2 hours ago

A major character will be killed off in Titan’s new Robotech series, Harmony Gold USA and Titan Comics announced today, paving the way for a stunning new arc penned by fan favorite writer Brian Wood (Dmz, Briggs Land) and legendary Transformers scribe Simon Furman.

‘Arrow: The Complete Fifth Season’ DVD Review

19 hours ago

It feels like recently I’ve been reviewing way too many superhero series. I’ve gone from the dorky style of Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow, to the slightly more serious The Flash. Now it is time to look at Arrow: The Complete Fifth Season, which takes things even more seriously.

In Arrow: The Complete Fifth Season Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) is now mayor meaning that his balance between work and being the Arrow is even more complicated. When a new nemesis in the form of Prometheus arrives in Star City, Oliver’s eyes will be opened to who he really is, and what consequences his actions have.

While there is (normally) a light-hearted feel to the other DC shows, Arrow tends to take the darker tone. This is made obvious in this season when we see Oliver not afraid to kill his enemies for what he sees as the greater good. »

Digital Shorts: ‘League of Evil’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

21 hours ago

In Digital Shorts we review some of the latest video games that are only available digitally (at least in the UK), in a short-form review format. In this edition we take a look at the popular League of Evil, released recently on the Nintendo Switch.

Shovelware is a strong and unpleasant word. It conjures up images of the kind of software that you might find on a CD-rom stuck to the front of a self-help PC magazine from the nineties, but for me, it has a second meaning. Crap re-releases.

It’s a bit harsh to describe League of Evil as crap, but it’s also not the kind of re-release I’m especially exited about, especially not when the Switch has such potential. Originally a 2011 mobile phone game, League of Evil first made waves with a super tight control scheme that defied the traditional standard of touch-screen operated platform games. »

‘Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #3.7′ Review

20 September 2017 4:01 AM, PDT

Written by Richard Dinnick | Art by Brian Williamson | Published by Titan Comics

Well, well, well, what’s this then? A Doctor Who story not wrapped up in one or two issues. Is that allowed? No complaints from me of course, as I’ve been enjoying The Wolves of Winter hugely. What’s not to like. Vikings, Ice Warriors from Mars, a sentient water virus called The Flood, a mysterious lurking alien, and of course lovely, lovely Bill. Oh yes, and The Doctor himself, mustn’t forget the star turn after all. The Flood is that bad that The Doctor manages to get the Vikings and Ice Warriors to team up against it, which they do with a little success, but that mainly helps to buy The Doctor time. He senses there is something else at play here, and we’ve waited long enough to see what, or who, that is… »

20 September 2017 3:01 AM, PDT

Digital Shorts: ’36 Fragments of Midnight’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

19 September 2017 10:01 AM, PDT

In Digital Shorts we review some of the latest video games that are only available digitally (at least in the UK), in a short-form review format. In this edition we take a look at 36 Fragments of Midnight, a brand-new platform/puzzler on the Nintendo Switch.

From Ratalaika Games, known most recently for the highly playable League of Evil, comes 36 Fragments of Midnight an ultra-simple and remarkably slight arthouse platformer.

Armed only with a double jump, your task is to navigate a single level, collect 36 star fragments while avoiding spikes and saw blades, and then return to the start. That’s it. That’s everything.

36 Fragments of Midnight claims to be “procedurally generated”, although it would be more accurate to say that the different sections – which are the same for every run-through – are simply rearranged each time you restart. In practice this conceit makes little difference to the player experience, especially »
