Five horror games you should have a look at

My Top 5 Roald Dahl Filmed Works

Today we celebrate the filmed works of (and the works inspired by) one of the greatest writers of all time. Today I pick and show a few of my favourite Roald Dahl films of all time. Gremlins Now before you lose your marbles and go into a complete and total nerd meltdown let me explain my first pick. Now, Roald Dahl did not write the screenplay for the film, nor did he work alongside Spielberg and co in producing the film, but he did, in fact, inspire the creation of the film. How? He simply wrote his first book ‘The Gremlins’ in 1943 as an aid to the planned (though never realised) Walt Disney children’s film. In the book a […]

Snakes and Ladders Paint

We all remember Snakes and Ladders. Some of us loved it, some of us loathed it, but one thing we can all agree on is that it’s one of the most popular games over all time. So obviously, in the 21st century, someone has created a video game version. And by someone we mean the lads at ZebritoStudio. [youtube id=”UsjJTjPdr5A” width=”600″ height=”350″] The game plays like any game of Snakes and Ladders, however in this fun, child friendly version, each player takes command of a brightly coloured and smiley little chap that takes on either CPU or friends in their attempt to climb a ladder to success, and avoid sliding down the snake of defeat. Game features include: Two game modes […]

Alien: The Adora Files – Interview

I love the ALIEN franchise. So anyone that makes a fan film is a boss in my book. So it’s with great joy I introduce the man behind Alien: The Adora Files. Would you care to introduce yourself? Hello there, thank you for having me. My name is Felix Christian Berner, I am 29 years young, German, I have a degree in design, and I am the director, producer, writer and editor of ALIEN: THE ADORA FILES. So why Alien: The Adora Files? Why not? *joking* – I am a gigantic ALIEN/ALIENS fan since I saw ALIENS in the young age of 8! I was extremely fascinated by the Colonial Marines and their heroic fight/loose against the evil Alien creatures! […]

Hit by the rebels – Faderhead’s Fistful of F*ck Yous

Remember 2D side-scroller arcade fighting games; those wonderfully plain yet eternally entertaining masterpieces like Ninja Turtles and Double Dragon that got bad sound effects stuck in your head for days? Those were the days right? Now you can relive your probably less-happy-than-you-like-to-admit childhood while enjoying some modern Electro, EBM, Industrial tunes simultaneously. The game is called Faderhead’s Fistful of F*ck Yous, and it is based on their 2012 song by the same name from their 5th album; World of Faderhead. This brawler was programmed voluntarily by Trev Nethers using the Open Beats Of Rage game-engine, so says the official site.

E3 Trailers and Hype Galore – Part 3

This is part 3 of this 3-part article series and I admit I had a hard time forcing myself away from videos such as Mass Effect Andromeda and Need for Speed’s trailers. If you haven’t yet seen the previous two parts, you should return and read them first for your completionism achievement or something. The final chapter isn’t any less important though. Rico Cause has not yet destroyed enough in his escapades and now returns to his home town to do what he does best, wreck it like Ralph never could. We see a series of legend revived in modern style and happily welcome back King of Daventry, Sir Graham. No Man’s Sky takes us to an impressively rendered galaxy […]

E3 Trailers and Hype Galore – Part 2

In the second part of this 3-part article, we have more eye candy from the realm of E3. This year has brought us a lot to be excited about and even more to be weary of, for where there are high hopes there is bound to be terrible disappointment… eventually. Need for Speed returns to thrill the speedsters in all of us and by the looks of it we might see a return to form for the series, and it’s high time too. Batman Arkham Knight got a decent gameplay demo. Uncharted 4 continues the proud tradition of its predecessors by impressing us as usual. Bethesda unveils the new Doom, because having been doomed at least 3 times before hasn’t […]

E3 Trailers and Hype Galore – Part 1

For those of you who don’t know, one of the two major events that make gamers notice just how poor they really are was held in Los Angeles from 16-18 June. This event is known as the Electronic Entertainment Expo or E3, and much like a Steam Summer Sale, it dangles all the upcoming games that you really want and really can’t afford in front of your greedy little human eyes and expects you to shower it in the money, and undoubtedly tears due to the debt you made to do so. Regardless of how much we hate to love and love to hate E3, we peer into its bag of goodies willingly each year like a pack of mangy […]

Hit by the Rebels – Watch_dogs

 

 Ever wanted to learn to hack things because it just looks and sounds so technically cool but never had the patience, skills, resources or ever brain-power to do so?
