by MrCraiggyon 04/10/2016
Aloha! Craig here. It’s my turn on the good ship Animeniacs, following Daniel and Lianne‘s offerings to this new series of articles. Now, I was torn as to which anime series I wanted to talk about in this review, because there have been a few that I’ve been watching recently which have really grabbed my […]

Dark Souls III DLC Trailer – Git Gudder

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 […]

Dungeons 2 Review – Or “Embrace the Evil Within”

by MrCraiggyon 02/06/2016
So often in video games, we, as the player, find ourselves placed in the role of the hero, striving to battle against the greater evil and save the wider world from its clutches…. but being good all the time can get boring, fast; if only you could be the villain? Well there have been several […]

The Six-Gun Tarot: aka “Cowboys and Injuns and Elder Gods, oh my!”

by MrCraiggyon 24/05/2016
It’s very rare that I am one to judge a book by its cover, what with novels having different editions etc. But there was something about this particular book that grabbed me; perhaps it was the upside down skeleton dressed as a cowboy, leering and grinning madly from the shelf at me. Maybe it was […]

Retr-Oh My – The New Look Mega Drive Collection

by MrCraiggyon 23/04/2016
  SEGA have held a special place in my heart since I first picked up a controller. My first taste of console gaming was visiting my cousin and him kicking my butt on Street Fighter II, bearing in mind I was maybe 5 or 6 at the time and hadn’t mastered my sick skills yet, […]

A Tale of UnEpic Proportions

by MrCraiggyon 16/04/2016
If you hadn’t guessed by now, I’m somewhat partial to a good adventure. I like to go to new places, I like to experience new things, I like the fantasy and wonderment of literature, film and game. It’s no surprise then that when a game such as UnEpic comes along, it pops up on my […]

Rumpus “Choose your own misadventure” & the Era of Live Gaming

by MrCraiggyon 06/04/2016
Allow me to set the scene. It’s Friday night. I thought I was in London, but instead, I found myself surrounded by Unicorns, Unicorn Hunters, Sky Pirates, Luchadors and so many other vibrant characters. There are duels with swords within the royal court. There is a rebellion among the Panda community. I played cards against […]

by MrCraiggyon 01/04/2016
Kickstarter. Reading this, you’re probably already very familiar with this particular website and what it has to offer which is, quite frankly, almost everything.
