  • Playing Life is Strange Like I’m The Storyteller Rather Than The Player

    I saved Alyssa from being hit by the football. I saved Alyssa from being hit by the roll of toilet paper. I saved Alyssa from being splashed by the car. I saved Alyssa from being pushed into the pool. And then, when it really mattered, did I save Alyssa...
  • Celebrating 20 Years of My Favourite Star Wars Movie: Attack of the Clones

    Like with James Bond or Doctor Who, a first Star Wars movie is a formative event in a young fan’s life which will go on to inform their tastes in the franchise forever. Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones was that Star Wars movie for me. It...
  • The Best Level in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is…

    Wholly unexpected. That’s the answer to what is the best level in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. A complete surprise. It’s not an epic lightsaber duel or a huge battle. In general, the levels in the game are a bit of a disappointment. They’re fun but, because of...
  • Celebrating the Star Wars: The Clone Wars Arc That Everyone Forgets

    ‘The Lost Missions’ is a suitable subtitle for the sixth season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Even now, eight years after it debuted on Netflix, the season still feels somewhat lost and adrift. Season 5 was the original ending of the series after its cancellation and now the...

  • Out of Rupees – Pokémon Special

    This time on Out of Rupees, your hosts delve into the vast quantities of tall grass that is the Pokémon franchise. Francis, joined by Adam for the first time on the show, takes you on a journey from the heady days of the initial Poké-craze we fell in love...
  • Star Wars Resistance is Massively Underrated

    I dismissed Star Wars: Resistance when it first aired. After loving The Clone Wars and Rebels, I was eager to check out the next animated Star Wars adventure but I stopped watching after the first episode. Set on the Colossus, a giant refuelling station in the Outer Rim, the...
  • Revisiting Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

    Moving straight from Uncharted 3 to Uncharted 4, the truly insane level of innovation between the games is clear to behold. Technologically, A Thief’s End is in another league and it’s difficult to truly compare it against the earlier trilogy other than to say it’s gorgeous and plays wonderfully....
