Video Games Review: The Tomorrow Children (PS4, 2016)

It gets me giddy with excitement when developers like Q-Games steps outside the norm to try something original. The Tomorrow Children is so far from their usual fan-fare of PixelJunk titles you would think they have a pretty damn good reason to try and bring something original to their line-up. On the concept itself, they have achieved that goal. In execution however, not so much. Continue reading Video Games Review: The Tomorrow Children (PS4, 2016)

Review: BBC First’s Brief Encounters is some seriously addictive TV (Season 1, Episode 1)

And Sully, out now in Australian cinemas, proves no different, with the venerable actor steering both a movie and its plane to a safe landing.... Continue Reading

Video Games Review: Attack On Titan: Wings of Freedom (PS4, 2016)

Quite often we get stuck with inferior video game adaptations of TV shows and movies. It’s a rarity for any of them to accurately reflect the source material without ruining it in some form or another. Attack on Titan: Wings of Freedom, is a true testament of what can be done with a team that is passionate about the source material, even if it could have benefited from some more time in development and a little more variety.
