7 Days to Die

Friday, 26 August 2016
For PC fans, open-world survival games are almost a dime a dozen but console players haven’t had many experiences in this genre. Out of all the games on PC to make its way to console, I don’t know if 7 Days to Die would be one I would expect to come out. This isn’t because the game isn’t good enough or that the mechanics wouldn’t appeal to the console market but simply that the game still isn’t finished or in a state that should be considered playable.Developed by The Fun Pimps and ...

Odin Sphere Leifthrasir

Thursday, 25 August 2016
There are many types of visually magnificent games available on any system, usually stemming from an excellent collaboration between the art team and those who work on the game's engine. When technical and art come together perfectly it’s sometimes enough to get your attention and even play it. I say this because Odin Sphere Leifthrasir is possibly the most beautiful game you will see on any system this year, but it’s not what you might think when you hear “best looking game”.Developed ...

Where to Invade Next

Wednesday, 24 August 2016
Although Michael Moore is extremely controversial in his political bias, there’s a reason he’s one of the most famous documentary filmmakers working – agree or disagree with his views, his films are bloody good. There’s nothing like a Michael Moore film to make you realise just how wrong a lot of the world does things. Although Moore predominantly points his finger at the US and criticises their every move – such as his harrowing study on US gun control, Bowling for Columbine, or his ... Read More

Rock The Kasbah

Tuesday, 23 August 2016
Back in the day, Bill Murray’s name was enough to sell anything. Throughout the 80s and 90s, everything Bill touched turned to box office gold – although not always critical gold. Still, he brought in the crowds and left the majority of audiences with smiles on their faces. However, in 2015 Bill Murray’s biggest mistake was released. A box-office bomb, the film grossed $3.5 million against a $15 million budget – and has the unlucky title of ‘the 5th worst opening of all-time for a ... Read More

No Man's Sky

Monday, 22 August 2016
Developed by Hello Games and out now for PS4 and PC, No Man’s Sky is surely the most ambitious videogame ever made. It gives you an entire procedurally generated universe to explore, and the promise of essentially an infinite number of flora and fauna to discover. Heck, you can even name anything you discover and have these names appear in other people’s games if/when they come across these things after you. It was an almost inconceivable goal, but they’ve pulled it off… to an ... Read More

In the Heart of the Sea

Sunday, 21 August 2016
In 1851, Herman Melville published the now-iconic Moby-Dick (or The Whale). It told the story of the obsessive quest of Captain Ahab to exact revenge on his fishy foe, the eponymous Moby Dick, a whale who destroyed his ship on a previous voyage and took his leg. Back in 1851, the novel was what we would now call a ‘flop’, and was completely out-of-print by Melville’s death in 1891. People were probably meeting at the pub and saying “You read Moby Dick? It’s shit, mate”. But during ... Read More

Carmageddon: Max Damage

Saturday, 20 August 2016
The trailers for Carmageddon: Max Damage were things that make you go “hmmm”, and not in a good way. They were all like “Hey, hahaha, look, you can drive through nuns! And penguins, too! Aren’t we just fucking CRAZY and CONTROVERSIAL?!?”. What you may have found yourself thinking, though, was more along the lines of “Those graphics look a bit crap. These trailers aren’t showing me much in the way of actual gameplay; is there a reason for that?”.Yes. Yes there is.Developed by ... Read More

High Rise

Friday, 19 August 2016
‘High Rise’, directed by Ben Wheatley, is a two hour psychedelic trip that you’ll find you just don’t want to come down from. Set in the 70s, this adaptation of the book by the same name (JG Ballard), follows Dr. Robert Laing (Tom Hiddleston) as he moves into a wealthy London skyscraper where the rich live on the lower floors and the fabulously wealthy live at the top. The entirety of the higher-end of society has been encapsulated into this one tower block, with each balcony looking ... Read More

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness

Thursday, 18 August 2016
There was a time when the Japanese Role Playing Game genre dominated the console gaming. Following the massive successes of Final Fantasy and Chrono Trigger, so many companies wanted to get on board to replicate their success. Unfortunately for fans of those games, those times no longer exist. We now must wait for games of this ilk and when they do come along, it’s a massive event. After nearly a decade away, Star Ocean is back and it feels very much like the last game in the series, for ... Read More
