Raging Bull Review

Raging Bull Studios: Chartoff-Winkler Productions Publisher: United Artists Platforms: Cinema Release Date: Out Now Overview I’ve never been much of a fan of sports genre films as I find their narrative progression to largely remain immutable across multiple instances. I’m generally uninterested in seeing a likeable, underdog protagonist come up against and then best a rival in the athletic arena ...

State of the EB Expo

Too often the gaming public in Australia get shafted when it comes to games and gaming more often than not when it comes to attention from the big publishers. For a country which spans a continent, we don’t really have that large a population and it follows that as a gaming market we are small potatoes when it comes to the Asia-Pacific region. What we lack in numbers, however, we make up for in sh...

Horizon Zero Dawn Hands-On Preview

After seeing Horizon Zero Dawn announced at last year’s E3, I have been eagerly consuming every tidbit of media about the game which has since come out. Developed by Guerrilla Games and published by Sony, the game features an incredibly intriguing new setting in which biomechanical life has become dominant upon the Earth. Imagine my surprise when I found out a working code of the game would be ava...

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Hands-On Preview

The first thing I noticed upon entering the world of Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is that it is, in fact, a world. What I mean by that is that in previous Zelda titles on consoles, such as Windwaker, Ocarina of Time and Skyward Sword, Nintendo created the feeling of an expansive world by essentially creating vast spaces of emptiness for the players to traverse. Basicall...

Playstation VR Luge Hands-On

Last weekend, I was able to grab some time with the Playstation VR headset and to try out one of the mini-games in the soon to be released Playstation VR Worlds. We’ve previously had a look at one of the other entries in this collection, The London Heist, and had a grand old time with it. This time around, I was taking a turn at Luge. I dropped onto a bean bag in front of the screen and put on the...

Boyz n the Hood Review

Boyz n the Hood Studios: Columbia Pictures Platforms: Cinema Release Date: Out Now Overview Before being called up to review Boyz n the Hood, I had never heard of it nor knew of its prominence. I’m a fan of television dramas such as The Wire and the recently released Luke Cage which both deal with life as working class/underclass African-Americans but somehow missed hearing about this film which w...

Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade Kicks Off

The game has gone through a period of closed alpha play and early access on steam but as of the 23rd of this month, it is now in full release.

The Godfather Review

The Godfather Studios: Alfran Productions Publisher: Paramount Pictures Platforms: Cinema Release Date: Out Now Overview Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather is considered one of the cinema’s dramatic masterpieces. Helmed by a master auteur, the admittedly lacklustre original novel by Mario Puzo was turned into grand tragedy for the silver screen. It’s an epic exploring themes of family loyalty, h...

Leon the Professional Review

Leon the Professional Studios: Les Films Du Dauphin, Gaumont Publisher: Buena Vista International Platforms: Cinema Release Date: Out Now Overview I’ll be honest and say that before I was called upon to watch Léon the Professional for work, I did not know much about Luc Besson’s work besides The Fifth Element. Leon was his immediate directorial project previous to Fifth Element and that it apparen...
