Bloodlines 2 Header

Disclaimer: This post mentions VTM:Bloodlines, so by law you have to go reinstall it now. Greeting all faithful followers. Your overlord has returned. Unfortunately things have been somewhat crazy behind the scenes and 925 has been a bit absent for a few months now. But rejoice we have arisen seemingly unexpectedly to the masses. And do you know what else has sprung up by surprise, to much rejoice ? That is right, VTM: Bloodlines 2. [Spends the next 3 hours running around in circles screaming EEEEEP!!!!] Ok where was I ? oh yes Bloodlines 2. Those of you old enough to remember 2004 might remember the little gem released by Troika Games. An unfinished buggy mess that was practically unfinishable […]

Fallout comes to Johannesburg, Organosphere Prieview


 Now I quite highly suspect a vast majority of our readers are familiar¬†with the Fallout game series. Considering, behind music, gaming is one of our most covered topics. Less so might be as familiar¬†with Johannesburg. Our demographics are rather spread all over the world after all. I, however, know it quite well and happen to live only about 30 or so minutes from the CBD. So you can imagine my excitement at the discovery of an upcoming indie game, set within the very heart of a post-apocalyptic Johannesburg. Or Johazardusburg as the game fictionalises it. Organosphere has been 5 or so years in development and aims to come out fully at the end of this year to early next year. […]

ReBoot: The Guardian Code Reminds us of Many Things, Unfortunately None of Them are ReBoot.

ReBoot Original

 Ah ReBoot, among the likes of Battletech and Beast Wars it was one of my favourite childhood shows. And on rewatching as an adult I gained a whole new appreciation for it. So you can imagine my excitement when I first heard there was to be a new series made. Especially after spending most of my teen to adult life (17 years apparently) with the unresolved cliffhanger from the last season. Oh boy was I in for a shock when the first trailer dropped recently. Pity it wasn’t the electro-shock therapy I’ll now need to erase all memory of that abomination from my memory. ReBoot was created in 1994 by Canadian company Mainframe Entertainment. A pioneer of its time, being […]

Curse of Tristram: Diablo II is unofficially back and looking better than ever.

Curse of Tristram logo

Diablo II is easily one of my ultimate classics in gaming. I’ve easily spent more time on it than any other game, possibly most of them combined even. I had hundreds of different characters, trying each class in multiple configurations. Now I know Diablo III is out and all the rage, but… lets face it. It’s no Diablo II. If like me you’re craving the old nostalgia days I may have found what you’re looking for. Behold The Curse of Tristram: Destructions End. The Curse of Tristram is a mod for Star Craft II currently being developed by egod123. Development started around 2014, and is still underway. This project aims to recreate DiabloII: The Lord of Destruction in the Star […]

Mutant Football League, the Return of Mutant League in all its Gory Glory

Mutant Football League

 Those of you older to remember the early games of home consoles might remember the Mutant League series for Sega Genesis. While Mutant league Hockey was probably the more well known game, Especially to those of us in the “Outside US” market, Mutant League Football was the first game of the series. Throwing you in command of teams of aliens, skeletons, and ogres duking it out on the football field. The players were armed, the fields were full of traps, and the rules were only loosely followed. It was glorious. Mutant Football League aims to take us back. Mutant Football League is the result of a Kickstarter campaign, that I sadly didn’t hear about at the time or I probably […]

SimAnt – The Perfect Game


Remember the good old days of gaming? Before micro-transactions, before loot boxes, before EA. Modern day gaming is a business. Especially under big corporations like EA. But back in the eighties and nineties developers were just passionate tech heads. One such developer was Will Wright. Before his company Maxis was assimilated into EA’s evil empire, they specialised in making simulation-based games. Simcity and the Sims probably being the two best-known franchises. Lesser known, but infinitely great was 1991’s SimAnt. Impressively detailed and accurate. Especially by the standards of early nineties computing capabilities. SimAnt throws you as the collective intelligence behind a colony of black ants. Starting in a suburban backyard you must grow and spread your way across the yard. […]

More Games!

More games! More games! There are so many games to play. Who has the time? Tacoma: What do you get if you cross the aesthetic beauty of Bioshock with the uniqueness of Systemshock? You get Tacoma, the second game from Fullbright studios. In this game you play as a member of a deep-space station, the Tacoma. Wargroove: I am not a fan of turn-based strategy games, but on rare occasions one of these games comes along with something that appeals to me. This is Wargroove. A wonderful animated turn-based strategy in which 4 players are pitted against each other in a vast and bloody war. Sonic Mania: Behold, the wedgewog is back! God, it’s been years since Sonic first appeared […]

Distrust (Video Game Preview)

I adore The Thing. I have always felt that it is one of the best franchises of all time. The characters were good, the entity was deliciously twisted, the blood and gore and wonderful. Now, I have been waiting for a new game in the franchise for some years. No luck as of yet. But! BUT! Recently an indie game inspired by this amazing franchise has been unleashed upon our world. This is Distrust. Now what we know (I’m writing this article in late June) of this indie game is this: In an isolated Arctic base people are being killed at an alarming rate. As such, you and a small rescue team are sent in to help stop the killings. […]

A few films based on H.P. Lovecraft’s Work

Tell me honestly, are you surprised that I have produced another Lovecraft article? Well if you are, then you must be new here. If not, welcome to another Lovecraftian feast. H.P. Lovecraft’s: Necronomicon, original title Necronomicon, also called Necronomicon: Book of the Dead or Necronomicon: To Hell and Back. (1993) (Thank you Wikipedia). Now this is obviously the most logical place to begin with my Lovecraftian article. In this film H.P. Lovecraft (Jeffrey Combs) gains access to the mysterious Necronomicon. He delves ever deep into its haunting pages as a myriad of ghastly stories play out before his eyes. If you adore Lovecraft then this is a film worthy of your collection. It simply oozes horror. Re-Animator (1985) This is […]

Bloody Shark Films

I enjoy killer-shark films. To be honest, I enjoy anything that pits stupid swimming humans against vicious slaughtering water beasts. It’s just a shame the humans tend to come out on top. Well, one day we’ll have a film in which EVERYONE that goes into the water gets eaten! Until then we’ll simply have to watch some wonderful killer-seafood movies. 47 Meters Down. (2017) Right, so we’ll start with the latest in killer-shark films. Welcome to 47 Meters Down. (Just ignore the Meg still on the trailer. -Ed). In this film, two morons end up trapped inside a shark cage some 47 meters underwater. (They should have just sent them a goodly length of rope.) There they are assaulted by […]
