Kyle Barratt

The world is full of mysterious creatures whose existence spark constant debate. Scotland have the Loch Ness monster, North America have big foot and the Himalayas have the Yeti but none can hold a candle to England's mythical beast. The Kyle Barratt has eluded scientists for decades, many doubt he even exists and is really a man from Ealing named Carl. Yet time and time again proof arrives in the form of completed and well written articles.
  • Revisiting Dead Space on its Tenth Anniversary

    On this day, a decade ago, Dead Space was released. On one hand that feels correct, especially when looking at the advancements in technology and games released since, but there’s something about Dead Space that has kept the game in my mind for all these years, festering and gnawing...
  • A Bond Retrospective: George Lazenby

    George Lazenby is the odd Bond out. An Australian car salesman who became a model. A model who became an actor in TV adverts. A TV actor who became the world’s most iconic film character. And then gave it all up after just one appearance as James Bond, refusing...
  • What Life Is Strange 2 Got Right and Wrong in its First Episode

    Spoilers for “Roads”, the first episode of Life Is Strange 2 incoming. I wasn’t expecting much when I began to play the first Life Is Strange. I came to it late, only playing it once the whole season was available for free via PlayStation Plus. It just seemed similar...
  • Ranking the Assassin’s Creed Games

    After putting over 100 hours into Assassin’s Creed Origins and its DLC over the past year, I was hoping for some time off. There’re loads of games out there that I haven’t played and annualisation ultimately damaged the Assassin’s Creed brand so I wished that the next game wouldn’t...
  • A Bond Retrospective: Sean Connery

    “Bond. James Bond.” With those famed words, the greatest single British contribution to cinema was born. A secret agent that has spawned a film series like no other. A character that is still as engaging today, after 24 films, as he was back when he dominated the global box...
  • My Hopes For Agents of SHIELD Season 6

    Agents of SHIELD is a show that has changed and grown dramatically since its debut in September of 2013. From its premiere it’s gone from strength to strength; the opening ten episodes of this past season might rival the opening ten episodes of season 3 as my favourite run...
  • Westworld Has A Death Problem

    Death is the business of Westworld. Guests flock to the futuristic immersive amusement park to kill without guilt, the robotic hosts being repaired the following night and by the next morning they remember nothing of the previous day’s murder. Survival and immortality are key parts of Westworld but moving...
  • My Hopes for The Orville Season 2

    First seasons are always hard, particularly for a series trying to be two shows at once. I enjoyed the debut season of The Orville but I struggled with what the show actually was for most of its episodes. Is it a comedy or is it a drama? I’m still...
  • Revisiting Predators

    In the run up to the release of The Predator in just a few short weeks, I’m revisiting the Predator sequels released so far; looking at what works and doesn’t work before finally sitting down to see if Shane Black can offer the ultimate Predator sequel. As I explored...
