Transfomers: From Cybertron's Fall to Prime

I am a huge Transformers nerd. It's one of my Big 4 childhood franchises, though I do tend to drift away from it. But every now and again something comes along that has me looking back to see what's on offer. Once again it's High Moon Studios that have got me to return to the war between the Autobots and Decepticons with Transformers: Fall of Cybertron.

Fall is awesome! That's quite an opening statement but I feel quite safe saying it. Its predecessor, War on Cybertron, was pretty damn good but something was slightly lacking. Looking back, while the three player co-op was fun it severely hamstrung the game at the same time. No robot stood apart from the rest, they all felt like one homogeneous whole. It's understandable, the person playing Bumblebee has to be just as capable as the one playing Optimus Prime, despite all evidence to the contrary.

BeefJack: The Podcast!

After being the man behind the GeekGasms.org podcast for just over a year, when we started talking about a possible BeefJack one I was all over it. Well today sees our first official podcast go live, and I show off the art of seamless transitions.

Go listen to Lewis Denby, Simon Williams and my "northern underwater robot" voice. Cheers for that Jamie.

Hopefully many more to come.

BeefJack: Inquisitor review

After making a lot of noise about the Baldur's Gate re-release our reviews editor cottoned onto the fact that I have a bit of a soft spot for the 90s style iosmetric RPGs so he offered me Inquisitor. A Czech game that may be just three years old but it feels like it could be thirteen. That's a good thing by the way.

Bet you can't guess what my next review is going to be?
