Slender: The Arrival Review

Slender: The Arrival Review
This review contains minor spoilers. When I see an approaching bandwagon I do my best to step back and let it roll past. This is especially true when it comes to massive online trends. With homegrown pictures and videos going viral in just a matter of hours, it seems impossible to stay on top of it all these days – and who has the energy? However, now and again a bandwagon will cruise by with so much magnetism I feel compelled to hop... 

PS4: Our Impressions

PS4: Our Impressions
As most of you will know, a few days ago Sony officially announced the highly-anticipated PS4 (PlayStation 4). After about two hours of brief (albeit impressive) demos, and rather ambiguous statements about both the platform itself and upcoming games, we now have a slightly better idea of what to expect. But are things looking good for the heralded console? We share our first impressions following Wednesday night’s reveal…    StuartAfter... 

Slender: The Arrival Preview

Slender: The Arrival Preview
|Last year, Slender: The Eight Pages struck fear into the heart of many a gamer. A homage to the internet-born Slender Man mythos, this indie survival horror was short, simple and surprisingly scary. So scary, in fact, that it went viral and spawned numerous reaction videos and spin-off titles. Just a few months after its release, creator Mark Hadley had already announced a sequel – and now, that sequel has landed. Collaboratively developed...

Expo Diary: The Good, the Not-So-Good and the Plain Weird
Think back to your last London MCM Expo. There’s sure to be a highlight; a stand-out memory. It could be something as liberating as meeting the star you’ve always idolised.Or as emotional as damaging your homemade prop on the way to the venue.It might even be one of those truly “what the *beep* “moments, when something weird and wonderful has just happened but you’re not quite sure what. This is the essence of... 

Ōkami HD Review

Ōkami HD Review
We were first introduced to Amaterasu the Sun Goddess and her watercolour world six years ago (or five for those of us in the UK), with the release of Ōkami on PS2. It was a game noted for its beauty and innovative design; players had the power to affect their environment with a simple brushstroke, from making a tree blossom to inking a sun in the sky. Mastering the Celestial Brush was the only way in which Amaterasu could hope to defeat the dragon...

K-Pop Strikes Again at MBC Korean Culture Festival
Ringing ears? A sore throat? Snatches of bubbly Korean tunes going round and round in your head? If these are your symptoms, chances are you’re one of the thousands of fans still reeling from last night’s (June 23rd) MBC Korean Culture Festival, held at London‘s IndigO2. The concert starred top K-pop bands 4Minute, EXO-K and Norazo, along with other notable stage performers. It also marked 4Minute‘s second UK visit... 

Two Years Of Esprit D’Air

Two Years Of Esprit D’Air
Yesterday marked the second anniversary of British J-rock group Esprit D’Air! The group debuted on May 24th 2010, and made an appearance at that year’s October MCM Expo where they met fans and gave out signed copies of their EP Deai. Since then they have kept themselves busy with performances both at home and overseas, and with their new single The Hunter. They have gained a large fanbase over these past 24 months (currently over...

Top 10 GazettE Songs: Part 2
With their 10th anniversary today and yet another album on its way, the GazettE are racking up their accomplishments. They might not be veterans quite yet, but they’ve certainly established themselves in the J-rock big leagues and are known for their musical variety, visual kei style and – let’s not kid ourselves – Reita‘s ever-present nose band. To celebrate the group’s entry into double digits we thought we’d choose 10 of their best...
