Death Stranding

Question: What do you get when you take Norman Reedus and Mads Mikkelsen throw them into a massive open-world environment that is filled with action, adventure and danger; and then get Guillermo del Toro to direct? Answer: One of the most anticipated games in history. This is Death Stranding. Right, so we know a good deal about this game. For one, there is going to be a multiplayer mode. I’m hoping it’s going to be a little like F.E.A.R 3, only better. The game is based around a short story written by Japanese master Kobo Abe (7 March, 1924 – 22 January, 1993). The game is the brainchild of Hideo Kojima -the master games maker from the amazing Kojima Productions who have […]

A Few New Games

Another day, another list of games to go through. Yooka-Laylee: I adore platform games. There is something wonderful in running around like a loon, jumping over enemies, and scrambling over the environment. Case in point, Team 17 has recently unleashed a mental platform game upon the world. Welcome to the madness that is Yooka-Laylee. Cuphead: Now we’ve been waiting for this game for a couple of years; and now, after an eternity of semis, we shall finally get our hands upon the indie run-and-gun we’ve needed. Produced by Canadian’s Chad and Jared Moldenhauer this game -taking a lot of inspiration from 1930’s cartoons- revolves around a Cuphead, a character who has to fight a number of vicious enemies in order […]

Defy The Tide: Soteria (Album Review)

 

 There is nothing like an aggressive little EP to start your morning with. In fact, EP’s are such a wonderful way of starting your morning with an almighty kick that they should be a universal law. This is Defy The Tide with the brutal “Soteri“. The songs on this 4 track EP are the epitome of everything that is true of Metal: inhumane sounds and alien vocals drowned in a bath of creative insanity. Traced in Flames Catalyst Primrose Path A Spectre in Silence Each and every song on this album is packed with a punch that is made from the glorious combination of aggression, charm and soul shredding lyrics. It’s a wondrous way to begin your day. Bottom line, […]

Metro: Exodus

Well, E3 has come and gone, and in its wake we have been left a veritable smorgasbord of new games, technology and esoteric concepts. (MMO’s confuse Raven. -Ed) Now one of the games that has truly moistened a few pairs of Morph-Man’s britches is the long awaited sequel (Third in the series! -Ed) to the amazing Metro 2033 and Metro: Lastlight. This is *Insert drum roll here* Metro: Exodus. Now for those that have not played the Metro series let me give you a little background information. The games are based on the best selling novel series from Russian author Dmitry A. Glukhovsky, in which, as usual, the world has gone to pot and a small number of survivors are […]

PIG: Swine & Punishment (Album Review)

 

 I have loved Industrial music for nearly two decades. Fuck, I’m old. Anyway, I’ve loved this band and this genre for a long time. So it’s with extreme happiness, and a vast amount of enthusiasm, that I get to review this brutal album. This is the legendary PIG, with the brilliant “Swine & Punishment“. The songs on this album are remixes by some of the best bands in the scene -except for ‘Violence‘, it’s simply ‘Violence‘. (It’s a violent track. -Ed) Remixes on this album come from bands as diverse as Skold and London After Midnight to bands as unique as Mortiis and the delicious KANGA. Viva Evil (Oumi Kapila Remix) Found In Filth (Pull Out Kings Remix) The Diamond Sinners […]

Elex

I adore the Fallout series. I equally adore Skyrim. (Oblivion was good, but could have been better. -Ed) I also love open world games. So you can imagine how excited I was when I found out about a game that combines all the best elements of these games and then takes it up a notch. This is the mouthwatering ELEX. From what we know of this upcoming game it seems as if we are going to be in for another long-haul adventure that is going to take many, many months to complete. Now the game takes place in the future on a decimated world where the player is thrown into the middle of a war for precious and powerful resources […]

Colossal Street Jam: Living Free (Album Review)

 

 There is something beautiful in the combination of Rock and Blues. There is a depth to the combination that is both invasive and titillating. One might say that it plucks at heart strings while ripping your lungs out, while the neighbourhood is aflame. Then to top off this amazing experience you realise that all this happening is caused by the wondrous Colossal Street Jam with their amazing album “Living Free“. Now the songs on this 11 track album are exactly the sort of music you’d expect from a band made of veteran musicians. There is a ’70’s funk to the group. An ’80’s Rebel yell. A ’90’s uniqueness, and a modern cry of havoc from the 21st century. It’s exactly […]

Fortnite

Now I do not know about you, but I thoroughly enjoyed Team Fortress. It was a brilliant game. I got such a kick out of building defences, using unique abilities, blowing Raven off of a bridge three-dozen times. Ah, happy days. Now another thing I’ve enjoyed is fighting off waves of monsters and undead creatures, with the aid of my friends. And watching Raven get blown off of a bridge. So it should come as no surprise to you that when I found out about Epic Games, forthcoming project ‘Fortnite‘ I was blown away… like Raven, off a bridge. Now the reason I am excited about this game is quite simple: It has large nipples covered in cream-cheese. No! That […]

Adam West (19 September, 1928 – 9 June, 2017)

By now many of you will know that the most famous Batman of all time has passed away. No, Raven, not Ben Affleck. He’s still alive and well… maybe. Who cares? No, it is with an acid reflux filled heart that we say “Farewell!” to the great Adam West. Now Adam West was not the first to play Batman (That went to Lewis Gilbert Wilson -28 January, 1920 – 9 August, 2000.) Nor was Mr. West the most successful of all Batmen (That would be Christian “The Angry Man” Bale.) But he was the most popular and long-lived live-action Batman ever! Now this iconic sixties series was the epitome of the “Groovy Age.” It was, for those that have not […]

RTS games you should and shall play (2017)

I adore RTS (Real Time Strategy) games. I do. There is something wonderful about unleashing vast armies against your foes and indulging in a little intergalactic slaughter. Total War: Arena Now the first game on my list is an upcoming free-to-play monster created by the Creative Assembly. In this game, you and nineteen! YES! 19! You and nineteen others get a few units each with which to engage in absolute and total bloody warfare over a number of unique battlefields! Battlefleet Gothic: Armada The second game on my list came out last year. I’m more than a little surprised that it has not received as much attention as it should have. Set in the Warhammer 40K universe the game allows […]
