Freeplay Frenchie Reviews Assassin’s Creed

Freeplay Frenchie Reviews Assassin’s Creed Like most gamers witnessing their favourite franchises convert to cinema, I was apprehensive to say the least about the Assassin’s Creed movie. Though I had heard some things to suggest it could be a success, such as Ubisoft retaining most of the control about which directions to take the film in and thus create a film that fans could be proud...

StrangeBooks from Brighton!

Although University had its trials and tribulations for me, I will say that I am so grateful to my creative writing tutors for introducing me to the art of short stories and flash fiction, because to me that’s what it is. I would say I have a stronger connection to flash fiction, because it’s shorter, and because it demands more of you in fewer words, but also because there’s les...

They are a fantastic couple of people who organise retro gaming nights at our local Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar and The Hare and Hounds, totally free! I...

How to make your Female NPCs more realistic in Dungeons and Dragons!

How to make your Female NPCs more realistic in Dungeons and Dragons! I was unaware that this was really an issue in D&D, however it has been brought to my attention that as D&D is still primarily popular with men that sometimes it can be difficult to create authentic female characters. Without realizing, I created several female NPCs who had large parts to play in my campaign and analysing...

Independence Day: Resurgence Review

Independence Day: Resurgence Review If you’ve not taken a look yet at some of the reviews for Independence Day: Resurgence, spoiler alert, they’re not kind. With scores of 34% on Metacritic and 34% on Rotten Tomatoes the skies are dark indeed. However, this fan was more than satisfied with the ‘popcorn chaos’ that ensued. Despite being far too back from the screen for my li...

The Jungle Book Review

The Jungle Book “Forget about your worries and your strife”   Movies have slowly become a family tradition for me: I have a lot of fond memories driving up to the local Harkins with my Mom and Brother and seeing more movies than I can remember during my 27 years (bloody hell I’m getting old.) This tradition has introduced me to some truly crappy movies (I’m looking at you The Fifth Wave) and some ...

Top 5 Games from a Galaxy Far Far Away Maybe you’re a lifelong fan who remembers waiting in line for that strange George Lucas movie. Maybe some of your earliest memories are of watching weathered copies of the original trilogy on VHS. Maybe you’re a more recent or younger fan who remembers pretending to be Darth Maul wielding a $5.00 plastic lightsaber, or maybe you’re brand new...

First Impressions: The Shannara Chronicles

First Impressions: Shanarra Chronicles With the wild success of Game of Thrones, Outlander, and various other fantasy shows MTV has decided to join the fight with a dog of their own. That dog is none other than Terry Brooks’ Sword of Shannara trilogy which was originally written in 1977. This was a surprise to me personally since MTV and Sword and Magic has never quite gone hand in hand. Alt...
