Twilight Imperium 4th Edition- Review

by Matt Gearyon 06/03/2020
All in all, TI4 is a great game (though not the cheapest), balanced, not overly complex, quicker than you might think and with so much replayability. If you are the long hall war gaming type then you'll need to go into it understanding that it isn’t really a wargame, despite its look, it’s a game of diplomacy and threat… with the ability to war it out, if you must.

Vampire: The Masquerade – The Fall of London

by Peter Ray Allisonon 25/02/2020
The second inquisition’s taking of London and their purge of the city’s vampires is one of the major changes to the metaplot of the 5th edition (aka: V5) of Vampire: The Masquerade (reviewed here).  Much of what happened has been hinted at in sourcebooks, but in The Fall of London we finally learn the truth. […]

REVIEW : Back to the Future – The Musical

by redshirtjamieon 21/02/2020
Let’s just get this out of the way. Nobody likes reboots. Nobody likes remakes, prequels or re-imaginings. Over the last decade we’ve seen films be pressed through the shiny Hollywood machine, only to tumble out the end capturing absolutely none of the original joy or spark of the source material. Every few years a rumour […]

by joshkingofgeekson 18/02/2020
Not a film without its faults but one that passes the baton of nostalgia from one generation to another with the help of people power and a studio that listened for once; Bravo Paramount, Bravo.  A great watch for the whole family.

Phoenix Point

by Peter Ray Allisonon 21/12/2019
It would be fair to say that Julian Gollop invented turn-based tactical squad-combat computer games, when he released Rebelstar Raiders on the Spectrum in 1984.  From there, he created Laser Squad and later UFO: Enemy Unknown (also known as X-COM) and its sequels.  Each game introduced new elements, from the Geoscape strategic overlay of the […]

Reboots Assemble : Jay and Silent Bob Reboot!

by joshkingofgeekson 04/12/2019
To say i’m a Kevin Smith fan is putting it lightly and to even say i’m in the demographic doesn’t even scratch the surface of my adoration of this man. With an evening of Reboot Pie, followed by an after show Q&A, I couldn’t quite understand why the gods hadn’t struck me down right there […]

Vortex Attack EX. Review

by Jonjo Cosgroveon 19/11/2019
2019 is filled with big-budget AAA titles. Pokemon Sword & Shield, Mortal Kombat 11, Death Stranding and even Luigi’s Mansion 3 have all been massive successes! But there are plenty of smaller titles which are also worth your time and effort. Saying that, let’s see what we have to show today…   WHAT IS THIS […]

The weekend-long geek-fest officially commenced on the Friday morning, with the opening ceremony where event organiser Jonni Davis […]
