Games / August 20, 2017

No Man’s Sky (PS4) Mention that you play No Man’s Sky and a lot of gamers will roll their eyes and ask why you play that “boring game”.

True, I regret paying £60 to have it delivered on launch day. Then I didn’t play it for months soon afte...

Movies / January 11, 2016

Ted 2 – Extended Edition (Blu-ray + UV Copy) [2015] Ted 2 like its predecessor is a brill movie that will have you laughing out loud at the antics of Ted and John.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain PS4 Review
Games / December 6, 2015

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain – Standard Edition (PS4) The Phantom Pain had a lot to live up to. It’s predecessor MGS IV was visually stunning and immersive.

Giving it the potential for days of free roaming game play. Following on from...

The Terminator Movie Review
Movies / November 30, 2015

The Terminator [DVD] The Terminator’s been out for a rather long time and I must have watched it countless times in the past. However I got a new 4k TV a few months ago and decided to watch it.

The plot of the the movie is well known. Sarah Connor is a nor...
