Another Bout of Unsolicited Kickstarter Shout-outs

Hello again everyone and, although I said last time I wouldn’t be using this blog as a Kickstarter plugging page, I’ve seen a couple of games that I feel deserve a little promotion from yours truly and can hopefully assist in whatever small way in helping them reaching their funding goals.

Game One: In the Shadows

in-the-shadows-game-teaser.mp4First up we have In the Shadows, a puzzle platformer made by Colorspace Studio where we control a man undergoing some sort of psychotherapy where he must travel back to his childhood, using light to transform the dark shadows through a variety of puzzles so that he can recover his past memories and make sense of his life.

Ratchet & Clank (2016) – The Obligatory Reboot

Ratchet_and_Clank_coverLooking back at my Ratchet & Clank review I made two years ago where I, with a great amount of hubris, promised to review all my Ratchet & Clank games (never happened) and I also urged you to get the revamped version of the classic for the PS4. Well the game has been out for a little over two weeks and, while the film has performed about as well as a outdoor barbecue in a hurricane (though I will still watch it if I get the chance), my hopes have been riding on the game being the anchor that successfully secures the franchises place in the new generation.

Apologises Once Again

Hello everyone and again it is one of those updates I put out every now and again so that people don’t think I have died or something. I am in fact om holiday at the moment and will be returning to blogging soon. I’ve got a couple of review ideas rattling around so I hope you will enjoy what I (hopefully) get round to doing. So hang in there my fatigued and miffed audience, there is stuff to come!

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – Synder v All We Love and Hoped For

batman-vs-superman-official-logo-HDGoing into this film I thought, you know  I’ve given this movie a lot of stick and I haven’t even seen it yet. Okay the reviews aren’t that great but I love films that haven’t been critically well received but I liked the 2005 version of the Fantastic Four despite it’s low critical score. I appreciated it for what that was, maybe this will be more of the same. So, taking my seat, I went into Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice with an open mind. And then the damn bust and the river of awfulness flowed free, drowning many innocents while the Masters of Marvel watched on and knew there was nothing they could do to save their franchise.

Zootopia – Furnomenal

12370858_1022009524529272_3848413103110276642_oOh God I can’t believe I used that as a headline, but in any case  Zootopia is finally out and, after hyping myself up about it from trailers, the furry fan art all over tumblr, and the interesting plot, I was pretty excited to see this film. To be honest the only thing that irked me going into this film was that it was called Zootropolis in the UK and while it’s not a bad name it just doesn’t sound as good as Zootopia. Still, with that minor irritant, I went in quite positive for Disney’s latest endevour.   Continue reading “Zootopia – Furnomenal”

Tearaway Unfolded – A Personally Crafted Experience

81BMqKqbJKL._SL1500_Sometimes come out of nowhere and burrow themselves into your brain, constantly pressing itself against your hippocampus so that you constantly think about until you finally break down in tears and rush to the nearest shop/computer and buy it to stop the incessant nagging on your cranial lobes. Tearaway Unfolded is one such game and, just to get my bias out of the way right now before people accusing me of it, yes I am reviewing Rex Crowle’s game after hyping up his Kickstarter game Knights and Bikes, but so what?!

Sonic Generations – Gotta Go Fast to the Past

SonicGenerationsSonic puts me in mind of a weird game of Russian Roulette. I see in my mind the Sonic fandom passing round a hedgehog shaped chalice, where the next fan takes a deep drink and then falls on the floor, violently retching and vomiting rings before the next fan step over the convulsing wreck, wipes off the chill dog chunks still clinging to the goblet, then quickly taking in that special brew in the hopes of a taste of the sweeter days of yore.
