the gaming community: Pokemon and Tekken. It was predictable that the debuting savage battle between Lucario and the four-armed Machamp last August would inspire a crisis of confidence in the Eastern/Western media: will the roster satisfy all…

They Are Not Exactly Avengers

  Kevin Feige had a few things to say in relation to Spider-Man and the Marvel cinematic universe as a whole. Feige and Pascal’s cash cow collection of not-exactly-the-comic efforts have been a bit ambiguous at times, but basically Feige and company have declared that freeing characters is a fundamental nerd right, but not an absolute one. “We always…
