Enter the dragon….sprite……

I first learnt about Scratch at school, it is a programming language  were you code and make projects using a  graphical  interface. It teaches me the logic of programming, or at least that is what dad says.  What I really enjoy about it, is all the fun things that you can make, and all of the varieties of sprites that you can use. …

EA has pulled Battlefront 2 in-game purchases – for now.

Less than 24 hours into the official launch day and EA has pulled in game purchases. Earlier today I posted my initial impressions of Star Wars Battlefront 2. In it, I made the case that people should: “take a breath, put the controversy aside for the moment, and consider taking a chance on what I think is going to be …

First thoughts: Battlefront 2 is a beautiful game, despite the controversy.

  Star Wars Battlefront 2 is a beautiful game. After my first few hours of gameplay, I think it has a lot going for it. That’s in spite of the controversy around ‘loot boxes’ and progression. Before I share my initial impressions of Battlefront 2, lets address the AT-AT in the room. The loot box controversy This week, Star Wars …

Back in Time – Assassins Creed:Origins

It’s been 10 years since the first Assassins Creed title hit the shelves, and blew the mind of a whole generation of gamers. An action adventure series which has gone on to spawn 20 different games, as well as books, merchandise and in this authors opinion, one pretty ordinary movie, (Michael Fassbender notwithstanding); there even are rumours of a Netflix …

Guten Morgen Herr Blazkowicz

Bethesda’s sequel to the rebooted Wolfenstein franchise comes at a time when the political climate in the U.S. means that the extreme right has a much more visible presence than they have in many decades.  So I wonder if MachineGames who started developing this title in 2014, look at the current state of U.S. politics and scratch their heads in …

Open the pod bay doors

As I mentioned in a previous post, I am a total podcast junkie, politics, social issues, science and tech and comedy, history, culture, If you’ve recorded it, I’ll listen to it. (Not Hannity or Info Wars… I tried, I’m sorry…NO ! ) What is a podcast?  if you’re a millennial or younger you can probably scroll past this bit, but …

And now for something completely different…..

Like a lot of people around the world, I have been become a little obsessed with American politics, with the rise of the then candidate Trump on wave of nationalism and populism, through the republican primaries and on to the general election, waiting his campaign to run off the rails…for him to utter that one lie, make that one gaff …

Star Wars Battlefront 2: Restoring balance to the Force?

Can the upcoming ‘Battlefront 2’ strike the right balance between satisfying the hardcore shooter crowd and the Star Wars fan seeking a game that’s easy to pick up and play? When it comes to first-person shooter (FPS) games, I’ll be the first to admit I’m a bit of a klutz. Even in my youthful peak my reflexes were never that …

Eyes Up Guardian !

  I have a love/hate relationship with the original Destiny. Bungie’s first offering after parting of the ways with Microsoft and the incredibility successful Halo franchise was filled with so much promise and excitement. At the time rumours circulated that the game had a budget of approximately $500 million, a claim Bungie has since refuted.… It had a star studded …
