TV Review: The Merge returns in the Outcast Season 2 premiere “Bad Penny”

Robert Kirkman’s Outcast returned this week and I had the pleasure of being around for its return. I am so glad that a well written and tight nit team of characters and story has graced the screen for another round and I will happily be reviewing the series on a weekly basis. Over the course of Outcast season two, I will do my best to stick to minor spoilers while not giving away major plot points. So here goes!... Continue Reading

Ahead of season two, we look back at the debut of Robert Kirkman’s brilliant FX series Outcast

Outcast, originally a comic published by Image Comics and created by Robert Kirkman and artist Paul Azaceta, is another Robert Kirkman TV creation that is slowly taking the world by storm. It may be a TV show that has a much smaller scale than Kirkman’s The Walking Dead series, but hey, even I remember watching the first season of that show and telling everyone else to give it a watch, they all laughed at me, “…it’s about Zombies?”, they smirked, “how good could it be?” Well, that was in 2010 and it’s now 2017, the show is still growing stronger despite a few bumps along the way....

Video Games Review: FlatOut 4: Total Insanity (Xbox One, 2017) can’t capitalise on its own simple concept

Who doesn’t love a crash-centric arcade racer? Throw in every physics-based toy you can think of, from ragdolls to realistic vehicle damage, with a difficulty curve that could generously be described as “mean-spirited” and you’ve got the recipe for FlatOut 4.

First impressions of Animals‘ second season from two first time viewers

Animals, what can we say about HBO’s crazy animated show? To give you a quick rundown, Animals is an American animated comedy television series created by new talents Phil Matarese and Mike Luciano. The first two episodes were independently produced and presented at the Sundance Film Festival in 2015 and HBO picked the series up after its success at the festival.... Continue Reading

You may already know that Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands is hitting stores this week. But did you know that some of the stories and missions in the game revolve around true stories and some scary and amazing characters from Bolivia?  To tell us more about these real-life stories, the release of the game is accompanied by a brand new documentary, Wildlands, narrated by Australian born author Rusty Young....

Video Games Preview: Conan Exiles shows promise, but has a long walk across the desert ahead of it

If you have played any open world survival genre in the last 2 years, you’ve got a good idea how your time with Conan Exiles, even in this early state, will play out. Conan Exiles doesn’t really try anything new at this stage and for most that will be okay. It is essentially another entry in the already saturated survival game market. It trades on its name in the hope it will be seen among the rest. Until we all see the final release build, here is what I have experienced in my first 16-hours of Funcom’s Conan Exiles.

Film Review: Fifty Shades Darker (MA15+) (USA, 2017) is a better film, but does it go anywhere?

“Are you just going to stand there and stare Christian Grey”? Anastasia Steele asks a tall well-dressed Christian Grey. “Yes”, he replies. Cue another sensually slow, but saucy scene where the two embrace and then another few roughly edited scenes later, we’re back at Steele’s work office, or a bar with her friends, as we cut back to Grey waiting for her to return....
