Pacific Rim Preview

Pacific Rim Preview
Warner Brothers invited a select few to lunch today at the Vue Cinema in Leicester Square London for a preview of footage from Pacific Rim. Now all I can think about is robots and punch-ups. No, not like Rock-em Sock-em Robots, I mean huge towering titan mech warriors the size of skyscrapers taking on otherworldly aliens. Aliens which are so colossal and brutally destructive in their various forms that they make Godzilla look like an unhappy gecko... 

Halo: Forward Unto Dawn Dvd/Blu-ray Review

Halo: Forward Unto Dawn Dvd/Blu-ray Review
Live action film tie-ins to games have come a long way since their dreaded beginnings, where the most we initially saw was the distant and weak links to our favourite games. Developers are now working hand-in-hand with big screen studios, even going so far as to create their own studios for films which help expand on an existing franchise to wider audiences. It’s safe to say that within the last few years live action shorts (such as Assassin’s... 

Defiance Beta Hands On

Defiance Beta Hands On
SyFy’s new show Defiance will start airing in April 2013. So far it looks to be a fantastic show with a beautiful blend of survival, character profile development and big flashy battles. Who doesn’t like big flashy battles? Set during the aftermath of an interspecies war held on Earth, aliens and mankind have come to co-exist to survive on the war torn planet. With no main body of government, frontier cities such as Defiance are the closest thing... 

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone Review

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone Review
The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is a true celebration of all that made us treasure the impossibilities of the universe. From the first magician you saw who could pull out a coin from behind your ear, or stick playing cards to the ceiling, as children we were astounded by the simple thought that anything could be possible. And while The Incredible Burt Wonderstone sometimes takes you along the lines of the somewhat cringeworthy and twisted dark humour... 

Interview with Cas Anvar the voice of Altair

Interview with Cas Anvar the voice of Altair
Released on the 31st of October, Assassin’s Creed III is set to bring about the revolution on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Just before that however at the MCM Expo in London, the voice actor for Altair from Assassin’s Creed Revelations, Cas Anvar, took to the stage to give a talk about his experiences on being the legendary master assassin. While Cas was able to give a panel on his experiences, I got a chance to have a one to one chat with...

Assassin’s Creed III Uplay Actions and Rewards revealed!
With three weeks until the highly anticipated Assassin’s Creed III releases in UK stores, the Ubisoft Uplay server has been updated to account for the next title in its ongoing series of Templars vs Assassins. For those gamers who don’t hang around on the title screen of their favourite game but jump straight into the action: Uplay is something which Ubisoft has been working on for the last three years and is a unified hub for all of its leading... 

New Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance trailer

New Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance trailer
The Tokyo Game Show has yet another Konami treat this year as we get to see a new trailer for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. After the MGS: Ground Zeros announcement, it’s easy to see how the Raiden spin-off game could be completely overshadowed but from the trailer below I feel many will agree that there’s such a different direction for gameplay and style; comparison will become near impossible and therefore Revengeance will have more than... 

Why not cosplay all the time?

Why not cosplay all the time?
We all love our cosplay, and we all love looking stylish…well, I don’t care much about style first thing in the morning, but I like announcing my ‘geekdom’ when I pick my outfit for the day. This being the case, I never thought I’d be writing about fashion, but I just can’t resist sharing the awesomeness of this latest release – guaranteed to satisfy geeky fashionistas! The ‘one-man company’ Volante Design has pushed... 

Akaneiro: Demon Hunters

Akaneiro: Demon Hunters
Announced back in April Akaneiro went a little ‘under the radar’ until now. Developers Spicy Horse have looked to put their colourful and picturesque twist on the story of Little Red Riding Hood. Bear in mind this is from the same developer of the artistic and somewhat frightening American McGee’s Alice: Madness Returns. This iteration takes its setting from Feudal Japan and seems a little more slash happy than the American interpretations....
