Foam Clay Review

Foam Clay is the hot new product on the cosplay scene, already being used by international superstars like Kamui Cosplay and Vera Chimera. But what exactly is Foam Clay, and is it really that good? We got our hands on some and gave it a test! Straight out of the container, Foam Clay is a malleable dough. It...

6 Games You Can Play On A Potato

They say “write what you know” and while I don’t know who “they” are I do know good advice when I see it. I happen to find myself in a situation where the only gaming I can afford to indulge myself in comes through the medium of a crappy ASUS laptop that was absolutely not made for gaming or photo editing o...

Adrift

Okay, I honestly don’t know if I’ve ever had such a visceral reaction at the movies. I’ve never squirmed as much, tensed as much or made so much noise! And before you call me a wimp, I wasn’t the only one either! Whenever I winced at another shocking moment, I’d look over and see my best friend Reuben...

Sicario: Day of the Soldado

Guns, guns, guns and they all come with the fingers to pull them. But where is the heart of it all? It’s probably in Benicio’s eyes as he empties another clip. I don‘t even know what that means, but it sounds cool. I guess. But just like this movie, it’s kinda pointless in the end. F...

Istanbul: Digital Edition – As Close to a Market as You’ll Get with a Board Game

My take on board game ports has increasingly been “yes please”. So I was excited to see Acram Digital bringing Rüdiger Dorn’s Istanbul to mobile, especially with it being such a high-scorer on Board Game Geek. I have to admit that I’ve never played the physical board game. But I’m no stranger to similar eco...

Skyscraper (brought to you by Duct Tape)

It may be able to fix all wounds and help Dwayne Johnson stick to the side of crazy tall buildings, however, no amount of duct tape can save Skyscraper from being a pretty terrible film. In saying that, I still enjoyed it! I just really wanted to highlight how terrible every mention of duct tape in Skyscrap...

Book Club

I once heard my mum talking to her friends about 50 Shades of Grey and she said, “There are two types of people that read this book; those that liked it and aren’t getting any, and those that hated it and are. And let me tell you, I HATED it!” And that’s basically what this movie is about. Let me begin by f...

LEGO Incredibles

Nothing will ever beat the experience that was the first LEGO Star Wars game. That’s why, though still good, every other LEGO game succeeding it was still somehow slightly disappointing. LEGO Incredibles is the same, however I reckon it comes the closest to the glory of LEGO Star Wars. The one thing I...

Florence and Me: My Relationship with a Mobile App

As I write this, I have a warm cup of coffee on my desk. I’ve lit a candle. The mellow strains of the compositions of Kevin Penkin (the composer for Florence‘s soundtrack) are piping through my speakers. Because if Florence has taught me anything, environment, feeling and, as the Danish say, the...

The Crew 2

As a gamer, I have never been one for racing games. Sure, Mario-Kart and Crash Team Racing are two of the greatest games of all time but that’s because weapons make racing games better. I have never really been attracted to the more realistic racing simulators. When the opportunity arose to review The...

Ant-Man and the Wasp

I’m going to get a little critical in this review, so I want to say up front that I friggin’ loved Antman and the Wasp and consider it a more-than-worthy final MCU release for 2018. For me, that unique feeling you get heading into a new Marvel film was magnified for the Peyton-Reed-directed Antman and...

Warhammer 40k: Inquisitor Martyr

Warhammer 40k, let’s face it. It’s the most badass sci-fi universe. There is a mountain of law attached to it, it’s massive and I’m definitely a fan of it. I’ve got a bookshelf full of stories and a Steam account bloated with wayyyy too many hours spent. It all points to an imagination spent in a univ...
