My thoughts on the Power Rangers comics

So if you haven't noticed, The Power Rangers are celebrating a 20 year anniversary and being 'slightly' interested the fandom of The Power Rangers I've noticed that the general criticism of the series is that it isn't mature enough. Of course you should expect this from a show that's aimed at kids and a show that is arguably made on a strict budget will not take creative risks.

Bethesda’s DOOM Reveal: My Likes, Dislikes and Nitpicks

I've been playing DOOM for quite a bit of my time on this Earth, first firing up the game when I was about 10, and every now and again in the time since I've blasted away the odd demon or two, playing around with the seemingly endless supply of maps and mods from a community that still manages to bring out some great content even today, 21 years after DOOM first released.

I Hate Flappy Bird, But I Can’t Stop Playing It.

It's rare that a game so frustrating will have me wanting to stop work and play it over and over again just to get even more frustrated and close to throwing my phone through the wall. Currently that game is Flappy Bird, a game that seems to have shot to the top of every app store out of nowhere and is filling our social feeds with peoples impossible scores.

‘Gwen’ is Gwen Stacey Coming Back to Spider-man?

The Gwen Stacey thing is a weird one. It's mostly weird because of comics and the studio system. One of the things people really like about the Amazing Spider-man reboot movies, was Emma Stones portrayal of Gwen Stacey. Stone portrayed the character really well and was a fairly bad ass love interest. The issue with this of course is that Gwen dies in the comics and this scenario has been emulated in the films.

Overwatch – Diversity and Sexualisation, a sign of better things to...

Blizzcon 2014 saw the announcement of Blizzard's first new intellectual property in 17 years; Overwatch a team based first person shooter. During the games Pixar-like cinematic and gameplay trailer we met a diverse range of characters from a chirpy British test pilot who can teleport all over the place, an Indian scientist who can build turrets and portals, an Egyptian with a flying suit of armour spewing rockets and a bespectacled Gorilla. All female...apart from the Gorilla...

Can the Indies save the PS Vita?

It's coming up on two years since the release of the PS Vita and on the whole, as a Vita owner myself, its been quite lacklustre in its content. Ragnarok Odyssey was naff. Resistance: Burning Skies was fun but after one play through and with so-so multiplayer it lost appeal quickly. Rayman Origins was an incredible port but sadly not large enough to make it a killer app. WipeOut was great fun especially upon the arrival of the crossing with PS3 to bring the tracks from HD and Fury onto our tiny little screens. Even Soul Sacrifice which was tipped as being the Monster Hunter for the Vita was amazingly good but didn't garner enough interest to emulate the success of the PSP, the DS or even the Gameboy before it.

Microsoft’s anti-Chromebook ads miss the point of Google’s lightweight laptops

You may have seen some Microsoft adverts floating around the web recently that essentially laugh off Google Chromebooks, which are lightweight, and often budget, laptops that supposedly only work with an internet connection. Being a recent owner of a Chromebook these adverts seriously irritate me, not because Chromebooks are flawless, because they're not, but because what the adverts focus on aren't strictly true and Microsoft miss the chance to genuinely highlight the drawbacks of the Chromebook range and the Chrome OS that it runs...

How Titanfall’s Sequel Could Pull me Back Into the Game

Last week Respawn Entertainment's CEO Vince Zampella "confirmed" that the sequel to Titanfall was in the works, and though I was pleased to hear the news, I wasn't as excited as I was when I heard about Titanfall originally. You see, Titanfall did a lot of things well and I really enjoyed the game at first. But soon as attention dwindled elsewhere game modes became desolate and only a handful of games were populated, and though the game's DLC has just gone free forever, it piqued my interest a little but not enough to actually play the game.

Do Games Need More Licenced Music?

It's few and far between that I notice a truly great soundtrack while playing my favourite games. Yes, we have some spectacular orchestral pieces from some of the top talent in the industry, but some games are missing the chance to add something a little extra to the experience. By that, I mean licenced tracks from top selling artists, or even up and coming bands that need a bit of exposure.
