Japanese Mayhem- Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage Review (X360/PS3)

Japanese Mayhem- Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage Review (X360/PS3)

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 […]

About As Lifelike As You Would Think- The Dead Island Review (X360/PS3/PC)

Like most of the gaming community, I was enamored with the FMV trailer of Dead Island when it first came out.

I will be honest; I have never really been into the driving genre since the first Need for Speed Underground, where neon and pimping up cars hadn’t become the be all and end all of every bloody racing game on the planet. All three of the past ‘Driver’ games passed me by, particularly as I […]

Feature: Can Popcorn Movies Be So Bad That They Are Good?

Everyone has seen Bulletproof Monk once, whether to actually sit down and make a point of it or seeing it as the only worthful piece of entertainment that isn’t a reality show of some kind. Chow Yun Fat stars (the guy from Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon) Seann William Scott (Stifler from American Pie) and some […]
