Ghost Recon: Breakpoint – Not the Worst

I’m going to be a little controversial and say that I like Ghost Recon: Breakpoint. You’ve probably seen a lot of reviews saying it’s bad. It’s not bad. But it’s not great either. I’ve been really enjoying sneaking around the beautiful world that’s sort of been insp...

A Marvel women movie, riots, and a console gets snazzy new controllers

Hello! It’s the Pretty Much Weekly and I, Jaz, return victorious from a mighty battle against the germs. Special thanks to Di who took up the Weekly helm last week! Looking at the amazing job she did, perhaps I should get sick more often.  But for now, news! The PS5 gets some nice new controllers...

UglyDolls

I didn’t think I was going to like this. I was prepared to endure a movie that was going to shove it’s admittedly good moral down my throat. I wasn’t sure I would be able to stomach it.  But it seems I have a soft spot for musicals and a musical this turned out to be. To be honest, I was s...

Win yourself some games, thanks to PriceSpy!

Another month another top five most-searched-for-games list! Our friends over at PriceSpy tell us that Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey on the PS4 has claimed the number one spot for August! This might seem a little weird since Odyssey came out October last year, but PriceSpy notes that games tend to become ...

The Emmys, Game News, and FRICKEN SPIDER-MAN’S BACK

Hello and welcome to the Pretty Much Weekly! This week, a few big things happened! Monday was American Television’s night, with awards being thrown everywhere, PlayStation and Xbox duked it out with separate live streams detailing their latest news, and also I came across a lovely little download for ...

Reboots Galore and Brad Pitt meets a real astronaut

Welcome back to the Pretty Much Weekly, you’re weekly digest of entertainment news! This week, a couple of new consoles were released, Brad Pitt went to NASA, and Google has made a little change to their algorithm that I think is potentially more bad than good.

Dora and the Lost City of Gold

I’m not quite sure what to give Dora and the Lost City of Gold. I feel very comfortable giving this a six, but almost everyone I’ve talked to found it very funny and very quotable. So six and a half it is. I do have to hand it to them, Lost City of Gold was pretty funny. Though I think a few of ...

Abominable

Funny story: when I saw the poster for this film, I wasn’t too interested in seeing Abominable. Even knowing it was made by the same people who did the amazing How to Train Your Dragon I felt pretty meh about it. But then I saw the trailer. I was sold as soon as I saw those beautiful pork buns.  ...

Erica

Erica is the kind of game I don’t like playing alone. It’s probably best suited to be played by yourself, but I know my wussy ass wouldn’t be able to get past the first act without friends. It’s not even a horror game. It’s just … tense.  The story follows a young teenage ...

Lots of Game News and Real Life Cluedo!

Usually I try to get a good balance of news from the different corners of entertainment: movies, TV, games, and collectibles. But this week is unashamedly all about my favourite corner, games. Cyberpunk 2077 did an info dump in a 14 minute stream, Nintendo dropped some bombs in their Direct this week, and a...

The Angry Birds Movie 2

Yes, this is a thing. And it’s a second thing, on top of that. But heed my words, do not judge this film by its predecessor. It is by far a greater film. Though maybe still not a great film, but one that’s worth an outing if you have to take the kids out. Since becoming a hero after saving the b...
