Sackboy: A Big Adventure

I’ve bemoaned the lack of good kids games in recent years. Little Big Planet and now spin-off Sackboy: A Big Adventure are a few of the great ones. It’s a co-op game, so I asked Di to come over, drink Bailey’s and play it with me. After a sweet and also terrifying cutscene, we drop into the super cute realm of Craftworld. Everything from the buildings to the grass is made of colo...

PlayStation 5 – The Review

We were completely flabbergasted when Sony came to us and were like, do you want to review the PlayStation 5? Our response was, “Uhh, heck yes!” I have been a fan of the PlayStation since I got a PS2 for Christmas way back in 2000. So being able to review the latest generation is an absolute honour. This probably means I’m coming at the system with a bit of a bias. I mean, I had ...

Great quality, great price – the JBL Quantum 400!

I have always been impressed with the quality of JBL products. I have several bluetooth speakers from JBL and have always raved about them. So, I was excited to see if these headphones measured up. And going by my spoiler of a title, I was impressed. The Quantum 400 is the mid-range option in a new series of seven gaming headsets, providing comfort to your wallet as well as your ears. The 400 has ...

Keep Calm & Carrion

Playing as the bad guy has always been an interesting and appealing approach to gaming. Whether it’s obvious you’re the bad guy from the get go or a twist at the end that leaves your jaw on the ground (and there are a few amazing games that spring this on you in the final few moments of the game but I won’t spoil them here!), there is always something extremely appealing about gaming as a villain....

Patapon 2 Remastered Review

I’m a recent and eagar convert to rhythm games so, while I haven’t played either of the original games, I jumped on the opportunity to review Patapon 2 Remastered. It’s a port of a popular 2008 PSP game with a facelift for the big screen. The premise for Patapon 2 is pretty simple. You play as a god who is rallying your tribal people towards victory, and reaching the promised land of Earthend, thr...

Ben and Ashton review The Real Housewives of Orange County and Atlanta

It’s 2006. The world is reeling from the news that Pluto is no longer a planet; teens everywhere are finally ‘Breaking Free’ from social expectations thanks to Troy and Gabriella’s burgeoning romance; and a media franchise is about to launch that will become a sprawling epic, lasting over 12 years and spawning eight U.S. spin-offs and another 10 internationally from New Zealand to Hungary. The Rea...

Atomic Blonde

I never thought I would enjoy a movie that’s essentially about a woman beating a whole bunch of men to death quite so much. Set in Berlin in 1989, Atomic Blonde is an action thriller that proves a woman can quite deftly step into James Bond’s shoes. There’s big 80’s hits from Queen, Depeche Mode and Goldfinger, and some fantastically long action scenes. If that all sounds good then Atomic Blonde i...

Review: Detention

I’m someone who likes to trick myself into thinking I can handle, even enjoy, the horror genre. So when the opportunity to review Detention popped up I was all like ‘pfft yea of course I can handle it LOL’. After all, it’s basically a point and click side-scrolling game  with 0% combat and I played a million of those in the 90s.  I think I managed about ten minutes on my ow...

The Shallows

When medical student Nancy Adams (Blake Lively) seeks solace on a secluded beach in Mexico following the death of her mother, she is unaware that she’ll soon be fighting for her life against a menacing great white shark with a vicious grudge against humanity. The Shallows is a tense survival thriller from director Jaume Collet-Serra (House of Wax, Orphan). It’s a short movie, with a running time o...

Kimleng takes us through the features of the Ip Man trilogy box set and lets us know his thoughts on the series. Currently on the road to becoming a Wing Chun master himself…saying he’s a fan is a bit of an understatement! Ip Man is a series of Hong Kong biographical martial arts films starting with Ip Man in 2008 and followed by two sequels – Ip Man 2 (2010) and Ip Man 3 (2015). The f...

Ajin: Demi Human. Season 1 Review

I enjoyed watching Ajin: Demi Human.  My Netflix account recommended it to me and I ended up watching 12 episodes in a row.  It tackles the dark aspects of the human nature including murder, apathy and suicide (to name a few). It is suitable for 18+ and over as the show can be disturbing at times. Overview The story primarily centres on Kei Nagai, a highschool kid who discovers he is an immortal ‘...
