Cheap Game Tuesday: ‘Just Cause 2′

The other day I was in my local game retailer and was pleased to find a 3 for $45 sale. This kind of pricing might be normal for your fancy overseas folk, but in Australia it’s gangbusters. Having grabbed Ghostbusters and Max Payne 3 I rounded it out with the already played Just Cause 2 because I remember … Continue reading

Everything Wrong With X-Box One

Don’t get me wrong, I love X-Box. I’ve been a strong X-BOX supporter for years now, and bought the X-BOX One the day it came out. I’ve played a large selection of the games: Dead Rising 3, Assassins Creed, Call Of Duty Ghosts, Battlefield 4, LEGO Marvel Superheros, NBA 2K14, Titanfall, Watch Dogs, FIFA, Need … Continue reading

Doctor Who Review Vol. 12.1 – ‘Deep Breath’

Here we go again. The first episode of any new incarnation of the Doctor is a delicate prospect for the production team. Whether or not the new actor is suited to the role (and we didn’t doubt for a moment that Calpadi would be anything but perfect) they need to sell us on the new … Continue reading


Retro Review – ‘Cry-Baby’

After so many years playing Jack Sparrow multiple times over, it is easy for movie fans to forget that Johnny Depp was at one point an actor who gave his all in parts that might be considered risky. If you need an example of this look no further than the 1990 cult classic, John Waters’ Cry-Baby. … Continue reading


Dracula: The Actors Behind the Cape

Few characters in the history of pop culture have grown past their literary origins to become embedded in the minds of people across the world. One of the most prominent figures to do this is none other than the most popular vampire of them all, Count Dracula. From the novel by Bram Stoker, this creature … Continue reading


The Pull List: 8/20/2014

Must read comics of 8/20/2014. I didn’t get a chance to write one last week. Life got in the way. Sorry about that. Delinquents #1 I have heard of Quantum and Woody, but I can’t say that I have ever read them. I have never heard of Archer and Armstrong until they got optioned as … Continue reading


Cheap Game Tuesday: ‘Brothers – A Tale of Two Sons’

When this little indie gem first emerged on the market all the reviews suggested checking it out yourself rather than reading about it. Naturally I avoided all reviews of the material and downloaded a copy. Then I didn’t play it for a long time because I’m more likely to play a game I know something … Continue reading
