Nidhogg 2 review

En Garde

The first question that most people will likely have about Nidhogg 2 is "What in the name of all that is holy IS a Nidhogg?"....well these people should probably use google a bit more really, but the answer to that question is a serpent/dragon from Norse mythology that nibbles on the roots of the world tree. In the world of Nidhogg 2 however it's a giant, grotesque worm that you must sacrifice yourself to. Reports that the design was based on Steve Bannon's true form have yet to be confirmed.

7 of the best bite sized anime

Oh hai, Jason here

Sometimes in an average everyday human beings life they don't want entertainment that takes up hours of their precious time that could be better used buying kale and watching gifs of newsreaders vomiting live on air...sometimes a person wants nice juicy bite sized chunks of entertainment that can watch with a single kettle boiling instalment. Good news all as while game of thrones will never give you a series of shorts revolving around Podrick Payne's day to day life cleaning armour, anime has you covered with a choice selection of bite sized anime that lasts from a mere 3 minutes up to a max of 15.

LFCC 2017 - An Awesome Day!

The London Film & Comic con came round again last month, and luckily I had the time to get out there for the Saturday. Even better, I had the inclination to pick up a ticket a decent amount of time before hand.

As always, the actual star turnout for this was excellent with celebrities like John Cleese, Benedict Cumberbatch and Wil Wheaton. The Cosplay crowd as always was exceptional with some downright amazing costumes and some bridging the line from costume to piece of engineering, and I had a wonderful time chatting a photographing as many as I could.

The event wasn't entirely without trouble though, as the organisers seemed to seriously underestimate the numbers and many of us had to line in some quite baffling ways before being allowed to move from the train station to the Olympia centre. However, once inside we were able to quickly make our way to the convention proper with little delay or issue.

My personal high points for the event was getting my copy of Ashes of Valkana (its an RPG book) signed by Wil Wheaton, who helped create the setting and game as well as ran a celebrity game online (which I loved). I feel I gained points by not pestering him about a season 2 for this awesome game, however, I probably dropped my points into the minuses when I told him I wasn't pestering him about season 2 (smooth I am not). All in all, he seemed really nice, if tired (he had only recently flown over and it was his birthday so I can't really fault him on that). 

In contrast to Wil Wheaton, my meeting with Game of Thrones star Kristian Nairn was considerably more energetic as I told him I really loved his work on the final Mythica movie and he proceeded to tell me about what it was like on the set and about another film he recently acted in for the same company (which I intend to find and watch!), an absolutely lovely guy. I was also happy to get my 4th photo with a member of the Firefly crew (Alan Tudyk) our meeting was brief but amusing as I told him that he was my favourite to play a chicken and he told me how it was a really competitive field to be in!

All in all, I had a fantastic day and I am looking forward to the next con I will leave you with a long list of awesome cosplay pics and with any luck I will have a Costume of my own prepped and ready to roll soon!

My top 5...Playstation 1 games

Oh hai, Jason here.

Get ready y'all, becomes we've hit the most important of all the consoles I've ever owned...the original Playstation. Before I came into possession of this little Grey box of electronic joy I'd intended to ask for an N64 to be placed under my Christmas tree, but pushed back release dates caused me to get pretty fed up and start paying attention to what else was out there. The rest as they say, is history and my first year of owning the PS1, coupled with a boring summer holiday and the local video rental store transformed me into a full fat hardcore gamer that still plays anything he can get his grubby hands on to this day. It's also worth noting that this isn't just my top 5 PS1 games....this list is my top 5 games full stop. Yep every one of my five favourite gaming experiences are PS1 games (although in fairness, one would be more associated with PC). Let's do this thing.

Weekly Videogame News (30/07)

Oh hai, Jason here

Dance readers, dance around in unbridled joy as its time for the fun filled cream bun that is the weekly news, lets do this thing.

Playstation Plus price hike

Sad news as Sony announced a price hike for Playstation plus in Europe. As of the 31st of August a full year will be £49.99, £19.99 for three months and £6.99 for a single month. It's not clear why this increase is happening (Likely just good old fashioned greed) but with Until Dawn this month and Just Cause 3 in August this may mean full fat games will be included for good...lets hope so.
