Destiny 2 Review

Destiny 2When Destiny 2 was announced I was unsure if I would try it out. With Destiny you either loved it or you hated it. The story was virtually non-existent with most of it being on a website that you had to go to in order to get the full back story. It was a poor and lazy way to implement it, so when Bungie announced that Destiny 2 would have a proper story with all the lore available in game it was enough to convince me to give it a go.
I was impressed with the Beta and so slapped down some notes for a pre-order. I opted for the PS4 version mainly because I didn’t want to have to wait for the PC version which will arrive late October.

Dunkirk Review

Christopher Nolan is known for spectacle in cinema. His films are among the most grandiose with a fan of film yet also appeal to a wider audience. His previous two films haven’t resonated as well as his other efforts. Entering a new genre in itself, Dunkirk has all the Nolan craft with plenty of great moments.  Dunkirk boasts stunning cinematography, the best sound you’ll hear in a theater, and an excellent structure. While it isn’t perfect, nor near the top of the ladder, Dunkirk cements itself as another thrilling moment that’s anchored by Christopher Nolan and Co and resonates as a great time out at the theater.

4-One’s Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Review

mario kart 8 deluxeI doubt I’m alone when I say that I absolutely love the Mario Kart series and have been playing them since the very first captured my heart all those years ago.  It’s a game that is just so fun and so pretty and yet so infuriating to play.  Well Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has finally screeched onto the Nintendo Switch so I thought I’d better have a look and see what’s changed.

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast movie review

beauty and the beastThis weekend, I had the pleasure of sitting down to watch Disney’s Beauty & the Beast, a remake of the classic timeless tale, but in live action. Since 2010, Disney have been remaking their classic stories in live action format from Alice in Wonderland, to Maleficent, Cinderella and The Jungle Book. While it’s some time since I’ve watched the original Beauty and the Beast, it held some sentimental value for me this weekend, which I will explain.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands Review

ghost recon wildlandsTom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands isn’t unique in a lot of areas. It isn’t particularly groundbreaking in terms of bringing new content to the genre of the 3rd person military tactical shooter, but it also isn’t guilty of not trying to be something truly great. Wildlands is a truly massive game. In the spirit of open world sandbox games this ranks right up there with the biggest in terms of size.

The Division: Survival – A Divided Affair

the division survivalThe Division. It is perhaps one of the most hotly debated titles to be released in 2016. Like it or not, any game that carries the Tom Clancy name badge immediately carries with it a certain set of expectations for authenticity and realism. Not to get entirely nostalgic but many of our younger readers may not know that name like some of we seasoned readers do, and appreciate the weight that the late author brought to the table.

We’ve been busy in San Francisco. Here’s our Watch Dogs 2 Review

Watch Dogs 2I’ll be honest I wasn’t a fan of the first Watch Dogs game but as of late I’ve come to realise that many of my favourite games at the minute are from Ubisoft and with the trailers all impressing me I thought that Watch Dogs 2 might be worth a punt. Many of the Ubisoft games I’m playing had issues, Ubisoft are somewhat renowned for it, but the developers seem to be going to great lengths to put things right. So what’s the verdict? Have they learned from the feedback they received from the first game and is this worthy of a place in your game library? Let’s take a look. Continue reading We’ve been busy in San Francisco. Here’s our Watch Dogs 2 Review
