PlayStation NOW has been around for a while now and if you have not heard of it, no one would blame you. It’s the poorly advertised streaming service that is available for the PS4 allowing you to play from a huge library of PS3 titles if you are willing to fork over a monthly subscription […]

Video Games Are Art Now – Get Used To It

by SeanPWallaceon 27/08/2016
Roger Ebert famously, in 2005, claimed that video games were and could never be art. I, along with many in those first generations who grew up with gaming as a core medium in our lives, vehemently disagreed and there were constant conversations on and offline on which games countered Ebert’s core claim. To many, it became […]

by Andy Haighon 26/08/2016
In news that will make British readers of a certain age rather nostalgic the BBC reports Rebellion, the owners of British comics mainstay 2000AD, have just purchased the Fleetway archive from Egmont.

by MrCraiggyon 24/08/2016
Back in March of this year, From Software released their third installment in the Dark Souls series, which they have claimed will be the final one, leaving it as a trilogy. However, as with previous Soulsborne games (that’s the combined titles of Demon’s Souls, Dark Souls & Bloodborne, for those keeping track), it seems that DS3 will not be without its fair share […]

Nerd Block Classic: August 2016 Box

by xdustineflxon 24/08/2016
  Much like Geek Fuel, last month was my first experience with Nerd Block. I went with the Classic block, and after being pretty happy with it, I kept Classic again this month, hoping to go 2-for-2. It didn’t happen with Geek Fuel, and regular Loot Crate has long been in decline, so I needed […]

Home-grown Heroes of Irish Comics (Part 1)

by trekkiemarkon 23/08/2016
Back in 2007 I attended my first Comic Book Convention in Ireland. It was a rather underwhelming experience truth be told. I spent the greater part of the day trying the find the venue on the rain and windswept shores of Dublin Bay. After what seemed like an eternity I walked in to the modest […]

Geek Fuel: August 2016 Box

by xdustineflxon 21/08/2016
This month, we got our second box from Geek Fuel. After last month’s box was pretty decent on a whole, we decided to give Geek Fuel (and Nerd Block) at least one more month before we decided whether or not we’d keep the subscriptions. Was this month as good as last month? Let’s take a […]

by Andy Haighon 20/08/2016
Youtuber Kristian Williams aka KaptainKristian has, to me, rapidly established himself as one of the best content creators on the platform. Creating numerous very well made, informative and colourful video essays on various elements of pop culture, from the influence of Batman The Animated Series, to the multi-layered brilliance of Futurama, the enduring cross generational […]
