Stardew Valley

Dear Eric Barone, How dare you make me enjoy farming. Stardew Valley has no right being as amazing as it is. Sincerely Mathew Perkins This is the letter I would send to Eric Barone if I had his address. It more or less sums up perfectly how I feel about Stardew Valley, the indie smash that came right out of left field and took everyone by surprise. It really is an amazing game. It’s a love letter to the lowly. It’s a masterpiece penned in the ink of the mundane. It’s so superbly simple that I just fucking love...

Final Fantasy 15 just got a whole lot bigger

The Final Fantasy: Uncovered live event, was insane. I can barely contain my excitement for both Final Fantasy 15 and the incoming universe that will be expanded upon in the leadup to the release of the game.

All in all, there were 14 major announcements to be ‘Uncovered’ during the event. 1: Hironobu Sakaguchi The creator of Final Fantasy live on stage. Had a few...

However the news has also been revealed by Gematsu, who posted a story this morning stating that not only would the game be releaseing September 30 but a brand new demo featuring Noctis, would be...

Street Fighter 5’s March Update Packs a Punch!

A much needed punch! After launching in February many felt that the game lacked, well, a whole lot of everything. Make no mistake, the street fighting aspect of Street Fighter 5 is brilliant, which funnily enough is rather important in such a game. However many felt like the absence of a decent story mode, a challenge mode, a tutorial, an improved party system or even a store to spend all the fight money you earn, was rather silly. Couple this with the tumultuous server issues during the games first weeks of release and you have all the ingredients for...

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...
