Western Coin-Op is Missing Out: A Short Piece on the “Game Centre”

If you’re into video games in any kind of measure then you have seen something like the above image. That is a rail shooter and one of the most famous ones to boot and while not all arcade machines are rail shooters I can guarantee that no matter what country you come from, you have seen something that looks like one of those. Now allow me to take a moment to tell you a story of my childhood. A long long time ago, in a land far, far away known as London, there was an absolutely massive arcade Read more [...]

‘Attack the Block’ Director for Star Trek 3?

J.J. Abrams is a busy, busy boy.

And I liked that Read more [...]

GOTTA CATCH ‘EM ALL – Pokémon X & Y Review

Another Year, Another Pokémon game. We all know the story. New trainer, new rival, new monsters to catch and train, new gyms to battle, new badges to earn and a new region to explore and conquer. It's a formula that sells and that is far from broken. But while this Pokémon game follows the same formula, it differs in a few key aspects that not only make this experience better but set a new benchmark for all future games to follow. STORY 8/10 As with most Pokémon games, there isn't Read more [...]
