Video Games Review: Dreamfall Chapters (PS4, 2017) dreams big, but falls a little flat

The Dreamfall timeline is a complicated one. Bear with us. The original game, The Longest Journey, released in 2000 and was followed up in 2006 with Dreamfall: The Longest Journey. It lay dormant for nine years until the launch of Dreamfall Chapters, an episodic continuation of the series. The first episode of Dreamfall Chapters released in 2014 but its fifth and final episode didn’t materialise until 2016. Now, in 2017, the entire Chapters series has been remastered and compiled into a single game, The Final Cut, for its journey to consoles.

Video Games Review: Guardians of The Galaxy: The Telltale Series Ep 1 – Tangled Up In Blue (Xbox One, 2017)

Telltale Games is back, baby! I know, they seem to be back every few months but this time they’re bringing the flavour of the month — Guardians of The Galaxy! This is a story based not on the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s band of misfits but directly from the pages of their long-running comic book. So yeah, their aesthetic is a little different from that of the films and that sort of helps because they also sound different (except Rocket Raccoon, Nolan North does a damn near spot on impression of Bradley Cooper’s take on the character).

Interview: The Last Kingdom‘s Alexander Dreymon talks Sydney, binge watching, sex scenes and plays “What Would Uhtred Do?”

With the wonderfully violent and gritty BBC & Netflix Drama Series The Last Kingdom Season 2 heading to Blu-Ray and DVD this month, we caught up with the clever and humble Alexander Dreymon who plays the mildly enigmatic lead role and hero Uhtred in the critically acclaimed series....

Netflix Review: Dear White People (USA, 2017) is a binge-worthy treat

Dear White People directed by Justin Simien, was a 2014 indie hit film that went wild, from word of mouth at Sundance Film Festival. Critics applauded it and it garnered a massive fan base – so why wouldn’t we want to see it back as a hit Netflix series? Well, it’s here and it could be the new generation’s wonderfully culturally divisive version of Freaks and Geeks (cancelled way too soon)!... Continue Reading

Get to know Mantis and Star-Lord’s baby daddy “Ego: The Living Planet” before watching Guardians Vol. 2

After watching Guardians of The Galaxy the day it hit cinemas in July of 2014 (yes, I feel older and did you know Justin Bieber is 23 now?), I said to myself “I want more, this is going to be pretty massive, I reckon that Groot Tree might be a hit as well”. My mate looked at me and said “I don’t see a tree that only says three words being a big hit? But I can see the shirt merchandise happening”. We were both wrong and right, the film was a critical and commercial success, and sold plenty of merch to boot. It seemed that this little-known sleeper cell of super heroes that had been in comics for so many years gained global recognition overnight.... Continue Reading

TV Review: Outcast Season 2 Episode 2 “The Day After That” adds more questions

Episode two of the FX series Outcast‘s second season hits the ground running with a crash outside of town being discovered by a local police officer. It seems that rather than following the original fabricated alibi Giles had created (Mark taking his own life), due to Maggie’s wishes of her husband not seen giving up on his family, Giles has set it up so it looks as if Mark was killed in a car crash instead....
