Fun, Fresh But Flawed – Hand of Fate Review (PS4/PC)

Fun, Fresh But Flawed – Hand of Fate Review (PS4/PC)

A mish-mash of games and concepts, Hand of Fate is truly intriguing. A combination of card game, Dungeons & Dragons and action RPG, Hand of Fate is a ambitious attempt to create something new. The ambition on display by developer Defiant Development is worthy of applause, the problem is, Hand of Fate is a mixed bag of success and failure. The heart of the game is a battle of wills, and luck, between the player the masked dealer. Sitting opposite the dealer, in a dark candle lit room., the cards and dealt and the game begins. The cards are split into two sections, items and encounters, the game begins and...

The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Review

The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Review

Spider-man, Spider-man, does whatever a spider can. Amazing Spider-Man is the follow up film to 2012′s, Amazing Spider-Man and sees the return of Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spiderman. I was a massive fan of the previous Spidey film and praised Andrew’s performance as both Peter and the web-slinger. He nailed something in the character that I felt like Tobey McGuire was missing in his performances in the original three films. We get that solid character and performance continued on in the second Amazing film and he continues to show that he has acting chops. WARNING: Spoilers are in-bound. Use your Spidey Senses at your own discretion. Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens...

Dark Corners: Dead Silence

Dark Corners: Dead Silence

Dark Corners is a fortnightly feature focused purely on horror. From the classics to remakes, and even the lesser known flicks, they’ll all feature. This week sees one of James Wan’s earlier films that paved the way for his success with the likes of Insidious and The Conjuring. Dead Silence is one of those tricky horror films that clearly shows a director trying to find their style. A few years before James Wan would become a mainstream success with the likes of Insidious and The Conjuring under his belt, he came to the attention of many through his work with the Saw films. Saw had it’s own definitive style both in...

Review: Supernatural — S09E05 “Dog Dean Afternoon”

Review: Supernatural — S09E05 “Dog Dean Afternoon”

Supernatural is back again this week with another “monster of the week” episode, and ends up being an extremely light-hearted and fun adventure. Spoilers Ahead: The episode opens in a taxidermist’s workshop with a man making some Game Of Thrones-esque sculptures using what appears to be a muskrat. The man hears a sound, and goes to investigate only to find nothing in the shop. He returns to his workstation and is immediately surprised by a man wearing a cowboy outfit whom then flashes a forked tongue (much like a snake) and constricts him to death, much like an anaconda would while the taxidermist’s dog, Colonel watches as his master is...

Review: The Walking Dead — S04E04 “Indifference”

Review: The Walking Dead — S04E04 “Indifference”

Season 4 is turning out to be my favorite season of the series yet, and is slowly removing the bad taste left in my mouth from Season 3, and that god-awful finale. With only four episodes in, it seems like the major “villain”/adversary for this season will be the flu like sickness that has hit the prison, and made many of the residents sick. Spoilers ahead for this episode. This episode puts the flu on the backburner, and instead focuses on two groups set out to gather supplies to hopefully aid in their survival, as well as combat the flu-like sickness that has taken its toll on some of the...
