Sacramento Kings – Stay the Course

When the Sacramento Kings last made the NBA playoffs, I was living Japan as a teenager. Needless to say, its been a while and while this will sound crazy, the Kings should build off what was a solid 2017 draft class and stay the course. Numerous reports have surfaced saying that top prospects are refusing…

Vampyr – A pleasant Surprise

A Bloody Affair Admittedly, I haven’t made the best choices when it comes to Vampyr, a game in which player choice has a direct impact on the difficulty and environment.  You’re a newly turned vampire, Jonathan Reid, who just happens to be a doctor specialising in blood transfusions.  The irony in this is brought up…

Top 10 Titles Looking Ahead – Prepare your Wallet Edition

Normally, my lists are pretty short, 5 is the usual sweet spot, but this E3 was jam packed with games and I’ll give my personal Top 10, because let’s be honest, everyone won E3 and that’s a fact. I am however, only including games with release dates or windows because otherwise, the majority of these…

Resident Evil 2 Remake – My Game of the Show

Look, I’m a massive Resident Evil fan who was highly critical of Resident Evil 6 because of its push away from survival horror. Capcom, who saw that fans were become tired of the series, decided to commit to a soft reboot in the form of Resident Evil 7 to immense success. Two years ago, it…

Fallout 76 – A surprising turn for the series

After weeks of speculation, it was finally confirmed that Fallout 76 is indeed going to be an online-only game. This will divide some, as there are enough online-only titles that have troubling starts, but none of those games have the experience with open-world titles like Bethesda. It felt like Fallout 4 laid down the foundation…

E3 Microsoft Conference – A Strong Showing

Simply put, this was Microsoft’s strongest showing at E3 in years. From games to discussing the acquisitions of new studios, such as Ninja Theory, this was a focused conference and really only had one hiccup. Here are my highlights: Ori and the Will of the Wisps This was a strong start to the show as…

Darkwatch – Oh, what could have been

For whatever reason, I was playing Vampyr and thought to myself: What happened to Darkwatch? Combating the forces of darkness in the Wild West was a fun time. It’s a shot in the dark to assume that Darkwatch would get a second life, but you never know and it’s fun to speculate. Developed by High…

Hitman 2 – You’ve got red on you.

When Square Enix parted ways with IO Interactive, the future of the Hitman series was left up in the air. The first season of the rebooted Hitman series was fantastic, it featured 7 episodes, open-ended gameplay, and numerous side contracts. It had incredible replay value and for a game that was episodic in nature, there…

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse – How many more Spider-Men are there?

Well…this is now my most anticipated Marvel film.  A unique art style that heavily resembles the comics it draws inspiration from, coupled with the introduction of a young Miles Morales as Spider-Man.  Into the Spider-Verse has potential to be another solid entry in the Marvel universe and possibly the best in the Marvel animated library….

Destiny 2: Forsaken – Too little too late?

Prepare yourselves Guardians Year 2 for Destiny 2, as it was for its predecessor, is going to be huge for the franchise. Like the Taken King expansion, Bungie is putting all of its chips in with the Forsaken expansion. I’ve been critical of these massive open world games because it always feels like there is…

A Spawn Reboot is on the way!

Recently a new Spawn movie was revealed to be in development and as a fan of the character I couldn’t be more excited. However, news that the movie will be a “creep” film instead of a traditional superhero film, in which the titular character is more of the monster that you barely see, is a…

Detroit Become Human – Review

What will you decide? Visually stunning and well-acted, Detroit: Become Human can be messy at times due to the melodramatic tone and tedious sections, but overall it’s a solid experience. There are some surprisingly powerful moments and it thoughtful approach to oppression and self-discovery deserves merit. The narrative exploration is impressive, featuring a sprawling script…
