WHAT I’M EXPECTING As Batman popped his head out from this years E3 he brought high expectations and I’m hoping that Batman: Arkham Knight is just as good as the last one…. no I want it BETTER with more fights, gadgets, enemies and story to discover! I have my doubts and the question on everyones mind is what is Batman going to do without the joker?? it’s like the Yin without the Yang… also warning spoiler’s (more…)

So we recently moved into our new building where we’ll be holding our club, and on Friday we had our first games night there. How did it go? Did our new building benefit the games night?


On Friday 3rd May we had our 2nd Spectrum games night. I think it came around quicker than a lot of people were anticipating as some people like Jack and Jimmy already had plans then. Regardless the games night went ahead as planned.



Personally I enjoy watching TV game shows. They’re fun to play yourself at home and test your knowledge or to laugh at people who give daft answers. My personal favourite game show is the BBC series Pointless which is sort of like the inverse of Family Fortunes, instead of common answers you have to find obscure answers. Me and Dave went to see a live recording of it in London, but how was it?



Greetings mortals. I am DracoJames102 and I am here to give you a review.

For my first review on this blog, I am going to review the very first video game I ever played (well the Game Boy Colour port anyway), the original 8-bit Super Mario Bros.

Super Mario Bros. was released for the Nintendo Entertainment System (N.E.S) in 1985 and is considered a classic in the video gaming industry. It is the second best selling video game of all time right next to Wii Sports. But is it as good as it was back then? Well we’re going to find out.




Dishonoured is one of those surprises that come along now and then that totally redefines the genre it is classed as. In this case the stealth genre. Unlike recent splinter cell games where the layout is more linear Dishonoured gives you a more open-ended approach much like Hitman Blood Money or most notably the Thief Series. Our Protagonist is Corvo Antano a bodyguard for the empress of dunwall who has recently come back from an assignment to try and find a cure for the rat plague that has hit the city. However things take a turn for the worst when the empress is murdered and her daughter is kidnapped, Corvo is framed for it and goes on a quest to clear his name meeting many characters along the way. The games writing does its job for what it is trying to achieve even throwing twists to the plot to keep you interested. The big problem with the story is the characters, they feel one dimensional (with the possible exception of the outsider) and opportunity is missed when you go back to your base to characterise them further. As for the look of the game people say it is a moving painting and I agree. The game is beautiful and has a certain cartoonish style while at the same time retaining the grime atmosphere you are in.
