In 2011, DC comics did the unthinkable. They scrapped over 70 years of comic book history and started again. Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and the thousands of characters were repackaged under “The New 52!” banner. Fans were not happy. Like the voices of Alderaan crying out in terror and suddenly being silenced, the legacy was gone. 5 years later, DC recognised something needed to change. DC Comics needed a Rebirth.

You don’t have to take the same path, in fact Bethesda encourage you not to do it. Continue reading “A few words on why I’m looking forward to Dishonored 2”

Continue reading “No New Assassin’s Creed this year. Ubisoft have you covered”
It’s hard keeping up with the latest video game announcements. It doesn’t help when you are being swamped with updated consoles, Lego bundles or Batman remakes.

Jessica Jones is reopening Alias Investigations this October. She’ll be brining the whiskey as we catch up with her in the aftermath of Civil War II. We join Jones in The Cellar – a prison for the deadliest super villains. Here we have the first look.
Harry Potter fever is setting the world on fire once again. The script of the play is smashing books sales and a new movie is on the way. It seems only right that we revisit the two great Lego video games based on the franchise. That’s why Warner Bros & TT Games have announced the Lego Harry Potter Collection.
Well nobody saw that coming. At Apple’s annual “We’re going to release the next iPhone” conference in New York, the tech giant came up with a massive coop. Head of Apple, Tim Cook, was explaining how iPhone and iPad hold some 500,000 games. There was one person missing. As the projection behind him went black, a familiar coin noise came through the speakers and the Mushroom Kingdom came into view. Super Mario Run is coming to smartphones.
