Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus - E3 2017 Trailer Breakdown Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus - E3 2017 Trailer Breakdown

In 2014, MachineGames and id Software released Wolfenstein: The New Order. Despite being a fan of the developer’s previous titles, I came into the latest in the Nazi-killing game series with little expectations. What I got was my favourite game of that year and one of my favourite shooters of all time. So, to say I am…

Concept Art Writing Prompt: The Alien at the Dinner Table (Redux) Concept Art Writing Prompt: The Alien at the Dinner Table (Redux)

So, about three years ago (holy shit!) the above image was used in io9's concept art writing prompt series, and - at the time - I struggled to write a decent story for it. For some reason, it recently popped into my head and I managed to get something written and pop it on Facebook. So, for your reading pleasure, here…

Ghostbusters (2016) - The Dan Review  Ghostbusters (2016) - The Dan Review 

In the 2016 reboot of Ghostbusters, there’s a lot new: a brand new team; a bunch of new ghosts; new headquarters, and; a new writer/director in Paul Feig. Yet, despite all of this the movie is definitely, inherently Ghostbusters –fun, funny, with a team that has undeniable and infectious chemistry and a few decent…

Fantastic Arrow/The Flash Promo Showcases the "Superhero Fight Club" Fantastic Arrow/The Flash Promo Showcases the "Superhero Fight Club"

This week has been fairly Marvel centric, what with the build up to Age of Ultron, Daredevil launching on Netflix and a new Ant-Man trailer debuting, so it's quite surprising that DC and The CW had this ace up it's sleeve: a 3 minute promo showcasing Arrow, The Flash, Arsenal and The Black Canary going up against Ra's…

Brandon Routh's Atom Costume is Excellent Brandon Routh's Atom Costume is Excellent

Here's a first look at the full costume Brandon Routh will be wearing on Arrow and The Flash. I, for one, am very impressed - the scale and design of the two CW shows has grown in confidence since they both started and this really cements the ambition of the teams involved.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Review Captain America: The Winter Soldier Review

One of the bigger issues facing the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the presence of a credible threat - sure, Loki (of Thor and Avengers fame) is a charismatic and powerful villain, but his goals always seem empty - devoid of any real danger. Iron Man Three and Thor The Dark World also both had villains that had little…

The Last of Us' Terrible Autosave Bug The Last of Us' Terrible Autosave Bug

Naughty Dog's The Last of Us contains a pretty awful autosave bug, demonstrated in the YouTube video above. If, at any time, you see "Autosaving. Please wait..." appear four times in the pause menu (and it doesn't get replaced with a confirmation message of when the game last saved) then this means your game has not…

Who is John Hurt's Doctor? My Theory is... Who is John Hurt's Doctor? My Theory is...

Having just finished re-watching David Tennant's run on Doctor Who I was suddenly struck by a theory as to who John Hurt's Doctor really is. Now, this isn't ego-driven, but I'll do it anyway: potential spoilers ahead.

The Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Leak and the Morals of Reporting It The Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Leak and the Morals of Reporting It

So, as you may have heard, an exploit has allowed Russian hackers to gain early access to the yet-to-be-released Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon faux April Fools expansion via Ubisoft's uPlay service. Spreading across the internet, like the fire-tech the series is renowned for, are videos showcasing the game running a whole…

News on Bioshock Infinite's DLC Incoming? News on Bioshock Infinite's DLC Incoming?

I just completed Bioshock Infinite on 1999 Mode to attain the "Scavenger Hunt" and "Auld Lang Syne" achievements and I noticed an interesting list of Placeholder DLC Achievements in my Steam Profile. Could it be that we're going to get info on the first Bioshock Infinite DLC soon? These also seem to suggest its…
