Vampires and vampire hunters; a generation of kids born in the 90′s will likely associate these two things with a one Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Does Dawnguard go down the sparkly vampire route or do the bloodsuckers get redemption in Bethesda’s new DLC for the juggernaut that is Skyrim?
With Max Payne 3 now released, and boasting very impressive sales figures, it would seem the gaming public has lapped up Max Payne’s.. pain and thrown themselves full throttle into the bullet time mechanic that was essentially made popular by the arrival of the Matrix films and the first in the Max Payne series.
Skyrim is perhaps one of the biggest games to hit this generation of consoles. Dragons. Swords. Blood. Scantily Clad Women. Scantily Clad Men. Scantily Clad… you get the idea. I have poured hours into the game and still have barely touched the main quest. I’m at 100 smithing and have created dragon armour, been a […]
Arnold Schwarzenegger. Bodybuilder. Actor. Politician. Environmentalist. I doubt anyone watching Conan the Barbarian or The Terminator ever thought that our Austrian friend would ever reach the heights that he did, particularly when there was actual discussion to change the naturalised citizen clause to allow him to run for President (I am pretty sure Obama would […]
Guest blogger Jai Waddell (@jaiwaddell on twitter) gives his opinion on the world of 3D cinema: 3D films are all the rage at the minute.

Family Guy. South Park. The Simpsons. All hit TV shows that have had dreadful dreadful games based on them, save Hit and Run and Road Rage for the Simpsons which were simply amazing. TV seems to have the same trouble films have when making films of games: amazing source material that is translated very poorly.The […]
Never have my retinas been shaken so badly nor have I been so confused and boyish impressed by a demo in my time as a gamer. It is possible that I’m giving the impression that this is the best game I have ever played ;frankly it’s a bit of a turd being equally wacky and […]
Like most of the gaming community, I was enamored with the FMV trailer of Dead Island when it first came out. For anyone who hasn’t seen it, it follows a child running away from a group of zombies within a hotel, being bitten which then leads her parents to protect her from the onslaught. Unfortunately […]
Ignore the fact that he is a French hero, with no limbs, questionable hair and an odd outlook on life; Rayman should be in the gaming pantheon along with Sonic, Mario and, begrudgingly admitted, Crash Bandicoot as the masters of enjoyable platforming. Rayman’s new old school foray into platform gaming is the first traditional 2D […]
