OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

But there’s a few considerations that need to be made when picking up your new-old console.

Guardians of the Galaxy Review

GuardiansoftheGalaxy

Director: James Gunn

Runtime: 121 minutes

Who’s in it? Chris Pratt plays Peter Quill, intergalactic scavenger and future galaxy guardian. His job is to listen to 80s mix tapes and make all men in the cinema feel wildly insecure about their flabby mid-sections and lack of a cardio regime. Vin Diesel plays a giant talking tree…thing. And Bradley cooper voices a feisty raccoon-human hybrid that is basically the Hans Solo of the mammalian world. The rest of the cast includes: Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou and Glenn Close. John C. Reilly has a supporting role and is as endearing as ever and there’s even a cameo for Benicio del Toro as ‘The Collector’.

The Golf Club Trailer

I like to think that if I created a trailer for a golf game, it would look a little something like this.

I’m not going to buy a golf game, but still, top marks for the trailer!

Operation Hipster Vintage Gaming

Crash_Bandicoot_Cover

Since I am currently residing in gaming limbo without a console, I have decided to tick a box that has been on my ‘to-do’ list for a while now and buy an 90’s console. I think we all romanticise our old systems; I remember playing classics like Crash Bandicoot on Ps1 and Donkey Kong on N64 much more fondly than any COD or Halo title from recent years. I’m probably looking back through rose tinted glasses, but I imagine these titles to be much more likeable than the majority of the titles released in the last 12 months.

Back Online Baby

After many months (about eleven of them to be precise) I am sticking my blog back online. Yayyy. I’m about as enthused as you are.

As well as the usual game reviews and nerdyness that has defined this blog so far, I’m also going to write up some features and maybe some cheeky movies reviews thrown in there. There’ll be a bunch of other good stuff too, so have a read and let me know what you think!

Other than that just follow me I as stumble around London attempting to pick up a masters degree with all the naivety and carelessness that accompanies the majority of my endeavours. 

Like this T-shirt I’m wearing, it’s going to be legendary

My Degree In Maddenology: Madden 25 Review

Madden 25 2Finally a week has passed so I get to do another game review! Now normally I am pretty heavily focussed on reviewing the cheap and easy, but I love American football way too much to leave off reviewing the latest instalment of Madden. In its 25th year, EA Sports have decided to call this game ummm … Madden 25, for obvious reasons.
