Win an Astronomical Gravity Goody Bag

Win an Astronomical Gravity Goody Bag
To celebrate the release of Gravity on Blu-Ray and DVD, as well as its success at the Academy Awards (wining a total of seven Oscars), we’re giving you the chance to win a spectacular Gravity goody bag! Dr. Ryan Stone (Bullock) is a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (Clooney) in command of his last flight before retiring.

The 2014 BAFTA Award Nominations

The 2014 BAFTA Award Nominations
The full list of this year’s BAFTA nominations has now been revealed, with Gravity, 12 Years A Slave and American Hustle dominating: Gravity claims 11 nominations while 12 Years A Slave and American Hustle have 10 each.

That...

The brainchild of director and co-writer, Alfonso Cuarón (Children of Men), alongside his son Jonas, this dazzling...

Inversion preview
Inversion is a game that few people I speak to have heard or know much about, but I have no doubt that this will all change in the coming weeks when the amazing shooter hits consoles with a gravity-defying bang!

The single player story sees aliens (at least I assume they’re aliens) known as the Lutadores invade the city and take over with their... 

Inversion multiplayer preview

Inversion multiplayer preview
Inversion has managed to do the seemingly impossible and bring a fresh take into the 3rd person shooter genre. Whilst the core gameplay remains noticeably “Gears-like”, Inversion adds something to the successful formula in the form of gravity manipulation. The only mode playable in the preview build was Deathmatch (free for all), but other multiplayer modes that will be available in the full game include: Team Deathmatch, Hourglass (capture...
