Arseface, this is the World. World, meet Arseface.

The Walking Dead, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, The Flash, Gotham. What do all these have in common? (I mean, apart from being a really rad list of recent TV Series.) They are all graphic novels, or comics if you prefer to call them that. Over the last half decade, more often than not, the best TV has taken inspiration directly from the pages of some of the most well known graphic novels of our time. The next series to be treated to the ol’ idiot-box transition, is Preacher. Preacher tells the story of, well, a preacher, as he searches for...

Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth

Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth is the best damn Pokemon game I have played in years. Flashback to 1999. I was a nerdy little kid starting his highschool journey. The only things I cared about consisted of being one of the ‘cool’ kids and Pokemon.

I am Setsuna is Heading West

The photos were posted to reddit earlier today by user perkele37 who claims that the slightly odd, football shaped controllers are for the dev-kit of the new system. He also goes on to tease us with a few other small details regarding these…. things…. • Only the upper ‘nubs’ of the sticks move. • The rollers on the top feel and look pretty much identical to a mouse scroll-wheel. • Haptic feedback feels like Apples ‘taptic’ engine. Not like regular rumble. • 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom The photos are eerily similar to...

Wii U to Halt Production

The Wii U will allegedly halt production of new units in 2016. Effectively putting an end to the consoles troubled life. The cancellation news came in the form of a report from Japanese newspaper ‘The Nikkei’. The newspaper goes on to state that while the Wii U is being cancelled, it’s successor, codenamed the Nintendo NX is due to be released this year. While halting production seems to be the final nail in the Wii U’s coffin, it does not mean that the console will disappear completely. It is more likely that Nintendo wants to burn through the remaining...
