Now the top grossing animation of all time, there seems to be no stopping the Frozen craze. From Disney Infinity figures, to limited edition dolls to ‘Let It Go’ plaguing every radio station (though that’s not necessarily a bad thing), it’s difficult to escape it. From directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee who have credits in their résumé that range from Tarzan to Wreck-It Ralph, the film was always in good hands. Pair them with a cast including A-lister Kristen Bell and a number of ... Read More

Deception IV: Blood Ties

Sunday, 20 April 2014
Back in 1996 Tecmo released Deception: Invitation to Darkness, a exclusive PlayStation title that despite causing a bit of controversy and also being a pretty fun game, didn't take off like some of Tecmo's better known titles. That said, it did find itself a loyal fan base, a fan base that ultimately allowed Tecmo to develop two sequels and a spin-off, Trapt. Though slightly different in a number of ways, Trapt remained the most recent entry in the series up until now. But instead of giving ... Read More

Kinect Sports Rivals

Friday, 18 April 2014
Motion controlled gaming is nothing new, and stretches back past even what the Wii brought to the table in 2006. Once Nintendo began to dominate the market, Sony and Microsoft scrambled to tap into the “casual” market, a market that they hoped would bring in the big bucks. Sony aimed to deliver with the PlayStation Move, which was essentially two advanced Wii remotes. Microsoft however tried something a little more daring, and in 2010 came the Kinect; a motion controlled device that told ... Read More

inFamous: Second Son

Thursday, 17 April 2014
Warning: The following contains spoilers for inFamous 2.When Sucker Punch Productions released inFamous for the PS3 in 2009, it took everyone a little by surprise. Keep in mind that Sucker Punch Productions were the team behind the classic Sly Cooper series, so on the surface a game like inFamous seemed a little out of their comfort zone. But upon playing inFamous all the doubters were proven wrong, and their first attempt at the superhero genre was hugely successful. A sequel followed, that ... Read More

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Wednesday, 16 April 2014
Peter Jackson has done it again. Not only has he brought a decades old novel to the silver screen but he’s given it such life, such character and such vision that you can really believe in it. The Lord of the Rings trilogy was arguably some of the finest film-making in modern history and at the same time remain faithful to its source material. Such was the effect of the trilogy, that it was only a matter of time before Jackson turned his attentions to the more light-hearted novel that J.R.R. ... Read More

inAPPropriate Comedy

Tuesday, 15 April 2014
You know those films that are “so bad they're good”? Troll 2, Samurai Cop, Battlefield Earth, Plan 9 From Outer Space, Star Crash and many more fall into this category. And I love them! Sometimes there's nothing better than sitting back with some friends and watching a film so bad, so utterly dreadful, that it's just completely hilarious. You know, like the equivalent of watching a train crash... that's full of clowns. I came to inAppropriate Comedy assuming that it would be one of those ... Read More

Yoshi's New Island

Monday, 14 April 2014
I Feel bad for Nintendo. I mean, the Wii U as of right now is selling worse than the Dreamcast did. That's not good at all. Don't get me wrong, the Dreamcast deserved far more attention than it ultimately got, and the Wii U is nowhere near as glorious as Sega's final console, but Nintendo's latest effort is a great little machine. But Nintendo, unlike many other companies, can afford to screw up here. Why? Because the Nintendo 3DS is selling so damn well, only being outsold worldwide by the ... Read More

John Dies at the End

Sunday, 13 April 2014
John Dies at the End is the brainchild of Cracked.com executive editor Jason Pargin, whose comedy-horror novel and its sequel This Book Is Full of Spiders – both published under the pseudonym David Wong – have amassed an impressive cult following. Pargin’s stories started life on his old website, as a relatively unheard-of web-serial with new chapters released every Halloween. Using online feedback to tweak his writing, Pargin was able to secure a book deal and, shortly afterwards, ... Read More
