The endgame is near: I follow a trail of my dead allies to a concrete tower that rises from the battlefield.  A flash of boots catches my eye, dashing up a set of stairs to my right. I sprint after them, arriving at the top of the staircase just in time to see one of the militia forces aiming their rifle scope out of the window. Silently positioning myself behind them, I grab their head and twist it 180 degrees to score the final points and end the game.

Assassin’s Creed Unity: Six Things I Am Excited About

Navigation
The animations for traversing the city have been overhauled and look fantastic.

Rooftop Film Club Review: True Romance

True Romance

This week I checked out the Rooftop Film Club in Peckham for my film review. To be honest, there’s not a lot that needs to be said for the Quentin Tarantino classic; it’s got a top notch cast, a suitably chaotic spaghetti western storyline and a couple of outrageous moments which are borderline offensive and hilarious.

Runtime: 89 minutes

Scarlett Johansson stars in Luc Besson’s Sci-fi romp and is surrounded with a talented supporting cast including: Morgan Freeman, Amr Waked, Min-Sik Choi, Julian Rhind-Tutt (it was weird seeing the guy from ‘The Green Wing’ as the cheerful English translator for a Korean organised crime syndicate.)
