by Peter Ray Allisonon 24/11/2017
Wandering into MCM Birmingham Comic Con for the first time, you may be excused for being awestruck for a moment.  The entrance is a visual assault on the senses, with banners hanging from the ceiling, videos playing non-stop on the monitors and hordes of costumers of surrounding you.

Hallows Fell – a horror story

by Deepdarkredon 19/11/2017
Hallows Fell, created by Thom Burgess and illustrated by Izzy Stanic, depicts a story that combines modern life and old time superstition in a seamless blend.

Ghost Wars is one of the latest SyFy shows to come out this fall. With 6 episodes under the belt already, the show has had time to both find its footing and an audience, but what is Ghost Wars all about? And is it worth the watch? To answer the first question, the show is […]

Niche Review

by Rach Griffithson 11/10/2017
Niche is the brainchild of a woman who couldn’t decide whether she wanted to study biology or game design, and those two passions combined in her final thesis to create the first incarnation of this simulation/strategy game centred around genetics and survival.

Six games to watch out for from EGX2017

by Peter Ray Allisonon 25/09/2017
Games like Total War: Warhammer 2 and Assassin’s Creed: Origins naturally dominated this year’s EGX, which has always been about promoting new games.  Whilst I am keen to play Far Cry 5, if only for the story, much of the true innovation this year lies within the indie and left-field collections.

  I first saw Plume Varia live in concert in 2015, when they opened for one of my favourite current bands, In the Valley Below.

by xdustineflxon 15/09/2017
Sugarplum Chronicles is an upcoming game that will be launched on Kickstarter on October 2nd and I got my hands on an advance copy to put it through its paces.Uh SP is kind of a mash-up of Candy Land and a role-playing game. A curse has fallen over the land of Sugarplum, with no one sitting on the Frosted […]

Each of your five survivors have their own particular strengths and weaknesses that could end up being a help or a hindrance as […]
