Advance Comic Review: Steven Universe and the Crystal Gems #1

As a cartoon, Steven Universe is way smarter and more involving than it has any right to be. Following the adventures of a young boy and his three magical guardians, the show is a funny and exciting piece of children’s TV which has subtly dealt with themes such as racism, gay rights, and even consent. As a comic book series, Steven Universe previously had a 12-issue run of anthology issues, with various writers and artists...

Review – Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4

Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is the newest entry into the staggeringly long-running Naruto Ultimate Ninja fighting game series. With the anime finally coming to a close, Ninja Storm 4 sets out to wrap up the Naruto storyline while also building upon its last instalment. This means another game with a truckload of ninjas to play as and a fast and flashy fighting system. For better or worse, Ninja Storm 4 is a game that assumes you’re...

PlatinumGames’ Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is Now Officially a Thing

Yes, the worst kept secret in video games has been “unveiled” today: PlatinumGames are working on a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles video game, subtitled Mutants in Manhattan. The official site is a little barebones but it’s now live, along with links to both Facebook and Twitter pages.

Superman/Wonder Woman HeroClix – Starring Earth-2, The Elite and More…

It’s been a while since we had our introductory HeroClix content up, where we took a week to check out the Marvel flavoured version of the game. Specifically we looked at the game from the point of view as brand new players and comic book fans, giving an outsider’s perspective to the game and seeing if we could be converted into HeroClix fans. I’m happy to report that we really enjoyed the miniatures and the game itself, as you can...

Review: The Walking Dead #150 – Betrayal

For a 150th issue, this week’s The Walking Dead is surprisingly mundane. That said, a mundane issue of The Walking Dead is often still a damn good comic book. Perhaps it’s a testament to all the hype and marketing buzz that surrounds comic book milestones these days, but I really expected something huge, a shocking death or a vital new character’s introduction. Yet despite the important and impactful events of #150, it’s nothing you...

Review – Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India (PS4)

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles India is the second instalment in the new Chronicles trilogy, a set of games that are perhaps best thought of as spiritual sequels to the classic 2D Prince of Persia games. With 2.5D platforming and a focus on stealthily avoiding lethal guards, Chronicles instalments are quite far removed from the primary open world Assassin’s Creed games. Chronicles: India stars protagonist Arbaaz Mir, who previously...
