    Top Spinners 3: Northern X-posure

    Now, if you’ve read part one and part two of this column you may feel like I’m pretty much in favour of spin-offs, but that’s only about half right. I’m very much in favour of...

    Comics! We’ve got comics here! Check out what we’re reading! Read what we’re reading! Tell us what you’re reading! Comics! COMICS!! What’s on YOUR Pull List?...

So over the past few weeks, we’ve established that spin offs happen all the time; sometimes when you least expect them and often when you don’t want them, but they happen. Comics might have been doing them longer than most but it’s largely due to their serialized nature and high production speed. There is, however,...

This review will be very difficult to write without abusing the phrase, “Like Bastion, but…” It feels like that is the logical fate when an indie studio, like Supergiant games, makes a follow-up to a smash success like Bastion. They lack a back-catalog of good and bad games that a large, long standing, company has,...

September 10, 2014 | 0 Comments

‘Twas the summer of Iggy Azalea.  She won’t show up on this list, but that’s because you probably heard “Fancy” approximately 85,000 times this summer, and if you weren’t hearing “Fancy”, you were probably hearing her featured on “Problem” by Ariana Grande.  Iggy is unquestionably the artist of the summer, particularly with those two hits...
