‘Switch or Die Trying’ Review (PC)

17 hours ago

Platform games had to adapt to survive in the latest generations of gaming, and they did so in many ways. You have the 3D style where the open world environment extended the way platforms were interacted with, then you had the ones that stayed 2D (or 2D.5) and upped the challenge. This is where Switch or Die Trying finds its home, in the challenge.

Much like Super Meat Boy, the idea behind Switch or Die Trying is to take a fairly simple character and put them through hell to make it through a system of complicated levels. Where Switch or Die Trying differs is that to reach extra heights you can change the character from a small I to a capital one.

Adding to the ability to jump higher, there is also the ability to shoot at objects to change their state. These states can also be altered when you »

Graphic Novel Review: ‘Doctor Who – Supremacy of the Cybermen’

19 hours ago

Written by Cavan Scott, George Mann | Art by Ivan Rodriguez, Walter Geovanni | Published by Titan Comics

The Cybermen, bar none, have always been my favourite Dr Who villains. In fact, not only my favourite Who villains, but in my top ten of science fiction villains ever. I could also bore you with reasons why they are not ‘villains’ as such in my mind, but unless you have a beer in your hand and a few hours to spare I’ll excuse you for now. It’s not just me of course, so why are the Cybermen so popular? I think, like the Daleks, they tap into two areas of the human mind. A fear of technology, of technology surpassing us and then suppressing us. Fear also of being imprisoned, of being turned into something we don’t want to be and something we cannot ever escape from.

‘The Walking Dead 7×14: The Other Side’ Review

21 hours ago

Stars: Andrew Lincoln, Chandler Riggs, Melissa McBride, Chad Coleman, Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Lennie James, Sonequa Martin-Green, Alanna Masterson, Christian Serratos, Jeffrey Dean Morgan | Created by Robert Kirkman

The war is nearing and tensions are running high in The Walking Dead, so now is the time for people to do stupid things. This means of course it is time for Rosita (Christian Serratos) and Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) to visit the Saviours. With Rosita and Sash on their way to try to take down Negan, this is also perfect time for the Saviours to pay a visit to the Hilltop.  With Gregory (Xander Berkeley) looking to get rid of some of the annoyances in his little domain, this may put Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and Daryl (Norman Reedus) in danger.

What Rosita and Sasha’s little vendetta has had so far is any real interest. It is easy to assume that it will fail, »

‘Operation Avalanche’ DVD Review

23 hours ago

Stars: Matt Johnson, Owen Williams, Krista Madison, Tom Bolton, Sharon Belle, Josh Boles, Madeleine Sims-Fewer, Joe Thomas | Written by Matt Johnson, Josh Boles | Directed by Matt Johnson

1967: the height of the Cold War. The CIA suspects there is a Russian mole inside of Nasa, sabotaging the Apollo program. They send two young agents on a mission to go undercover, posing as documentary filmmakers, there to capture Nasa’s race to the moon. The real mission – use their access and technology to hunt down the leak. But what they discover is far more shocking than soviet spies… Their government may be hiding a secret about Apollo that could define the decade, and the White House will stop at nothing to silence anyone who learns it.

Comspiracy theories. There’s a million of them. The biggest? That man never landed on the moon in 1969 and instead the whole Apollo 11 mission was an elaborate hoax. »

‘Alien and Predator Figurine Collection: Xenomorph’ Review

21 March 2017 11:01 AM, PDT

With the upcoming release of Alien: Covenant, we get a glimpse of the origins of the Xenomorph. To fans though, it will always begin with Alien. The moment the creature rips itself from the chest of John Hurt is one of the most iconic moments in movie history. This is why my review of the Alien and Predator Figurine Collection starts with the original Xenomorph.

Looking at the impressive little statue, which is 1:16 scale (around 14cm tall) there is plenty of detail in the design of the figurine, and there has to be. H.R. Giger’s alien creation was a work of art, that not only created the monster itself but also the ship it originated from in the Alien movie (in egg form of course).

A nice touch with the Alien design is to have a few little props from Alien included on the Xenomorphs little stand. You »

Well it had to happen didn’t it? We’ve had sharks of every kind from The Asylum and the Syfy channel: Zombie Sharks, Ghost Sharks, Swamp Sharks, Ice Sharks… Now we have and Entire Planet of sharks!

In the near future, glacial melting has covered 98% of earth’s landmass. Sharks have flourished, eating all underwater life.They now dominate the planet, operating as one massive school led by a terrifyingly greedy mutated alpha-shark. The only human survivors live in terror of the predators, and it s up to them and them alone, to take down the gigantic leader shark and make the seas safe again.

Well, well. What a surprise Planet of the Sharks turned out to be. »

They’ve been referred to as “American Pickers for 80′s babies”, and “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives for nerds”.

They drive. They hunt. They interact. A never-ending search for all things nostalgia related, from comic books to toys, movie memorabilia to long-forgotten pieces of pop culture history. Visiting comic book & toy stores, pop culture events, comic cons, flea markets, antique malls, personal collections, and anywhere they think they can (and do) find cool stuff.

They are Comic Trips… The best YouTube channel you’ve never heard of! However we aim to change all that – which is why we’re bringing the show into the Nerdly fold and sponsoring the latest season.

‘Anno Dracula 1895: Seven Days in Mayhem #1′ Review

20 March 2017 11:01 AM, PDT

Written by Kim Newman | Art by Paul McCaffrey | Published by Titan Comics

The horror comics renaissance of recent times seemingly continues with the arrival of Anno Dracula by Kim Newman. Kim Newman should need no introduction to horror fans, being a critically acclaimed writer and critic, and the fact he is not just licensing but also writing his ‘baby’ obviously bodes very well indeed. This new series, together with some new Anno Dracula novels out this year too, will expand his fictional universe nicely.

Anno Dracula began life as an early 1990′s novel, with Kim Newman doing the Alan Moore-esque thing of intertwining a fictional narrative with real historical personalities, creating a different yet familiar alternate timeline. This is a world split, between humans who have chosen to ‘turn’, and those who have chosen not to. The initial book saw Jack the Ripper killing prostitutes, as per our real world history, »

‘Legion 1×06′ Review

20 March 2017 5:01 AM, PDT

Stars: Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Aubrey Plaza, Jean Smart, Mackenzie Gray, Scott Lawrence, Katie Aselton, Tatyana Forrest, Jeremie Harris, Bill Irwin, Amber Midthunder | Created by Noah Hawley

Legion had a definite theme this week, and that is about holding back. Whether it is David (Dan Stevens) being held back by Lenny (Aubrey Plaza), or the bullets that are set to ruin everybody’s day.

While an episode which is set back in the mental hospital may put the fear into many fans that this would be a weak episode, there really wasn’t anything to worry about. What we see is David being put in a protective reality, just a shame it is Lenny (or as we now know her, the Devil with the Yellow Eyes) that appears to be in control. What is interesting about the setting of this episode is how David’s reality uses a lot of »

Online gaming in 2017

20 March 2017 2:01 AM, PDT

No one quite expected online gaming to take off in the way it has. Back in the old days of dial up, the idea that we could play all sorts of games at the click of a button was far in the future, but now its swiftly becoming one of the most popular forms of entertainment. Now, we’re seeing the increasingly rich world of video games begin to incorporate a stronger online focus, including shifting their games to online platforms. This includes popular forms of gaming you’d normally find on consoles and PCs.

As a result, the world of online gaming has acquired a diverse and thriving community of players with a diverse range of interests and preferences. But why is this exactly? Put simply, the progress that we’ve made in technology in the last ten years now means that almost anything is possible; all you really »
