We review TMNT: Out of the Shadows – The turtles rise from the shadows of their predecessor

The plot is at times quite ludicrous, the stupidity of the henchmen almost unnerving and much of the dialogue cheesy, but then so was the cartoon show. If you loved the original cartoons, you are likely to enjoy this. Turtle power is most certainly alive in this one.

We review The BFG – A big, friendly crowd-pleaser

With its pacing and scripting issues, I highly doubt it will ever attain the timeless status of its source material.

The Technomancer review – A Future of Rust and Dirt

Technomancer makes a valiant effort to be the next big open world RPG and comes close to achieving it, but in the end it feels like the developer was trying to fit too many things in to one game.

Teen idols who need to fight a strange evil force with the power of their performances? Why yes, this is a JRPG, but a pretty strategic and deep one.

We review Independence Day: Resurgence – Welcome to meh!

With no quote-worthy star presence to sell all the hokey dialogue and half-baked scenes, or make you forget about all the smothering lactic fumbles, this long awaited sequel is not so much resurgent as it is disappointing.

Is Valentino Rossi: The Game the ultimate expression of adoration for the number 46? Yes, yes it is. And no, no it isn’t at the same time.
