From the off, Outward makes it clear that it won’t be one of your more typical Western RPGs.

I will try to keep this review spoiler free for Avengers: Age of Ultron. However, if you haven’t seen it – what are you playing at? Get out there and see it, it’s great fun! However, this film made me a tiny bit worried about the future Marvel films, all due to one reason/ word: Set […]Read more "Marvel, and why I’m a little worried about them"
2015 is set to be a big year for films. Sequel, prequels, remakes of classic Disney fairy tales – plenty of people will be going to the cinema this year, all varieties for all kinds of films. But it might end up being a great year for sci-fi in particular, if the first couple of […]Read more "New Years Sci-fi"
Please note: No spoilers for Interstellar will follow, but having seen the film will help! I am going to start this by saying Interstellar is a fantastic film. Visually beautiful, a perfect blend of top-notch CGI and practical effects, great performances and surprisingly emotional. It’s a technical marvel and if you still haven’t seen it, […]Read more "Interstellar, and the Pros & Cons of Hype"
