Infinity War Title

Infinity War Review: The End of the World as we Know It.

April 26, 2018 Conor 0

This Infinity War review is spoiler free. For the quick version, it’s an entertaining solid film. There’s an unusual central viewpoint, a good use of the majority of the (quite large) cast and some clever through lines on 10 years of films to this point. If you like any of the Marvel Movies to date, then this film has something for you.

Ready Player One Title

Ready Player One Review: It’s Better than the Book.

March 30, 2018 Conor 0

Steven Spielberg has done something quite spectacular here. He’s made Ready Player One into a film that isn’t as stodgy and unpleasant as the book. In fact, Spielberg has taken this book and made an actually watchable adaptation.  It’s by no means great. But it’s watchable.

PUBG Cover Title

PUBG Review: It shouldn’t be this good.

December 21, 2017 Conor 0

PUBG as a game shouldn’t work. It’s a multiplayer only game that requires around 100 players for a match. It looks bland as white rice. There’s fundamentally no narrative, no story. To start a game is to commit to a single 30 minute time sink where 99 players are going to lose. This game should have empty servers, critical panning and a bunch of postmortems to dissect exactly how bad of an idea it is.   Yet it’s easily one of the most engrossing games I’ve played in a long time. Somehow PUBG is a highly compelling game that’s sucked up most of my year.

The Last Jedi Title

The Last Jedi: Fun, Flawed, but looking to the Future.

December 17, 2017 Conor 0

The Last Jedi is worth your time. Not just as a good Star Wars film, but as a fun, beautifully made adventure that sets the stage for the series to come. It has flaws, but the sum of the many parts is worth the whole experience.   

Heat Signature Title

Heat Signature Review: Ingenious Improvisation In Space

September 26, 2017 Conor 0

Heat Signature is a fascinating exercise in how well and how quickly you can improvise. You’ll be given a problem to solve. You’ll have a very short time to solve it. You’ll have a limited set of tools. You’re going to come up with some very fun solutions. Or die trying.

Tacoma Review Title

Tacoma Review

August 8, 2017 Conor 0

Tacoma is a story you know, in a place you don’t. The characters are familiar and real, but the setting is literally otherworldly. It is the story of ordinary people in an extraordinary situation. Tacoma is a first person interactive drama from Fullbright. You play as corporate worker named Amyitjyoti  (Amy) Ferrier. You’ve been sent to gather the Onboard Management AI from the abandoned Tacoma Space station. You’ve been hired to go and gather all the recordings of the crew, to find out what happened to cause the station to stop functioning a few days ago.

Kingdoms and Castles is a charmingly cute medieval city building indie game from Lion Shield Studios that also features tower defence elements.
