Magic 2015—Duels of the Planeswalkers Goes Next Generation

Magic 2015—Duels of the Planeswalkers Goes Next Generation

I actually reviewed Magic: The Gathering – Duels of the Planeswalkers 2014 on Pissed Off Geek and enjoyed the game, even though I’m not that much of a card based game fan.  Seeing that the next version of the game is going to be “next generation” is interesting, and I’m sure many fans will be happy with that.

Don’t you just hate spoilers? You have your favourite TV show, you are looking forward to that next instalment and then suddenly somebody goes and reveals the big event that happens.  Truth is I don’t really care about spoilers for myself, but what I do hate is the people who defend them without little thought of others.  So what kind of defense do we have for the spoilers, let’s take a look at a…

First Match Gameplay Footage for Blood Bowl 2

First Match Gameplay Footage for Blood Bowl 2

I guess I’m a retro game fan when I look at the trailer for Blood Bowl 2 and think of Speedball 2.  I know there is not that much to compare the two, but I’ll always look back at that game and remember how fun it was on the Amiga.  Using Games Workshop characters from their Warhammer board game, this is American football with Humans and Orcs.

The Annie Remake Gets a New International Trailer

The Annie Remake Gets a New International Trailer

We can ask why this remake needs to be done, or we can just accept it is finally here, or will be released in 2015 (6th February 2015 in the UK).  The fact is Anniehas been remade before and it is a story that works in the modern world without damaging the original.  Looking at the trailer, I’m not exactly sold on this interpretation but it does have one thing going for it, and that is the fact…

WWE Royal Rumble 2014 Review – Time for a Change…

Royal Rumble is a WWE event that I always enjoy, it’s the start of the “Road to Wrestlemania” and the actual match itself normally has a few interesting surprises and is action packed.  This year with WWE Royal Rumble 2014though something was building.  Now with hindsight it’s interesting to look back at this PPV and think, was it the WWE who misread the “Universe” or did they just not care?

Spelunky (PC) Review - The Addiction of Endless Dying

Spelunky (PC) Review – The Addiction of Endless Dying

Did you ever play a game called Rick Dangerous? The fact I’m asking that probably ages me slightly.  It was a platform games based on Indiana Jones and the controls were horrible.  What Rick Dangerous had though was charm that kept on calling you back, and this is why Spelunky, a very similar character keeps on calling me back.  Even if it is designed to kill you quicker than it had time to even…

Leverage: Complete Season 5 Review – All Good Things…

When a show reaches its final season there is an inevitability that things could end badly, though if you really like the characters you hope now.  With Leverage: Complete Season 5you would hope that the shows light-hearted sense of humour would mean that everybody ends up safe, but when you get to the final episode this becomes very questionable, though I’m not going to spoil it in a review…
